We all know they are annoying so let’s fess up and hear ’em. I’ll go first:
-I pull at my curly hair. My mom is always saying “stop ripping out your curls!”. I do it until my head of hair is a big giant mess of frizz. Yeah, no self-control on this one. I blame adhd for some reason. Helps me focus.
-I bite my nails. I am a former smoker (2 years smoke-free) and now working on the nail biting. Ick.
-I can’t stand it when people dish my food out for me.
-I have to use the same coffee cup. Every day. Or else.
-I pee like 10 times before bed. Anxiety or too much coffee?
-I have the attention of…well, a peanut. Or a little more. But not by much. lol.
-I hate big forks. Yup. I like those salad or dessert forks. And I can’t stand big soup spoons or tablespoons for eating! I like small teaspoons for eating soup.
-If I accidently mark a dot on a page I am about to write on, I have to turn it and start “fresh”
There are many many more but I don’t want to totally bore you. Please share yours!

I can’t believe there aren’t more bees with annoying habits or a bit of OCD! I share your hatred of big eating utensils – I only eat with a teaspoon or a small salad fork; it drives me crazy that FI uses ‘normal’ utensils!
I also can’t stand clothes that aren’t folded the right way. I will unfold them and re-fold them to get the creases correct.
* drawers or cupboards being left open
* piles of anything that are not in nice, straight lines
* leaving dishes in the sink
* clothes left on the floor
I’m sure I could go on and on but will stop for now.

I am soooo weird.
– peel and paint my nails at least once a day. If the polish is chipped, i sit there and peel all of the polish off my nails, and re-paint them. Drives FI nuts.
– Bed HAS to be made before I get into it. If the covers aren’t straight, forget it…I won’t sleep at all.
– I hate seeing cords. They have to be tucked away or I just start unplugging things and trying to make it so I can’t see them.
– I clean at all hours of the night. If I’m having a bad day, I start cleaning at 11pm. It wasn’t until I lived with FI that I realized that wasn’t normal. C’mon, what’s wrong with vacuuming at midnight??
I’m sure there are more…but I just can’t think of them at the moment 🙂

I share a lot of qualities with you ladies 🙂
@elliegraye: People dishing out my food. People using “my cup” I have a coffee bowl/mug that I am stupidly overprotective of. Big forks and small spoons, I like salad forks and soup spoons.
@Ree723: Drawers being left open. Clothes being left on the floor. Dishes being left on the counter (no prob w/ them in the sink, as long as they make it to the dishwasher!)
@napabridekelsey: Bed being made before bedtime, I’m SOO glad I’m not the only one 🙂 Oh, and I love cleaning at night, too!
Some of my own: Starting to watch a tv show and not being able to finish it. My FI not closing the cereal box the right way. Just bc he can’t notice it’s stale doesn’t mean I can’t! Being woken up. Having to wake up when I’ve had less than six/seven hours sleep. (I’m mean!)
Oh, and I could write a BOOK about my pet peeves while driving.
K…. I’m gonna leave it at that for the night 🙂

I know this is probably SO weird but if I even have to pee a little bit before bed, I have to get up. Even.If.It’s.One.Drop. It’s SO weird. I cannot go to bed without a completely empty bladder. I should just wear a diaper lol so I wouldn’t have to get up so much.
– I have hundereds of nails polishes and when I paint my nail if I see one airbubble, I chip them all off.
-I refuse to use a towel that hasn’t been in the dryer 5 minutes before I shower
Those are pretty much the weird ones lol. Gosh I realize how weird I am now that I type it out haha.

I’m a nail biter. Have been since I was a kid.
I also have this weird habit of smelling things. Especially food. I smell damn near everything. Things you would never think to smell. New universal TV remote? Yep, sniffed it. That chocolate that I’ve been eating for years? Yep, sniff each piece before I eat it. It can be reall annoying, but only because people think I’m a looney.
I also talk to strangers, almost compulsively. I was raised in the South where that is common, but it’s certainly not accepted up here in the Pacific Northwest. It really seems to bother FI sometimes, which is surprising, because his mother was also raised in the south. She and I are soooo much alike. You’d think he’d be used to this part.
I hate raw meat. I will bag it the second I pick it at the store. It has to be kept under the cart away from the other foods while we finishing shopping. At check out, it’s the last thing on the conveyor belt. It HAS to be bagged all by it’s self. I have made stores switch out items they placed in bags with raw meat, it’s that bad. I once got home from the store to find my steak packed in with bread and fruit (!), I drove my happy ass 4 miles back to the store and asked for replacement bread and fruits. Cooking it is a pain too. I keep latex gloves in my kitchen just for handling meat. I always end up washing my hands 6 or 7 times during dinner prep because I’m worried about bacteria cross-contamination.

@napabridekelsey: Oh my! I can’t stand when the sheets are all crazy and disheveled. It makes me insane! FI likes to roll and take the blankets with him when he sleeps and they are a mess when I come home. He can slide into them while they’re still a mess and I can’t deal. I have to tuck the corners of the sheet, straighten it out along with the comforter. And don’t even get me started about the tag of said comforter being at the foot of the bed. (That is it’s HOME.)
If I have a zit, or spot on my face or anywhere on my body I cannot. leave. it. alone. Then it blows up into something monsterous and fugly.
I can’t stand for my feet to be dry and touch ANYTHING. Especially blankets that they can get snagged on….blahhhhhh. Makes my skin CRAWL!
I brush my teeth A LOT. I have a toothbrush and mouthwash in my locker at work.
I don’t like fried chicken.
The shower curtain must be closed at all times.
There are more, but I don’t want you guys to think I’m TOO much of a freak 😉

@elliegraye: DH hates big forks/spoons too! Weird!
– I crack my knuckles all the time.
-I hate the shower curtain being left open
-drawers/cabinets being left open
-if I am writing something and my handwriting doesnt look as perfect as it could be or if I make an accidental mark I will start on a new page of paper

Well, I actually have OCD. As in, I take medication for it and have a doctor for it. My biggest thing is, I have to check the mail before I can relax and get on with my day. It makes my husband crazy to take me anywhere if we haven’t checked the mail, and when we got out of town my parents know they have to call me and let me know what was in the mail. I don’t know why this is, it just is. Kinda sucks.

My most annoying habit for my husband is not closing doors all the way.
I have an issue with not closing closet doors, cabinets, etc. I have gotten SO much better though! 😉
My OCD is chicken. Yuck. When we cut chicken I have to spray the whole counter twice with bleach. Some days it’s so bad I have to make my husband cut it.

@Gerbera: I don’t cook chicken for this reason. I can’t stand to touch it when it’s raw. It’s all slimy. Blech. The most I can do it toss it in a crock pot. lol

hehe. On bad days I have to change my clothes and take a shower after cutting chicken! I haven’t done that in a while though.
