mahadewi :  I am the same!! Darling Husband & I close our bedroom door just because I like doors closed lol I guess in that case I won’t wake up and just see a random person standing in my doorway!

PrincessPeach13 :  This one tends to happen first thing in the morning. When sleeping on my side, sometimes the shoulder I sleep on gets a littl”scrunched” like I’m shrugging on one side. When I wake up and stretchm I then “pull” my shoulder down (almost like when you sit up straight and tall with shoulders down) and there they go.

sassy411 :  I have a spoon thing too except it’s the opposite: there’s one spoon that’s different than all the others and I refuse to use it. I don’t know why I don’t just get rid of it.

ETA: Another quirk of mine was that I would compulsively type words I thought or someone said. So if someone said “spaghetti” I would type out spaghetti on my fingers against my leg over and over again. Luckily, somehow this just went away as I got older.

I used to have the typing thing two.  It also went away for me.

I enjoy sniffing dry sponges, the type you wash yourself with.

squishee :  I also have the last bite of food making me gag thing, although it affects me less frequently nowadays. It’s so weird!  

Pruny fingers is the worst for me. I love baths but cannot put my hands in ever. And then drying my feet after is the worst… 

Probably my weirdest is numbers. I am not dislexic, and maths was easily my best subject at school but I get so panicked and anxious when reading out long numbers (which is annoying, as I have to do this for my job). I’m fine if I’m writing down something that someone else is saying, but if I’m the one reading it out I just can’t do it!

If I’m walking with someone and then stop briefly (like to tie up my shoelace) I have to continue walking afterwards on the same side of the person I was on before. I have no idea why. I hate being on one side of somebody and then switching to the other side during the same journey. I’m weird.

I don’t even know how to describe this, but my husband does this thing where his mouth moves while you are talking to him, as if he were saying the words that you are saying. Like especially when the conversation is stressful…and then it almost feels like he’s trying to guess what you’re going to say and it’s infuriating. 

Someone else in his family (brother or something) has the same quirk. So annoying! 😩

I don’t touch door knobs or share pens.  If I have to touch a door knob I will pull down my sleeve, even in a professional setting.  I will refuse the pen pass in team meetings.  Oh I also refuse to particpate in potlucks.  And I loathe being wet unless I’m fully submerged, like swimming or bathtub.  I hate showers.

One thing I can think of, when I’m putting up clean dishes, I have to put the newly cleaned dish on the bottom of the stack in the cabinets. I worry that if I keep putting them on top, and then using the same ones on the very top, I’ll eventually wear the dishes out. They need to be on a rotation.

I have a fear of downward escalators. I will take the stairs or an elevator.

I don’t like ladders…..mind you I am not afraid of heights at all just ladders. Up a 70 story building and want to look over the edge, all good, roller coasters, love em but 8 inches off the ground on a ladder and I’m nearly hyperventilating and cling on for dear life. My partner didn’t believe that it would be a problem on small short ladders where there is no risk of falling, nope he had to “rescue” me stuck two rings up and now I am no longer allowed to go into our attic storage if he is not home. I know it’s stupid I could fall off and would probably barely hurt myself but there you go.

I feel like I have a ton of quirks so I’ll list them out but I’m sure I’ll think of more lol

1. I hate my neck being touched, it makes me twitch for hours after someone does it.  

2. I refuse to write with anything other than a pen unless it is mandatory like a test, the noise pencils and markers make on paper is like fingers on a chalkboard to me (which I also hate).

3. When walking through stores I randomly have to touch things to feel the material, it’s mostly clothing items but occasionally other stuff, I can’t stand the feeling of microfiber.. it makes my skin crawl.

4.  I can’t stand the feeling of being wet especially wearing wet clothes, even if it is just a small water splash I have to change immediately or I’m extremely uncomfortable, like SisterJude  I also hate showers/baths. 

5. Oversized muffins and cupcakes (like the costco ones) have to be eaten with a knife and fork, I don’t like the crumbly pieces getting under my nails.

6. If I have a snag or rip in my nail I will bite/pick at it until it is reshaped correctly, to the point where it becomes obsessive, I will full on stop talking in the middle of a sentence even if it is a super important conversation to bite my nail so my husband will have to pull my hand away from my mouth and hold on to it so that I can finish what I was saying. 

** I have a co-worker who likes to poke my neck and sprays me with water almost every time he sees me and my husband loves to touch my arms or face when he has wet hands.
