So just for fun, what is one thing you are really picky about? Or more than one, if you want to share more! Anything from an object to a brand to a routine, anything at all.
I’ll start. Toilet paper! I have one specific brand that I think is the absolute best and I really prefer to not use other brands. I will use others if I have to, like when my suitemate buys random kinds for our shared bathroom. If it’s my turn to buy though, I always ultra soft Charmin.
Another thing I guess for me would be (also tp related, ha!) which way the roll of tp rolls. I prefer it to be put on so that the part I grab is close to me, and not the wall.
What about you bees? Anything you’re really picky or particular about?

Timeliness. I will not, ever, ever be late (unless it’s out of my control). Fiance is starting to get better about being on time, since it constantly becomes an issue! I stop making plans with people who are constantly late for things (a friend of mine was 45 minutes late to sometihng because she was “folding her laundry.” That’s it for me!)

Oh that’s a good one! My mom used to always ‘to be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late’. 45 minutes late folding laundry?!

Jewelry. I’m not one to buy a lot of rings and jewelry. I save a long time and buy very specific pieces and stones, and when I do they pretty much need to be perfect. Jewelers roll their eyes when they see my email address pop up.
I am picky about my cereal! I only buy the name brand, not store. My husband always tries to buy the big bags of the store brands, but I’m not having it.
I’m picky about fruit. I am that weirdo that will drive to 3 different places to buy different types of fruit.

I freak out if I accidently touchthe rim of a rubbish bag. I carry the garbage by the tips of my fingers to the skip with a bottle of atiseptic alcohol gel in the other hand. I feel my hands twitchy just typing this, and I have just washed my hands again because of writing it.
I can’t eat re-heated/second plating fish. Salmon the next day is a no-go for me.
I cry and call my mum if I vomit.
And I am petrified of moths.

I’m really picky about how much clothes fit. I hate if they’re too loose or too tight in an unflattering way. I like them to be very fitted. I’m particularly obsessive about how my underwear fits as that can ruin an otherwise lovely outfit.
Otherwise I’m really picky about spelling and grammar (even though I sometimes slip up myself).

I am really picky about certain kinds of food. Some items I don’t mind the store brand and others I get so mad if my SO tries to get me to eat store brand. Sometimes it makes a huge difference. Cereal is one, cottage cheese is a big one, cheese-its as well. There are more but I don’t want to make this too long.

I’m picky about food as well. Some things must be brand name, some must be store brand from a specific store. I’m also very picky about how my shirts are folded. I hate folding laundry, but when I do it takes forever b/c of how I have to fold them.

I am very picky about etiquette, especially when throwing a party or something like that. It urks me to no end when people do not use proper party ettiquette when throwing a party.
My food can not touch on my plate. If my food touches I will not eat it and I only eat one food item at a time, so I have to eat all my green beans before moving on to my corn or something else.
Because I am so picky about how everything looks and goes together when I throw a party or cook a holiday dinner for the family, I never let people bring things and it actually kinda gets on peoples nerves and maybe offends them a little, but I don’t care. I believe that if I invite you to something at my house then it is my job to provide what ever needs to be provided and all you need to do is show up, relax, and enjoy.
I too must have the toliet paper roll facing outward not in towards the wall.

Meat! i love meat but i’m really weird about it – i butcher it until there is absolutely no fat on it before cooking…if it’s been in the freezer too long i’ll throw it out. i inspect it while i’m eating it, before each bite. chicken, beef, pork…doesnt matter.

My biggest fear is vomiting, so most of my pickiness revolves around that. I won’t eat anything that has touched pickles, won’t eat pickles, olives, or ginger ale (all factored in to getting sick at one time or another), and I won’t let leftovers sit in the fridge for more than 3 days. And I get worried when other people are cooking, especially my dad, because I don’t think they are vigilant enough in washing their hands after handling raw meat!

I’m picky about the way my clothes fit too, especially jeans.
I will actually take a pair of flop flips, flats and tennis shoes (I don’t wear heels that much) and make sure that I can wear a pair with all three types of shoes and it looks good. Like the legs are bunching up, they are the right lenght, etc. Darling Husband laughs, but I went through a horrible stage as a teenager and I couldn’t find jeans and I had to wear guys jeans because (even 10 years ago) they didn’t make plus size clothing for woman under 30. Plus I’m short.
Anyway! Also picky about food but not nearly as bad as I used to be. More so lately because I got the stomach flu after eating broccoli, califlower and salmon. So even the thought of eating that stuff right now makes me want to hurl.

I’m picky about beer and coffee.
I have been known to drink the cheap kind, but I’m not happy about it at all.
