So.. everyone has a weird habit, quirk or phobia. Mine is this: I have an enormously hard time using a public restroom! I work in a large office building, and the Ladies restroom has about 7 stalls lined up. If someone is in there using the bathroom I CAN NOT GO unless there is A) running water i.e. flushing toilet sound B) they’re finishing up i.e. drying their hands, leaving or C) there’s a group of them making a lot of noise.
I have literally gone into the bathroom before, seen a stall occupied and turned around and walked out because I just can’t go! Even at my own house I run water when I have to go pee! My Fiance thinks it is insanely weird… which, granted… it is!
What is YOUR weird quirk?

mine is to do with peeing too – i always have to pee at least twice before i go to bed. so i’ll get ready for bed, pee, wash my hands, and then straight away sit back down and pee again and wash my hands again! and sometimes have to do it a third time!! but only right before I go to sleep, never any other time. sometimes i try to not do the second one but then I get in bed and just think about how i need to go so i always end up getting up and going again.
my goodness, we’re weird!

That is a very common problem called paruresis.

I talk to myself! 🙂 Everywhere. At home, grocery store, school. I’ve had people look at me like WTF? If I’m at home I’m like “okay, I did X now I have to go do Y and later I have to do Z.” FI thinks it’s funny but people at the store next to me when I’m like “mmm that would be good, then I could add X…” seem to think it’s wierd.

Mine is a bit weird … when people are over and I am making coffee in the morning and they ask for half a sugar or one sugar I think they cant possibly only want ONE sugar (I drink double double) so I always give them a bit extra
Then people always say how great the coffee is and I secretly think it is only because they have been depriving themselves of the sugar
I am a weird-o with control issues , obviously.

@MrsStrawberry24: I’m the same way with the fan! I can’t sleep without it!
I tap my nose when I’m thinking. Darling Husband also says I flail a limb for counterbalance when I’m trying to get up, I totally agree, I need momentum sometimes, lol! I also make these little high pitched sort of hiccup noises sometimes. I don’t think they’re exactly hiccups, they just happen once or twice, but they’re really funny. I provide Darling Husband with endless laughter with my quirks 😉

@MrsCoachBtoBee: I talk to myself ALL the time, and especially at work. I don’t even pay attention to see if anyone’s looking at me, ’cause I don’t care, lol.

I can’t use aluminum foil. Just the thought of it makes me hurt….

@Mrs_Amanda: haha, I’m sooo the opposite. I actually get a kick out of going into a public bathroom and how like 4/5 times girls peeing/pooing will STOP because I walked in and WAIT till they think I’ve left to finish.

@CanadianMermaid: LMAO I love this. I always get excited when new baristas are working at Starbucks because they usually tend to overpump the flavored syrups…love me some sugary goodness!
I talk to inanimate objects. A lot. I have entire one-sided conversations with my computer, and I make jewelry so I’m often coaxing things into place vocally as well as with my pliers. I talk to my plants, my knitting (helps me keep track of my stitches), my sewing machine, the tv remote, insects that get into our apartment…basically I’m a crazy cat lady without the cats.

I put sugar on pretty much everything. Especially ketchup. My Fiance hates asking for sugar packets whenever we go through the drive thru 🙂
