Hey weirdo, what strange habits do you have?

Ok, I'll start. I have a few OCD quirks.

- When driving down the expressway and changing lanes, my blinker must always blink the same number of times. Not only that, but the last blink is only a half blink. Usually it's 4 and a half blinks, sometimes it's 3 and a half depending on my mood.

- When I turn into my subdivision, there are black tar marks that they used to fill in cracks. I must straddle them and make sure I don't run over them.

- When on a rural road and coming up to a stop light, I'll time myself so that if the light is red, I won't have to touch the brakes. I judge it by how long the light has been red and if there is another car triggering the light or not. Then, when I see the cross traffic light turn yellow, I start speeding up assuming the light will turn green for me (leaving enough room to stop in case it doesn't). Probably not the safest practice in the world.


It seems everybody has those little things. What makes you weird?

Re: Hey weirdo, what strange driving habits do you have?

when i take a leak standing up, i always flush while going, then try to beat the toilet. the closer i get to finishing before the toilet does, the more satisfaction i derive.

when i get up in the morning, i HAVE to start the shower before i brush my teeth. dont ask me why i just have to. its like i cant brush in silence or something idk. sometimes i try to wait till after i brush, but i always stop in the middle of brushing to turn the shower on... man i'm fuckd up.

Heh, I do that too. Especially when I've been drinking.

While the thread was originally weird driving habits, I'll change the title to include just being plain weird. :P

Re: Hey weirdo, what strange habits do you have?

Ya'll are wierdos and I am normal.

j/k

I do the same thing about traffic lights...though I don't speed up when I see an opposing yellow, I'll just keep my speed constant until it changes...unless I am really close to the light. If it is one of those where I am really close even if I think it will change I will allow myself enough distance and keep slowing down enough that I can slam on the brakes to stop if my light doesn't turn green.

[/quote]Yeah same here, except I cannot let it do the half blink, I feel bad for the bulb. I feel as though I'm cutting it short of what it deserves, and is fully intended to do.


I force myself to wait until the car gets down to 1K RPMs before moving it.

When eating a small bag of chips, I try to leave at least 1 large chip while I eat the crumbs, so that my last one is satisfying.

I feel bad for click pens when I leave them clicked out, exposing the ink tip to the world. I must click it back in every time before setting it down, even if I know it's going to be for 30 seconds.

I do the same with pens...but my reasoning is self preservation. I have a tendancy to play with my pens and I have drawn on myself to many times because I forgot to click the tip back in.

Re: Hey weirdo, what strange habits do you have?

When I am in the car, the radio volume is always on an even number. If someone changes the volume to an odd number, I just change it one number up or down so it's even. Same thing with the tv if there is a number associated with the volume. If I don't have the remote it's no big deal.

I don't get anxious if it isn't even, it's just something I always do, kinda wierd.
