    Oh my god, I do this! Everyone has a nickname, my husband and I can have a whole convo just using random names we call people.

    I have a lot of weird things im sure. I can't peg things on the line by themselves. Like I cannot have the washing out but one pair of shorts on its own line, I worry that the item of clothing will get lonely?

    I lock all doors all the time. I regularly lock my husband out of the house by mistake when he goes outside, drives him nuts.

    I can't sleep with my feet uncovered in case something under the bed gets them.

    I eat food in even numbered mouthfuls. Eg 2 chips, 4 chips etc. Never 1 chip or 3 chips.
    And soooo many more im sure.

    I can't hang my feet off the side of the bed at night, think that stems from being a child and fearing something is underneath. I also can't look in the mirror at night with no light on. I think another childhood horror movie phobia.

    Default *Spin Off* What's the strangest thing/s YOU do?!

    Ha I love reading about people's quirks!!

    Mine is washing related. When I take it off the line the socks undies and bibs MUST be at the bottom. I have to carefully scan the line before I move on.

    After the socks and undies are done the kid's clothes come next. They must lay on top of the undies.

    On top of the basket are all mine and DH's clothes. I seriously get stressed if the washing is taken off any other way! I'm not sure why I do this but it sure does make folding easier (big clothes on the bottom and small stuff on top).

    I always giggle at a friend of mine whose pegs must be matching colours when she hangs out the washing. She thinks I'M the weird one lol!!!

    Yeah I have a few... the first that come to mind are kind of similar to what others have posted:
    Firstly this is DH's quirk which I have "caught" over the many years I've been forced to do it... the TV volume has to be on an even number... no 11's or 23's.. haha.. sometimes if we're arguing and sitting together watching TV, I'll turn the volume up or down and purposely leave it on an odd number just to irk him He see's it on the screen and squirms but I pretend it's innocent.

    I can't leave the microwave unless the screen has cleared. It can't be left with 2 seconds or whatever on display, it simply MUST be clear!

    Um... that's it really.. except the toilet paper thing, but I think that's a common quirk; it has to be over NOT under!

    I love these threads!

    I hoard batteries, especially AA & AAA. Just because they're too flat for a toy doesn't mean they won't give me a few more weeks in a remote or clock!

    I like to fold the end of the toilet paper into a triangle at other peoples places (like they do at hotels). I've been doing it for years now, and I'm still waiting for someone to notice.

    Must hang all clothes on line the right way out and with matching clothes pegs

    Must take off clothes from clothes line in order of bedrooms/drawers.

    Clothes in my half of wardrobe and in the girls cupboard are arranged first by item ie dress/shirts/skirts/pants etc then by colour (darkest to lightest).

    I fold undies/bras to put them in my drawers (used to put them according to colour after ironing but don't have the time for it anymore).

    Books are the shelves alphabetically by author then in order of height with the range by the author.

    Meat/poultry must sit on it's own shelf in fridge

    I rotate groceries - new stuff at the back of pantry and older good at front. I used to use post it notes on tins to indicate dates of purchase by DH thinks that's nutty.

    I put away stuff constantly and it gets on dh's nerves cos as he takes out stuff ie keys wallet - I see them on the bench and put it away.

    Lastly I pretend not to notice dh's side of the bed.
