Share one of your "quirks"

Thought it might be fun to see what others idiosyncrasies are. While I have many the one that comes to mind is:

When a pair of shoes is on the floor, the left show must be on the left and the right on the right. My daughter figured that out once, and had a little fun with me for a while

It's all good though...

i've got some:

any time i have cash or am given change, all of the bills must be facing the same direction with the smallest bills on the outside and largest on the inside. furthermore the bills (all facing the same direction) must face in a particular direction: presidents faces must be up and the tops of their heads must be facing toward my left hand.

i have to wipe off the screen on my cell phone after i hang up (i hate face smudgies)

i'm sure there are more but those are the ones that come to mind first.

Yeah, I do the bills thing. All must be faced and straight in my wallet. My wife makes fun of me when we go out to eat, the silverware and napkins must be straight and the condiments on the table get aligned!

I used to pump gas part time, so the bill the bill thing is my quirk. All the bills have to be facing the same way.

you're the first person i've talked to that does that like me. everyone else i've ever asked, if they miss the mark like 5:31, the go around again, or go to 5:35.

I have never in my life had to use an alarm clock. When I go to bed, I look at the clock and note when I have to get up. I always wake up ten minutes before I need to be out of bed.

Weird. Your internal clock must be awesome.

Even if the power goes out or on weekends I still get up at 4:11.
My dog always comes in the bedroom to see me because she thinks I have to pet her at that time every day. So on weekends she gets her usual pat on the head and then I tell her to go to bed and we can sleep for another 2 hours.

The only one I am really aware of is when eating I start with Potatoes, then the veggies then the meat, but I do everything right handed except the meat I always eat the meat left handed.

Nothing real quirky though.

I like stuff to be symmetrical, everything has to balanced, even, level, and straight. I straighten out paperclips when I'm bored at a desk.

In my house, on light switch panels with more than one switch and more than one switch to turn that particular light or fan on, like 1 on the west wall and 1 on the south wall, the switches all have to be either up or down, not one up and one down....That's about the only quirk I got

As for light switch panels. Whenever I put them back on the screws have to be vertical.
