    OCD rules, they're important...

    The first rule of the OCD club is that there has to be a second rule so that there will be an even number of rules.

    I couldn't believe it - when I cashed my paycheck at work,
    they didn't put all of the bills in numerical order,or all facing the
    same way (AGAIN!).
    Some people just don't get it.

    When i get cash from the ATM the bills seem to be always facing the same way but quite often some of them are upside down.

    Howard Hughes of course suffered with OCD, and Comedian Howie Mandel is also afflicted (If you've ever watched him on AGT you may have noticed he prefers "fist bumps" to shaking hands). I've had several family members in my Family to Family classes over the years who had loved ones with OCD. In many cases it can be quite debilitating. >> OCD

    And the change in my pocket doesn't come out in high to low order with all the heads facing up, and in the same direction.

    It always annoys me when someone, especially a bank teller, doesn't front and face bills from smallest to largest.

    I guess they don't get paid enough to care!

    I have no idea why, but I was just thinking about Mr. Howell's comments on the Mosquitoes a couple of days ago.

    are in the "DOWN" position,when the lights are off.

    That's only reasonable Doug. My similar problem though is with two-way circuits. Which one has to be down?

    Switch plate and outlet plate screws are all in with the slot-heads horizontal. Bills arranged in the wallet, singles first, all portraits face forward and right side up. Yup, I get it.

    Keys... ONE key fits every door lock at the hovel (five of them). One key for seven tool box locks. One key fits the MG and both Lotus cars but can't do it with column-lock ignitions (and that bugs the Heck outta me!). Hate carrying a bunch of keys.

    Oh, and, toilet paper cascades over the top. hanging down in front. (Unless there are children less than 5 in the house because if they start spinning the roll with it hanging from the back it will roll tighter and not looser - most kids that age lack the coordination to swipe from bottom to top.)
