Do you have any strange habits?

I check that the kitchen electrical outlets are switched off before I leave the house.

  • That's not odd, it's saving energy and making sure you don't have an electrical fire while you're out.

    Odd is chanting: purse phone keys, purse phone keys, while you're getting ready to go out image

  • I suck my thumb when I'm tired. I was trying to get my daughter to stop because her orthodontist said it was absolutely the worst thing you could do in the world (after rape and murder) and she told him blatantly that she'd stop the day after I do. image

    I've got really good teeth. I'm an expert at not pushing on them. I'm allowed.image

  • I do that. "Keys, phone, wallet, pass..."
  • I tend to say 'Thank you' to the cash machine.

  • Kwilter, Don - me too. 
  • I also talk to myself in the car. That's allowed when I'm on my own because I can pretend I've got a bluetooth earpiece on. But when the kids are there and I forget I'm not alone they realise I'm mental.....image

    i do that too image

    oh, and i have to put my right shoe on before my left shoe.  can be a bit embarrassing in shoe shops sometimes if they hand me the left shoe first image

  • Anyone one else do the pretending you're being filmed for a cookery programme while you're making tea?

    Wow that really is odd image

  • I can never finish what I've.........
  • I sucked my thumb until I was about 14 years old, and there's nothing wrong with my teeth.

    I only stopped (despite my mother's nagging, foul tasting liquids painted on, etc., etc.,) when I wanted to grow my nails.

    Current odd habits?  None that I'm telling you lot about!  image

  • I talk to the television .         image
  • i have to check that the freezer door is closed each night before bed. someone left it open once and i think that throwing out all that food and cleaning up the flood of water left me slightly traumatised.

    oh and i also check that the gas hob is off.(someone left that on once too)

    and i talk to myself in the car - often to describe my next manoeuvre.

    i consider myself borderline v mild ocd. tell me others check appliances too................... please

  • I do the right shoe first thing [and sock].
    I talk to cash machines and the satnav [we argue actually].
    I'm not often filmed for a cookery programme, but every teensy wobble I go out on I'm being filmed running solo from Land's End to John o' Groats and I give the film crew a commentary on the countryside around us. They don't seem bored with my 4 mile loop yet!
    Toast should be cut diagonally.
    Can't drink coffee from a china mug, but it's essential for tea.
    I don't and never have sucked my thumb!
  • I like to dress up as a nun.
  • That's far more normal (dressing as a nun) than flying around in the air with your tail spinning, though, eh?  image
  • Strange habit ... geddit?

    Oh please yourself missus ...image

    LOL!

    I have to check the hot tap is properly turned off before I leave the bathroom, even if I know I've already turned it as tight closed as it'll go (I did leave it running all night once).

    I also have a tendency to swear at inanimate objects (computer, oven etc) if I make a mistake whilst using them...

    When I chop vegetables I click my teeth in time to each chopping motion.

    I also check every electrical appliance is switched off.  And it's the absolute kiss of death if I know I've switched something off and then my husband asks me if it's turned off.  I have to get up and check even if I remember already performing the switching-off procedure.

    Same goes for packing stuff for a holiday etc - if someone asks me whether I've packed something, I have to unpack everything to make sure whatever it is was included in the packing.image

    Definitely borderline OCD. image

  • I do the patting thing every morning, that is, season ticket wallet key phone all in diferent pockets. make it look like some kinda baverian dance.image
  • right sock always has to go on first and with running socks which are marked L & R I can almost guarantee that the 1st one I pick up is left which pisses me off no end..........
  • OCD ALERT!
  • I reckon most people do the right sock/shoe first but does this depend on whether you are right or left handed.

    The other thing I do which maybe a bit strange is that I alway try and sit on the train so I am going backwards it just feel better for some reason.  

  • I talk to my dog and ask her questions!  (She's great company!! but hasn't answered in words yet!)

    I sing to the tunes on my ipod when I'm out walking/running.

    We travel alot and even though I always keep all our passports in my handbag I take them out to check to see if they're there every single time.

    Even though I have email confirmation of the hotels we're staying in I still phone them on the day to see if we're booked in.

  • I talk to people on the internet image
  • ... They're only answer if you type something, Beebs... just a tip (unless you're on Skype)
  • well it works because you talked to me image
