I haven’t been very bloggy lately (Is that even a word? It is now!), but I am back and ready to do this thing. So if you are a dedicated reader and have been with me for a while, you will know that I am OCD. Well, being OCD, I have A LOT of pet peeves. Like a lot of them. Some of which people think are ridiculous. So I thought it would be fun to list all the pet peeves of my OCD self.
I have all the normal pet peeves that everyone would have like:
- Not washing yours hands after using the restroom
- Sneezing without covering your mouth
- Chewing with your mouth open
- Stuff not being put back where it belongs
You know, stuff like that. But when you are OCD, literally everything is a pet peeve.
OCD Pet peeves:
- Using more than one cup a day
- When said cups are left everywhere
- When too much dish soap is used
- When people walk around the house without slippers on (We have tile)
- When both sides of the sink have dirty dishes (It should only be the right side)
- When there are crumbs left anywhere
- Sponges being used to clean the table when its suppose to be only for the dishes.
- More than one sponge is used on dishes at a time
- When someone other than me uses my body wash
- Pillow cases not being on right (Tag in the back of the pillow case and on straight)
- Clothes being under beds
- Toys in my living room
- Rug being crooked
- My closet not being organized by season and color
- Eating the last of the food in the house
- Not eating any of the food in the house
- Leaving toothpaste in the sink
- Things not being lined up
- CLUTTER. Any clutter anywhere
- Crumbs anywhere
- Books not being in order from biggest to smallest
- Toilet paper not being on the right way (Yes, there is a right way)
- Towels not being folded right
- My dish towels being used in other places than the kitchen
- Things being unsymmetrical
These things don’t just bug me… They make me sick. Literally, if something isn’t right, I can feel it in my stomach. It also makes me uncomfortable. If I can’t change something that’s not right, I hide or try to keep myself away from it.
See, pet peeves of someone who is OCD is a lot different than just normal pet peeves. It sucks, but it’s what I deal with daily.
