Yeah, mine too.  But I'm only partly OCD. Some of the "wrong" patterns struck me as kind of. . . artistic.  But I have to stifle the urge to correct all the misused apostrophes on signs!

I make really OCD people crazy. . . being left-handed, I make my checkmarks backwards :D

My wife looooves to read, so her nightstand usually has 3 or 4 books along with her Kindle Fire stacked on it.  Unfortunately, the first photo is usually how it looks.  I can't walk by it without stacking them the right way.  The larger books must be on the bottom and progressively get smaller as they are stacked and the spines must be even.


Whew!  Now, I can sleep tonight.



This will also start divorce proceedings.....

Number three was the only one what really made me cringe.  Some of the others are simply minor things that I might notice, but not get all twitchy about.

Now, leave a cabinet door or closet door open and that will make me twitch.  Oh, and I have been told that my towels and wash cloths are folded exceedingly neat.   Who knew, they look normal to me.   :p

Was there something wrong in those photos? ???

Actually, they didn't bother me at all. I got a good chuckle, in fact. I do like neatness, but I've been around too many people who don't pay much attention. Unlike their deeds, I saw method to the madness in those photos. Thought it was funny. :D

Based on that that "test" I'm not OCD... but then I like abstract paintings and to me the photos are more abstractions than test material... now I'm really worried :)

I'm somewhat ADD, my wife is somewhat OCD.  It sounds like a terrible combination, but I'm told that it often works out great.  The ADD person just leaves stuff around and the OCD person picks it up.

On the other hand, sometimes it can backfire.  A few days ago I was looking for my checkbook.  It wasn't where I normally keep it.  I checked in a bunch of rooms, the car, the truck... couldn't find it.  Finally I asked my wife if she had seen it.  Her response?  "You're always looking for it, so I moved it."

Number 8 was put up incorrectly at our subway too, and everytime we went there I ended up glaring at the tile that was out of place. Here non of the others were bugging me, but seeing that one actually changed my breathing rate. My husband is totally uptight about smoothing out how the seatbelt goes, belts or brastraps too, his or mine or the kids. But OCD for both of us seems limited to one specific thing on that whole list. So that is probably a no.
