If I take off my socks I can NOT put them back on. I HAVE to get a new pair of socks. Once I take a sock off - I will not put it back on. It totally grosses me out to put dirty socks on - even if I just took them off 10 seconds ago. Weird. What's yours?
Link Posted: 4/30/2003 6:14:14 PM EDT
Same thing for me. Won't put the same ones back on. Say...how about this one. Whenever I see an old lady crossing the road in front of me, I have the overwhelming urge to gun it. Same thing for you? We might be related...

Damn! I just got to thinking about my smart ass answer, and it occurred to me that I really can outdo that one. My wife buys my tube socks two packages at a time. One package plain white, one package with a black W at the top, for Wilson, maybe? Anyway, this is because... I don't like putting a lefty sock on my right foot. So... I wear a W on my left and a plain on my right, always. She pairs my socks so that each pair is a W and a plain. I always put the left one on first. Is that being just a bit too anal??

I hate mayonnaise beyond all reasonable measure. I mean hate it. I'll throw away food that contains mayo, if I find it in there by surprise. I dont leave the drive-thru window until I can determine there's no goddamn mayo on my burger when I ordered "no mayo", and I'll demand a new burger if there is. I just hate the shit.

You guys are crazy worrying about socks like that!! However, I like to have the sew strip that on the top of the toes. If this doesn't match up 100% and my boots aren't 100% comfortable I will redo everything from the bare foot up! So yeah...I am a freak about my feet![%|][%|] Sgtar15 [white] For foot porn please go to www.PeggyHill.com[/white]

Sock donning procedure: 1. Find two socks of similar size and color. If none are in drawer, check floor. 2. If utilizing a sock from floor stocks, stand above the sock without bending over and smell the air. 3. If no odor is detected, pick up sock and check for dampness. 4. If sock is dry, don. After use return sock to floor stock until laundry day. Note: Similar procedures apply to undershirts. Underwear must past the more rigorous "lay on upturned face and inhale deeply" test.

you and me both buddy, maybe not 10 seconds to seperate, but i cant FN stand wearing dirty socks, rather go sockless however, while im sure i have numerous quirks, my wife standing here brings up one of mine she cant stand........i wear a cap until it dies, literally, i know when it dies because she tells me for a month prior that the son of a bitch stinks and if i dont get rid of it she'll get rid of me oh, and she also says im the worlds worst at yelling at other drivers, which i can believe, the bastards should learn how to drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't worn skivvies since August of 1984. I don't even own a pair. Some people say that is "quirky". I don't think so. Also, I can't stand the sound of cotton cloth being torn. It's like fingers on a chalk board (which incidently, doesn't bother me). Rip a terry cloth towel and it's like Kryptonite to Superman.

I don't know if this qualifies as a quirk or not but after I use my little clippers to clip my finger nails I can't stop there, I have to bevel them. Am I the only one who does this?

I double and sometimes triple check the locks on all the doors before going to bed. Other times I second guess myself on things and go back to make sure I did what I thought I did.

This is not a quirk, fellow Mayo haters, It's the nasty-filthy-disgusting Mayo lovers out there who are wrong- I HATE the stuff as well. It has no redeeming value. In Cali, they put it on everything. Perfectly good food Ruined. It makes me very paranoid. Even if you tell them 3 times to leave it off, there is still a good chance you will get it. F-ing nasty bastards. If I could go back in time I would murder the SOB who invented it. It's discrimination, and a hate crime. We need to form a support group. A regime change is needed in the condiment world. Down with Mayo!

I LIKE mayo. Let me guess...no matter how sick you get, you'd NEVER go to the MAYO CLINIC, would you? Didn't the Chinese have a leader named Chairman MAYO? I guess what happened is you saw that sick cartoon from Hustler magazine many years ago that had Humpty Dumpty standing in front of a wall with his fly unzipped, his dick in his hand, a nasty smile on his face, and a sign at his feet that said "Refill your mayonnaise jar, $1.00". My only quirk, if you can call it that, is that I absolutely can't stand going a day without a shower. Every day, I get one no matter what, even if I'm sick and should be in bed. (Extremely rare with me.) When I blew a kidney stone out my you-know-what and the pain was amazing for a full day, I still had to have my shower. With my body chemistry, I consider it to be absolutely necessary, especially for the hair, which gets oily in a day. CJ

Nope. No known Italian in my ancestry. All northern European types except for a trace of American Indian. Nobody else in my family has the same trait. If I go for a couple of days without washing my hair, I can give a car a complete lube job just by rubbing my head on the engine block! CJ

Fuck, you nailed me on every one of them. Especially the shower before bed, even if at 4am. Now I can sleep without a shower if I'm camping out or something. After hurricane Andrew I slept outdoors a few days with my clothes on and no shower. BUT, before I get in bed I have to take a shower. Just can't sleep otherwise.

AWESOME! I never realized there was such a MAYO hating contingent lurking around. My family and friends chastise me for my pure and utter hatred for mayo. If I smell the shit I feel like puking. Everyone knows if they are inviting me over for a meal they best not put none of that crap on, in or around my food. Some of my other quirks: I must "even out" my sidewalk crack stepping. Different sized cracks have different scores associated with them, and how much of my foot touches the crack alters the score. Stepping completely over a crack scores it fully. Must always be even, and if I no longer feel like playing the crack game I must take 3 steps without stepping on/over a crack while staying "STOP" in my head each step. I just realized how pathetic that is after typing it. I have to pop the joints on both sides of my body evenly or I freak out. I can pop 16 different things on my hands including my wrists, don't get me started on the rest of my body. I am paranoid that I have boogers... alot. I wash my hands... constantly. My car has memory mirrors/seats now. I had to have this feature because someone altering the mirrors, seat, or wheel tilt in my car would stress me out for weeks. I REFUSE to walk in my garage with bare feet. I can handle the grass, or textured concrete in very small amounts, but something about the smooth concrete in my garage makes me loopy. Ok, I'll stop now. Sigh... I feel like a freak now [:)]

I hate the sound of magic markers writing on cardboard, I hate mayo, & always have, I hate it when my hands get dry dirt, & oil on them, like when working on a car engine. I hate it when my wife leaves all the caps off on the bottles, & tubes of stuff in the bathroom. I hate it when she leaves not's in electrical cords. Do any of these things count? or is it all just stuff I hate?

I absolutely refuse to wear jeans. Can't stand jeans. Haven't worn a pair since the 2nd grade, i'm now done with my jr. year in college. My other main one is its almost tourture for me to wear socks without shoes. I never have liked socks anyway, but to wear them without shoes is not an option. The most awkward moments are when I go to someones house for the fist time, take off both shoes and socks upon entering. They usually think im strange for that, but then get over it. Do to this fact I wear addidas slip on sandles year round. I'm going to be screwed when I get out of college.

I rub my temples and pic at the ends of my eyebrows using a fingernail when stressed or in thought. I also cant stand the sound, thought, or sight of a fork being draggaed across one's teeth.

Pull/pick at beard/mustache while in deep thought Can't stand shirt tags flipped up. Have almost fixed tags on complete stranger's shirts because it bugs me so much. Socks absolutely have to be over the calf length gray sports tube-type. Crew length or shorter--I'll go without & don't even think about those nasty thin black dress socks . Socks & skivvies must have the elastic band straight...younger brother always half-assed had his twisted & wasn't bothered by having one sock pulled up & one sagging...drove me nuts wondering how he could stand it. Wallet in right hip pocket, watch on left wrist..no exceptions! Shirt must be tucked in & belt worn, even if only running to the convenience store. Oddball change (silver pre '64 quarters, Susan B dollars, Canadian pennies etc) in left front pocket with lighter. Have to fight the urge to front the canned goods at the grocery store. Burned out lights bug me. Seeing a burned out light while at Wal-Mart or other public place has me wanting to find the supply closet & a ladder to fix it. Clowns totally wig me out. Rodeo clowns are ok but Whizzo-type birthday/circus clowns make my skin crawl & have me looking for the exit. Mimes also. More of a phobia, actually.

Well, I guess it's a quirk, but for the last 20 years or so I dress only in black. Black jeans, black t-shirt, black vest. If it's too hot, black t-shirt, black shorts, black fanny pack. It's always just seemed practical to me, since I'm a little color blind and never have to worry about matching anything. Now if you were to ask my family and friends if I had any quirks they would probably just point to the fact that I refused to leave the house unarmed. [;)]
