I’ve never really wrote about my OCD. Probably because it’s not a huge problem and it doesn’t really bother me or anybody around me. But I totally get laughing when I’m telling people about it. You see, I have this strange fear. This apprehensiveness and mistrust towards odd numbers as well as the number 10. 10 is my unlucky number. It always has been. So here’s the situation. My car radio’s volume is way too quiet on the number 8. Perfect on the number 10. Yet way too loud on the number 12. So I have to plug my iPhone in, turn it on 12, and then turn it down on my iPhone. Catching my drift? It’s super weird. Yet so funny. I hate the number 10. I cannot and will not have my volume set on number 10. As far as the number 1? You might not want to get me started. I won’t program radio stations on number 1, just because I think number 1 is sort of not fair. It’s a one-sided number. And I just don’t like it. Now what about billboards? If there’s something written on a sign or billboard that I didn’t get the chance to read ALL OF, I literally have to exit, get back on the freeway going the OTHER WAY. Exit. Get back on the freeway going the original way…just to read it. It’ll bother me the rest of the day if I didn’t get to read it. Even if the billboard is about nothing amusing to me in any way, I still gotta go back and read it.
I don’t think my silly OCD ways bother Trev too much. He just knows to put the volume on an even number besides 10 and he’ll be my best bud for the eternities.
Do you have any weird OCD habits?
