Annoying Me

Top things I do that annoy even myself:

1. I never put the new roll of toilet paper on the roller. I just let it sit there and unroll it by hand until about half the roll is gone and then I put it on. WHY DO I DO THIS?

2. I put my car keys in my left pocket. I fill my right hand with things. I'm a rightie. Then I go to my car and I have to get my keys out with my left hand, transfer everything to my left hand while fumbling to get the keys in my right and then I can get in the car. WHY DO I DO THIS?

3. I take my clothes off and throw them on the floor right next to the hamper. WHY DO I DO THIS?

4. Speaking of clothes, I never put my clean clothes away. Michaels stacks them neatly on my bureau, and then eventually the tower collapses and there are clothes everywhere and I have no choice BUT to put them away. Only to discover that my drawers are full of clothes I can't remember wearing. WHY DO I DO THIS?

5. I never, ever delete the pictures off my digital camera card, so when I want to go and show someone something, I have to scan through hundreds of pictures before I find the right ones. WHY DO I DO THIS?

I'm sure there are many more pet peeves I have about myself, but now I've gotten these out, hopefully I'll start to do something about it. Yeah right.

5 pearl(s) of wisdom:

Question for you: when you DO put the toilet paper (or, as Seraphim calls it, "strikin' paper") on the roll, which way do you do it? Are you an "Over" person or an "Under"?

You know, I don't pay attention. However it goes on, it goes on. I suspect I'm mostly an "over", but once in a while, I'm an under. It doesn't really matter to me :)

Ohhhh, it matters to me big time. "Under" just drives me bazonkers.

TP - Susan, I'm the same as you - I NEVER put the TP on the roll - it just sits on the vanity and I wind off what I need. It seems that I'm constantly getting out a new roll so it's easier this way (maybe I need to buy bigger rolls!)

As for Talmadge - the TP MUST go OVER - if it goes under it just doesn't work right. Long live the OVER!

Laundry - I'm the exact same way. I wash the clothes but rarely do the clothes make it back upstairs - which means that I have to run down to the basement to dress in the AM! If the clean clothes do make it upstairs they rarely make it out the basket, or even folded - just a giant heap of clothes. This creates a lovely memory test when it comes time to do laundry again - is it clean just no put away, or dirty???
