    A couple weeks ago I grabbed a shoe and got the left instead of the right one because my dog has decided he likes to move my shoes. I normally put the right shoe on first but since I had the left in my hand I figured I'd put it on first. It was standing up as normal but found it somewhat difficult to do. Then I grabbed the right shoe and that also seemed more difficult than usual. Apparently the order I put my shoes on makes a difference.

    After that I started noticing other dressing habits. When putting pants on, I have to put the right leg in first if I'm standing or both legs at once if I'm sitting. Putting on a coat, the right arm has to go in first or I fumble around trying to find the sleeve. It seems strange that such little changes make a difference.

    You sound like one of those kids in elementary school who would pull his pants all the way down to pee.

    I still do that when I am standing, but I prefer sitting when I piss.

    When I'm in shower I start at the top and work my way down. Some of you freaks probably wash your ass first.

    I have OCD. So, yes. I have a pretty rigid structure to most of the shit I do. I'm completely aware of all the weird shit I do also.

    I use my hands like squeegee's to brush off water before I get out of the shower to use the towel. I don't remember when I started doing it but I always do it.

    Very fitting considering your name.

    I'm not really talking about compulsively having to do things a certain way but more of getting used to doing something a certain way for such a long time that it becomes harder to do it differently.

    I've noticed that I've gotten used to opening doors with my right hand no matter which way they swing.

    I use the rules of the road when walking keeping right when meeting someone and moving left when overtaking someone.

    Yeah I tried putting a dress shirt on with my left arm in first and it was like the first time I ever put a shirt on. Felt so foreign. I looked disabled in that moment.
