    I have to have the towels in the linen closet folded a certain way and stacked by size/type.
    I always need the towels in the bathroom haging neatly
    I always wipe down the sink counter because I don't like splashes of water on the edge of the sink.
    i hang my clothes according to type, and sometimes color (short sleeves together, long sleeves together).
    when I worked in an office and someone moved my stapler or tape dispenser, I would have to put it back where I had it. Everything has its specific place on the desk.

    Ok, one question, we are walking out of your office, and I move the stapler, could you then leave and go about the rest of your day and enjoy it without thinking about the stapler?

    No, I would fix it, but, if I locked the door, the it would be the first thing I fixed when I got back.

    What about 3-way light switches? If there are two switches in a room that control one light, both switches must down when the light is out. If both are up I have to change them both before leaving the room. I do this at work where some switches are 100' apart :facepalm:

    And we have 2 different color towels at my house. If they are not stacked alternately I go crazy. I am disturbed.

    Ok, cool, then you are perfectly normal. You see Oh So, we all have a bit of OCD in us, and for the most part it is fine, even a good thing. It gives us a sense of pride in taking care of things. I for one cannot go away on a trip unless the house is spotless for my return and all the bills are paid up for the month.
