    My CDs are alphabetized...
    I count crap incessantly (28 steps between floors at work!)
    I set the volume on my TV or radio only to even numbers... :spy:

    But touch up paint for a washing machine? Sheesh... :laughing:

    If the light shade on the overhead light is askew I can't handle it. Can't sleep, can't do anything else until I fix it.

    modded the F*ck out
    all the money in my wallet has to face the same direction and be in numerical order by serial number and denomination, all change must be sorted and facing the same way.
    I don't wash socks I just buy new ones every week, if I mistype a word I will erase and entire sentence and retype it. All my clothes must be color coordinated from lightest to darkest and folded to be the same size. All my electronics must be the same brand.

    Did I mention I have OCD?

    Not real sure about the Wiki take of this thread topic, maybe one of the OCD on here will edit it (maybe more than once)...

    The only thing I'm OCD about is NOT being OCD & I highly recommend others do the same...break the habit.

    I am 100% different now then I used to be. I used to be such a clean / organization / perfection freak, I'm embarrassed to list all my former habits (really). Now when shit gets fucked up I don't even notice it (you real OCDers know exactly what I'm talking about).

    I think you have more than OCD, you have a problem!

    Just kidding. I am not OCD but I like for things to be in place and clean/neat. My money face the same direction, but not in numerical order by serial number. I guess I am balanced OCD.:)

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    The only weird thing here to me is the serial #'s on the money and the socks, everything else is pretty spot on to how I am. I hate misfaced money, and my wife actually got me a nice sound bar for the TV for Christmas, but I returned it and got a same price, but worse sound quality for the same brand as TV and everything else.

    That being said, I don't go Monk crazy when things are not this way, but they do bother me. Every now in then it pisses me off when listening to the sound bar, but I know I would have been much more bothered staring at a Sony TV with a Samsung sound bar everyday.

    Oh, and I don't do the mistype thing.

    LOL, I do a lot of the same things that have been listed. Another funny one is that in my house, all of the flat-head screws that hold on cover plates for switches and outlets have to be oriented so that the slot in the screw is perfectly up and down. I actually saw an electrician do it a few years back and ever since, I'm crazy about it. Looks good too.

    I consider myself to be CDO. It is the same as OCD, but the letters are alphabetized as they should be.
