    It really bugs me when the posters and pictures on my wall aren't perfectly straight. I'll spend forever getting them to sit straight on the wall. :XD

    What are some small things that just annoy you?

    Sounds of people chewing and eating make me go crazy. Chips are my worst nightmare.
    Also when a certain guy in my class never shuts the sound on his cell phone of and it goes off in the middle of class. I'm easily annoyed by such stuff. He doesn't care when we tell him to turn it off either!

    A bunch of people talking at one time. Him (for he is definitely odd, and small, come to think of it).

    The sound of bugs flying into a wall. :XD

    It bothers me how wishy-washy I am about him. Gah. :file:

    Whenever I see a crumb or something out of place, it bothers me until I fix it.

    It bothers me whenever I step on a crack on the sidewalk. If I do, I have to go back passed the crack and walk over it again, so I don't walk over it and it cancels out the time when I did.

    Whenever someone leaves a book laying open. That makes me crazy.
    Also when someone picks up after me, I can't stand it if I can't find whatever I left in the same place I left it at.
    My brother's voice. For some reason I would love it if I could tape his mouth shut.

    When a chair is left out, not pushed in.
    I get really angry about it, too.
    It's horrible. :XD

    I hate it when my dad puts the tv on mute when I'm on the computer. I don't know why but it really, really bothers me. When people chew really loud I find it really annoying too.

    I'm not the most..neat person in the world. In fact..my room(s), locker, binder..many things..they're all heinous neat-wise. I'm also extremely unorganized. But if I see something that looks wrong. Such as trays, and their set-ups with food. Oh my god, paintings on walls...I'm terrible...why do people never put them on perfectly straight, not even the large (almost ceiling-to-floor) one! And..if I get bored in restaurants..or even at home..I'll mess with the salt and pepper shakers, the silverware, appetizer plates, I'll set the napkins up, I'll mess with the sugar areas and the center piece. I'll make ordinary thing into set-ups and lay them out if I'm bored.The tray thing drives some of my friends crazy. But, god..things that don't look visually appealing bug me!

    Another thing that bugs me..is when I have to watch people type the wrong things in groups..or do something wrong and I'm in a group with them. Say someone can't get the tape ripped and I offer to help them but they deny my assistance..I get so bugged. When I have to watch people type things..such as for an English project..and it's terrible...they won't listen to my ideas and they're...almost illiterate. One of the worst happenings such as this I've had to come by lately is during a Drama project. My partner and I were to type up, block, create characters for, design set for and..everything for..a small scene. We were plotting out the stage..god..first off, his lines were terrible. We were doing grids, y'know by stage left, stage right, up stage, down stage, etc...something I know..completely. First, he wouldn't trust me that there are 9 squares so he needed 3 columns...not 2 (he's also in the not-so-smart math, can't act for the life of him..and..gets terrible grades in everything). Then..he wouldn't believe me about the names and where..this is all in pen, mind you. He wouldn't listen to me about where things are supposed to go..and he scratched things out..and his sizing and spacing was completely off. He didn't even do it in correct format! I offered to create a new one really quickly (it had taken us forever to finish that one) but he refused. He even turned that one into the teacher to check over. I have control issues, I think. I was fuming by the end of that class...

    Some things that bug me are:
    -When my room isn't exactly how I left it. Sometimes I'll find things on the floor that my cats or brother knocked down. I literally get so angry.

    -When doors are open. I like all the doors shut for some reason. If they're even a open by just a crack, I'll get furious.

    -When people make jokes about me. Even though it is not to be taken seriously and I know they're just playing around, I still despise it.

    -Going shopping for clothes. I want to just sob everytime becuase nothing in the store will appeal to me or will fit me. It's like they only make clothes nowadays for -2 sizes. It's depressing.

    -When I get sad. I hate it when I'm in a sad or bad mood because my emotions show on my face. Then other people think that something is wrong then that gets me more sad because they're getting worried about me

    When I watch a movie and there's an actor I recognize, I have to know where from or else I drive my mind insane.

    When we're eating in the dinner table together, my brother's really messy and he gets food everywhere and he makes all the placemats so askew. It really, really bothers me. I don't think it's an OCD thing, it just irks me to no end.

    When people chew loudly with their mouths open and you could see all the mushed up, half-digested food partnered with really gross, gooey sounds. That annoys me so much it isn't even funny.

    When someone has to be always right. That bugs me.
    Or when I see a speck of something on my food, I won't eat it.

    And ever since my friend spit in my drink freshman year, I won't drink something that's been left unattended if others are in the room. Doesn't matter if I trust them or not. No more foreign spit for me. D:

    There are certain words that just... I hear them and I don't care who says them, they're going down. :XD
    Like, tummy or belly or nipple or chica.
    There's a lot more but y'know. :tehe:
    I also cannot stand when people exchange knowing looks with each other and I don't know why. :XD

    When someone's typing things into a computer and I can see spelling errors and such. It drives me insane. Any spelling mistake just makes me brain go crazy. I hate it. When the movie The Road To Happyness was out, :cheese: it was horrible. Although, a good movie.

    When I'm talking to two people on MSN, and while I'm replying to one, the other pops in with "Hello, are you there?" My friend Maddy has this irritating habit of doing it, and then when I reply to her, the conversation is so dull, I wish I hadn't. :XD

    I hate it when my brother is playing video games of any kind, because when he does, he does something that pisses me off. He swings on the chair, or leans off it to the point where it's close to toppling over. If he gets frustrated, he'll yell; or if he's playing the playstation, he'll bite the controller. He'll sing or dance or whatever, and it just... argh. And it's terrible when he takes a break, because he jumps around the house like a fucking bouncy ball on crack.

    And I hate it when I move a poster and there's a blank spot on my wall where it used to be. I can't sleep with blank walls unless I'm sleeping in my living room or my grandmother's living room.

    When the blinds are turned downward as opposed to upward. A couple years ago in my English class the teacher always had them facing downward and in the middle of the lesson I'd stand up and fix it. He thought I was crazy at first, but after a while I kept on doing it so from then on he had kept blinds upward.

    Also when teachers don't erase the board enough and they leave little marks everywhere. :cheese:

    Same here! I just sit there trying to ignore it, but it bugs me so much!

    I can't stand the sound of flies flying around. That annoys the living hell out of me.

    When things fall - I go in a rage. I swear my stuff has conspired to fall all at once whenever I breathe in its direction. I. Hate. It.

    And when I'm doing the dishes, and I'm listening to my iPod and I go to the table to take dishes off it, and the headphone chord gets caught on the chair and the headphones rip out of my ears and out of the iPod. It happens every damn time and I always go into this mad fury and then Mum tells me off. It happened twice in a row once... You should have seen that...
