Friday Fun: Let's talk about our quirks!

Poorvi Jhawar Marketplace Partner Mar 19, 2020

First of all, @Monique vdB : Happy Birthday! Hope you have a fantastic year ahead :)

giphy   

We went slightly 'off-topic' :P 

I genuinely believe that everyone is 'weird' in their own beautiful way.

I am weird to some and normal to none ;) 

Here are some of my quirks:

- I cry when I'm nervous

- When I write something, I NEED it to be formatted and edited properly before I can move on to my next sentence - which is a big no-no for a content writer, you should never write and edit at the same time. (I just did it again)

- I snort when I laugh, then laugh harder

giphy

Now, tell me about your quirks! :D

P.S.: With all the seriousness around, I just think this could be a good laugh :)

Every time I leave my house, I have to go back and check that I locked the door and every time I leave my desk at work, I have to go back and check that I locked my screen. I can try to narrate to myself what I am doing in the hopes that I don't feel the compulsion to go back and check and I still have to go back and check.

@Dharma Ramos things we do for our peace of mind! I get you :)

Thanks for the birthday wishes @Poorvi Jhawar!

I love this topic. One of my quirks is that if someone* opens my Entertainment Weekly magazine before I've read it, it's "ruined" and I can no longer truly enjoy reading it. 

*My husband, who somehow respects this even though it makes no sense.

Hahahah, thats so funny! 

So you need to take the plastic off yourself? How do you find out if someone has read it or not?

@Poorvi Jhawar there's no plastic involved! If I see him looking at it or I know he looked at it, that's enough for me!

Happy birthday @Monique vdB

I can't have anyone else (at all) make a sandwich for me - ever! My husband and I have been together since 2011 and he's never made me a sandwich! Even when I'm ill, he'll bring everything in on a tray so that I can make it myself! No idea why, just can't happen!

Hahahaha, I have to admit, I'm somewhat like that. It's not a compulsion, but definitely would prefer it. :P 

I see that

.  I am happy to eat in most restaraunts - they're paid to cook well.  I am happy to eat food cooked by myself, Chrissy, Chrissy's mother or my mother, without question - it's going to be good (unless I have a bad day and only deliver "ok")

Anyone else in my extended family is a big "nope" (although there's a question over my brother-in-law because he feeds us a lot of some absoluletly superb wines before we eat what he has cooked)

I can't stand for a second any crumbs/spots/hair or another random item on my clothes. But the interesting part is -  if I'm talking to someone and notice even one tiny little cat hair on its clothes, it's over.

All my attention is focused there, and we and up in "Sorry, but I have to remove this from you to keep this conversation going." I guess it's a bit annoying to people who don't know me.  :D

@Teodora _Old Street Solutions_ No crumbs/hair/spots talking to you then :P 

This must be a toughie when talking to someone for the first time. But it's so much better to just say it, than not pay attention to what they have to say. At least in my opinion :P

Yes yes :)

At the end is always funny, which make things just about right 😌

LOL! @Teodora _Old Street Solutions_ you and I are going to have so much trouble if we meet in person.  Two dogs made me give up on trying to get every last hair off my clothing ages ago.

So you can imagine how THIS character of my personality fits with a cat (when I had one) and the love of wearing black :D 

I can switch to Hair Remover-er as a professional career path.

Same as Dharma mentioned above me, when I lock the car, I have to go back and check if it is really locked - same with my apartment. If I don't do that, I am really nervous for couple of minutes, then I forget about it haha.

@Adam Rypel _MoroSystems_ 

Hahahah, me too. I worry about for sometime, then on to my next distraction :P

I meant to post on this thread on Friday :( 

I am the product of a right-handed father and a left-handed mother. 

There are some things I can only do right handed such as writing or drawing (and even drawing in general I don't do very well). 

There are some things I can only do left-handed like any stick sports (swinging a bat/golf club/hockey stick). 

And, there are some things I'm ambidextrous at such as eating with cutlery, I can switch between either hand, which is really helpful at family functions where most of my family is right-handed and most of my wife's family is left-handed.

@Jimmy Seddon So is my brother, and I have seen the benefits. Hahahah! Unfortunately, I can't do anything with my left hand -_-

This is a good one @Poorvi Jhawar 

Although i got few of them, let me stick to food.

When eating any dish i first start with the part of the dish which least interests me and save the delicious part for the last.

For eg: while eating a pizza, i first eat away the outer crust , then focus my attention on the cheesy part :)

Hahaha, I do that with a sandwich, I eat off the crust and then the middle at the last :P

Sometimes I extremely irritated with 'pickers'  (I mean my wife and cat) in the kitchen when I am cooking a meal. 

But mostly I do cooking in workshops :)
