Default Anal vs. Organized

I think I'm organized, my Bride says I'm anal.


Just emptied out my "subscriptions" (+600) on ToTV. Now zero. I say organized.

I empty out my Trash Folder every day. I say organized.

I like all light switches down when off. I say organized.



Now where are my car keys???????????

Maybe a little OCD mixed in?
Or as someone here has it on their signature line, "CDO, it's like OCD but in alphabetical order, as it should be.".

How about this one. The screws that hold the plates on light switched and plugs must not only be put up perfectly straight but the screws that hold them on must be Easy to West. Not North to South or just Cattywompus.

I threw away or shredded 38 years of every bill I ever received in perfect order before we move here. Now all bills come by email.

I clean the emails out every morning before I get my NOTHING on. Dew, I understand. It's organized.

I only wish my husband was so an-uh-organized! I've been battling piles of paper around the house for years.

Part II:

Dear Nucky,

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I spoke too soon.

I just found out that if Mr. Boomer installs the switch plates, the screws must line up north and south. But he does not change the old ones -- yet.

Also, I just learned that a friend of mine has to have all of the screws in her house lining up east and west. She has broken switch plates, trying to get them just right. She said so far she does this only at her own house.

Now, I know I will never again look at switch plate screws in quite the same way. - - - - - Same way? ------- Actually, I had never looked at them before -- now.

Isn't it wonderful how TOTV helps us to learn to see things differently.

I do like mine to go east west but I have to tell you about a woman I knew. She used to remove the switch plates when she vacuumed so she could vac behind them. I kid you not.

Be very careful when you install those switch plate screws, because, if you chip the paint on them, you will need to buy more screws. Also, if you tighten them too much, you will put a dimple on the plate and will need to buy new plates.

I think a lot of people who are anal know who they are, and they are secretly proud of it.

1. To the original poster. I bet three way switches drive you nuts?!
2. Screws on the wall plates east and west? Everyone knows they MUST be north and south!

How about the labels on Scott's Toilet Tissue? From about the age of 15 to 20 I worked in the supermarket stocking shelves. You could pick my aisle out for sure. Every label was facing forward. It was a work of art. The real problem was when I got the Soup or the Pet Food aisle. Oh my word. I would put the extra time in myself to straighten it out before I went home.

North and South, Come on Mrs. Boomeroonie, I'll be over later to fix them for you. I'm dying laughing, there are other nuts out there just like me. I love it.

Mrs. FW'S friend takes the cake. Vacuum behind the plates? Oh Boy? I'm good with leaving them however they are unless I just painted the room and changed the plates. I just looked and the ones in this house are all messed up. Gonna be a late night. Mamma Mia!

Feng Shui is ruined if they are not perfecto. Merry Christmas to You All. Pssst N & S is cuckoooooooo! LOL
