Default OCD Thread

Basically things that you HAVE to do in your car/truck

when i roll my windows down partially they have to be even

My car has to be free of any and all trash always, sometimes i stop just to throw something away rather than just wait to get home.

No dust allowed whatsoever



I'll add more later if I remember more

also i find that i dont like to leave my wipers on if there not needed..its just always been something ive done..

the other thing i always do is turn the signal off manually even if it clicks itself off

but these can be considered habbits more than OCD tendencies

No garbage/eating unless on highway. Then it'* thrown out at next stop. My son gets a pass on eating as well.
Windows have to be even.
No smoking in my car.
I have to have Domo in my car.


Yea I know, it'* not the Bonne but I have to have that little guy in my car.

-My armrest in the back seat has to be up, unless it HAS to be used
-The temperature has to be set the same for the driver and passenger sides
-I often eat in my car, but I always clean up any mess as soon as I get home, but I hate dust. I usually clean out my car once a week.
-I can't stand when a passenger has to pick at everything..play with the window, turn the lights on and off in the back, play with the handle..especially when they touch the radio or climate controls.
-When I clean the inside, I'll wipe everything down with a cloth, then with armour all, and if there'* any smudges, go over it with a new cloth. Also, I clean anything I can reach. One day, I even took the plastic covers on the end of the seat rails off so I could clean them, and the dirt under them.
-My glass can't have any smudges inside, or outside..which is hard with my windshield for some reason. I usually clean that every 3 or 4 days.

Wow, I'm a little more OCD than I thought.. but its worth it, people always compliment how clean my car is

No one else is allowed in my car. That takes car of everything pretty much. I'm the only one who can throw garbage in my car.
