Something I obsess over - The Sequel

If the towels are not folded correctly, I will literally pull them out and redo them. I have issues.

I used to work at Wal-Mart when I was a teenager in the Domestic's dept. There was a certain way to fold the towels....and now, years later, I still have to fold them the way you do them. If one is out of place, I go mental.

Me too! I also worked at a linen store in my early 20's and I still fold them that way!! I have, however, learned (sort of) to let it go when other people in the household fold them since I figure at least they're helping :)

I think a little OCD is a sign of genius. Unfortunately, my laziness overrules any obsessive compulsions I once had. (Except for the dishes being cleaned and put away - I imagine a swarm of ants living inside the walls waiting to take over our house.

My friend's 18-month old son throws a fit if his mom doesn't clean his hands if he's got any iota of cookie crumbs on them.

He also had a fit in Home Depot when a DROP of milk fell on the floor. He wouldn't stop fussing until she went back and made a show of cleaning up the spot.

if I leave my towels in the dryer and my roomie needs to use it, she'll fold all my towels for me - I have repeatedly asked her not to do this b/c it makes me feel bad for leaving stuff. It doesn't happen often, but I've told her to just throw them in the laundry basket I leave on the dryer... but secretly, once she folds them, I refold them my way.

Oh my gosh, I didn't realize there were others out there with this affliction. I posted a pic of it on my blog a few months ago. But I can't blame mine on a former employer--my mom's the same way.

I totally do that! Hubster always folds wrong & I'll take the entire linen closet down & then refold!

My mama taught me how to fold towels the RIGHT way.

I have taught every man I have loved how to fold the towels.

If they can't get, well forget it!

I do that. I also have to re-wash and re-dry sheets if I find some that aren't folded correctly. And contrary to popular belief, you CAN fold a fitted sheet so it looks like a flat sheet. That drives me nucking futs.
