50 MORE Weird Confessions

Weird confessions

We’re all normal.

And when I say normal, I mean that we are all crazy, and strange, and weird. All that is normal. Believe me.

I myself have my oddities. I have weird things I do that nobody else knows about. And that got me to thinking. Would other people fess up and confess their own weirdnesses if I gave them an anonymous place to do it?

There was only one way to tell. So, I setup an anonymous form with only one question.

What is the weirdest thing you do that you never tell anyone else about?

Your answers have making me feel weirdly normal ever since. Hahaha. Enjoy.

01
I always have to tap my elbow on the table before I take a bite of food. If I don’t, I can’t put the food in my mouth. ~Anonymous
02
At work I sometimes go to the washroom to take a nap on the throne. ~Anonymous
03
All the doors on my house have to be locked before I can poop. ~Anonymous
04
I like to pretend that I have control over automatic doors in stores, and that it’s my power that’s opening them. ~Anonymous
05
When boarding an airplane, I fart while I’m walking through first class while I make my way to my coach seat. ~Anonymous
06
I absolutely cannot turn on my headlights if I think another driver can see me do it. I have to pull into a parking lot and stop to turn them on. ~Anonymous
07
Sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of a nice sleep to find that I have been holding one of my arms straight up in the air. ~Anonymous
08
I eat all the broken animal crackers first, including all the broken off pieces. Only after that can I enjoy eating the whole crackers. ~Anonymous
09
I only will use a bathtub if it is on the lowest floor. If it isn’t I’m afraid the floor won’t withstand the weight of the tub, water, and myself and I’ll fall through the floor. ~Anonymous
10
I narrate what I’m doing in my mind like a documentary…”she opened the fridge to get the milk”…”she fumbled with the keys as she opened the door” etc. ~Anonymous

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to have the tv or radio volume go up by 2's or multiples of 5 (and it drives me crazy that my new car doesn't enumerate the volume levels!!)

Really? That merely reminds the people in first class of a good reason for paying extra -- avoiding sitting by people who fart in public and still think it's funny. :)

I love the thumb-sucking couple! I had to quit sucking my thumb when I was 12, after my mom said "you can't get braces on your teeth if you're still sucking your thumb, or you'll undo what the braces will be trying to accomplish." (I hated having to quit because I loved sucking my thumb so much. I tried to start up again years later, but it didn't feel the same.)

I have PTSD with OCD tendencies. Many of these seem normal to me. It makes me feel a little better knowing I am not the only person to do stuff like this. lol

As amusing as many of these are, some of these are truly pathological. Don't be so quick to make light of such serious situations.

Normal is overrated... I like the eccentricities in my family!

Omg, the dog butt song. I died laughing because I sing to my dogs all the time and no doubt I've done it while scratching their butts! Lol

I specialize in treating people with OCD...one can be obsessive or compulsive without it being a disorder. If somebody really needs help though a good resource is ocfoundation.org & therapy (a specific type developed to treat OCD) has shown to be as effective as meds alone. I must admit, reading this list was a bit like being at work though. Fascinated by how the brain works!

I'm not the only one who MUST have volume levels on an even number or a 5? wild that someone else has the same random quirk...

farting in first class is just funny - and I approve of buying the lonely deli food

This is so funny. I was cracking up so much reading it that my husband was getting annoyed while watching TV. :) I have some OCD tendencies so I can identify with some of these. I won't feel so bad now while I am trying to center the remaining eggs in the carton, and things like that.

hahahaha hilarious....looks like im not the only weird one out there. I have to say out loud three times when I grab my keys and put them in my purse...I have my keys, my keys are in my purse, my keys my purse has. lol I only have one key...and cant afford to get a a locksmith if I lock them in.

I haven't smoked pot in over a year. Every time i get drunk i hide it somewhere else and once in a while i get the craving but cant find it. Then ill get drunk, find it, and not want it anymore

I strangely feel more than normal...

I can relate to so many of those! My weirdest thing is probably that when I finish a task I don't like or talk to someone who says something negative, I have to brush my hands & arms off like it brushes off the negativity of the situation. I've been doing it since high school.

I died laughing with the "dusting crops" and, with the "passing gas through first class." I have done it in church and in a grocery store. hahahaha

These are the same comments mostly OCD. Aren't there new ones?

I have to say, I love your opening about "normal" and completely agree with it. For years, whenever I hear people refer to a person as normal I ask what normal is.

Seriously, #49: just go to JoAnn's and buy dress shields!

Ok, can I just say that now I don't feel like such a freak of nature. While reading through these, I kept going (in my head), "Hey! I do that, too!" :) It's just nice to know that, secretly, I'm not alone in the secretly weird things I do. *pleasant sigh*

@Maria Bright Sadly, some of us have such LARGE boobs that it doesn't take much (or any in my case) to do it. When I was nursing I had to shower twice a day to keep that smell under control. And I don't know what she is talking about, it is definitely caused by sweat!

@Rachelle Berger Poteracki I center my eggs too!  I carefully pull from both sides and try to keep all the weight in the middle.  My reason is that I once had a weak carton fall apart and the eggs almost became scrambled on the floor.
