    I count weird things - like when I'm walking a long way, I count every step i'm taking. And sometimes count the number of letters in words that people are saying and put them into groups of like 2 or 3, and get annoyed if one or two are left over at the end because it's not the right number of letters to be able to group them by that number...
    So this thread is turning into not what people do differently to others, just weird things that people do that no one else does! :lol:
    I do this...

    Whenever someone touches my hair, shoulders or something I always then feel like I have to do the same to see what they felt. I don't know why, but I try and wait until they're not looking!
    I never step on cracks in the pavement but then a lot of people are the same I think.
    Lots of strange number things like having the volume on a prime, square or triangle number or skipping steps to make sure the total isn't a multiple of 3. Don't ask why :P

    Well, as part of my OCD I don't touch door handles in public. I'll use my feet, elbows or at worst gloved hands to manouvere my way around!

    My flatmates well took the piss out of me when I ate beans "on" toast.

    For me, it's beans ASIDE toast, can't stand soggy toast. This is apparently weird.

      Its probably a regional thing. When i saw people saying it on here i thought it was really strange. Are you in south england? Maybe its a london/south thing to say 'asked' and all the northerners say 'arsed'. Doesnt even make sense, 'cant be asked' makes more sense to me
      i'm a northerner and everyone i know says arsed, so think you might be right about the regional thing!
      and it does make sense, it's like when people say get your arse in gear; meaning get motivated. i can't be arsed - i can't be bothered. most shoddy attempt at explaining my point ever

        I pronounce "room" as sort of like "rhum".
        I live in Yorkshire, so this gets me quite a lot of grief... what's that parable about removing the log from your own accent before you try to remove the splinter from your neighbour's, or something like that? :P

        This might sound a bit silly but.. my house is quite old and we don't have a single bathroom upstairs. Instead we have a toilet in one room and a bathroom in the other. The toilet is old school with the cistern and flush quite high up. Ever since I can remember, I have to open the door before I can flush the toilet. I think it may stem from the fact that flushing is loud and I may have been afraid of the noise when I was younger.
