“Habit if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.”~ St. Augustine
Ever considered that we’re all a tad OCD?
It occurred to me today…in the bathroom, no less…as I realized that <gasp> someone had put the toilet paper on the roll WRONG. Perhaps you were all unaware that there is a right way and and wrong way to replace the empty roll of TP.
Let me help you.
You do see the difference, don’t you?
Of course you do.
In fact, you may even think that the wrong way is the right way. You’d be wrong, but that’s beside the point.
Don’t misunderstand me, I was grateful (surprised, but grateful) that anyone other than myself had bothered to replace the empty roll–that I hadn’t sat down, done my business and THEN realized the roll was empty. When I sat down and looked at that roll of TP wrongly situated, my first thought was, “Awww, yay, somebody put a new roll on.” And as quickly as that thought had come and gone, I had the sudden and unavoidable compulsion to “fix” it. I’ve got to admit, it scared me a little bit.
But not enough to keep me from fixing it.
