    HOMICIDAL. Yes, I Said That.

    I can't stand it when people touch and move my things around without asking or telling me.  I'm married with two kids, 8 and 5, and I can't ever find my own things anywhere in my own house.  I am sick to death of harping on my husband and kids.  Can't people...

    Touch It! Go Ahead I Dare You...

    Ever since I was 5, I have had a compulsive need to keep people out of my space. I do not like having anyone in my house (which I really struggle with for my kids sake as I want them to grow up normal and be able to have friends over). As soon as some one come in my space, house...

    That's Mine

    I always had my own everything.  My own room.  My own toys when I was younger.  My own car when I was older.  My older half-sister lived in a different house so I didn't have to share with her.  My younger sister is 5 years younger, so we never had the...

    MINE Mine Mine

    MY desk in MY office = MINE MINE MINE! I'm not good at sharing when it comes to something I've got to clean up later. Don't touch it, take it, move it... Oh and food is bad too. LOL I'm the slowest eater on the planet. I'll go to work and make toast and it will take me hours to...

    Touch My Things

    I can't stand it when people touch my things without asking.  I would prefer they ask me first if they need something.

    Probably My Greatest Pet Peeve Ever

    I absolutely HATE when people touch my stuff, especially my food.  I may be skinny, but I'm really able to pack down some food...  But if someone even TRYS to put their fork anywhere near me or my food, I'll react the same way some dogs act when you touch them while...

    Don't You Dare Touch My

    pens. I am a journalist. Don't touch my pens. I consider them to be an extension of my arm. If you need a pen to write something down, don't you dare pull the one out of my hand. Ask. I have separate pens that I will be more than happy to give you to use. What is in my hand is...

    Don't Move Anything

    I may have a mess but it is MY mess. I know exactly where everything is or at least the general vicinity. So, keep your hands OFF! You move it I lose it.

    DON'T Touch!!!!

    I hate it when other people touch my stuff, I have OCD, and in my world everything has a place and is in it's place, unless I decide different.  Even if it doesn't make sense to you it does to me, and I don't want you to touch or move my things!

    What, They Dont Have Manners In the Congo?

    First day of college, in Marketing, we had to do some crappy group work. Unlike all the other people in the class, I actually bothered to go to the bookstore BEFORE school started, so I would have all my books (used). After the group work, a guy in my class from the Congo (yes...

     Unless I'm Callin...

     Unless I'm calling in assistance to have my room cleaned because I can't convince myself to part with a bunch of my junk, I don't like other people messing with it. I think it comes from a lifetime of being an older sister. If other people touch your stuff, it's never the...
