OCD


Having OCD would seriously suck. I think I am way too lazy to ever come down with that disease. Can you imagine turning a door knob 37 times before ever opening the door? I'm falling asleep just thinking about it. Or flipping the lights on and off over and over again every time you go into a room? I'm pretty sure that would make my seizuritist act up. And why is it always random numbers, why can't it be an even 10 times for everything? I think they're faking. The perfect job for someone with OCD is an assembly line. They could get paid to just sit there all day and put the same widget into the same larger widget. This is of course assuming they can make it out of their house and actually get to work.

  1. I personally like the odd numbers. Heather always laughs at me because I will say stuff like "We will be there at 4:42pm". OCD would suck, I am thankful I don't have it. I do however have a little germ phobia and wash my hands about every 3 hours or so.

  2. Kevin,
    Technically that is a form of OCD. You would be considered a 'Washer'.

  3. OCD people freak me out! I think they are all crazy ass, bored, attention seekers that either need to find some medication for it, or belong in a hospital. I am with you Jake....I get tired just thinking about it. After watching a show about it I was exhausted....touching every corner everywhere you go, because if you don't someone will die...doing that huffing thing several times before you did anything.....lock and unlock three locks several times before you can leave. And don't get me started on those ones they call a 'washer'. haha

  4. Your description sounds like that episode of True Life about OCD. The huffing guys was my favorite. He couldn't drop a deuce or take a shower until he huffed in the right order and way...hahaha. And everytime him and his girlfriend would try to go out he would say I'm almost done and he would just keep sitting down and then standing back up...I know I shouldn't laugh, but I can't help it. It's just so ridiculous. That corners girl was definitely just looking for attention.

  5. OCD does suck...and is not nearly as cool as tourette's.

    "I have f-ing tourette's grandma!!" (Jake and Sarah I know it is your favorite.

  6. ROFL! Oh goss! I watched both of those shows, and like Jake I cracked up! I know its wrong, but it isn't my fault they are crazy. Thank you Vanessa for bringing up tourette's girl....to think I forgot about that. Man, I think it would be so fun to get those two people to go on the river trip with us! Jake, can you find any clips of that guy to put up?

  7. Well I am not OCD. As I like to wash my hands to keep them clean, but I can go on without doing it. I only wash them a lot at work, on the river I most likely wont wash at all....hahahahahaha. Can you image in you had the OCD disorder of having to slap someones butt 13 times...that could get weird.

    I personally like some of the phobias out there too. I remember when I took a class on scatology(SP?) that there was a phobia of being afraid of tree bark.

  8. I dated a girl in high school who had to wear gloves to put on make-up and would not walk on her bare feet on carpet. Doesn't seem too bad but these were non-negotiable. If she didn't have her gloves she would just go without makeup and if she forgot her socks when going to take a shower she would line towels brom the bathroom all the way to her room. Extremely strange.

    Kevin, did you take a class on phobias or just on scatology? Because that seems extremely specific to make an entire class out of.

    So what is everybody doing this weekend?
