Weird phobias/dislikes

I have a lot. Here are the ones that come to mind though...

Putting on my shoes... I'm always afraid a spider or some equally creepy bug is in hiding, waiting to make a meal out of me (thank you, Arachnophobia).

The "biscuits in a can" that pop when you open them (think Jack-in-the-Box... which also freaked me out as a kid).

Long fingernails on men. :shudder:

Ok, what's yours?

I have Yoyofobia. When there's a kid playing with a yoyo is near proximity, I feel the need to run away and/or hide inside a closet, until the kid and his yoyo are gone.

I clean our kitty litter every morning and night with a huge mask on, looks like an old Army type mask but its actually a really great dust mask I got at Home Depot. My "weird phobia" is that the mask may not be doing the job although I know it is. =0( I also look inside the mask and inspect it carefully before every use as I saw some movie where a wasp was hiding inside some guys scuba mask and he got stung in the throat while under water! =0( Oh, and before you guys ask I have 7 cats which use 8 trays of litter, and yes I scoop them every AM and PM and I also sweep and clean the area daily. If you stepped into my house you wouldn't know by smelling that I had even one cat. =0) Another "weird phobia" I have is laundry, after drying the laundry I fold it but I have to be sure every piece is correct, not inside out or facing backwards, and I have to find the match to every sock, if I don't I feel I've screwed up the balance of my day and the rest of my day will be ruined because of it. Yeah, I have a few issues. LOL!

I don't like the jackets that look like a hoodie with a shirt over it. Wearing a grey hoodie with a plaid flannel shirt is fine, buying something meant to facsimilate the look is deeply offensive, though. Fake mantelpieces for nonexistent chimneys are another no-no.

Going into a hospital. I'm having to overcome my discomfort with my friend in the hospital. I think my phobia comes from my grandfather. He hated hospitals. He refused to go to one until it was too late. He died a few days after being admitted.

Ties: My ties must be placed on their own hangers away from my bowties. Bowties get their own hanger and must remain seperate. Demons can be released into our plane of existance if this is not done properly!

Hats: My brimmed hats must be on their wall hooks and my cotton/ wool caps have their own wall hooks. They cannot hang together on the same wall hooks or, the world can come to an end!

Shoes: Must be polished or at least get a good buffing before each use! Entire empires are counting on this!
Hankies must be ironed and folded, ready to use. I CANNOT HAVE A WRINKLED HANKIE!!

Have you done some military service? The military instills pride of organization and cleanliness.

I am an expert at rolling panties to fit in your seabag. Ms. MillCreek 2.0 taught me this and it has come in handy countless times. Women are impressed by a man who can roll panties so they are wrinkle-free.

I still don't like ticking clocks.

I don't like it when people point out each other's differences and expand their hate on it. Not sure if that made sense but I really don't like that at all.

I do, however, love cats.

That mankind will evolve to the point that it can grow ears and toes grow back like my distant lizard cousins can. My harvest on this planet would never end and I would be stuck here for another 7 centuries.

What if the cats start ticking and then hating on each others differences?

They are even more impressed when a man can remove them with.....um, never mind. This is a family site.
