So… I have always recognized that I can be a little particular about things… but I am starting to think that I might just have some real OCD going on inside my head. You see, I’ve been training a new girl at work the past couple of weeks and I’m realizing that little, crazy things make me really, truly crazy.
For instance, little things like writing the date wrong (7-31-14 is wrong. Its 7/31/14.) and inconsistent capitalization when naming folders and documents. Or, this one time, she was copying a list of directions for something and made an ink dot on my directions. I actually wanted to rewrite the whole page of directions, but due to time constraints I decided it would be better to chop the portion of the note with the dot off. Yup. Threw that crap in the trash.
I think that was when I realized how nuts I actually am. I couldn’t handle a dot of ink on my sticky note.
So then, the really crazy part, is that now that I see the crazy, I am trying SO HARD to hide it! I can’t let it go, but I can’t let anyone else see the crazy.
It will be really nice when I can go back to writing the date the right way, capitalizing words, and keeping my stuff free of ink and messiness! Then, I can go back to my obsessiveness with less of an audience.
