My OCD Cost Me a Dollar!

I'm admittedly selectively OCD.  If any of you have been in my home office the past month or so, you will know that I can let a lot of things be chaotic around me, but still get stuff done.  However, there are a few things that I CANNOT let slide.  One of them is that the final price on the gas pump must end in a 0 or a 5.  Today we were driving up to Wichita Falls, TX to week 3 of youth camps and we had to stop and get gas.  Rarely does the amount end on a 0 or 5, so I usually do the no-no of topping off just a bit to get it to a 0 or a 5.  For many years I was pretty good at it!  Today, though, I ran up an extra dollars worth of gas just to get to a 5!!!  It looks like this little quirk will have to be laid to rest...

I know what you mean! I'm the same way about the stereo volume in my car, it either has to be on a 0 or a 5.

What is WRONG with you? It has to be an even NUMBER. Your OCD clashes with my OCD. God forbid you even touch my thermostat.

See, that's how I know Doug and I are meant to be together. We agree on the even number thing.
