    - Glovebox full of SO's ****, including several pairs of sunglasses, hand cream and various wipes (note that she does not ever in fact drive my car...this is just her "carry on luggage" as I like to call it)
    - Bird **** anywhere on the car
    - Passengers closing my doors with a little too much oomph!
    - ANY form of rattle, unexplained noise or sh*t moving around making me wonder if somethings gone wrong.

    :blownose: I'm feeling normal again..I do most of what's in the lists the misses thinks I'm nuts.
    a few extras:
    -finger prints on the mirrors (always got cleaning cloths to remove)
    -Sunroof blinds shut when parked up

    and I hate to admit this one.....not being able to park in a parking space normal with the worry of parking dings:ninja: (ie across 2) or driving round for 10 mins looking for that perfect spot. :sos:

    ...my wifes make-up caked finger prints all over the glove box, where she puts her make up on, then decides to get the ipod out the glove box.

    my other peeve, is her travelling with the glove box open so she can hold the ipod while I drive, then all my CDs falling out whenever i brake. ARGH!

    Pretty much everything on here, including making sure the electric wing mirror switch is always re-centred and the vanity mirror covers are closed, headrests arer all aligned and nothing is in the door bins.....

    but what about when you're out and about ?

    I always try to change lanes when overtaking ( on 'A' roads and motorways ) without hitting the cats-eyes, I always signal when I reach the 200yd countdown marker for the exit slipway....not before and not after...... and have been known to spend 15 mins ( including going back and moving it again ) when finding a parking space i'm happy with !!

    Also, if I have parked and another car either goes near that area or looks like they may park next to/behind me, I either slow my walking down and keep a discreet eye on them until I am happy they have parked to my satisfaction, or I will pretend i've forgotten something and go back to the car ( even looking in the boot ) to check they haven't parked too near...:motz:

    :friends:i'm so glad someone else does this.... I'm sure people think I'm stalking my car.

    When I park up at work I always go back out about 10am to check who's parked next to me and no dinks!!

    Why is it that whenever I get in the car after my wife has driven it I never feel fully comfortable after readjusting the driver's seat position. That's just a minor quibble as she has to do that. The major quibble is that she thinks she's smarter than the dual-zone climate control system and insists on setting the fan speed manually. Sometimes I don't notice straight away as I expect some fan noise at first until the cabin comes to correct temp but then I think why are the fans still whirring like and Apache helicopter's following me? Glance down...GRRRRRR *hits Auto on the CC*

    1. CC must be set to Auto at ALL times (22C in winter, 20C autumn/spring, 18C summer) only TEMPORARY exceptions are to de-mist windscreen and LOW after getting into a baking car left in the sun

    1a. Oh and the volume knob on the stereo must point straight up

    That is all

    Cash and keys in the centre coin tray are one of my least favourite.. I don't know if my mrs picks coins up off the street, but my car jingles like a tramps pockets after she borrows it...

    No one has mentioned their DIS yet. Surely it is OCD inducing too? Also, what about keeping old tax discs and having the leather owners book kept in its little cubby in the passenger door pocket. Or keeping the little shutter closed over the cup holder at all times or just making using the dashboard cup holder illegal for all passengers. I could go on

    Ya know, that stuff leaked into the seam between the rear panel and bumper. It will be there forever eating away at your paint and eventually lead to unprotected plastic and metal. Rust will kick in and then that area will look very untidy. So... OCD says the bumper needs to come off and clean the whole area :)
