OT: Obsessions, Compulsions, Quirks, and OCD. What's yours?

Everyone has that one thing that bugs them, or that they just have to do. I call them little "quirks."

In the comments I want you to say what yours is. It can be as embarrassing as you want, and I promise you that you will not be judged.* I'll start off by saying what mine is:

Every time I brush my teeth i have to follow this exact method. First I have to wet my toothbrush, and then once I do that I add the toothpaste, and before I start brushing I have to wet my toothbrush again. It sounds really weird, but I have to do it that way. I also have to correct people when it comes to typos, sometime I have to prevent myself from doing it so I don't seem like a know-it-all, but it is definitely a compulsive focus of mine.

What's yours?
