Quirks

Just name a quirk you or someone you know has. They don't even have to be real, just say whether they are or not. I'll start:

Real: I am to television court cases as most Americans are to sports, but in my head instead of out loud.

When I'm on the phone to a friend or work colleague and I need to search for something or wait for something whilst still on the phone, I tell them "Please hold," and then "La, lala, lala..." Greensleaves down the phone at them.

I cannot tolerate a tangled telephone cord.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

I cannot take something apart without ending up with extra pieces when I put it back together.

If your telephone cord is tangled, your telephone is probably on the wrong side of the desk. I am right-handed and left-eared, it took me ages to work out how not to tangle the cord.

It doesn't even have to be my phone cord. Tangled phone cords are an offense against the very fabric of spacetime.
