    When your going to bed at night, how many times do you.....

    Check that your front/back door is locked and that all your switches are off.

    I am terrible for this, on a Thursday our bins go out, usually send the OH down with it, he'll come in, I'll watch him lock the door, take the keys out and put them where we leave them, then I'll wait til he moves out the way and still go check the handle.

    He says that it makes him feel bad as its like I dont trust him to lock the doors but for me its more of a I need to know for my own peace of mind that the lock is very secure.

    I know this might seem daft to others but just wondered if anyone else did this.

    Last night I checked the door was locked, took out the keys, went for a pee then still had to go check the door, even tho I knew I had done it.

    Am I strange?

    No, you just have OCD.

    OCD.... My other half is the exact same and he tries the door handle about three times as well just to make sure

    and me .... :oops:

    Don't worry about it as long as it does not become a problem that effects your life

    Better to check your doors too many times than forget once,I saw a programme the other day about car thiefs stealing car keys from peoples houses and one lad they caught said he must have tried over a hundred doors until he found one unlocked and took their car,you never know there may be someone trying your door every night just waiting for the one time you forget,

    whenever i get out of the car i look back in to see if i've put the hand break on, only because one day last year i forgot to put it on and the car rolled across the car park and onn to a grass verge :oops:

    I always check that I or OH have locked the door, better to be safe then sorry

    I'm only obsessive over the door and switches etc, I think its because we have kids, so I'm always making sure that everyone is safe and secure at night.

    Also when the bigger kids are not well, I wake in the middle of the night and get up to go check on them if I've not heard them coughing or something ridiculous like that.

    The wee man too, when hes sleeping in his cot, sometimes he gets into a deeper sleep than other nights and I'm up looking at him making sure hes breathing etc.

    But I guess we probably all do that with our kids(hoping lol).

    Nothing wrong with checking and rechecking that you have locked the doors, I do this every night. I am sure my car unlocks by itself at night though - my wife thinks otherwise

    Checking and re-checking is in your interest and safety, so don't see anything wrong with it TBH...

    im the same i check the back door and front door untold times , every switch has to be off apart from the fridge freezer

    you should just have stopped there



    Are you having a bad day or something, or are you just generally nippy?

    You're a mentalist.

    mumsy gives the impression of floor length minging dresses and twinsets

    I'm not surprised, I heard you have bea(ds) and cox(es).

    if i have watched a creppy film i am very paranoid about leaving the doors or windows open and check them loads.
