Hubs: "What's wrong!? Are you okay?"
Me: "My pants have railroad tracks!"
Hubs: "Really?" ::hysterial laughter::
Me: "I have to iron them! I have to iron them NOW!"
Hubs: "You can't just let it go?"
Me: "Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!" :runs upstairs to iron resulting in being 15 minutes late for work::
For those of you that don't know "railroad tracks" is Navy jargon for having ironed pants that have two creases.
It is a big no no in the Navy.
The point of this story is that even though I have been out of the Navy for five years there are mannerisms, habits and pet peeves that I still can't let go of.
Like for the love of God a have a "gigline" has to be straight!
Stephanie was wearing this adorable outfit for work one day and the way it was designed had the gigline at an angle. When I saw her...
Me: "Your gigline isn't straight... Shift it to the left."
Steph: "That's how it's designed. ...Let me guess... It's going to bother you all day now."
Me: "Yes, yes it will."
It's not just my clothing that makes my eye twitch. I'm 5 feet tall so whenever I step on the scale I HAVE to be below 142 or else I automatically flip out and consider myself overweight.

Walking around I can't carry things in my right hand. Things have to be in my left hand. In the military you do this because you have to have your right hand ready to give a salute. I'm a civilian now! I'm not going to be saluting anyone! Why can't I break this habit!? Every time I try to carry things in my right hand it just feels awkward...
Another weird habit is I have this weird deal with the letter O and 0 "ZERO"! When saying numbers do not say O! O is not a number, it is a letter in the alphabet! ZERO is a number! The person that I rag on this the most is my own dad! My dad is a retired Navy Chief. When we are on the phone, talking numbers, and he says "O" I'm like, "NOOOO!!! That's not a number!!! You mean zero!" Then he laughs at me... and says I'm an "OCD freak..." He might be right...
