This is a question Fears and Phobias

I'll level with you. I'm really freaked out by loose buttons. I'm fine while they're doing their job, but once they're free the evil bastards are a major threat to my life. Tell us what spooks you, and how you cope. Also: church bells, doner kebab salads, death.

Oh, another one
A lot of people say they are phobic/hate cotton wool. While I myself have no problem whatsoever with the fluffy white stuff, I FUCKING HATE the feel of velour fabric.

It sets my teeth on edge. Clicky, static-y, nasty, gag, badbad.

Unfortunately I work in a charity shop, dealing with donated clothes, and I've lost count of the number of times I've thrown a velour garment across the room and run out like a demented little girl.

I had forgotten
When I was a kid my dad had an '87 Sierra with a weird foamy-velour material in the seat covers. After a while I perfected a way of getting in and out without skin touching seat as it was horrible to feel.

Even now I check the seat fabric before even getting into a car to test drive it. Strong preference for heavy cloth seat-covers for some reason. I wonder if I bought my current car just because it had them.....

See, velour is just wrong.
