This is a question Bizarre habits

Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic tells us: "Until I pointed it out, my other half use to hang out the washing making sure that both pegs were the same colour. Now she goes out of her way to make sure they never match." Tell us about bizarre rituals, habits and OCD-like behaviour.

New shoes
You know when you buy new shoes they usually have all that paper stuffed inside?

When I was about 5 and being dragged out for new shoes, for some reason someone (my parents, the shopkeeper, didn't really care at the time) hid a paper bag of sweets amongst it all and got me to take the paper out. Imagine the giggly surprise of a 5 year old discovering sweets inside those new shoes.

23 years later and I still subconsciously look for it and find myself disappointed that there's only paper inside, every time I buy a new pair.

Get someone
to sneak a mousetrap and a couple of stanley knife blades inside the next ones you buy.

Instant cure. Also, you will not have any trouble with a new Iphone.

I find myself wondering...
...how many pairs of shoes you buy per year as a result of this early experience?

One every couple of years maybe
Male - girly male, granted, but not quite girly enough to be finding excuses to buy lots of shoes ;)

And ever since seeing The Godfather for the first time a good number of years ago I always check toilet cisterns for handguns when I'm in bars and restaurants.

It's always worth a look
I was on holiday in Prague a few years back and my mate found a 5000 Czech crown note (which I think was worth about £120 at the time) under a cistern lid in the toilets of a posh restaurant / hotel in the Old Town Square.

I'd love to know what it was doing there but it didn't seem like a good idea to ask too many questions!
