Are you one of those people that like your house tidy all the time or are you a 'couldn't give a sh*t! sort of person where you have 3 week old dishes in the sink?

I'm a bit pathetic at times. My 3 week old dishes in the sink are paper plates.

Generally, yes. I'm pretty lax about dusting, mopping floors, vacuuming and whatnot, but I can't stand clutter and shit laying around and I hate slobs. If someone pulls something out, it better be put back when they're done, or thrown away. If you spill something; clean it up...NOW. With a dishwasher, there's no need to have dirty plates stacking up.

Some of my friends whose wives always pick up after them are the biggest slobs I've ever met. It's a miracle they don't get stabbed in their sleep. I feel like a real cad if I don't pitch in. Maybe it's upbringing...I don't know.

I am so tidy, it's freaky. Everything has its place, and when I clean, I like to be able to see myself in my floors! I don't care if people think that's too much, it's what works for me ..  Smile

I guess you could say I'm a neat freak. I can't stand a un-made bed, clothes on the floor, dirty bathroom or bathtub and I hate dishes in the sink! I won't even get into how my CD's, DVD's and clothes are arranged.  Wink

I used to think I was mess, then I went to collge. When we were cleaning up, some kids on my floor had pizza boxes from the first week of school. Some rooms, we're revloting. So while not a neat freak. I guess I'm tiddy enough.  Smile

How did you know? My wife has kinda whipped me into shape but my "work room" is horrible! I clean it up once every 3 years or so. Before I got married, it was not at all unusual for my mother to come visit and clean a milk jug out of the refrigerator that was one year or more out of date!

Yes - I am a neat freak.

Everything has a place and everything needs to be in it's place.

But every now and then people tell me to relax a little and just live. So I do - for about 10 minutes.

If I have items on my desk at work, they are positioned properly on the desk. For example if I lay down my cell phone, it is straight and neat. Not just tossed.

Even in my car, if you use the passenger sunglasses then when you are done, put them back in their case and return them to the sunglass holder in the passenger door.

Okay - I'm not a freak - but I do like order.

Cheers!

i go through phases, depending on what deadlines i am on with work ... lately its been busy ... and horribly messy ...

a few years ago i had someone come and clean once a week, but i hated that; i actually cleaned before she arrived so she wouldn't think i was a pig

Curtis- I've never heard of anyone having passenger glasses(extra to offer), just the holder. Pretty cool concept, I must admit! God knows, I've got at least three or four pair to fit the bill. I just keep an extra pair in my backpack when I'm traveling- in case I mis-place or leave a pair behind...which I've done many a time! Big grin

Yes - the door has a side pocket that opens and there is a sunglass holder in the pocket. In that holder is a pair of sunglasses for the passenger. I keep them there because we need sunglasses year round up here. I just like to make everyone comfortable so I do what I can to accommodate.

In the trunk of my car, I carry a few things like a safety kit, blanket, frisbee etc. But I also carry a spare pair of jeans, a shirt and a sweater in case someone comes hiking or whatever and they don't have a change of clothes. Of course everything is placed neatly in their little holders in the trunk.

Cheers!

One thing out of place and I'm losin' my mind.

I have a place for everything, in a particular order, and it stays in that place - or gets returned to that place.

Yes, I'm a bit odd about things like labels in my cabinets facing forward, things in my closet hanging with the opening to the left (and in order, Dress Shirts, Casual Dress Shirt (long sleeve), Casual Dress Shirt (short sleeve) - you get the idea.

Same with my camper and my truck . . .

I don't lose things . . . because I and disciplined enough to put them back where they belong.

If I'm home, the dishwasher is run daily . . . and emptied as well. The kitchen is cleaned daily. The carpets get vacuumed at least 3-4 times a week. Magazines on the coffee table are in neat rows . . .

I hate it when people don't put things back . . . . my g/f is the worst . . . she's trainable though.

Heck no!  rotfl  I never clean my room (to the point where I can't even sleep in there), I forget to clean up after myself (unless I'm visiting someone or I have people over) and I am so terribly unorganized it's not even funny!

I think I could easily compete in the "world's messiest person" competition if there were any...

Yes, I am one of those people who like things "tidy". Everything has its' place and it drives me nuts if others don't put things back after they use them.

Dishes....my kitchen and bathrooms are spotless.....never a dirty dish in the sink.

There is a certain order in our chaos, but everything is more or less spotlessly clean.

I drive my partner nuts - we are Felix and Oscar . I remember a great line from the late great Quentin Crisp

There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.

that would be me , if my other half would let me .

I'm a tidy person, my fiance isn't. Makes for some tough clashes trust me. ANCFlyer and I had a great conversation about all this with my fiance up in ANC last summer. ANCFlyer having a military background like I do, we share a lot of the same views on neatness, order, and cleanliness. With me and him teaming up on Brenna about her lack of "tidyness" to put it nicely was a classic moment.

not trying to say anything about your sexuality here KROC , but , in most English speaking countries isn't a 'fiancé' male while a woman is a 'fiancée' ?

I was under the impression that it was one of the last vestiges of noun gender left over from the francophone influence of Norman Conquest on English
