Proper Engineering For Life - by Katie E. and mudbug

I submit that toilet paper must always hang over the top of the roll.

When donning footwear, it is always both socks first, then shoes.

One closes the car door and fastens seat belt before turning on the engine/radio/CD player.

Your turn, Miss Katie.........

Barb, you are most welcome to share any other Engineering for Life wisdom with us.

For instance, do you place your flatware business end down in the dishwasher or not?

Muddie, you just reminded me of one of the great comedy bits of all time. Archie Bunker and Meathead's routine about sock/sock, shoe/shoe versus sock/shoe, sock/shoe.

It ranks right up there with "Who's on First."

Thanks for the laugh.

Buck

I agree about the toilet paper...I do a sock and a shoe, then a sock and a shoe for back reasons...I don't drive anymore, but I always have my seatbelt in place before the vehicle is in motion.

I don't know if other have this in certain rooms of the house, but it's one that causes Mrs. OCD here a lot of clenched fists and muttered words kids should not hear.. There are two doors into our kitchen, one end has a single light switch, the other has two switches, one over the table the other in the center of the cooking area..The two switch has to have both switches going the same direction or it makes me batty..DH, will come in turn on lights leave by other door and use that light leaving the two switcher going two directions...Arrrrggggh..Same with back doors,one to garage,one to the patio, one in family room and on opposite side of family room..Between Ethan and Dh, they have me nuts most of the time lining up the dang switches..As to the TP I like it down the back, so anytime it's over the top, I switch it around...Now, who loves all the drawers in the kitchen half open? Or the cabnet doors standing agape? See I told you I was OCD I also get very cranky when I get in my car and have to re-adjust the seats,steering wheel,mirrors and radio from that satalite yukky suff to music or silence..
Boy am I a pita

Otey, dotey. Let's get this show on the road.

Of course, toilet paper over the top. How else are we going to be impressed by the quaint little "V" tab folded over the roll in all those fancy-schmancy hotels? Besides, it's just the RIGHT way.

Next, socks first. Then pants/trousers/slacks, then shoes. 'Cuz it sure is a pain in the patootie trying to put my slacks on after my shoes are already on.

I NEVER joke about the seatbelt. It saved my life a few years ago. Always, always, always goes on first...and every time whether I'm going 100 miles of 1/10th of a mile.

Now, drum roll please.......





Toilet seat up or down? Well, duh, down! In addition to being considerate for those of us of the gentle female persuasion, it's safer for young two-legged creatures as well as our furry four-legged ones.

There's nothing more surprising than getting up during the night for a visit to the throne room and be rudely awakened by cold porcelain on one's tushie.

I had an aunt whose German shepherd became almost gravely ill from drinking out of the bowl. The toilet "freshener" in the water was toxic.

Who is up next?

I agree that toilet paper should hang from the top of the roll. I put on each sock and then the shoes. Knifes go business end up, unless they are sharp knives.
What about this....My DH eats first thing in the morning and then brushes his teeth. He says that way his teeth are clean after he eats. I say brush your teeth before you eat breakfast, because it cleans your mouth from overnight bacteria and it makes food taste better. Any thoughts???
