Hear me out! Everyone has SOMETHING they’re high maintenance about. You can be the most laidback mofo in the history of ever but something gets you in a twist. What’s your thing?

    I don’t want a loose hair anywhere near me. I have longish hair so it drives me nuts when I realize I’ve had a misc hair hanging off my shoulder blade all day, totally wrecking my cute messy ponytail

    I'm very laid back, BUT, I know how many glasses and pieces of silverware there ought to be in the cupboards and drawer, and if any are missing I have to find out where they are and account for them all.

    I only (really) like drinking wine out of thin glass glasses. I actually don't love thick glasses or mugs either.

    I camp a lot, I do things that are dirty a lot, and I sorta pride myself on being able to "go without" things when necessary

    ...but my whole day topples if I can't brush my teeth first-thing in the morning

    Also only the best toilette paper and really I’m not all that pleased with it.

    White towels please...if I have to use a coloured one, I'm counting down 'till I can shower again, and use a white towel.

    Coffee.

    I know when you've burned your beans (Starbucks) I know when you've misground the bean for the type of espresso you're pulling (DutchBrothers). I know when you've got an improper water to grounds ratio (Dunkin) and I HATE it when you add junk to it that shouldn't be in coffee. (ALL OF YOU)

    But just to be clear, crappy coffee is better than no coffee so I'll still drink all of it. BUT I'M JUDGING YOU IN MY HEAD.

    This was my dad. I'm not much of a coffee drinker now, but growing up with him, he taught me how to make it right. I think you and my dad would have gotten along quite well, at least when discussing coffee.

    All of this, yes.

    Dear Panera, I don't understand why your standard of preperation is to just lob the components of a sandwhich onto bread. Please unfold the sliced meats, drain the lettuce, spread the condiments evenly across the bread instead of a splat in the middle. Come on... you know you wouldn't make your own sandwhich that way. Take some pride in what you do.

    I do not have an appreciation for having to remake my foods into a presentable food item.

    You do not want to go to a restaurant with me. I'm "that guy" who always orders off the menu

    Guilty as well.

    Also anything that is "can make it work" or "it will work until you find something better" ... I don't want it. It's either exactly what I need or want, or bust.

    Im very laid back 99% of the time. I am high maintenance with my personal freedom, choices and space. I can't stand when someone tries to encroach on it. If they keep doing it they see another side to me. Not a nasty side but I will shut them out while still being cordial because I don't see why I should let someone else make me lose the plot either or get involved in a dialogue that I don't want to waste energy on. I should add that I very much respect other people's personal space, time etc so I don't want it done to me.

    Other high maintenance side, if someone pokes or prods me, I will scream. I am mainly talking about my bf who thinks it's funny to 'set me off' by either hair pulling or a quick poke. Not sexual. Just extremely annoying.
