Picture the scene - it's a beautiful day, the sun is shining and you're walking alongside the beach with your wife and daughter, the views of the beach and the coastline are spectular but I can't help but look at the swirls in the paintwork of the cars I'm walking past and think "that'd probably come out with a bit of effort or a machine polish"....and then the possibility of me having an OCD with car cleaning hit me.

Please tell me I'm not alone......pleeeease. [:$]

Decent motors is understandable but some of the cars I was looking at were older that weren't in great condition. With a bit of TLC though, most of them would've looked so much better.

My problem is locking the car - we can go shopping, park the car, all get out, press the key fob - lights flash, try the door handle = LOCKED

so why do i get a panic attack and run back to the car to check if it is locked?

i go through the same procedure - even the missus will check/confirm that the car is locked but i still have to check for my own piece of mind!!!!!

now started to happen when i lock up at night - can be in bed but i have to nip down to try the door EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IVE LOCKED IT!!![:mad:]

is it just me??
