I am obsessive.
If there is something out of order, I have to fix it. If something is crooked, I must straighten it. If a blanket is slightly wrinkled, I must un-wrinkle it. These things bother me to an unbelievable degree.
That said, I must share with you that there is something in my office that drives me nuts. Every. Single. Day. And there is nothing I can do about it.
Can you see it? (Hint: it is not the box of face masks. I straightened it after I took the photos.)
See it yet?
Ughhhhhh, oh, ow! It hurts, it hurts! Make it stop!
The real problem is that I can’t do anything about it. You see, the pictures aren’t crooked — they’ve been situated on the wall ever so slightly off-line from one another. And they are screwed into the wall. And I’m not allowed to do any sort of maintenance to this building. So I can’t fix it.
Just so you understand how much I have to look at these pictures, you have to understand where my desk is situated. This is the view of my desk, looking out from the skewed pictures:
I literally have to work at NOT STARING AT IT ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.
The view looking from my desk. Ugh!!!!!!
