If I use two eggs out of a dozen, they have to be taken diagonally opposite from the middle. If I use more eggs and have four eggs left, they have to be in the corners. If I have two eggs left they have to be at diagonally opposite corners, that sort of thing. Using an odd number of eggs just throws me right the hell off.
Its not even a visual thing either, its the weight. If I grab the carton out of the fridge and one side weighs more, that bothers the hell out of me.
This is why I never invite people over.
Eggs are taken from one side of the carton. The empty spaces face the front of the fridge so that when you pick up the carton, all the weight faces the back of the fridge. [stamps foot on ground
Agreed about one thing. Using an odd number of eggs earns you a night in the garage.
If you place the carton in the fridge at the wrong angle, you don't belong on this earth.

Speaking of angles, I am extremely OCD about angles and linearity.
Yesterday, my boss invited the group to lunch. We were seated at a row of tables. The table at which I was seated was at an 87 degree angle to the bench. I corrected it immediately before anyone sat down. And then it immediately became clear that the table at which I was seated was 3/4" shorter on all sides and 1/4" shorter to the ground than the neighboring tables.
There was a Home Depot across the street. I was fighting the urge to go build and appropriate table. I don't even remember what I ate......or if I ate.
