I grew up surrounded by people who are OCD ( Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).  OCD is a very common term. Is a common disorder where that person's mind is disturbed whenever something is not in order or in the way they wanted. 

I mentioned that I grew up surrounded by people who are OCD is because of my mother. She is someone who cannot handle well whenever something is not clean in the house. For an example, stuff not placed in its right place, plates are not positioned properly, or even clothes are not folded in the right way. This may seem normal, but I would say that she is a little extreme where a dust that cannot be seen by our naked eye, she can even spot it. 

Well, all this that she is doing is actually a good thing because it keeps the place clean but it also has its side effect where she will keep on cleaning the house and making sure things are on the right place even after midnight. Time doesn't matter to her.

So since right now that I am living with my wife, I thought that I have left OCDness (not a real term but just trying to exaggerate) behind but no, it has not left me. Even my wife is having the same OCDness. In the end, I am very thankful for having them because I can live in a house that is always clean.

    I would call it the "Good OCD" in your case. You are a sloppy guy, I'm assuming?
    How does your desk look right now? Be Honest! :)

      @RealNegotiator Maybe I should say that I am a lazy kind of person in terms on cleanliness? hehehe. If I am honest about what my desk looks like right now, there are papers everywhere.
