Yes just to say to everyone I have ever known:
Stop , ok stop it,
stop saying “oh I’m so OCD about this” that’s not how it works, OCD is NOT an adjective
Stop making fun of me , for my OCD, I cant help it, its not like I choose to have OCD

Sorry for the ramble
I’m just fed IP of people doing this and I’m to polite to tell them to stop
