    I'm alright with batting. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. What gets me is the textures of towels, and rough fabrics etc. :roll:
    I had an issue with esclators when I was younger, and I still don't like them, so I understand.

    Bearpaw, I don't like clowns either!! Or puppets. It must have come from some old sci-fi movie, or something. My big problem is bridges. They scare me to death! And when the Minneapolis bridge collapsed (where I am from), my problem went to a whole new level. I can tell you where every bridge in this town is, and we live on a river.

    Yes!! Worse than puppets are the ventriloquist dummies. They're awful!!!

    I saw a movie when I was little where the ventriloquist dummy came to life. Scared the bejeezus out of me!!!

    Right! Do you remember what that movie was? I know what you're talking about! Talk about tramatization!

    I actually understand this one! I feel the same, but try not to show it since everyone would think I was nuts.
    But then I also have a phobia of playing pass-the-parcel, so maybe I AM nuts.

    What is pass the parcel? And does anyone else hate to hold on to banisters in airports, etc? And I read a book by Robin Cook about a girl who spread a virus by coughing in her hand and then rubbed her hand over the elevator buttons. I think I'm turning into Howard Hughes. Yikes.

    I am terrified of heights and have to close my eyes when I cross over a big bridge. :|

    This thread will only keep going as long as people are replying. If you want to come back to it, you can bookmark it for future reference. :D

    I don't like the type of fabric that is shiny and nightgowns are made of... just THINKING of touching it gives me the heebie-jeebies!

    Well, You are the only other person I've ever known that couldn't open those biscuit cans! If nobody else is home, I very carefully pull up a little piece to get a hold of, then put the tube in the sink. THen I get the little loose piece, turn around backward, and hold my ear with my free hand and shrug my other shoulder up over my other ear! Then, I close my eyes and pull. Usually I have to do this several times to get it to keep pulling and pop open. Most of the time it all pulls off without opening, so I have to start banging it on the sink. If it pops loud, it still bothers me. Sometimes it won't make any noise at all that way.
    I have my 6 year old to open mine if she is here. I don't buy them very often, but I will let my 3 year old open them if I have to!

    Nope. I don't step on those things or manholes or anything. I was taught not to, but when my best friend and I were walking up the street when we were like 14?, she stepped on one that was loose and fell in it! Just one leg went in, but her other leg went out in front of her like she was sitting down. I thought she'd broken her leg. She had to go to the hospital and get a tetanus shot and stuff. It cut her ankle up some, but it wasn't too bad. She had a Sprite with the lid off, and it squirted up the street for probably 50 feet.

    Okay, I have one more problem. Stairs with no backs to them? Like Bleachers? I have to crawl up them which reaaaaaly embarassed my kids when they were in high school. You should not be able to see the ground when you're walking up stairs.

    Going up bleachers isn't sooo bad but coming back down that is the killer. I don't walk down the middle of a wide set of steps like any of the museums or monuments. I have to be on the side with a hand rail.

    Yes, in DC I did the same thing. My daughter was in college at Galedette. Toured the city, never walked so many stairs in my life and just up and down finally gave me shin splints.

    thank you all so much for sharing your own personal "creep-outs". this has turned out to be a fun thread. and aren't we all much relieved to get these things out in the open and realize that we aren't the only ones?
    i was glad to find someone else who creeps out at the bisquits you are supposed to whap to open. i hate that. i actually had one explode on me. didn't hurt but scared the you know what out of me.

    i just recently began to worry, maybe worry is too strong a word. "think about" sounds not so neurotic. library books. any of you who have read many of my posts know that i get a lot of quilt books from the library. now i know that we quilters are clean people. but i also get a lot of novels and i read while i eat. is that nasty or what?!? should i be concerned about where that book has been????

    I use the batting called "traditional batting." I like the feel of it better. And don't worry -- you're not the only one with weird dislikes. I hate to chew on pears. They make my teeth itch. :roll:
