Short and Bitchy: Just Coley's Style

Ok, April got me going on some ridiculous bitchiness, for which I am eternally grateful. I've always like having this done a certain way. I've thought out my processes and methods at length and feel like I've come up with some "best practices" in my life. And I find myself UNBELIEVABLY annoyed when someone else does something differently.
Yes, I realize this makes me a terrible person, and probably an awful nag, but fuck it.

1. I find myself incredibly irritated when Xtian cleans the house. Yes, I know this is stupid, but he NEVER cleans it the way I like, and therefore it isn't "clean enough." How hard is it to start cleaning the highest point in the room, and end with cleaning the floor?? Honestly.
2. When I shower, I shampoo first, then immediately rinse. Then put on conditioner, do the rest of my washing and rinse all at once, because the conditioner should be left on for at least 2 minutes. I'm horribly annoyed when Xtian starts washing before putting on conditioner. Yes, I realize, this makes me more OCD than I'd like to admit.
3. I dislike having things put on top of the tv. I don't know why, it just bothers me. Whenever I find something stacked on the tv (like mail, or a dvd or anything really), it consumes my brain to the point I can't sit down and watch tv until I've moved it. I caught my little sister putting her hair brush on the tv last weekend and glared at her until she moved it.
4. I hate it when my coworkers insist on "replying to all" in an email that didn't call for it. Related: I also hate it when they send their weekly status reports to the entire group, instead of just to the manager who requested it. I don' t give a shit what you accomplished this week.
5. I have a contempt for anything tapered leg. I don't care what the fashionistas say, I hate tapered leg pants. One of my coworkers never stopped wearing them. Her clothing is generally awful to begin with, but then you add tapered leg pants with pointy-toed boots, my eyes start crossing.
6. People who mispronounce simple words like. Milk = melk, picture= pitcher, pen= pin, napkin= nackin, espresso= expresso. *shudder* Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I don't know why.

Right, I think I've tired myself out now. Please feel free to share your random annoyances. Makes me feel better that I'm not the only one who has them. Thanks April!
