I really hate standard lightswitches.
Evidently, I have this irrational, deep-seated aversion to touching lightswitches. Dunno why. But when I want to turn one on or off, I just naturally swing at it with the intention of barely and briefly touching it with my fingertip.
Trouble is, I usually miss. Which angers me. So I swing at it again, only harder, to punish it for evading me. So, of course, I miss again, which angers me more. This continues until I typically end up hitting the lightswitch with a shoe or something.
If I had any sense, or if I were a normal person, I'd just calmly and sanely sweep my whole hand down (or up) over the lightswitch. But that apparently entails more physical contact than my neurosis can withstand.
Maybe I need one of these: http://www.gogglemarks.net/index.php?action=display&tag=fightswitch
