Back Door Syndrome

Updated on April 30, 2010

I think I have invented a new word lol because I cant find it on the internet. 

Back door syndrome is what I call that nervous instinct we get as we leave the house to go shopping or go to bed that makes us just have to run into the kitchen or hall to check that we have locked the back door, even though you may have checked it twice already and then knowing we have we locked it run to the front door and so on until you have done a circle of checking. 

But it does not stop there, even when we are asleep and you hear a noise in the house next door you cant resist getting out of bed and checking your doors etc are closed and locked when you had checked it before. I believe we are all victims of this one though don't you?  

I call it back door syndrome!!

      I call it OCD, Callum, and I suffer from it terribly - it can take me 20 minutes to get out the house or 15 to get to bed! The taps, the gas, the lights, the doors, the electrics etc, etc. Some of my friends admit to it too, but a lot don't yet I know they suffer from it. My auntie (yes Mabel!) is the same so it may be hereditary.

      The worst is when a taxi is waiting for you with the meter on!!!

      Thanks hippie queen I am glad that you like it :-) I always end up running back and forward like a headless chicken when it comes to the door, I just know that if it aint locked somet is bound to happen. :-)

      Very funny! I'm not quite that way, though I will lay in bed and wonder if I locked the garage door into the house. The difference is that I then turn over in my bed and go to sleep instead of getting up to check. I don't usually lock my door here at home. I'm not giving you my address, calpol! Voted up and funny! Thanks for the follow!
