Any OCD tics out there??

I know I devinitely have plenty:

-count my steps
-after locking the door, check to see if it worked
-cracking/popping every single existing joint I have
-biting the inside of my cheeks/lips
-stretching every 10 minutes
-sometimes running/hopping instead of walking
-obsessive about symmetry (everything has to be equal)
-after every can of soda, I flick off the metal cap thingy, put it inside, and crush the can by hand.
-unglue candy/food wrappers
-i can never sit in the middle seat of a car
-tucking my head while running home on barrel racing
-closing my eyes over jumps
-trying to find pictures in the ceiling/wall paint
-messing with my necklace
-messing with my earlobes

I have sooooooooooooo many more...
I'd like to see some interesting ocd tics that people have..
What are yours?

I have two: pulling my hair/picking my scalp, and counting and recounting money. I have to count money around eight times before I am sure it is the amount I thought it was the first time. If any of those eight counts are inconsistent, another eight, until I get the same amount in a row eight times.

I also have actual neurological (motor and vocal) tics, but that's another story for another day.

I play with my necklace when I get embarrassed, nerves or shy.
Every time I see a horse I let everyone know about it.
Want another horse even though I don't need one.
Over work my self/sometime.
I have the same problem, bit the inside of cheek or my lips.
Crack my knuckles when I get mad
Daydream when should be working
Clinch my teeth when I get mad
Say "Whatever" way to much
Roll my eyes
Talk to much (even when the teachers already told me to be quiet)
Kiss my horse (Anywhere)
I can't control this but I roll my ankles a lot. (Very painful.)
Lock the doors when i'm at a parking lot when alone in the car.

And so much more. I'll have to think about it a little.

I count steps
Miss cracks in sidewalk
Rub my fingertips a lot
Keep checking the house to make sure lights are off before I leave
If my phone of cpu loses just a little bit of battery I fight the need to charge it right away.

I don't think I'm OCD, but I'm very particular with some things
Volume levels. MUST be on a number that is a multiple of five (car radio) or an even number (all else), and I always have to check the volume to see if it is right or I start feeling uncomfortable and get a niggly feeling until I check.
Maths work. If the math problems are the same, then they must be set out the exact same way and I will re-do them until they look right and are set evenly.
Car radio. I can't stand it if someone else is sitting in the front passenger seat and 'playing' with the radio. This links back to the volume problem too. If my older brother is in the front, he'll deliberately put the volume on a number that makes me uncomfortable to 'help me get over it'.

I've got more haha, but I'm not OCD! :P

I work with people with OCD and its that common it facinates me. I use to have organisational traits, especially with food, but then nothing; that is until I bought a horse...

I brush her a particular way EVERY DAY
I do her bed a CERTAIN way
I sometimes find myself schooling her with SYMATRY and COUNTING STRIDES
I prepare her feeds in the same ORDER
I constantly WORRY about her
I ORGANISE my life around her

And how do I know these are OCD traits and not just HABITS...

Because they are coping strategies; doing things this way eases my worries and if things are not done in this way I bacome anxious/distressed/angry!!!!! Lol!!!!!!

Had to add:

This isn't an OCD thing, but its definitely a 'coping thing' haha.
I cannot eat from a particular style of white bowl in my dads house. The coloured bowls are okay, and the small white bowls are okay.. but the maxwell williams are a no go.

In 2008, I brought home a 'homegrown' broccoli from school (my old school was a 'farm' school :P) and my dad put it in one of the white MW bowls. I looked in the bowl after he had cooked it and there was a massive slug...

I've got some intense bug phobia, and now I can't stand to use the MW bowls
