Do you refuse to take the top newspaper on a stack (even if it’s perfect)?
Insist that the toilet paper hang "over"?
Keep returning to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat has materialized?
Laugh. Chortle. And gasp at people’s quirks.

Outrageous, outlandish and downright ridiculous eccentricities exhibited (and confessed to) by otherwise normal people. From hilarious bathroom behavior to funny money and unconventional clothing habits to eating and sleeping peculiarities to germ-a-phobia and more. Collected from real, live, actual human beings!

You will laugh while gaining insight into yourself and others!
People do the darndest things!

Excerpt
I pick up the groceries in the supermarket in the order that they’re written on my list. If the bread and the cereal are next to each other in the same aisle but not one after the other on my list, I will bypass the cereal and come back for it later when I reach it on my list. Grocery shopping is like therapy for me. It’s relaxing, I enjoy it, and I take my time with it.
Actress, 28

My feet or arms cannot hang over the edge of the bed because the monsters under the bed will get them. Sometimes, I have to take a running leap from the door of the bedroom to the bed because they’ll get me while I’m standing there. Many times, in the middle of the night, my leg or arm will sort of fall out and I’ll immediately feel it and I’ll think, ‘This is ridiculous, I’m thirty-two years old, there aren’t any monsters under the bed!’ but I have to do it or else I can’t go back to sleep again!”
Special assistant to museum director, female, 32


Professional Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"A hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind. Intended for mirth and amusement, yet at the same time absolutely true, Admit It, You're Crazy! and And I Thought I Was Crazy! cheerfully embrace the bizarre little mannerisms and habits that help us cope."

The New York Times Book Review
"To give her fellow Americans the feeling that they're not alone, as well as a chance to chortle or smirk at others' idiosyncrasies, Judy Reiser has collected some gem-like examples."

The Washington Post
"Quirks cut across the boundaries of sex, income, race and marital status. Everybody has them. Reiser got grown people to think about it, and to tell her about it."
