We all have weird quirks that are fairly uncommon, to say the least. For the fear of being judged we keep them to ourselves, however, that doesn't stop us from being curious about what others have to hide. So, to indulge in this secret knowledge, Twitter user @drakesbrother started a thread asking people to share their weird confessions. The thread was quickly flooded with the strangest habits. Some confessed to measuring how long something will take in songs, others said that each time they get in their car, they make sure no one is sitting in the back seat. While some of these things do sound a little bit odd, let's not pretend that you don't relate. Scroll below for the list of confessions and don't forget to share your's in the comments.

This is incredibly common. Everyone does this, actually. Intrusive thoughts. I tend to think “how much can I key this car”.

Cupboard doors need to be closed when not in use. It's not that I won't necessarily be able to sleep, it's just why would they be open?

I work in a prison and have an aversion to having my back to a door or walkway. When we go to a restaurant, my husband always lets me sit down first because if I am not sitting on the side of the table where I can take in the whole room and the exit, I will be uncomfortable the whole time we are there.

I can really relate to this one lol. I bought a set of "emergency exit stairs" to hang off my balcony if there was ever a fire. I got the idea after seeing those horrific fires in Grenfell Towers.

I have NEVER walked into an unfamiliar building without checking out all the escape routes. My first day at school ( in 1965 ), the teacher told my parents that I immediately asked where the fire escapes were. They were like, ' I know, right? '.
