If you were an OCD sufferer, this badly pasted sign would get to you right?

Anyone?

    What are they advertising? I don’t see a helpline number or any offer of support. It just seems designed to taunt them.

    1. Don Pidgeoni

      I suspect its awareness raising, though it would have been helpful to have somewhere people could go for more info

      1. Paolo

        My point is more to the fact that they just put up a poster with no information as to why anyone should care. They may as well have put up a poster saying that 1 in 10 people are left handed.

  2. Major Thrill

    Probably not. But this post does because it’s a great example of how OCD is widely and wildly misunderstood. (And for Paolo’s reference – OCD is debilitating and potentially dangerous)

    Well if any one of the one in 50 is reading this

    I’m happy to oblige.

    Come over as often as ye like
    And stay as like long as ye like.

  4. Cool_Hand_Lucan

    I think the poster should say, “Affects ONLY one in fifty people in Ireland.”

    Just because you like things tidy doesn’t mean you’ve OCD.

  5. Spaghetti Hoop

    For every 1 in 50 that suffers from OCD there are at least 20 hipsters that claim they have it just to sound interesting.

    1. Eliot Rosewater

      Is that a thing that hipsters are particularly prone to do? I think the term ‘hipster’ now means anyone who I find annoying.
