My seemingly endless supply of bookmarks enabling my tower of shame.
@basil That's really weird. I have a very similar compulsion but 100% reversed. I find it difficult - almost impossible - to not complete a book I have started reading. Even if I'm not enjoying it, even if I started as it was my only choice and now I have 8 better alternatives. Even if I never paid for it. For some reason, I simply find it very difficult.
Side 1 followed by side 2. Of course, it was a pain with a needle on a record player to select a favourite track but I continued to do this when CD's first came out.
Young lad at work has a huge array of self curated playlists on Spotify.
He saw me using Spotify and was aghast that I had none.
I told him that an album is a playlist that the artist has made for you, and they are the experts. Blew his mind. 😆
All in jest, of course, but I used to have a hangup about getting through the full record.
The other is 'Sad Songs' - well it's actually 'Funeral Setlist' but I worried if people saw me playing that, they might worry I was about my state of mind and thin I was about to join the '27 Club'. With an Senior Citizen discount.

My last car, A Megane convertible, played songs in alphabetical order of title, and random never really worked, so I spent an afternoon making a playlist, and put them all in the order I wanted them.
To find that the car radio read the playlist, then started playing it in alphabetical order by title.....
From the king of bullshit, the Myers-Briggs, down to every bit of sillyness ever dreamt up by anyone that ever wanted to sell a book.
It was never ending.
Was the main factor in me looking for other work.
