It has to be perfect... or else!

So I went grocery shopping today and bought a whole bunch of fresh fruit and veggies. I brought them all home and was putting them away, when I noticed how pretty all the colors looked together so I thought I would do my version of a still life.
(all digital of course)
The top one is the first one I took, then I started fiddling around with them and just couldn't stop.

I just can't help myself, it has to be symmetrical. The obsessive compulsive in me just came to life with a roar, and took over!
The problem is the uncooperative fruit!
They are not all shaped the same!
Not only that but they wouldn't fit into my fruit bowl the same way every time!
I think that is just down right rude!
(Sorry about the excessive exclamation marks!)

This was very distressing for me so I decided to put them away.
Yes this is what my fruit looks like "put away"...

do you find something funny about this?

By the way this is what my herb garden looks like...
I did not measure between them!

Does anyone else do this?

Don't come look at my house; chaos reigns over here. You see, I am the opposite of you. I don't straighten. I only tidy up once a day. And as long as it's not covered in dirt, it's alright with me. : ) But man does that fruit look good.
