Okay, so it seems a bit anal... but I'm not the only one who does this, right?
I consider my Skittle sorting to be one of my many lovable quirks. I dump them out of the bag (unless I'm in a public place/on the go with nowhere to set my Skittles -
I have a special bag shake sorting method for those situations) and sort them every time, without fail, for three very important reasons:
1) so that I can ration out the yellow (my favorite)
2) so that I can decide which other flavor(s) to pair with the purple (my least favorite)
3) so that I can end with a yellow.
Once I have them sorted by color, I also count the red, green, and orange piles in order to determine #2. The yellows always get eaten on their own, unless I decide to make a special yellow/purple combination; of course, that would only happen if I get an usually large amount of yellows in a bag (which is rare).
My coworkers think my Skittle sorting is hilarious, especially since I'm not as anal about other candies (I will occasionally sort M&M's, but Skittles & Starburst are really the only ones that I am a control freak about), but I think my reasoning makes perfect sense. :-)
Today's LTP: Are you a Skittle sorter? If so, what's your method? Do you sort any other candies?
