Most of these are not principles, more quirks than anything else.

I refuse to buy shoes that are sized in UK units

I also will not buy clothes were the principle price is in UK£ or where the sterling price in more prominent

Quirks from the point of view of the audience.
But if the person doing it tells you they are principles... then they are!
For them they are fundamental truths founding a system of belief or behavior, or core behaviors they abide by.

Someone said :
I actually have lots of principles that I'd say other people would think were strange.

Go ahead, tell us

Another shopping related one: if I only have a few items, 1 or 3, people often offer me to go before them, which is very nice.

I alwways decline...

Someone said :
Another principle:
I do not cross at a red-light , lest I have the future death of an onlooking child on my conscience.
Even if I am alone in the middle of a desert. Even when in a hurry.

I try to do that one. Don't always achieve it for sure but I try. I wouldn't do it when entirely on my own though. If am standing or coming up to an intersection and see children then I'll wait. I can just imagine the mother trying to tell the child 'now always wait for the green light, look around and then cross', I became incredibly conscious of it after a friend was killed in a hit and run at an intersection.

I don't shop in Pennyes.

It is not a snobbery thing. I'd love to shop in Penneyes. I often look up their stuff and see their wears in shop but I just can't do it.

They sell clothes to those who need better wages by exploiting those who have no wages other than the criminally low and exploitative. I'd decided to abandon them long ago but when I saw this image of their outsourced employees dying in utterly preventable conditions I knew I was right, at least for myself.

You don't have to be on "criminally low or expoitive wages" to shop in Pennys!

Do you own anything by Apple, HP, Dell, Panasonic, ASUS.... The list goes on.

You own tons of products by well known brands that are outsourced to factories (sweat shops in China.
No point coming over all high and mighty over Penneys.

Silly principle can come across as cuntish, indeed.
And more oft' than not, they probably are! Especially mine.

But surely you do some things out of habit or principle, which you are unwilling to think about changing (especially when they have little to no impact on others); and some of these can be perceived by others as being pointless or silly.

If the answer is "no", it is probably that you are simply not aware of how they are perceived by others!

Yes.
Even if I am in a hurry I would do it. (Either that or skip the shopping...)

Principles are not only abstract concept that have to do with higher moral pursuits. They can be little quirks: as long as you have a reason behind it, whether or not you are bothered to explain it or justify it.

Most of the time I am not bothered to explain or justify them!
