The name given to a mental condition effecting young adults who feel the inclination to put on clothes back to front (not inside out) and walk around backwards. They may also repeat verbal expressions such as “I’m the backwards man” and “can you walk back as fast as I can” during this behaviour.
The condition is concerning and may result in personal injury if it remains untreated.
The individual should be kept away from mirrors.
The condition is believed to be caused by extreme periods of idleness or boredom.
After two years of living as a hermit Terry was spotted shopping in ASDA with his Police uniform on back to front. He wasn’t aware at this stage that he was demonstrating key symptoms of the Backwards Man Syndrome.
