2) When driving threw rush-hour traffic, you wonder why you didnt BIND at home so you could GATE back.

3) You glimpse roadkill on the highway and wonder if anyone's looted it yet.

4) When driving along at dusk you want to see if the car in the distance is a cop so YOU MENTALLY TARGET THEM.

5) You Wife/Girlfriend/Husband/Bofriend's "CON" goes from warmly to scowls.

6) You drive past cop and wonder if you "AGGROED" him.

7) While taking out the trash you hear the noise for finishing a quest and see "YOUR FACTON WITH WIVES/HUSBANDS/GIRLFRIENDS/BOYFRIENDS HAVE INCREASED!"

8) You walk into a restaurant and yell "CAMP CHECK" to get an open table.

9) Watching a movie in the theater and the hero is getting chased by the baddies and you shout "TRAIN TO ZONE".

10) When a plate thrown by a Neglected Spouse hits YOU for 46 damage.

11) You ask your boss to "NERF" the guys in admin.

12) Sitting in traffic and you wish that Lilwolf was there so you could get a "TELEPORT" to work.

13) When someone cuts you off in traffic and all you can think about is "PVP" and that guys face on the head of a newbie........

14) When you see you Recived a Pay Cut and shout "I'VE BEEN NERFED"

15) You roll over after sex and say, "OUT OF MANA"

16) A female acquaintance shows you her new engagement ring and you say "COOL!!! Whats are the STATS on that ?"

17) Go to the casino and see the people playing the slot machines. You think to your self, "THAYS NOT FAIR! THEY CAN'T CAMP 2 AND 3 OF THOSE AT A TIME!"

18) Thinking to yourself "My Spouse is Mad Maybe i should BEFRIEND Her."

19) You know that you can start one load of laundry, vacuum the living room, and get a drink from the kitchen in the time it takes you to go from OOM to FM.

20) You start drinking milk for the first time in years..... because it's only 3cp.

22) When you call your wife by her EQ name in complete seriousness... or real-life friends who play... "Hi Gronak.. erm.. Bob.. Sorry."

23) Your boss starts looking like an Orc PAwn.

24) When you try to "MEMBLUR" your wife to avoid a fight and instead of finding the Divorce Papers.

25) Your Neighbors ask your kid if you have been sick because they have not seen you in awhile.

26) When you are watching a program about Stonehenge on The Discovery Channel and you can't help thinking: "They Know Nothing About Druids At All Do They ?"

27) You actually name your dog Jobotik and then get fustrated when he won't respond to /pet sit down, never mind /pet follow me.

28) You're talking to someone on AIM or YAHOO IM and you preface everything with /g or /t

29) /CON boss "Your boss looks like a reasonably safe opponent."

30) If you are in High School and in track you wish you had "SOW" at a track meet.

31) At Work when you meet up with real-life EQ friends you talk about EQ for hours and don't get any work done.

32) When you actually fire up a spreadsheet at work and make a list of all the equipment you still plan to get and what it's effects on your stats will be..

33) When you are having nightmares about EQ.

34) When you try to explain the game to someone without using all kinds of EQ-terminology and simply are not able to.

35) When you get invited to an Efreeti run, and you turn down sex and sleep to go along.

36) When you look at your co-workers and wonder what class /race they'd be in EQ.

37) you answer the phone with "HAIL" and try to cover it up with "LO"...."HAIL-LO?"

38) When you actually throw away the junk food wrappers so you can see your monitor.

39) You enter your local shopping mall
Once inside you SHOUT:
"WTS Robe of the Oracle AC 9, +5 int, +5wis, +25mana, weight 2, pure casters only, 900pp."
And then when a bunch of people start looking at you funny, you then get frustrated and SHOUT:
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!"

40) When you Step on a spider and are disappointed that it didn't squeel like a pig.

Here's one that actually happened to me once...

41) Someone says something funny at work and instead of laughing, you start to say the letters "L, O, L" then realize what you're doing and try to disguise it with a cough...

Haha Silly, I've done that before too. :( And I've started to call Lanyder "Lany" instead of his RL name before, a couple times at least. I still can't remember people I met at the first CN convention's RL names, but I know just what their game names are! When I talked to Szorkie Poo on the phone, he answered with his RL name, but I said, "Szork, is that you?" haha. And I have people's game names programmed into my phone, because I wouldn't know who I was calling if I put their RL names in there. :/

105) A rude customer is nagging you and you say "FORWARDSLASH IGNORE!"

107) Your dog takes off running for you and you say "Pet Back" !

108) when you can have a conversation with your spouse while you are playing and have absolutely no clue what the two of you just talked about because you were busy killing the Froglok Executioner

113) When your dog is whining to go outside, you think: "Should i MEZ him to buy sometime?"

well last year at chez Spork, one of the family asked if I went by some odd game name, I informed them of my real name and said that will do fine :D. I try not to go be EQ name, but I have only talked with a few in game people really

I think it was Szork's mom, shortly before she told Zyton to bang his head against a wall - which he promptly did.

-When the cost accountant that your company flew in from Brazil to help restructure your corporations mulit-million-dollar weekly expenditures asks if he could borrow your stapler because his disappeared off of his desk and you say "Sure thing. This is my good one so make sure no one ninja's it!"

He then looks at you, cocks his head and says "I won't let anyone NINJA? it"

I think todays GU comic addresses this, just replace Warcraft with Everquest and it is quite valid.

128) You head to another state to visit your boyfriend. When you cross the state line you send a text message: Zoned into PA. And he understands every word you just sent. (he plays too)

129) Instead of real life shinies, your honey gives you nice gear to show they "love you". :teeth:

your IT guys get mad at you because you have 6 different sign-on's to access all of the things you need to do for work, and when they go to work on your system they can't understand any of your passwords because they are all eq names

150. You return from the grocery store and tell your spouse about all the good loot you got there.

151. You use "drying off from the shower" as an excuse to log in for 30 minutes before work.

Even at work and when using other programs, I tend to hold down the shift key when typing in caps...because I have to in EQ...

I almost told one of my co-workers that I needed a quick AFK...right after which, I almost said L-O-L...

When talking to RL friends who we also know in EQ, I sometimes inadvertently call my husband by his character's name...

I'm sure I do WAY more than that, but those are the ones that stick out in my head!
