9) You type in the wrong SVO resort acronym when using II to search because our abbreviations make a lot more sense...:rolleyes:

You have stopped eating apples and bananas; your favorite fruit is now oranges.

You are 5*Elite/PFL and have 776K StarOptions, yet you only have 2 weeks of vacation per year.

The 3 "R"s don't mean Readin', ritin', and 'rithmetic, they mean RESCIND, RESEARCH, RESALE.

How about . . . .

You are a manager/VP at SVO and you want to find out what's going on at your company.

The most frequently opened files on your computer are the SO and SP spreadsheets you downloaded from TUG.

Your DH or DW wishes you just went shopping for clothes or boats or golf equipment or something "normal", not yet ANOTHER week of vacation.

When someone says that they are looking to requal a RW resale 2Bd LO WMH Plat worth 148.1K SOs with a WLR EOY Gold, but can't find the SVO OM that tells you whether it is a M or V resort and you are unsure of whether the SVN, II or SFX exchange is a better value, and need to find out how many incentive SPs you can get with the EP to make it worth it, and how many 'phantom' SOs you can use for your other TS to get to 5*/PFL....

you know exactly what they are talking about.
