Does Anyone Recognize These People?

Time for some fun!

Follows is a listing of signs that someone just may be spending a ittle too much time online.
If anyone knows someone who fits the bill on one or more of these, nows the time to call them out and let them know they may have a problem.

1. Tech Support calls them for help.

2. Someone at work tells them a joke and they say "LOL."

3. They watch TV with the closed captioning turned on.

4. They have called out someone's screen name while making love to their significant other.

5. They keep begging their friends to get an account so "they can hang out."

6. Three words: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

7. They've gotten on an airplane just to meet some people face-to-face.

8. They have to get a second phone line so they can order pizza.

9. Their wife goes into labor and they stop to type a special e-mail to let everyone know they're going to be "away."

10. They have a vanity car tag with their screen name on it.

11. They no longer type with proper capitalization, punctuation or complete sentences.

12. They begin to say "heh heh heh" instead of laughing.

13. When someone says, "What did you say?" they reply, "Scroll up!"

14. They find yourself sneaking away to the computer in the middle of the night when their spouse is asleep.

15. They turn down the lights and close the blinds so people won't know they're online again.

16. They know more about their Blogville friends' daily routines than they do your own spouses'.

17. They find theirself lying to others about their time online and when they complain that your phone was busy, you claim it was off the hook.

18. They have an identity crisis if someone is using a screen name close to their own.

19. They would rather tell people that there bloodshot eyes are from partying too much than the truth (they were online all night).

20. They type messages to people while they are on the phone with them at the same time.

Not guilty of any of it. But, you do make a very valid point. Was a little hard to read with the yellow background.

Is that why your squinting in your profile pic?

You can order pizza online when you're talking to one of your online friends on chat, and on the second phone line, you can just open up another window and order your food...

What does it mean when you raised your hand to almost all of them? 12 out of 20 isn't to bad is it? I can quit I can stop anytime I want to really I can. Honey

rm_gerson42 replies on 5/13/2006 6:40 pm:
12 out of 20 rates you in the serial blogger category. Pennance is buy a new operating system.

Perhaps, but what you say still always has true meaning.

I don't have a problem. YOU are the one with the PROBLEM. Why don't you fucking get off my back, man?

You know what? Fuck off. All of you. You just don't'll never understand.....

At least I'm not (currently) naked at the keyboard.

Sounds like signs of withdrawl. Let me see if I can find a placebo.

Yeah, you have no idea how many times I almost call myself Mac in the course of a day!

Walk in a patient's room at work and start to say "Hi, my name is Mac, I'll be your nurse today."

I don't have carpal tunnnel but I have broken my left wrist a couple of times and it hurts a lot because I'm on this laptop and I use my wrist to kinda hold it in my lap.

Nice post G, W.... I mean Mac

rm_gerson42 replies on 5/13/2006 8:56 pm:
I think a post with where Mac came from would be appropriate for us new people.

Hmmm.... just just kind of thinking of almost doing more than one of those count? ... really, I swear.. have not actually got the vanity plates.. yet..

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

rm_gerson42 replies on 5/13/2006 11:17 pm:
Thinking seems to lead to doing around this joint... so yes.

You need to spend more time blogging instead of living out real life and the score will improve.
