    When people know how to merge on to the freeway

    The sandwich artist at Subway adds an extra piece of turkey to your sub

    When you fake out the Chipotle employee by adding a second scoop of “carnitas” after they put your first scoop down. Can’t let the cheating out

    I work in Finance so the TVs in the office are always on CNBC… until I walk in and put it on Bar Rescue since the bosses are still mostly out of the office. I have way too many daydreams about Jon Taffer coming into my imaginary bar guns a blazing at the many ways I’d have him shut it down.

    And then my mood sours when the show “Mom” comes on and I change it back to CNBC.

    When I remember something (song, actor reference etc) that has been stuck in my head for awhile.

    remembering a porn star or scene I’ve been trying to watch.

    When mrs constant leaves for her on-site job, and I still have to work, but I have the house to myself.

    Also, when it's Friday, and I still have to work, but I grant myself "casual Friday" and work in whatever I slept in.

    Once in a while, I'll run into a good beer on BOGO at Publix and just stock the shit out of my beer refrigerator.

    That's better than mediocre though.

    You don’t tell them up front you want an extra scoop or double meat then after it’s scooped you ask for double meat. That way they can’t skimp you on the double meat.

    When you get the perfect amount of toothpaste on the brush.

    When you wake up and have no work texts or late night FaceTime calls on your phone.

    When you wait your whole damn life to take that flight. And when the plane touches down in Kansas City safely you say… ok.

    Do any of the real ones out there remember coupon guy? He made ridiculous coupons that people went wild with on rivals. Like cartons of Marlboro reds for a dollar and cases of beer and what not.
