YOu know your addicted to UO when......

Discussion in 'UO Origin' started by Crystal Canyon, Jan 7, 2006.

  1. Koris's "you know your addicted when" tag was so amusing that I thought everyone would like to hear some more.

    Heres one that I actually encountered:

    YOu know your addicted to UO when your driving down the highway and see a huge herd of cows and you think:
    "Dang, I could get some good taming points off that bunch....good leather too"

    heheh, I use to say "i will take thee" irl alot. (you had to say that to do npc escort back in the day)

    when i first played uo...my ex-gf (started me on uo) started an argument with the ticket guy @ movie theater...He was about 6'2 200+lbs. I was like 5'9-125lbs. I quickly grabbed her and dragged her away. She kept nagging that i didnt "stand up" for her. (all the guy did was roll his eyes when she paided the last 2 dollars in change.)
    I calmly explained to her that i had no regs on me or i woulda owned that dude.

    Heres one i have never told anyone...no joke....by far the most embarassing thing i've ever done. Wife and i were in grocery store..i had one peice of gum....as i unwrap it, she snatches it and pops it in her mouth...i yell "guards" (NO JOKE...) in the middle of a check out line. Everyone looks....my wife is choking on gum while laughing. I was pretty sure i was red as i told everyone "sorry, inside joke".

    I flagged traffic for road paving/construction the past two summers. This one road had a crapload of traffic and there were housing additions being built on both sides. I noticed a large plot of land and though "I could probably fit a keep in there..." lol.

    ....While your laughing in RL you actually say "laugh out loud" by accident [​IMG]
    ....When you sit down at your local bank and just watch everyone for
    an hour or two [​IMG]

    You know your addicted to UO when you have to move in RL and you start trying to figure out which 125 items will fit into each box.

    I was just thinking how much easier my move would be if I could put everything in the moving crate. It would also be good to have a trash barrel that deleted itself in 3 minutes!

    Now back to RL packing... [​IMG]

    You know you're addicted to UO when you stayed up till 3:30 the night before you're semester geometry and history exams.

    Hi. My name is Elsgaroth Wander, and i've been a UO addict for 2 years. I dont have as many experiences as many of you, but who can deny the addictiveness of this game. I practically keep my UO CD under my sight all the time in case my computer crashes. I have a hard time trying to remember to call Brae by her real name in RL. I LOVE UO. Well, i gotta leave this meeting to work up fame and karma. Good luck on your getting over UO...psyche.

    I work in a kitchen store, and today we got the new mixing bowls in....one set of which was in a familiar shade of eyesore. I immediately informed my boss that I refused to sell blaze colored anything. Needless to say, I got some wierd looks, and my boss tried to "explain" to me that the color is actually "tangerine." I don't care. I still refuse to sell blaze colored bowls, and allow people to put them in their kitchen >.<

    Ummm.... when you say "sorry, I've worn out my tool".

    (omg, did I say that?)
  25. You know you're addicted to UO when . . .

    You're watching TV and there's this commercial with a coast guard boat and you think 'If I could just double click my pitcher and use it on that wave a couple of times, I'd have a never ending pitcher of water.'
    Someone across the street from you is putting things out on the curb cuz their spring cleaning and you think 'If I could just salvage that and sell it back to the carpenter for a few gold pieces. . .'

    I've been a UO addict from day 1, Literally. I remember getting the purple Beta CD in the mail from some gaming website. . . [​IMG] and I remember the first time I saw a black pearl on the ground outside Skara Brae bank and I kept trying to get my dad to pick it up; but he wouldn't cuz he didn't know what it was or what it did. . . those were the days. We both still play, 8 years later. . .

    *Not from Origin but nobody has to know*

    When you don't know everyone in the room you instinctively reach for all names. Done that a few times :/.

    Someone might have said this already, but there have been a few occasions where I will zone out while someone is talking to me. When I decide it might be a good idea to tune back in, I almost always try and open up my journal.

    I'm sure the look on my face must be priceless when I come to my senses and realize I'm groping for imaginary keys :p.
