...when you find yourself wishing that the in-flight magazines were published weekly and not monthly.

Here it is, the 8th of the month and I'm already completely sick of the May issue.

I've had that thought, too. Monthly publication means that it's only good for one flight (not even one-way if you've got a connection). However, it's not like there's really ever anything interesting or useful in there.

Certainly not worth the effort.

- You ask what type of plane you'll be on, then request your favorite seat by letter and row number

The Front Desk staff at the hotel greets you by name as you walk in the door and has already blocked your favorite room in the computer.

Or

After arriving at the Front Desk you know the staff and ask about their family and friends.

Didja know that on Olympic Air, in with the gift wrapped plastic utensils, they included a metal knife? I guess that's in case you need to actually cut your food. (Procedures must have lost something being translated into Greek.)

You can recite Gordon's welcome message by heart. (When's he gonna change that and the safety video.)

Maybe not exactly, but you at least have to be able to mimic the two akward pauses/stutters he makes during the beginning of his preamble...

I think the far more telling is knowing all the flight attendents by name from the safety video. (and that poor guy whose job is to blow into the life vest on each side).

I have also noticed those 2 weird pauses/shrugs he makes. I believe its right where he says, "Today your on a (shrug) modern jet airplane, one of the hundreds of airplanes that make up the most (shrug) modern fleet in America."

Sad I can quote it huh?

...when your choice of supermarket/food depends on the frequent flyer miles it attracts

...when you can order a dinner in 6 different languages (yet you only speak English)

...when your family wonders who you are on the rare occasions you're home

...when your spouse wants to go out to eat a fancy meal and you want to stay in and have beans on toast

...when you know every shortcut to the departure gate

...when you start asking what the upgrade options are at a PTA meeting
