In the spirit of the "Stupid things people do" thread, I often find it funny when you start getting WoW and reality confused. For instance...
- Trying to put my car on auto follow on the Interstate
- Looking for a mini-map while driving
- Thinking about pinging a mini-map while finding someone in a crowd
- Trying to hit WoTF when falling asleep at the g/f's place
Anyone else ever have those moments when you have to think "Oh wait, I'm not playing WoW right now..." ?
(This thread is just intended for fun. If it's any sort of violation, feel free to delete it.)
I lay in bed with my girlfriend at night and explain our next progression fight to her, so I can look for obvious flaws in my strategy explanation.
That, and I live, eat, sleep, and breathe the game - I'm at work right now, planning group composition for our Monday night raid. I wish I could get paid to do this, instead of getting paid to do the work I should be doing...

I was watching a football game with one of my guildies and my wife. A player had on some two tiered shoulder-pads. I said "Wow, those look just like those Druid shoulders off Majordomo!". And then paused and realized how much my friend and wife would make fun of me. To my surprise my friend turned and said "I was thinking the exact same thing!". My wife laughed at us both.
I will often press my push-to-talk key when on the phone...
I think everyone does. I've definitely given (and heard) more than my share of one-sided conversations.
I also refer to monetary amounts as gold quite often. "Man, the flight was hella cheap, only cost me 200 gold." People tend to look at you funny. I've also had to remind myself that, no, I don't have a bubble that'll make me immune to everything in real life...
A buddy of mine was telling me about a family reunion he was at when he had a group of 5-6 of his little cousins/nephews chasing him around. He quickly realized that he was running them in a circle with hopes to Frost Nova them once they had clumped well enough.
