Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

-When you run out the COMPLETE videotape whilst doing a timelapse video starting Monday night
-When someone talks about "that parmesan smell" and he's talking about lexan shavings, not cheese
-When "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny" is on it's 15th repeat and all the team members are still singing along (and no one's sick of it yet)...

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

You know you have been in the work shop WAY too long when

-- you go to the store to buy milk and realize the expiration date is the ship date.

-- When your parents call you at the shop to ask if you are ever planning to see them again and you ask .. who is this?

-- When you suddenly realize the fedex guy is standing here and your still working with the dremel. shaving wieght.

-- When you suddenly realize your mom (me) is at robotics simply to see you (son) because she actually missed you.

--When someone elses kids call you mom....regularly

--When vegetables become just not important as at least getting some kind of food substance into the kids...regardless of healthiness.

--When you post on Chief Delphi as a parent and you realize you spent too much time at the workshop. and it is 5 days after ship date and you just realized it.

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

When you can actually post in this thread.

When you have a question drivingt you nuts but are to preoccupied to answer it.

When 2am is first break.

When you realize your face doesnt like machine lube on it and turns red and puffs up. and you dont care.

When your mentors just start putting random numbers down on your time sheet.

When sleep is a word you lose contact with.

When you wear the same pants for nearly a week cause you don't feel like looking for clean ones knowing they will get just as dirty.

When you talk in words other people dont understand.
When you forget you even had parents.
when you know your team better then your family.
When you know eveyones birthday on your team, and forgot your familys to make room.

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

When you hit the "Send' button on your cell phone, and every number you've called within the past 2 weeks is someone on the team.

When someone says "food's here" and nobody responds. Then it's another hour of "hey guys, how about this idea...". and the only way you can eat is to say "hey guys...food."
