You are so tired that when you finally arrive to competition you cannot remember the correct finger to flip at a longtime rival.

When the programing and electric teams start arguing about who's fault it is, and you then realize your the only one on the electronic and programing team there, and the entire team is looking at you funny because you haev litterally been arguing with your self.

when you have a vivid dream that you are at the work site, and nothing is going right, and you must get the robot done by morning

and you wake up and you ARE at the work site, and nothing is going right, and you must get the robot done by morning

And you realize the front of the cart has an advertisement that reads either "Vote for Pedro," your team motto, or features a personal ad (e.g. "Team Sweetie") for your mascot.

You know you've been in the workshop too long when:

You post 20 posts a day on ChiefDelphi for the last 21 days.
You think that Whole Foods is a hardware store.
You come home and you think you're staying at a 5-star hotel.
You order Delivery from the Ram's Head Tavern.
You think the world will end at 5:00.01 AM.
You dream of that last modification you wanted to put in, but you never had the time to do so.
You think your Fix-It Window is too short.
You get in trouble with the school for trespassing because you've stayed on school grounds from 7 am to 9 pm the next day.
You can't work at a computer unless it has MPLAB IDE, Easy-C, IFI Loader, and C-Compilers

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

- You've heard the same set of songs repeated on the radio in the shop at least 10 times. (Cascada, Fall Out Boy...)

- The shop looks like a bomb went off in it, but even the mentors don't attempt to clean.

- This looks familiar:

When you begin a game of dodgeball while the programmers are working out the autonomous mode. Then you begin to sword fight jedi style.

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

When you wake up in the middle of the night, only to discover that you never went home, and were sleeping in the closet of the test room.

When you wake up in the middle of the night, and find yourself with hands in Lathe handle positions.

When your dreams are of turning down aluminum

When you wake up in the middle of the night and yell "I've got it" and rush straight into a wall, believing to be at the robotics room still.

^all of these have happened to me^

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

...when you spend more time working over the 4 day weekend on the robot than you would in a normal week
...when you have a member of your team say he'll be home in 2 hours (10pm) and you drop him off at midnight....and he forgot his keys so his parents are mad at him
...when you leave school and realized you'll be back again in several hours
...when your normal dinner time is 12am, breakfast at 6am, and lunch at 11am.
...you hear sirens from some where and become panicked becuase you think neighbors across the street called the cops becuase they saw 5 cars at school at 12am.

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

-While sleeping, you have dreams. And in the background you can hear the camera servos searching for the target

-Removing extra spaces from the programming to save weight sounds like a good ideal

-Because the school turns off the heat on the weekends, you have to wear your coat half the time

-When team members amuse themselves by rolling off 12 foot high piles of cushions (I will post a video as soon as possible)

-You literally spend more time at school than at home, and only go home to sleep to go back to school

-You completely solo wire the electronics in 4 hours out of sheer willpower, yet stare blankly at your homework twenty minute later

-The only reason you leave is because the security guard kicks you out

-You think zip ties are the most important invention ever

-Critical setbacks no longer phase you

All of the above are true except the first two
