You know you're addicted to FIRST when...


#1721

When You join Chief Delphi and you try to read every post.:eek:


#1722

. . . when you have nightmares of your division leader yelling that you forgot to save the banner design in Photoshop.


#1723

When someone says “Allen” and you think of the wrench set.


#1724

You walk into a hardware store and reflex attempt to put on safety glasses…

… or Sam’s Club … or Kroger … or any building, really.


#1725

When you’re still hanging around when Rotolo calls you old: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1554785&postcount=37


#1726

When you yell “6 points!” when you put a pool noodle in a cardboard box.


#1727

You look at you GPS and try to guess the team name from your altitude reading :slight_smile:


#1728

You accidentally go to church with your safety glasses on your head and don’t even realize it.


#1729

When you read through every page of this thread and laugh with every single post.


#1730

When your old coach tells you not to come to the team’s next competition because you don’t have money for a hotel room and you promise that you’ll sleep in your car if you have to


#1731

When you finally take your safety glasses off your head and it takes until the next day to stop feeling like you have safety glasses on your head.


#1732

When instead of doing work in class, you’re watching regional competition live streams.


#1733

When you stay up all night the night before the competition in a hotel bathroom working on autonomous programming, and, lacking pen and paper and not wanting to disturb the sleeping team members outside the bathroom, use a bar of soap and the bathroom mirror to write out equations and graphs to help with specs. Then you leave it there.

Our programmer did this.


#1734

When instead of doing work in class you are using Chief Delphi.


#1735

… your parents have a budget just for regionals.
… you’re at robotics more than home
… when you are home, you’re working on safety
… you only have friends on the team
… you come up with safety ideas in your dreams
… you eat mostly pizza and drink pop
… you actually convince to all of the teachers about putting posters up in their rooms
… robotics is all you can talk about
… you give all the members on the team animals that match their personalities
… you have good friends on 3+ other teams
… you recruit all of your friends


#1736

You graduated three years ago, and you’re still the most active member on here from your team. :rolleyes:

Corollary:
Your team refers to you as “The CalTran, from Chief Delphi.” followed by unnecessary fawning.

The first time, I thought it was a fluke. The second time, I realized it had to go on here:

…every time you come home from a competition, going over the railroad tracks in your car is what you imagine it’s like for a robot to go over the moat.


#1738

I do this too. (cough doing it now)


#1739

Totally a victim of both of these.


#1740

Yep,
Although there is the one random taco on my team:)
