Here are some of the instances shared by people who over-work.

I once left home to go to the market wearing my ID card

and did not realize till my friend asked me why I was

still wearing it !!!
____________________________________________________________

Once I was flashing my ID card instead of unlocking the

house door with keys.
____________________________________________________________

Me and my friends went out for dinner in one of the best

restaurants. .

And as I finished.. I started walking towards the wash basin

with Plates in my hand..
________________________________________________________

Once I was on call with my father and mom was not around.

I went on to ask, "Why is she not attending the status

call?"
_________________________________________________________

I don't login to orkut, yahoo, gmail, youtube, etc..

at my personal internet connection at home.

thinking it will be blocked any way.

Till I realize - I am at home.
____________________________________________________________

Yeah sometimes it does happens with me also.

keeping hands in front of tap waiting for

water to drop by itself is very frequent with me.

I just forget that we have to turn on and off the tap..
___________________________________________________________

Once after talking to one of my friends

I ended the conversation saying,

"Ok bye. In case of any issues will call you back"
___________________________________________________________

Sometimes when I mistakenly delete a message

from my mobile, I hope for a second, maybe it's in the

recycle bin
__________________________________________________________

Once I went to a pharmacy n asked for a tab..

pharmacist asked whether I want 250mg or 500mg...

I replied 256mb..thank god he didn't notice.
____________________________________________________________

And I - after a hectic week, went to a movie. In the middle

of the movie,

when I wanted to check the time,

I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the theatre

I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night with source code buzzing through my head. Very annoying, when you want to sleep.

The worst nightmare I ever had was when I dreamed that I was code and stuck in an infinite loop. A clear clue that it was time for some vacation.

Back when I was working on PDP-11s, when octal was all the rage, I used to play Password with my family every Sunday evening.

One time I looked down at the scoresheet, and instead of numbering the rounds from 1 to 10, I had numbered them 0 to 7.

A clear sign that it was time for some vacation.

On most modern smartphones, it will be in the 'Trash' folder.

This one's become outdated

I have woken up many times thinking that I dreamt about this new design that completely solves all the problems we are having. However, I don't remember the design. It's maddening!

It is easy to get us. We are all potential victims of NerdSnipers.

Me too. And the horrible part is - it never compiles in the morning... :-(
