If every so often you find yourself hitting alt+s to send an email.
How else do you send emails?

From Gary:

… you hear the words “mile a minute” and
find yourself pondering the concept of
earning bonus miles as a function of time.
… you answer the question, “How many
miles per gallon do you get?” with “It
depends on what credit card I use.”
… you unthinkingly ask your non-frequent
flyer friend why she is taking the nonstop
flight to London instead of the connection
through Syracuse.
… one half of your brain keeps trying to
calculate the cost/mile value of a mileage
run against a baseline of a $24.98 SFO-CDG
ticket, leading to a temporary conclusion that
a $507 JFK-SIN trip is “expensive”.
… you criticize your spouse for not spending
enough (“doing your share”) on the credit
card last month.
… you see a lone shopper in the grocery
store place a box of Nutrigrain bars in his
cart — and you have to bite your toungue not
to ask him if he will be using the 100 miles on
the box.
… your teen learns that the best way to ask
for something is “It’s on sale, and you’ll still
earn miles for it!”
… when all your friends are in debt to you
because you always pick up the check at
lunch.
… one of the first things you do with the
person you are training is to go over the
airlines and routes out of their local airport,
and which mileage programs will work best
for them.
… when you have not only YOUR frequent
flier and credit card numbers memorized,
but also the numbers for family and friends
that you book travel for.
… you know all your mileage balances within
50 miles, but can’t remember your phone
number.
… even though the “low fuel” light on your
dashboard has been on all day, you drive
past half a dozen gas stations and ten extra
miles to the Shell that takes Diners Club.
… the only thing you use Excel for is tracking
miles, and you write to Microsoft asking them
to include class-of-service bonus
spreadsheet function to the next version of
Office.
… you walk into a meeting at the office and
people ask, “So where did you go LAST
weekend?”
… you buy flowers for your wife so you will
get your [shopping promotion] partner.
What’s worse is when she asks you if the
florist is a partner.
… a loved one passes away and you think
that the funeral home accepting your miles-
earning credit card mitigates your loss.
… you book an international trip because you
don’t want to waste a Systemwide Upgrade
domestically.
… you plan day trips to cities you find boring
just because there’s a websaver and you can
get free booze in the lounge
… you get a big goofy smile when you hear
“Rhapsody in Blue”




I don't understand ALL the jokes, but thought some night be funny.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

...When you show up at a branch and give a banker your SSN (to look up your accts), his eyes grow wide as he exclaims "wow, you have A LOT of accounts with us!".

Childs play for most people here, but probably a lot more than the average 20yr old
