  22. Your pets sleep on you in ways that are confining and, ultimately, aggravating
  23. Your coworker wants to be your ‘friend’ but he is a tea drinker and you will need wines. Also, #6.
  24. Your other coworkers are normal but you’re fairly certain you’re ‘that’ coworker to them. So you start drinking tea.

  41. You get mad at your friends for being unbearably self-involved and then spend 45 minutes wondering why they aren’t apologizing to you.
  42. You post on Facebook about your seven jillionth run, are careful to remember all the hash tags and to be funny about how this one was only seventeen miles long, and then the people who are supposed to be jealous and impressed don’t even notice.
  43. You behave like a condescending prick and are baffled when your friends are disgruntled by it

  45. Nothing should be extra; it should all be instant
  46. You are invited to visit your friends and you get really excited until it dawns on you that 28 hours of driving with three dogs is the same as tweezing a stranger’s grundle whilst singing 76 Trombones on an endless loop and then you are back to #34
