You know you have a sailplane addiction if...

Things that may signal you have an RC glider addiction.
  1. Your wife has asked if you can "Get that wing off the dining room table" by Wednesday so she can set it for Thanksgiving.
  2. You are out shopping and see a bird "Thermal up". You tell your wife that "We need to hurry home for some BS reason".
  3. You call to get a political candidates sign in front of your house so you can use the Colorplast in a build.
  4. You buy a vehicle based on how much wing surface it can hold.
  5. Your chiropractor says things like "Boy your neck is really tight." or "I wonder what brought this on."
  6. The most dangerous part of your flight is getting the model to, into and out of your vehicle.
  7. The police have you on their suspected glue sniffers list due to your "bulk" purchasing and recent purchase of a gram scale.
  8. Your wife says, "I wonder where all my emery boards are disappearing to.
  9. Your wife burned her neck when she tried to use your blow dryer which, is actually your heat gun.

I am embarrassed to post a picture of my dining room table, which was last cleared for last Thanksgiving. Hey, it gets cold in the basement. As I do not build woodies anymore several of those do not apply.

In addition to being in Jack's predicament I have also used up my birthday presents, even if I live to be 100.

That holds real for me , for real!!! I am looking for another car to replace my Durango, which is going to explode anytime, the autoshow is this weekend, and we (both, me and my wife) only look at cars that can hold 5-6 planes (no kidding! )
Number 8 is also true

11-all new planes have to be the same color as your old ones so she can't tell the difference.

12-you take off work early to rush home to stash that Fedex box in the man cave! thank goodness for tracking!

13 - You know there is a kit or plane under the tree for you. You take the plane out, stuff the box with some old wood and build/fly the plane. Then on Christmas you open the box, look at the box and gush over it. Then you state, I do not want to take it out now, it could break.

14. The boys in the company mail room know that when FedEx shows up with a really long box, it is going to your desk.

15. Your local hobby shop says "Do you want this to the house or to your office."

17. The manufacturer sent me this plane for free. All I have to do is build it and write a kit review for a popular publication.

Yep...replacing the station wagon early next year, and the primary criteria is cargo compartment length since I'm starting into scale. And what's up with the car show on Thanksgiving week lately?? It used to be a January deal.
