    You're enjoying a backyard BBQ when the conversation turns to the latest Prius and its miserly approach to the pump. "You want to talk miles?" you shout, beer in hand. "Try 100,000 on American - I'm Executive Platinum, baby!"

    You are a frequent flyer program elite, alright. You may also be a travel burnout.

    The symptoms aren't always obvious; it might take a little digging on someone's part to learn your phone features more airline apps than you've got friends on Facebook. Or that your first child isn't named Richard in honor of your father-in-law, but for Virgin founder Branson (and you keep picturing the kid with a silver goatee).

    If any of the other following scenarios apply - then you, my friend, are a travel burnout for sure. See the simple scoring key at the end.

    Sadly, I didn't find the article funny. More sadly, I didn't find any
    truth in the article. Most sadly, I read it through to the end.

    I am apparently smart (or burnt out) enough to resist the temptation to read the article, thanks to your and violist's comments. Off to another thread. ;)
