    Copied this idea from a Thread on FT but I figured we'd have more fun here!

    1. When the Agents at an Airport print out your Boarding Passes already and say "Have a Good Trip to XXX Mr. DIG/R_1K."
    2. You get onboard and say "Good Morning Janelle(fictional name)" to the "A" on your usual PBI-EWR 10am B752 flight...
    3. When you make your connection in EWR you get greetings from a certain BusinessFirst Concierge...
    4. When you're half-asleep on a redeye and in a daze thinking where am I going, oh well I'll just find out when we land at the nearest United Club...
    5. When the US Airways folks at your Airport complain that you've been flying CO too much since you left them as your airline of choice in 2008 :D
    Post your "You Know You Travel Too Much When..." here!

    I wake up in the middle of the night and think I am somewhere else until I open my eyes.

    When even the UC agents at a busy airport like EWR (which is not my home airport!), know my name... and the bartenders know my drink before I order it ;)

    All of them. And the passwords. And all the passwords are different.

    I don't know my mother's phone number but I can tell you my IHG / Hilton / Delta / AA number by heart.

    When you fly out and back with the same crew and they go "you again" all for miles...

    ...when you know by heart the flight numbers, departure and arrival times, and equipment types for the sector you're flying most frequently on your airline of choice...

    They do that all the time in EWR, recently UACO employees had the option of acquiring 25k Miles for $250 and they kept asking me how to better use them for F awards and etc etc...

    Or the terminals.

    Case in point you fly Delta out of JFK and you see your gate is over 20 you know to go to Terminal 2 regardless of what the signs say.

    You have used a room key from a previous trip to try to open your current hotel room. Worse yet, you went to the front desk and told them your key didn’t work.

    Usually by the third or 4th key I find the right one.

    My version of this would be:

    When you wake up in the morning and have absolutely no idea where you are.

    This happens often. Actually just happened last week, but not in my hotel. I was in a store, just zoned out and had no clue where I was or why. Oops. Jet lag.

    When you get into the rental car, and you favorite the stations on the radio as you know them already.

    When the airline agent hugs you on arrival at checkin rather than asking for ID,
    When your spouse gets a hug too,
    When you know more about the lives of hotel staff than you do about those of your family members,

    this is terrifying but happens to me often enough that Alzheimer's is the only reasonable explanation. Luckily that is not the correct one,

    My version is, You wake up and know you are not in the same room as yesterday, but still don't know where you are. Or better yet when you do figure out where you are, you're home.
