You Might Be An Addict….Part 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

It’s my turn to take over TSTO Anonymous, just for this week.  Back in September we had a fun little post up entitled You might Be An Addict…similar to Jeff Foxworthy’s “You Might Be A Redneck…”.  We had so much fun with the first one we decided to do it again!

  1. If you leave your Kindle speakers turned ALL THE WAY UP just to hear Homer’s notifications, regardless of how awkward it is.. You Might Be An Addict!

  2. When you are open about your beta town but secretive around Springfield delta….not that I have one

  3. Just wanted to note that I posted the 2nd and 3rd items not Barbsinbox. Thanks.

  4. You’re an addict if you dream how you springfield would look like if you had an abundance of donuts

  5. 🙂

    Loving all these. Keep them coming.

  6. You might be an addict if when leaving the house for the day, you go cold because you may have left your tapped out device behind. Then you get a feeling of such pure, unadulterated joy and relief when you feel it in your pocket.

    You might be an addict if you refer to your phone as a ‘tapped out device’. Who makes calls these days anyway? 🙂

  7. You know you are an addict when the first question you ask when discussing a holiday break is does the hotel have free wifi

  8. …if you HAVE an A game, a B gae, and a C game in the first place

    Too true I need therapy….lol or more doughnuts?

  9. You might be an addict…
    …if you’ve laid out, scheduled, and organized all of your Halloween quests in Microsoft Excel
    …if you start shaking and get nauseous when EA announces server maintenance
    …if when you go to the local Kwik-E-Mart, you try to buy things with donuts
    …if the most you’ve ever known about the Odyssey comes from Season 13’s “Tales from the Public Domain”
    …if TSTO Addicts is your browser’s homepage
    …if you are managing your A game, B game, and C game at the same time on 3 different devices
    …if you HAVE an A game, a B gae, and a C game in the first place
    …if it’s 12:30 in the morning and you have to stay awake because the rent on your 8-hour buildings will be finished in 13 minutes
    …if you’re walking on the street and you suddenly notice you’re humming the music from Tapped Out
    …if in school, you’re secretly collecting rent from houses and resetting 4-hour tasks underneath your desk
    …if every statue you pass on the way to work looks like Jebadiah Springfield
    …if you start hallucinating exclamation points on top of characters because you really need more quests
    …if you had to borrow money from your kids’ piggy banks to afford buying that boatload of donuts you need for the Halloween event
    …if for a birthday present, you wish for donuts…and not the edible kind
    …if you’re mining data files to find spoilers
    …if you check more than your Facebook (or if you have a but no Facebook)
    …if you’re able to spell Apu’s last name by memory (Nahasapeemapetilon)
    …if you are re-buying and re-selling countless weather stations in order to get that XP needed for a bonus level up
    …if you are able to make this long of a list of “You might be an addict…” statements!

    Most of these are true for me (sadly), hopefully some of them make the list for You Might Be an Addict Part 3! This is definitely one of the best segments on this blog, so please make more!

  10. You get invited to a Halloween party and think, “Is that still going on?!”

  11. Can you comment the link of the first “You might be an addict” ?

  12. You might be an addict if this is your second Halloween playing Tapped Out!
