..... when the oven timer goes off and you rush to grab the mobile phone as you thought it was a comp message coming through!

Loved all the other examples and can relate to most of them ... quite tragic lol:P

...when you spend several hours after you get home from shoping cutting out barcodes & organising the EF's to attach them too , getting those ready that can be entered online & making the list of what to buy next for all the new EF's found . My son answered the ph a few days ago & it was for me ,someone from Coles /Myer I answered the ph "So what have I won " was only a follow up for an answer on the Australia Post Survey .

I'm unsure of my mood right now!

when you're typing someone's title in a word document, and instead of Operations and Completions Manager, you type Operations and Competitions Manager.

You go through the McDonald's drive through window and give your order in 25 words or less and try to make it rhyme as well.

When you're resting at a friends house across the road, with your foot up because you broke your toe yesterday (those karaoki nights can be lethal) and you spot a delivery van about to leave from the front of your place. You leap out of the chair and sprint through the house, out the front door, across the park and the road, to ask him was he delivering to your unit. The answer being no but you are happy that you did not miss a potential delivery even though you are now in agony.

A Category 5 Cyclone hits and you still keep going entering a few comps until you can get home to Lottos again. I ran out of ink and couldn't print any comps out but wrote some comps down.

posted 12-4-2006 @ 05:25 PM www

Before you go on holidays you check what supermarkets or other shops running competitions are available and ALWAYS pack stamps, envelopes, paper, pens, labels, scissors and laptop (only if your visiting rellies & have your own room) to check on new comp posts on lottos if they have an early nite. You go thru your rellies recycling bins and offer to help them clean out their pantries cause you've noticed a product past its used by date;)

Got my brother a plastic storage bin so he could just put his nescafe, CSR sugar, and receipts in it - but I started walking a thin line when I asked him to put his Jatz boxes in it - his eye started that rolling your nuts thing. But he is a sweetheart and the things I get from him I enter in his name because like its wasted opportunity :o

OMG. LMAO!!!!! This post and replies are sooooo funny, my tummy is sore from laughing so much. As a newbie, I can almost associate with most of these already. It is almost tragic to know what lies in front of me!! I was telling my hubby and he is like oh well if we win big its worth it!! lol:D isn't it?..
In reality though, we all could have way worse habits that cost more than just money too.. At least we are all at home right..ok glued to the comp chair *fluffs up pillow* and keyboard(being the cleanest and dust free item in the house). We will have improved our english and typing skills (entering 25 wol), when we age we will never not know where we live (after years of entering our name, address, phone number, email address etc)
So it's all good!
Thanx again guys for the laughs. I will be chuckling all day and when the posty arrives or the mobile rings ( will think of this post):D:D:D:D

twosaints....since I have spent alot of time on the computer over the years, my spelling has gone down hill. I used to be a "sound" speller, but now I have to think hard about some words for the spelling!

I have just realised just how sad a case I am - found a Priceline Pantene e/f today, where you have to buy $15 of Pantene products, then suddenly realised my friend had picked me up $20 of Pantene products 2 days ago because they were selling the products with old packaging off really cheaply, so now I've put on rubber gloves and have gone through my rubbish bin to find the receipt so I can enter - how sad is that??!! Even worse, I've found the receipt, only to find they've just printed them as 'miscellaneous items', rather than Pantene so I can' t use it as proof of purchase....aarrgh!!
