You know you're a photographer when...

This is meant to be a fun thread :-)
Who can come up with fun phrases starting: You know you're a photographer when...

Here's some examples:
You know you're a photographer when you use a tripod as a clothes hanger when ironing.
You know you're a photographer when you see life in f/2.8.
You know you're a photographer when you change your lenses more often than your underwear.


Have fun!

You know you're a photographer when you see imaginary rule of third lines every time you look at someone's face.
You know you're a photographer when you reach for your ND16 neutral density filter when you see someone you do not particularly like.

... when you start noticing blown highlights and chromatic aberrations in the newscast.
... when you start hearing "Your camera takes nice pictures".
