Meanwhile, here is another a sampling of the entries so far:


You know you've been a fed too long if...


...you told your daughter/son you wouldn't give them their allowance until you had "inspected and accepted"  their work around the house.


...you can recall your Service Computation Date faster than you can recall the date of your wedding anniversary.


...you have over 4000 hours of sick leave.


...When asked when you plan to retire, you reply "I was eligible 5 years ago."


...when walking the halls in the Pentagon, the giant cockroaches call you by your first name.


...you wear your ID badge to a black tie event.


Keep 'em coming!
