You know you work in a carnival when...

- when pull in to a new town and with in the first hour you know where the beer store, bar,Tim Hortons, and the laundry mat are and when they open and close

- When watching when the lights go out on the Ferris Wheel becomes a ritual.

- You go to Wal-Mart more than 3 times a week.

- You wear the same jeans for 13 days without washing them.

- Quarters are like gold.

- Your trash is overflowing and your bank account isn’t

- Anything can be cooked in a microwave

- tanks and black pants become the norm - jeans are considered "dressy" at certain occasions...

- A canceled day is almost as exciting as Christmas.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- You take condiment packets and napkins from fast food restaurants - hey, they're free.

- Showers become more of an issue.

- You are no longer thankful that fire alarms are here to protect you.

- Laundry is an all-day event.

- You no longer find it uncool to take naps. In fact, you quite enjoy them

- You've eaten cereal out of a cup... with a fork

You set your clock 5-10 minutes ahead so you make it to roll call on time.

- You eventually realize that setting your clock ahead makes no difference to you and you're still late

- You can sleep through your next door losers blaring stereo

- 4am is when you go to sleep, not when you wake up.
- You know how late McDonald’s, Burger King, Tim Hortons, etc. are open.

- You find yourself "taking it deep" at any possible moment even when you have no idea what it even means.

- Weekends no longer exsist.

- flipflops become a health requirement for showering.

- ...and whats the date?

- Your underwear/sock supply dictates your laundry schedule.

- Your breakfast consists of a coke or cereal bar on the way to work... anything with caffeine will do.

- You start to hate kids, and foreingers.

- Girls: You've balanced your foot on a shampoo bottle to shave.

- Keys have never been so important, yet you seem to lose them or lock yourself out of the room even more

- Getting to the bar 15 minutes before last call after work is completely acceptable

- The majority of your scar stories begin with "so i was drunk and.."

- When you find your self wanting to or yelling at the elderly and/or young children.

- Even after a 12 hr. jump you turn on the generator and try to find a satelite signal.

- The MAIN pick-up line is "wanna watch a movie?"

- You end up buried in the stock trailer, near drowning in plush & boxes, choking on dust.

- When you drive past a parking lot of the carnival in your off season and get homesick! :(
