10. You have 30,000 family photos neatly categorized in Lightroom, but zero photos of you.
9.  When at a car dealership, you translate the price of a car in your head to “Nine 5D Mark IV's.”  Your last power bill cost two monopods.
8.  Your airplane carry-on is heavier than your checked bags
7.  You describe disgusting old dilapidated barns as “beautiful.”  
6.  When performing daily duties, you adjust the angle of your head or change your line of vision for a more interesting composition.
5.  You look at a desk full of tax returns and wonder how you could photograph the stack.
4.  Your neighbors admit to you that they don't take pics of their own kids playing outside anymore because they know you will be there doing it every chance you get.
3.  You pity (and judge harshly) members of the public when you see them using their big, fancy dSLR in… automatic mode.
