You Know You Ride Transit Too Much When. . .

...you can stand without holding on to any handrails
...you can fall asleep standing up
...you know which car lets off closest to the stairs (or your transfer point)
...you are extremely annoyed by people who don't obey the "stand right, walk left" rule
....you know exactly which trains you can catch and still make your bus
...the bus driver (and newspaper guy) knows your name
...you don't stop to look which way you are going right outside the train door
...you refuse to use anything other than a SmarTrip (or similar) card for payment
...you know on which side of the train the doors will open
...you no longer refer to maps and instead count stops
...you know exactly how much longer it will take to get home/to work from every stop along your route
