You know you have been in Tier 2 tech support to long is when your Mom calls you up with a computer problem, and the frist thing you do is ask for a ticket number.
Just sliding down the razor blade of life.

You know you've been in the call center too long when you can read the previous account notes in under 30 seconds, and already have worked out a solution to the problem or prepared a denial in the time it takes the customer to verify their account number and name.

You know you've been with the company too long when your first supervisor who was pretty hot at the time of hire, now actually looks like your old crazy aunt.
Make a list of important things to do today.
At the top of your list, put 'eat chocolate'
Now, you'll get at least one thing done today

You know you've been working in retail/customer service too long when someone walks toward you and all you can think is, "Please, go away; I can't do prison."

You know you've been making too many keys in retail when you hear any keys jingling down the aisles and drop whatever you're doing to run over and pre-scan the keys to see if you can do them or not.

You know you're working retail too long when (Again) you dream you're at work, and you think nothing of the fact that nobody knows where the heck anything is, including yourself.

You know you're working retail too long when you advertise your store outside of work just so you'll get people you already know in the store instead of just strangers.
SC: "Are you new or something?"
Me: "Yes. Your planet is very backwards I hope you realize."

you know you've been in retail too long when:

- you know all the phrases by heart and have made up your own to break the monotony

- know more about how to fix the SCO than your manager (new manager was still learning but still)

- can point of the people that "can't stand self check out" but still use it even when there are plenty of cashiers

- have made friends with even the grumpiest of customers cause you put up with their bs and you know they are just bs-ing around

- the "meanest" yet frequent customer asks for you by name because only you could handle her. (the one day she came to the store was her one day out of the week to come here and everyone else broke her routine)

When you dream about work, get in trouble in that dream. Then when you wake up to go to work you don't want to go and have to deal with the manager, because you don't realize it was a dream at first.

This, I have done this. Many times.

Or you call the SCO's support center and when they tell you to try x, y, znd z. You tell them not only have you tried that, you've also done A-w as well, and they're surprised you knew to do that......I know too much...

-you know exactly how to do most duties that are above you, even though you haven't been promoted (i.e. count drawers, do overrides etc.)
Also constantly do the straightening other stores' inventories... (might be a bit OCD, not really sure, caught myself debating cleaning the spray bottle the cleaner is in tonight because it looked like someone let soda spill on it and dry)
You know you've been in retail too long when: you are willing to help customers at other stores that you don't work at, but do frequent, even though you won't be getting paid for helping.

You know you've worked in call centers for too long if you feel weird without having a headset on when you're on a personal phone.

You know you've worked in call centers for too long if you accidentally spew out the company's opening greeting when somebody calls you on your personal phone.
