You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when....
« on: January 13, 2009, 06:56:16 PM »
This one of the the best and funniest threads in the old forum - let's revive it!


You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when people at school that you have NEVER talked to know you like U2, and say something about them to you.

This happened to me today - my reputation precedes me!

This happened to me today - my reputation precedes me!

Guilty as charged!  In the past an acquaintance of mine who I'd barely talked to and never mentioned U2 to them at all emailed me out of the blue and said she knew I loved U2 and was interested in borrowing a couple of albums of mine.  She's now a U2 fan! :)

You know you're an obsessed U2 fan when...

Your friends see your interior decorations and accuse you of U2 idol worship.  (Guilty as charged!)

The most mundane and random daily events and conversations somehow remind you of U2, and no one is surprised when you mention the U2 connection you have made.  (Guilty as charged!)

Your 8 year old starts singing "Lemon" in the vegetable section of a grocery store.

Your kids found out God's name is Yahweh from a U2 song, before they read it in their Bible.

Your friends come over to a party at your house, and before you even turn the stereo on they say "No U2!"

The only people who truly understand you are your pals from @U2 forum  :D

..when you have no money and go to cash a cheque against your future pay cheque and wander round the venue for four hours trying to buy a ticket for a show after having already seen them on the previous four nights of the tour.

OMG - my kids have a running "Let's embarass dad in the shops" by doing this very thing...... grocery shopping every Sat morning I have a line of young ones behind me singing Lemon. I switch off at this stage but occasionally get brought back to what they're up to after a few glares from other customers!!

Well I get phonecalls/texts/emails/asked over dinner from friends and family as the "U2 expert" on U2 things I wouldn't know unless I actually worked for U2, like, when are they playing in Dublin next, and what time will the gig start at? How many minutes long will their next album be? Does Adam shop in X shop - I think I just saw him? (did you go up and get his autograph? why not? Oh you were texting me instead!) Usually greeted by fingers to the temples of my head, rubbing in small circular motions, close eyes and do a "hang on! hang on! It's coming through!" - works every time!

When during English class we do "work" on the computers, and everyone around me is checking their facebook or playing games, and I am posting on @U2!

When anytime someone sees me listening to my ipod they sarcastically ask if it's U2...and most of the time it is.

When I answer questions or give advice in the form of U2 lyrics...and the person knows it's U2 lyrics even though I don't say so and they've never heard the song.

When someone looked up upcoming cd releases at work and immediately called me over to make sure I knew the release date for the new U2 cd...and I did already know because of @U2.

I used to be a baker, and I would ALWAYS be singing Lemon when it was time to make Lemon meringue pies.

You know you are obsessed when you start banking holiday hours as soon as there is a rumor of a new cd & tour. 
I've even traded shifts with getting the promise "if I need X day off to see a U2 concert, you'll owe me & you have to work it". ;D
