I did that before SL =X

 

...when viewing web pages and pictures and you try to click zoom/pan to get a closer look or better angle.... especially bad for me since I map my extra mouse buttons for that in SL, so it's near automatic to try with pictures

When you walk into a lumber merchant's yard and want to teach them how to texture and I can't look at plywood anymore without thinking of editing it.

A female newsreader on TV yesterday had very "bouffant" hair that just didn't look right, and I wanted to click it and click the -.05 button.

Whenever I check out googlemaps street view, I try to alt view inside the places I used to live or work or visit.

If I see someone interesting on the bus or in the street, it ticks me off I can't just click on them to pull up their profile.

And when I've been waiting for a bus for what seems like hours I just wish one of those driverless vehicles that patrol the Linden mainland would happen on by then I could hop on board.

When I wish I could put certain people talking into BUBBLE CHAT so I don't see it, especially those who call when I'm on SL.  :matte-motes-sick:

This. So many times, on all kinds of software including browsers, photoshop, video playback and, recently, grabbing for a non-existant ctrl-alt-mouse combination on a friend's digital photoframe to see what was just off the edge of the picture.

I am ALWAYS trying to ALT zoom,on every program and webpage. I always feel like a right muppet as well :*)

My personal one though is a genuine little tinge of sadness when I realise I can't TP to work.

Looking for the HUD by the door to switch off the weather machine when it's raining.

Staring hard at anything grey to see what colour it will be when it fully rezzes.

You know you are hooked on SL when you take your computer/laptop to the bathroom to get away from the screaming kids and let the entire grid hear them screaming through your mic while you hiding in the bathroom from the kids and husband.  (Seen this many times).
