...you sit there fine-tuning the dial on your oven.

...you know you're a drummer when your car skids to a halt cause you were praticing your stutter-kick.


Haha...

Carry on, don't mind me.

You know you're an engineer when the high pitched whine from the mobile phone charger in the other room stops you from sleeping properly.

That’s hilarious!
Or when you automate your hearing to when your wife is speaking and mute everything out that she is saying, except the part when she says " you know what I mean" and you say " yeah, ah huh" and keep fiddling with your eq....

...a fellow walks into his audio engineer buddy's studio, and sees him setting up a Neumann U47.

"Holy ****! Where'd you get that microphone?", he says.

"Well, I was at a late session at this fancy studio," the engineer says, "and the young lady engineer came in while I'm packing up,

"She gave me a long look," the AE says, "and then took off all her clothes and threw them on the studio floor,

"She said, 'Take whatever you want!'" he explains, shrugging,

"So, I figured her clothes wouldn't fit..."

Along these same lines, I think my hearing is side-chained with any audio source (studio monitors, TV, movie theater, etc...) to automatically duck my wife's voice so I don't miss anything! heh

I have a bad habit of noticing how awesome or terrible any room I'm in would be as a studio live room!

when you walk into any room anywhere and ponder how you'd set up a session.

At a funeral home I postulated how well a closed casket would isolate a small combo amp on stage or in the studio.

Hahaha so good, I'm the same exact way.

You know you're an engineer when the regular person says "I LOVE ___(insert pop star/generic rock star)!! They have the most amazing voice" when that song comes on the radio and you can just taste the auto-tune oozing through the speakers and cringe and debate whether throwing them out of the car.

When you start walking around and clapping the first time you enter a room and forget that normal people don't do that sort of thing and they in fact find it quite strange.

Everyone around you is saying "check out the skirt" and you're saying "CHECK OUT THAT RT60!" I have not been laid in a while.

I find myself going to the piano to try and figure out pitches of certain people's voices, vacuum cleaners, birds singing, and pretty much everything else I hear. I also look obsessively through film credits to see who did the sound, and through cd liner notes...

the worst thing is..not being able to listen to music like a normal person.

When the first thing you do, on turning the TV on, in a hotel room, is adjust the colour balance and check the audio level, from the cable box to TV, is set to 8.
