My rl friends and I call each other by our in game names and yeah it is embarrassing. I'm sure most of you do this too when you are typing on an instant messenger you'll type "/l, /p, etc" before starting your sentence. I've gotten so bad that I dont even bother to backspace it.

Looked directly into a cashiers face after you realize they gave you the wrong change and say "You didn't give me enough gil" then trying to play it off like you said "You didn't give me enough, girl" and HE looks at you like you had too much to drink?

Good times, and it took 2 managers and 3 cashiers to figure out that they shorted me 15 cents.

Best story I've ever heard from an old in-game friend of mine from Washington:

When we were in one Sky Linkshell together, he had to go afk because had jehova's witnesses knocking at his door, and then he shooed them away from his place by telling them, without realizing it, "I'm sorry, but you'll have to excuse me, I'm busy killing a god."

Me and my wife talk to each other like we are auto-transalating our words. Entire conversations in <Please Assist>, <No, Thanks>, <Why?>, <I don't know>, etc.... Sure it doesn't help she speaks Japanese and I don't but sometimes I wonder if she thinks I am just another NA ingame when she speaks in english lol.

I talk about money in the thousands; when my meal comes to 10 dollars, I'll say 10k. There have also been times when I've been say, stuck in traffic and I'll think, "omg eff this, Im warping home." and then sadly remember I cant. ._.

I remember one time leaving my dad's house after a dinner party and he asked what my plans for the rest of the night were, and I said without thinking that I had to go to Limbus. I played it off like it was the name of some dance club though. :3

You ever wonder why we feel the need to make up "normal" situations when we slip up like that? Like going to a crowded club and rubbing up on complete strangers is somehow more normal than playing a video game with some friends.

I haven't had real bad slip ups in FFXI, but I did work at a hospital long enough to start calling waitresses "Nurse".

There was once I was taking the subyway. As I was looking for my stop on the map, I kept on searching for the red dot on the map. The "outpost" where I can warp home later when I'm done with my errands. -.-

I am going to school for Nursing, and once I was doing a speech on IQ tests. Instead of saying IQ, I kept saying HQ (100 crafter in me I guess). I honestly don't think anyone was paying attention enough to notice, but I did!

lol all the time I avoid going to the bar with my friends by using excuses like "I've gotta be in Dynamis in an hour..." or "Cant make it tonite, I'll be in sea farming ix'drg."

It definitely gets a lot of weird looks, saying it so normally to people who dont play.

Lol I use the <Too weak> and <True strike> stuff in normal conversation... though oddly those dont garner as much attention lol

I recently went to Fan Fest and met up with some of my LS members for some Korean BBQ and beer... let's just say two of us ended up doing /dance4 motion in RL on the street corner in Hollywood. Woot.

Muttering some half-incoherent thought about "sleep the NM" in your sleep, while your roommate (also an xi player) hears it... >.>

The other day, when I noticed a button on my stereo that said RDM, I immediately thought Red Mage instead of Random. Then a truck went by me shortly thereafter with the letters BST on it. A trucking company, owned and operated by Beastmasters.

I can't stand people who type: [Too weak] or [Can I have it?] on forums using autotranslate brackets ...

I was taking a college class a year or so ago and overheard someone in the break room say: "STFU you *** sword" and his friend replied "did you just call me a *** sword?". They laughed about it (I assume they both played the game).

My character is modeled after my wife if that counts for this thread ... short with red hair and a poneytail.

I've also seen someones tags on their car saying "FFXI 75WHM"

I call my husband by his in game name too often. My mother who is a anti-gamer has asked my neice (who is 4) if she wants to speak to auntie chucky on the phone.

<Thanks for the offer i will have to pass> and <*** Sword> are two phrases that are used in my house way to often

A guy in my ls once asked his mother to pick him up a stack of cookies when she went to the store.
