#551 you name tractors with male and female associated names so they can be a couple

#552 you offer to clear the neighbours trails for free because seat time

#553 you get depressed when you aren't allowed to do anything tractor related

#554 you moved into the city against your will and even a YouTube video of garden tractors makes you cry

#555 you have used a garden tractor to get to work regardless of the fact that your bike is faster

#556 you choose a career for a presentation and it is related to garden tractors

#557 you get GTtalk blocked at school

#558 you ask for a pair of 6-12 tires for Christmas

#559 you didn't get those tires for Christmas so you ask for them for your birthday

#560 you figure out distances by driving there on your tractor and timing it then doing the math. Work was 3 miles away and best friends house was 1.7 miles away

#561 there's 4 things that make you cry:
Someone threatening to sell your tractors
Your shop burning down with all your tractors in it
The tractor you just restored got the wrong colour of paint
Your son said he doesn't like tractors he likes horses
You tell your wife "me and the tractors are a package deal" and you find divorce papers on your tractor that you just restored with the right colour and it got the snot scratched out of it.
#562 you want to build mini farm equipment and have a farm but use garden tractors instead
#563 you find yourself using wd40 or seafoam instead of cologne

564 you set your alarm for 5:30 am to have breakfast by 6:30 to go plow snow while it's still dark so you can test your headlights.

565 your English class assignment for where you see yourself in 10 years was written With you having a significant other that was interested in garden tractors and my idea of a meal (pointy stick fire and sausages)

You know your addicted to GTs when everytime you go on vacation you check Craigslist in that area to see if you need to bring the trailer.

567 your significant other puts on some suggestive clothes but you're not interested because you're on the tractor

568 you drive your garden tractor to your wedding. And your family doesn't say anything.

569. You spend almost the same amount of time working on making a barrel train car as it would have taken to restore a garden tractor.

I can understand that as I have a 12 HP Kohler that sounds like it is going to throw a rod after 30 minutes.
