    Remember the old Jeff Foxworthy humor: 'You might be a redneck if" one liners?
    OK folks, anyone want to give this a whirl?

    YOU MIGHT HAVE A 'VEGAS PROBLEM' IF:

    . Every time you see or hear a plane fly overhead, you grab your suitcase and head to the airport

    You might have a Vegas problem if...
    ...someone talks to you at a bar in your hometown and you immediately assume they are a prostitute.
    ...you worry that your local house of worship might start charging resort fees.
    ...you assume that what happens at work stays at work and become enraged when your spouse learns of your professional debauchery.

    I guess the first step to recovery is acceptance

    ....whenever someone you know says they are going on vacation and you assume it's Vegas and try to give them money to place a bet......even though they are going to San Diego.

    You open YouTube and all suggested videos have to do with slot machines.

    Every time someone says 11 you yell YO!

    You change the watch face on your Pebble to playing cards.

    There are more than one video poker trainers on your iPad.

    You might have a 'Vegas problem' if...

    - You're on a vacation in anywhere else and you find yourself thinking "meh, this place is alright but it's not Vegas"

    - Same scenario as above and at the airport you find yourself looking for gate information of Vegas flights instead of the flight you're supposed to board.

    - You compare the prices of EVERYTHING to what it would be in Vegas. "Man, I could've booked a suite at The Mirage for the price of 2 nights in this place" or "This meal would have been free if we had RCs here".

    - Under any circumstances you find yourself thinking "I'd rather be in Vegas".

    - You check your countdown timer even though you know that it was 99 days yesterday and it'll say 98 days today.

    - you look at the clock periodically and all you see are poker hands.

    ......when your most memorable Flintstone's scene is where Fred becomes a degenerate gambler upon hearing the word "bet".

    You're the first person anyone who even casually knows you comes to ask about Vegas
    You have a system of where to go to look for and compare Vegas hotel prices
    You start planning your next trip while on your current trip
    You're on VMB at work
