10 ways to know that you are obsessed with Salk Speakers:
1. You spoke to and/or emailed Jim more than seven times to discuss your speaker options, and you spent more time deciding which model to buy than you did deciding the name of your first child;
2. After you finally placed your order, you became nervous, developed insomnia, and your wife began to suspect that you were having an affair. However, you were oblivious to your wife's concerns because you were preoccupied checking your PM folder, looking for Dennis' reply to your last PM;
3. When you finally convinced your wife that you were not having an affair but were merely anxious about your speaker purchase/delivery, she secretly contacted your primary care physician about your need for psychotherapy and medication. You never contacted the psychiatrist that your physician recommended because you were too stressed out about whether or not you should change your speaker order;
4. With the support of other Salk Signature Sound owners, and after only one or two order changes, you eventually became content with your speaker decision. After you joyously paid your final invoice, you began, however, checking FedEx's tracking site constantly, and your employer, in desperation, instituted additional rules about personal use of computers in the workplace;
5. Your co-workers refer to the new computer rules as [your name]'s Rules;
6. On the day that your speakers were scheduled to be delivered, you told your employer that you were sick, but your employer, who was determined not to be an enabler, insisted that you come to work. Since you weren't able to stay home, you contacted your wife and asked her to leave her work and drive around the neighborhood looking for FedEx trucks. When she asked you if you were serious, you thought, "What planet does she come from?";
7. After your speakers were delivered, you spent the first night sleeping on the floor of your listening room, but since you recently installed an extra-thick rug to reduce reflections, you were comfortable;
8. The next morning, your children, seeing you asleep on the floor, asked your wife if she and you were getting divorced;
9. You asked your wife for help photographing the speakers to post on the forum, and after you posted the photos on the forum, you sent one of the .jpg files to an online photo service for a 5X7 for your desk at work and a wallet-sized photo to carry with you; and
10. When you were introduced to someone named Richard Thomas, you shook his hand and stated, "RT, ribbon tweeter."
Now, your wife and you listen to beautiful music together. Your children are happy to see their parents' love. Life is good.
