    I am guilty of many of these, but this one in particular at the moment. I think even my builder knows that I am willing to make some allowances for changes/modifications to the house, but the greenhouse had better be perfect. Even my husband says that half the reason we are building the new house is for the greenhouse--that is an exaggeration, but only a slight one.

    Default annoying!!

    I'm working on this one... I'm still trying to make them actually try to deliver (either hit the buzzer or go to the 3rd floor) or take them to the main office instead of just leaving a card in my box to tell me to come get the package tomorrow. >.< It's not just orchids, either.

    you know you're addicted when:

    You go from having 2 orchids to 20 in 2 months time. And you use your SO's game system/video game collection to rationalize buying more.

    You look at every surface of your house and imagine a big window there.

    When your work colleagues buy you a birthday gift, and they wouldn't consider buying you anything other than an orchid!
