The moment when you land by the signpost and walk the wrong way, crashing into the edge of the screen or face first into a tree whilst your little legs scrabble at the floor. This always happens when you arrive into a busy place.
Or when your lag makes you swagger about like a drunken sailor, you march on the spot for a while and are then propelled at full speed over the edge of a cliff.
Or climbing something and getting stuck at the top with your little butt wiggling.
Or repeatedly trying to jump at a quoin and missing, you just get the trajectory right and someone flies past and collects it just as you take off.
You pause half way up a tree to IM without really looking, glance back at your main screen, and realize your glitch is wearing the latest fashion statement: climbing chicken butt hat. Bonus points for doing this on a street where a rook attack has just occurred and there's a gajillion glitches around to appreciate your aesthetic sense.
Rook attacks are also a great time for slipping on the keys so everyone can see how you painfully sacrificed to destroy the common foe by donating a set of lips.
When you want to visit a friend's house in Groddle Forrest and take the subway from Kongu Hop to GFJ and then walk back to Kongu Hop because you forgot that you had set your destination to the Kongu Hop subway station instead of your friends house.
That time in RL where someone asks where you get a pair of tongs, and you say, the best place is at the tool vendor, in Cebarkul, and then they pull out their phone and Google "Cebarkul", qhich then turns out to be an island off the coast of asia.
The time in RL where you forget you arent playing Glitch, and whack yourself into a pole/car/mailbox.
...when lag causes your not-all-that-great-to-begin-with jumping skills to REALLY go down the tubes as you miss easy jumps over and over and over again, you realize you left your spinach at home, you begin to cause other Glitchen in the street to worry about you, and you start to despair of ever being able to leave a particular street without giving up and refreshing the browser or teleporting out, and your target destination is only two more streets away.
(Kronos, I literally lol'ed thinking about that. XD)
Today: When you reach over to pick the cucumbers off the happy white picket poking out from the crop plot, only to realise 1. there's no crop plot and 2. there's no cucumbers, it's just a white picket fence with some weeds around it. >_> Then your husband stares at you trying to figure out why you're standing there with your mouth open and a slightly glazed over look to your eye as your arm is reached partway out toward nothing.
When you go to your friends house just after NEW day and forget they have their icons out as you are running through the house . (sigh ) .
When you accidentally wake your husband up early on Saturday morning because you are giggling so LOUDLY from having just discovered this (awesome!) thread- thereby losing your quiet time to play (and avoid the housework!) while he was still asleep .
*can you tell that just now happened!?*
*ps . I too will visit this thread when I need a laugh boost and dose of "have more fun-be less serious with the game" .
You're transplanting rosebushes in the sideyard and wonder to yourself, "Is my gardening skill high enough for these?" The same thought occurs when you're moving your houseplants from one pot to another.
You eat an awesome stew for energy less than 10 game minutes before a new day...
You accidentally shuck ALL (an entire stack) of an herb vice just one to get the two seeds you need...
You drop 1/2 a stack of allspice to move it to another location in another bag and because you aren't paying attention to your energy level you die, so you squish as many grapes as quickly as you can to try to get back to the spot to pick them up...you return to the spot of your death, just as someone else is making their way to that same location (probably trying to retrieve that large stack of allspice on the ground)...[and yes, was able to retrieve my allspice...but felt a bit bad 'beating out' the other player, though I'm sure they figured it out when they saw my tombstone]
You've learned all there is to learn in the Unlearning skill tree and then decide to go after the Confounder of Logic badge, only to discover that you have to unlearn Unlearning I, and now have to wait while you unlearn ALL the unlearning skills.
You are playing a word game with people who don't play Glitch and your definition of the word "quoin" is "something that floats in midair and can give you either energy, mood, favor, currants, or xp points".
Someone RKs you, but you don't have an RK on you to return the favor, so you give the kind glitch a random amount of a random food or drink in the hopes that it will equal out.
... when you ignore your friend's message for ages because you are busy collecting something or other and didn't notice. This has happened at least four times to me and I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all my friends in advance as it's bound to happen again.
... when your pal invites you to a Game of Crowns session and you press the button and promptly crash, can't get back in game again and they think that you don't want to know them or they smell or something.
when someone asks if you want a gift and you say sure hoping its a emblem or music box that you can donate then they give you something an it turns out to be like 1 bean or 1 wheat and you cant help but sending it back to them and saying look i'm not a person who needs one of everything so thanks but i need to go! then walking alittle further just to realize that, that person is trying to give you all that crap back!
It's near a new day, you have 100 energy left and you walk by your Icons, thinking they won't bless you, and 5 of them give you energy, refilling you and the new day hits in a minute.
You eat some food and then just as you're leaving your house, you get "The Icon of Giant tried to bestow energy upon you, but you didn't need any." Or it's a new day and they try to give you energy then.
Thanks all for this great thread, I've been crying so much laughing I don't know how I reached the end!
Most of these situations sound horribly familiar!
In RL: You pause at the end of the street waiting for the signpost to teleport you to the next.
In Glitch: You stand on the train and are so busy cooking / repairing / meditating you don't realise there is someone else on the train. Just as you start typing 'hello' they reach their stop and vanish. How unsociable am I ?
... you start up Glitch one Friday morning, and when you finally log off and check the time you realize that it's 11 pm on Sunday (and you have an 80 problem assignment due the next day).
Then, when you contemplate your teacher's reaction should you tell her you'd spent the last three days donating to shrines and chasing chickens and butterflies and that you might be addicted to No-No Powder.
when you are a happy owner of door drink and decided to make, at first, one door, then you do not like the place you've got in and you come back and make another door near the first one. And then you just teleport between them every time you try to enter.
@Kronos: that happened to me but totally in reverse!! bahahaha
I was talking to another glitch who lives in the same area as i am and ask him the easiest way i can get to a place. I was answered by another glitch who zooms in through the map saying, 'It's in Uralia. You can type it in your map's search box.' Only the place i was asking is a city in RL.
You don't NEED Unlearning because you don't want to Unlearn anything, but you learn it anyways so you can unlearn it and relearn it just to keep the rock from idling around, leaning from side to side, just waitiing, waiting for something to do...
you're exaltantly telling your boyfriend on the mobile about teleportation and all the nicest things in glitch like piggy nibbling, chicken squizzing and tree petting (replacing the correct translation of them by transliterated words with russian flections) and tadam! you noticed big eyes of the co-passangers in the bus because they think you're better be in the hospital or something.
.........Tonight: That Awkward Moment When... you see a screen capture someone has posted depicting an item's Info screen open, and you try to click the "x" to close the Info page. And then you're like "fail" muttering to yourself and then 2 minutes later open the same picture to look at it more closely and do the same thing again.
you see a dead tree and after clearing, you dig instead of tend (because you are curious as to what that does), not realizing that it results in a patch of dirt, and you can't plant seasoned beans there anymore.
...when you see a sleeping dev, wearing a unicorn hat, so you decide to fill their pockets with apples, so you make a ton of apples, and when you try to give them, discover their pockets are already full... so really, you just filled your own pockets with apples instead.
