When you cram 64 slices of bread into a toaster
When you keep a tub full of boiling hot water in case of power shortage
When you never turn on any of the lights in your house because they waste electricity
When you empty any box before picking it up, so that it doesn't fill your house with its contents

That last one had me really laughing there, just imaging the timelord tech needed to make a box inside your house contain enough stuff to fill said house... brilliant!

During breakfast you start thinking of ways to automate your sandwich making process.
You keep looking around for inserters when on escalators.
The moment you grab a piece of paper at work and start making automation blueprints.

I tried to think of something clever, and now I REALLY want a logistics network support in my fridge and some bots to fetch me drink... But this isn't really a case of too much factorio, this is just inadequacy of the real life. Right?

... you take always the left entry, because it is faster.
... you search for the express belt on the sidewalk.
... install gun turrets at the door.
--- try to compress the shopping on the cash-belt.
... stand besides a track to jump into the locomotive, when it passes by.
... on street when the car with the same brand before you turns left, you need to turn right.
... when you search for a knife in the kitchen you don't turn on light, but search for the ALT-key.
... search for the (speed-)module-slots in your car.

You look up the recipe and expect to find where you put that cake in the fridge.

You tear down a wall and then rebuild it to save materials
You wash yourself with just a tiny trickle of boiling hot water instead of a stream of warm water
You don't leave your house until you acquire a machine gun (also works for "you live in America for too long when")
Your house has no doors and you just tear down and rebuild walls
You see 2 stacked boxes and think "Brilliant! Why didn't I think of this before?"

Whenever you have some trash to get rid of, you put everything in a box and shoot at it.

You know you're playing too much Factorio when you use your car to bulldoze rocks.
