Wouldn’t You Like to Be a Checker, Too?

I’m a checker.

There. I’ve said it.

When I get on a plane, I check all the exits, count the seats to each and  make sure I know how to operate my mask and floatation devices. (You’re welcome, Flight Attendants. It’s me, the one who was paying attention.)

When I go to the movies, a show or concert, I note the exits.

I go to tons of general admission concerts and I am always near the front, but I would wager that there are never more than maybe 12 people between me an the exits.

I know where the fire extinguishers and defibrillators are every place I frequent. You can quiz me.

This may all sound a bit neurotic, admittedly, but it’s not borne out of fear or anxiety. I don’t worry about it or even think about it once I have made my visual rounds.

I enter, look around, file away my mental notes and enjoy the evening.

Any other checkers out there?
