You know you are in Silicon Valley when ...

  • Employees who want to skip work for a day call in "rich" instead of "sick"
  • The doctors and lawyers are the lowest paid people in the community
  • The sign at the lunch cash register says: "Cash or pre-IPO stock options only"
  • You don't see anyone watching "Who wants to be a millionaire?" since nobody wants a reduction in their net worth
  • Space Available, once the largest employer in Silicon Valley (they had offices everywhere), has left town
  • San Francisco is referred to as "expansion space"
  • If you ask someone how many people work at their company, they ask you "what time is it?"
