.....you can't put your car in the garage due to the bee boxes.

.....your "normal" friends cringe when you start a sentence with "My bees".

.....you are using your husband's wood shop more than he does.

.....you find yourself passing up plants at the nursery because they don't produce nectar for bees.

..... you can spot a hive tool from 50' away.
..... you can tell the diffence between a bee and a hornet, while they're in flight, with nothing more than a glance in that direction.
..... you can spot another's hive(s) while driving at highway speeds.
..... you read honey labels while shopping.

I like the story of Bix’s neighbor mowing his grass in a bee suit.  When you see that, you know you have a bee keeper around….

You buy a stethoscope to listen to your bees in Winter

The only woodwork that gets done in the wood shop is for your bees

Your sensitivity to bee venom increases so you increase your hives by half instead of double

You might be a redneck beekeeper if you use Pledge Furniture Polish instead of Lemon Grass Oil to attract swarms.

When every time you pass a prybar/scraper in a hardware store, you refer to it as a "hive tool"!

when ever a bee or wasp is around your coworkers or friends call them your buddies with a chuckle.  Every time they say this you would enjoy to give them one upside the head.

..you have to wash the honey out of the clothes basket because it was the most convenient thing in which to thaw out frames last night.

...you are surprised to find your mates don't have any spare bee boxes in their living rooms.

...you have ever had to clean wax off the walls.

...you are grateful for stings because they are a sign you have a strong hive, and you don't flinch when you are stung because it proves you are tough enough to be a beek.

...you eat honey without worrying about the cost.

...your mother has ever told you you took a lump of honeycomb and a couple of bees into show-and-tell at school when you were five.

You know your a beekeeper when you go feed bees because it's a nice day instead of watching the day long hype for the Superbowl.

I'm asking for a little help here.
I use this thread to add bee jokes to our local news paper and at the end I add in a notice when our club will meet and what events we are having.
If you can think of any more, please add them here. so far it has been working very well.
Remember it will be printed in a newspaper, so I can only use the clean ones.  grin

You and your family get the only free table (that all the other guests are avoiding) outside of the dairy queen because the previous guests spilt their coke and bees are all over the table.

You take your kids to Six Flags and they purposely pour a little coke from their straw onto the table to feed the bees.

You create a scene at the city park looking up in the 100 year old oak tree at a feral swarm.  All the other onlookers are asking what are we looking at?

The Bradford pear trees outside your office are blooming and you pause to listen to and watch the bees.

You check your swarm trap line every day on your way home from work.
