You know you have UAS when...
A fellow UUer posts a message asking about an online ukulele shop.
You open the post cause your familiar with the store but instead of responding and helping the guy out you go to the online store and buy another ukulele.

WARNING: KILLJOYS AND CYNICISM AHEAD (unless you like those kind of jokes)
... the money can be used to pay off your debt or put into savings/retirement, but you buy it anyway.
... you try to separate your needs from your wants, but another ukulele is listed as a need.
... you think your spouse is the problem.
... Haiti and Chile can wait.

You see a commercial for leasing an expensive car and think of how many ukuleles you could have if you could shell out that kind of dough each month.

Yes, it is wrong but all part of UAS.
This is a great thread. I'm LOLing on all of them.

You skip eating in general to fund the next one.

...and sleep on the couch until we can afford to buy food again. Gods love that man, I don't think I could put up with my crap.

Not really. i just means that you have a sense of humor (dark maybe but I loled as well).
I'm sure you weren't laughing at the situations in thoise two countries, you were LOLing at your situation b/c let's be honest we all could have donated more if we had wanted.

When you spouse says "buy one more uke and you sleep on the couch".
You immediately email MGM asking for advice.
MGM of course says, "buy the more expensive one".
And you do,

:agree: I vote for this one as the winner. I don't think I could send it somewhere else. I just say "I did it and I'm sorry..." then suffer for a few days. By the time the uke gets to the house he's already forgotten he was mad at me.

....you find yourself buying a soprano when you know you prefer concerts.

....you buy an acoustic/electric uke, but don't own an amp.

....you consider buying broken "project ukes" on eBay to save money.

....you spend as much time uke shopping as you do uke playing.

Wait a minute. I've done all of these....

When you can't decide between matte or gloss so you get both, and then realize you also need both matte and gloss with both amber AND pearl tuners.

...you excuse yourself from the dinner table repeatedly to check your status in a ukulele bidding war (also applies to checking the shipping status)

...you have a nasty bout of the flu and you still decide to sit at your computer and browse vintage ukes for hours at a time

...your friends have staged an intervention because your ukulele hobby has turned into a mad addiction

(all true, by the way)

LOLs awesome.

When the visit to a uke shop to "just check it out" ends up with you bringing it home...
... or another one that cost 5x more
... or both.

The shame.

Is it UAS when I spend the price of a new Beansprout banjo uke to have the old banjo uke I have owned since the '60s fixed up??

How about when I arrange to have a music instrument factory in Guangdong, China ship a ukulele to my hotel room in Shanghai while I am there on vacation next month??
