    You know you've been coding too long when...

    ...you leave a note for your wife, and comment out the apostrophes.

    ...you explain to your nephew how to ride a bike using if then statements. "If you lean too far the right, you will fall. If you lean too far to the left you will fall. Else, you'll be ok."

    Feel free to add on...

    Not as clever as the other contributions but, unfortunately, true:

    ...When you wake up dreaming about a small, "nested" JavaScript function that, when downloaded to the client and executed, would "unfold" an entire webpage without transmitting any other data - and then you try to remember how it worked over your first cup of coffee...

    When... (and I really did this once)

    you're sitting in ceramics class, making an ant, and you make the perfect leg. It took forever and you have to make 5 more. Instead you try to copy+paste. (I actually said to myself "copy - paste"!).

    you won't need that backup because that query won't work in MySQL.

    you are given clean code to work with you give thanks to "HREF", the HTML god.

    you remember peoples names by creating a XML document in your head:

    Code:
    <face name="helga">
    <hair>brown</hair>
    <nose>broken</nose>
    <teeth>missing</teeth>
    </face>
    your girlfriend comes over to try and see if your still alive. ( sorry, Lil... )

    All of the movie computers are really fake, it's funny. Like in Hackers, they used stylish Macs to crack into servers, each of which had a 3D interface and was really just made up of a bunch of incomprehensible text flying around in three dimensions.
