...you keep tying ls in other programs that don't need it.

...you keep using the Y key when talking on an IM program after you've been playing Counter-Strike.

...you use a Windows box and you keep forgetting that xkill does not work.

Just a little offtopic, but I've actually done this too:
* typing 'cw' and ':wq' in notepad.
* Selecting text, and press the middle mouse button to paste it somewhere else in the windows explorer
