My main in WoW hit 79 yesterday. Does that count for something? And, when I finished a Certain Quest Line in Dragonblight, I really hated that my main was Forsaken. I mean, they did make it a little better with subsequent 'quests' (if you can call them that), but I still wanted to smash things. Preferably demonic and undead things.
But my WoW-ness sure made today's Looking for Group hysterically funny. http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/207
Of course, in the games (ANY game that has such quests) they tell you all the steps piece-meal, not all as one run-on sentence. That way, you are in the middle or at the end before you realize just how messed up that really was.
My two 'new' pairs of pants finally got hemmed (I am wearing one pair right now, in fact)... it only took about three months... maybe more.
