How cool is it to have exactly x,000 mi or negative miles or zero?

In one airline, after years of use (and not just some enrollment bonus or no activity except for a survey or offer), I have exactly x,000 mi. Makes me want to not fly that airline in order to preserve the number!

While burning miles, I once got to as low as 699 mi.

In another US airline, I got to -2,xxx miles! ...and it happened without me requesting anything special. I just redeem an award and bought some magazines on the same day. Not to worry, airline bean counter, as the negative balance no longer exists due to continued flying.

I'm 1,000 on one airline (enrollment bonus) and 93 miles on another after burning miles.

Do you also stop driving when the odometer rolls over to x0,000?

Probably start reversing from that point on.

OK Mr. Monk, I thought you were afraid of flying...
