You Know You'Re Becoming A Local When...

Recommended Posts

Yes OP, point number 2, I have to do this, (400m) when going to CM from my home…..Today a copper was riding towards me…….He smiled at me, obviously way too much hassle to flag me over.

Some more from the top of my head; I now no longer hold a door open for the next person….Say goodbye when leaving or slow down when monks are crossing the road! Oh…….and my eye's no longer fill-up when talking to someone with monster garlic breath.

You park your car in the middle of the street to chat with a friend or run into the store and don't seem to notice or care that you have backed up traffic for several blocks. And nobody blows their horn.

You drive with one wheel in the shoulder dirt because the oncoming drivers take their half of the road out of the middle.

You think nothing of drivers passing you on both sides of your car or having six cars turn right in front of you though you have the" right of way."

You immediately reply "mai me" to the checkout girls at big C even though you're really not sure if they asked you for a date or if you have a member card.

You take your cash register receipt to the mysterious big C premium desk hoping that you win a bag of fried seaweed....and get excited if you win a can of coke.

You think it's perfectly normal that you can buy two cases of beer at big C between 11 am and 2 pm but you cannot buy one case.

Some classics.

Worry when you start to have that puzzled totally oblivious look on your face after commiting multiple traffic offences that put other road users in danger and upon hearing the sound of somebody's horn.

You know you are becoming a local when

The footprints on the toilet seat are your own.

You know you are becoming a local when :

You start believing the Thais rather than the crap that is spouted out on here by know-it-alls.

Enough said !!

When you sleep on the table and eat on the floor.

I like this one best, and there were a few pretty funny ones.

good to see something going on here.

I dunno, how far gone local are you when you ask where to buy a toothbrush,

on your local TV forum?

You think riding a motorbike with an umbrella up is normal.

You mean it isn't?

You no longer own a checkbook.

You pull up to a gas station and are not surprised when somebody pumps your gas for you.

You think it is normal that a lady on a motorbike picks up your laundry at your home, cleans, folds and delivers it back to you in two days for less than the cost of a coffee at starbucks.

You think it's normal for people to walk around in hot as hell weather covered from head to toe in long sleeves, long pants, a floppy hat and a scarf over their face.

If something costs more than 100 baht you have to think about whether you need it.

you become immune to noise.

Oh isn't that the truth...and also, without missing a step, without slowing down at all....step out of your shoes at the doorway and never even think about it. ett
