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

Recommended Posts

When the soi dogs walk with you,instead of barking non stop.

When you start craving somtam at lunchtime.

When you ignore no u-turn signs

And when you get in the credit book at the local shop.

When the scousers(bin-dippers)make special detours to pick your empty's up.

You use toilet paper as a subsitute for tissue paper on the dinner table.

Err, what is tissue paper?

You wear your jacket back to front while riding your motorbike.

And a balaclava in 100 degree heat.

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

1. ...your wife's chilly dishes aren't spicey enough

2. ...you want to make sure the stinky fish is old and mature enough for bamboo soup.

3. ...you don't notice the temple tannoy at 140db (est) in the mornings. (I honestly think a retired sound guy with his equipment from the group Kiss lives at the temple)

4. ...a plastic NamTip bottle filled full of local moonshine is the norm.

5. ...you make sure to get ice for your beer.

6.......

When you finally realize that the true purpose of a road is to hang out, meet, greet & converse, and, why not, have a party - complete with awning, chairs, and, 'ell, a bandstand. Nevermind silliness like 'the road up is the road down' - it's a good place to set up shop, do a little business, broadcast propaganda at high volume, hold a protest of Facists for Pretense of Democracy, or, better yet, have a huge, week-long water-fight!

...you can't remember what "right of way" ever meant.

...you think of all the empty plastic bags on your lawn as normal yard ornaments.

...you touch an appliance without the usual shock, and it surprises you.

...a driver stops to let you cross the street and you don't know what to do.

...you're in a line of traffic, all running a red light, and you just go with the flow.

...you are blind to "No U-turn" signs.

..you ask why they used too few chili peppers in your tom-yum/grappow mu/phad bak boong, etc.

...washing dishes in hot water would seem strange.

...you're embarrassed by old male farang tourists in shorts and sandals with socks.

...you're jealous of the 70-year old farang with his knock-down-gorgeous twenty-something teerak.

...you haven't seen an ant in more than 24 hours and it worries you.

..you pick out the odd insect from your food and keep eating it. Better, you set it aside to eat later.

You can now get index finger behind your eyeball.

Okay, that's a new one. You'll have to explain it to me, the uninformed B)
