    When you wear a huge amulet on the outside of your shirt.
    When you get a big tiger tattooed on your chest to stop bullets.
    When you go to the 30 baht clinic for brain surgery.
    When you are sure you have just had a dream about the winning lottery number.
    When you seriously believe a change of government will solve all your problems.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    When you think smeg is just an obnoxious twat who should be gassed and forget that he should be pitied because he has a genuine mental health problem and should be gassed.

    When you own a Fortuner and think it's a great car.

    When you wear Camel Active and think shorts are acceptable attire for a business meeting.

    When you've had at least 3 cases of non specific urethritis.

    When you become a regular and valued member of the Thaivisa community.

    when you see gorgeous thai girls, probably bored, in the shopping areas
    picking their noses and inspecting the withdrawals, without caring who may
    be noticing.

    When you drive in the fast lane on the Bangkok Chonburi tollway, at 60kms per hour, have a 2 km traffic bank up behind you and enjoy it.

    -Curry is perfectly acceptable breakfast food as long as it has an egg on top.
    -Half your wardrobe is the colour yellow.
    -Hearing "Mai Mii" or "Mai Dai" for the 300th time in a day doesn't bother you.
    -You'd rather SMS someone than meeting them in person.
    -You can shame a group of whores in Patpong with one angry stare.
    -You regularly fumble for a ten baht coin despite twenty people waiting in line behind you.

    You've DEFINITELY been here too long if all white people look the same to you!

    -When you throw food scraps out the kitchen window, but sweep up all the leaves twice a day.
    -When you know which neighbour's dog stole one of your flipflops.
    -When you cannot tie shoelaces.
    -When you know your kid can be found eating something at one of the many neighbours homes.
    -When you have small kids and have never bought diapers.
    -When you can eat curry that's been sitting out all day and you don't get sick.
    -When the local shop runs a tab for you.
    -When you start arguing about lottery numbers.
    -When you drop a spoon, pick it up, wipe it off on your sleeve and continue eating.
    -When you shrug and borrow a neighbour's bike because somebody has taken yours.
    -When you add chilis to farang food.
    -When you go back to the home country, call shopclerks Nong or Pi, crouch and wave your hand if you have to pass between two people talking, throw toilet tissue in the bin and keep a bucket of water beside the loo, and wonder why everybody is in such a hurry.

    I can still recite my old phone number in thai, but one time on the phone to the aussie embassy got the answer phone, but was unable to leave the number in english, my office staff killed themselves laffing about it.

    ^ I did the same thing in Shanghai a couple of years ago in person.
    I could remember my mobile number (all eleven digits) in Chinese but had to think about the English.Ended up having to write it down.

    Why the egg?

    And for many of your other reasons, I have got the impression that you have lived upcountry?

    But why the egg? I never saw it as a necessary addition for a breakfast dish.
