You know you've lived in London too long when...


Saw this on metblogs.com, some of it's frighteningly true.

http://london.metblogs.com/archives/2005/03/you_know_youve.phtml

I'll try a few more...

1. You snigger at the price when you buy a round whilst visiting mates in other cities.

2. Your family tells you you have a Southern twang and you say "naah I've alwiss talked like this init"

5. Unsolicited friendliness from strangers is met with you looking directly at the floor, cos let’s face it they’re either going to ask you for money or tell you about God.

8. when you don’t think that 60% of Londoners wear ridiculous-looking footwear

11. The bloke sitting across from you on the tube seems strangely faymiliar, yet you wonder when did you start using words like "bloke" and why does "tube" seem like a normal word for public transport?

12. The word "cheers" seems to keep worming its way onto a formal letter.
