You Know You’ve Been In Finland Too Long, When…

You meticulously manage your plastic bag collection.

You don’t think twice about putting wet dishes in the cupboard to dry.

Silence is fun.

Your coffee consumption exceeds 8 cups a day.

You pass a grocery store and think: “Wow, it’s open!”

Your native language has seriously deteriorated. Now you “eat medicine”, “open the television”, and “close the lights off”.

You associate pea soup with Thursday.

Your notion of street life is reduced to hanging out in front of the railway station on Friday nights.

After a presentation, you finally stop asking “Are there any questions?”

Hugging is reserved for sexual foreplay.

You no longer look at a track suit as casual wear, but consider it acceptable for formal occasions. Neither do you see a problem wearing white socks with loafers.

You accept alcohol as food.

You no longer eat mashed potatoes – you eat smashed potatoes.

You understand why the Finnish language has no future tense.

You know that “one” beer means “let’s get pissed.”

When a stranger smiles at you, you assume he is drunk, insane, or American.

You’ve become lactose intolerant.

You know how to prepare herring 105 different ways.
