Default Another Fun One: You know youve been in NZ too long when....

1. You end every sentance with "Aye"
2. You start using words like "awesome" and "heaps" as superlatives
3. You can get drunk on 1 bottle of Steinlager
4. You know what they are talking about when the weatherman says there is going to be a sou'westerly change...
5. You start shopping at Smiths City because Kmart and the Warehouse are soo downmarket

any other offers?

Sweets are Lollies
You go to out somewhere and don't bother putting shoes on the children, don't bother even brushing your own hair or looking in the mirror.
Ask for chips (when you want crisps).

Some more:-

1. ... you get excited when the All Blacks are winning.

2. ... you hesitate at a roundabout.

3. ... you eat beetroot on your burger.

4. ... you forget to stress when you know you've left the house door unlocked.

5. ... you actually enjoy eating NZ bacon and sausages.
