You know you have been in chile too long when you.....

Post by zer0nz » Fri Dec 31, 2010 10:35 am

..are on the motorway in the fast lane sitting behind someone doing 80, and you are flashing your lights for them to move.....

found myself doing this today, i wouldn't do it to someone who was speeding already like the chileans do, but 80 in the fast lane? come on....

I have to say my driving style is getting terrible!, im scared if i go home ill get a ticket every day for something!

what other bad chilean habits have expats picked up?

Pissing on the walls of city buildings in broad daylight.

hahaha, now for us nzders and aussies, under the cover of darkness after a few beers, walking home from the pub because there are not enough taxis!

funny story tho, a friend in new zealand has a brazilian boy friend, when his visa for NZ expired they would not review it on the grounds he had a run in with the cops.... for pissing on a city building!

Driving down a one way road the wrong way backwards with your hazard lights on because doing it backwards just makes it legal!
