You’ve been here long enough when..

I’ve been here for quite a while now and I’m starting to notice things in my behaviour that I wouldn’t do or wouldn’t find normal when I first started here.

Example 1: When walking into the lab, I found it normal to see a man weighing a dead snake. Later, while I was busy doing my thing in the lab and turned around, I could see him dissecting the snake. I looked for a few seconds to see how he did it and then went back to my work.

Example 2: The tourists start to become annoying. Tourists stop for everything. If they see a bird, they stop. If they see a snake, they stop. If they see a branch that looks like a snake, they’ll stop. And it wouldn’t be that bad if they’d stop on the side of the road, but 75% of the damn tourists stop in the middle of the road. Right where the rest of the people are doing 55 miles an hour. Real smart, asshole, park your car on the side of the road!

Example 3: Other colleagues that have worked here much longer than I’ve been here ask me what button to push on the vending machine to actually get a Cherry Coke instead of a Diet Coke. Cause the machine sometimes gives Diet Coke instead of Cherry Coke. Although that could also just be a sign that I drink too much Cherry Coke and know the machine too well.. 😛
