You know you've been in India too long when...

You are sitting in a restaurant with your friend (let's name him Colin for the sake of arguement) and he's just finishing a strawberry milkshake, which the waiters had forgotten and brought at the end of the meal. You ask him if it was worth it (meaning the wait), and he replies, "It was okay, but it was a bit expensive!"

I am not exactly sure what was more worrying - the fact that he now regards a 56p milkshake as being expensive or the fact I could see his point and didn't see how ridiculous that comment was for several hours!

It's kinda different here, for sure.
