And you knew you had lived in the Middle East too long when...
... you thought that going home was just an expensive holiday.
... you needed a sweater when it was 300 celsius.
... your idea of housework was leaving a list for the maid.
... Friday meant brunch at the Ritz.
... you thought it was ok to park anywhere as along as your hazards were on.
... was the interval between the time it took for the light to turn green and for the guy behind you to lean on his horn.
