You get annoyed by things the local kids get up to – kicking a football against a wall, shouting rambunctiously etc

You tell people to “BE CAREFUL” when waiting to cross a road, because you’re convinced they’re going to die

You’re no longer too embarrassed to complain in a restaurant/shop

You increasingly sacrifice style for comfort

You get a bit panicked when people start jumping or pushing a bit at a gig

You tut at queue skippers, and let them know you’re not happy with them
