    I was a real yeshiva guy. 14 years in yeshiva (high school inclusive), and over a decade living in the dorm. So, you could expect me to do pretty much all the stereotypical yeshiva guy things. (except smoke- I tried it a couple times, but I couldn’t tolerate it, luckily).

    Last night, I realized that I had texted my friend that I had “pounded a bag of baby spinach.”

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you “pound” a bag of baby spinach.

    How do you know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore?

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you see a lomdushe abbreviation (eidus shebatlah miktzaza, kim ley bederabba miney, etc) and you draw a blank.

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you buy shoes because they’re comfortable, and not because the tips are more square-edged than the guy sitting next to you.

    When you stop writing your name and restrictions on food labels: “this belongs to me, please ask permission before taking unless your mammesh hungry or thirsty “

    When you stop writing your name and restrictions on seforim : “this belongs to me, please ask permission unless you mammesh can’t find your gemara and you’re late to shiur and your rebbe is mad at you cause you always come late, then and only then can you take the gemara without permission but please return it to it’s makom kevua when your done.”

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you are not embarrassed to be seen learning from an artscroll.

    when you can no longer think of 100 uses for a wire hanger……

    when the thought of having Cholent on Thursday night, Friday afternoon, Friday night, Shabos day, Motzai Shabos and Sunday makes you feel sick…..

    when you stop looking at your feet as you dance at a chasuna….

    when you start learning R’ Boruch Ber, R’ Shimon, R’ Naftoli etc. to get a better understanding of the Gemara and not the other way round…..

    when you no longer care how wide the ribbon on your hat is…..

    When you just sit and WATCH all the yeshiva guys dance, spin, do shtick and jump upside down and you think to yourself, “I remember when I used to be able to do that.”

    Now all you do is get out of breath just WATCHING them do it!!!

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you don’t GOBBLE down your food like a ravenous wolf (because you’re starving and/or because you want to eat it before another bachur grabs half of it!)

    You know you’re not a yeshiva guy anymore when you start to respect your parents’ opinions on things, NOT just because of the mitzva of kibud av v’aym, but because you actually realize that their opinions just MIGHT be right!

    Not to get off the subject of this thread, BUT…

    thinking that “the govt in Israel is the worst thing…” is A)not related to being, or not being, a yeshiva guy, and B)is not the dumbest thing to believe. Eretz Yisrael IS the greatest place on earth, and every Jew should, at LEAST, aspire to live there, BUT the government in Israel IS the pits!

    That’s a stupid thing to say. Nobody is sponging off the community in America. The only people who contribute are those who value what they are doing.

    Pathetic.

    -when your nose gets too sensitive to use paper towels to blow your nose.

    -When you find yourself in the outer dancing circle by weddings more often than the inner ones and you’re happier that way!

    -you can listen to a shiur and not fall asleep in middle.

    -you start reading the nutrition facts on food packages.

    i think you are not a yeshiva guy anymore (or perhaps never was a legitimate one) when you eat cholov yisroel, kemach yoshon etc at home but will go into baskin robbins for an ice cream.

    Yungerman1 I’m just a guy who tries to earn an honest buck and thinks doing so is more honorable than living off the communal dole. As to my pedigree, there is ample information about me in this site’s archives. Do a search and learn.

    Gevald! Lichoirah, I’ve never been Yeshivish! I wore colored shirts during my Bochurish Yuhrin, never ate Thursday night chulent until a couple years ago (I’m out of Yeshiva for Kimat 10 years).

    The difference between a yeshiva guy and ‘baalabayis’ is…

    Yeshiva guys eat chulent Thursday night, Friday/Shabbas night, Shabbas lunch.

    A ‘baalabayis’ eats chulent Shabbas lunch, Sunday night, Monday night, Tuesday night – ’till it’s all gone!
