You wrote “…when you pull over to check what the noise from under the hood is.”
I would add to that…
AND – when you DO check under the hood, you actually have at least SOME idea what you’re looking at!November 10, 2011 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #1197501bein_hasdorimParticipant
When your jeans aren’t pleated. Your cap isn’t black,
your tzitzis find their way inside your jeans, and your hand motions
when learning consist of constantly twisting your wrist to see the time.
Or when you walk into any yeshiva beis medrash and instead of breaking out in a smile and feeling at home you check your exit route apprehensively.
Some are humorous but some are true.November 11, 2011 12:40 pm at 12:40 pm #1197502Shticky GuyParticipant

When you run out of white shirts over a three day yomtov and have to dig out the grey coffee-stained ones you wore in yeshiva.
When you develop taste in coffee instead of on top of an addiction.
When you learn about something called kitchen safety.
When you finally agree that Tosafos knew what they were talking about.
When you start referring to tosafos in plural. (Then you’re just pedantic :))November 12, 2011 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1197512

Jothar: I was always at a disadvantage in Yeshiva for not wearing glasses, because nebach I had to stir my coffee with my pen whereas had I worn glasses I could have stirred two cups simultaneously… ☺November 13, 2011 12:55 am at 12:55 am #1197514
Everyone talking about stirring coffee with their glasses is making me feel left out. In my yeshiva we always poured it from one cup to another instead. Guess the yeshiva had a different minhag.November 13, 2011 12:58 am at 12:58 am #1197515bein_hasdorimParticipant
When you find words like
“Al kol Ponim”
and “Fest,” as well as questions like “what’s the Matzav?”
have become extinct from your vocabulary.
Also when you start being makpid on what brand soap or shampoo you use.(or even notice it has a name other than “soap” or “Shampoo”)
When you won’t skip a a day or two (ok, week) of shaving just because you didn’t get around to it.
and Finally when you stop taking haircuts by your friend Getzel, and learn that Jewish barbers exist outside Yeshiva as well as Jewish prices.November 13, 2011 5:36 am at 5:36 am #1197516

Charlie Brown – my guess is that you are no longer a Yeshiva guy and you spent the past several hours washing all the Shabbos dishes and scrubbing the cholent pot… and then you had a few minutes to postNovember 13, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1197524
naaaah. I didn’t have enough bourbon or fermented plum juice to get me to do all that stuff. Besides, I have a dishwasher to do all that work…her name is Mrs. Charlie Brown.

– when you eat breakfast and lunch the day of chasuna, instead of “fasting” so you can make the most of the meal (nearly 20 years later, I still eat lightly the day of a chasuna or shul dinner)
– when being tired overtakes the desire to eat chulent Friday night
– when you ask young bochurim home during bein ha’zmanim, “What are you learning,” and then reminisce about what you learned, and when you learned it
– when you realize that the boys in yeshiva with whom you ate Shabbos lunch are now the shoel u’mashiv and magidei shiur, and you just have a regular job
– when you really “get” what people write in the haskomos of their seforim, that without their wives, the learning would not have been possible; when you understand when the rov says the rebbetzin has enabled him to do what he doesJuly 13, 2012 2:01 am at 2:01 am #1197536

@Toi- No, not RTK. yekke2 was right. the first three things JHF said are in every ?????.
You listen to any bochur talking and what do you hear? Complaints about food at the ?????! I’ve heard things from “the chicken was green” to “grateful the day after a chasunah because we get caterer’s leftovers.” I used to have some bochurim come to dinner regularly on Thursdays. Know what I served? Pancakes. Stacks and stacks of pancakes. With butter, syrup, veggie sausages — and no ketchup. Those were some happy boys going back to the dorms for some reason I don’t know. I could have served these guys burnt (kosher) dog food and they’d have lavished my cooking with praises!December 10, 2013 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1197547✡onegoal™Participant
