You know you’re a TCK when…
TCK (Third-Culture Kid): one who grows up overseas because of their parents’ job.
Realizing that this is Chickpea’s future, along with any potential siblings, we found this particularly funny…
An agency asked their TCKs to complete the sentence, “You know you’re a TCK when…”
â€¢ your friends ask if you’re related to Britney Spears.
â€¢ your parents drive a 12-year-old Jeep and the nationals repeatedly ask if you are diplomats.
â€¢ you’ve been a translator since you were six.
â€¢ you feel immodest when your knees are showing.
â€¢ banana trees look boring and you get excited about maples.
â€¢ looking at your friend’s cute fuzzy rabbit, you wonder how it would taste fried on a stick.
â€¢ American mik tastes weird.
â€¢ you think a medium-sized American pizza is huge.
â€¢ the last place you want to go when you’re sick is to the hospital.
â€¢ your family attends a party in the US and during a game, when asked to list parasites, they wildly yell, “amoebas, hook worms, giardia, pin worms” – only to learn afterward that the game had asked for Paris sites.
