1. You walk into a party and your friend says, “Hey, want a non-alcoholic beer?”
2. You get a job driving combine for a local farmer, and spend a significant amount of time thinking about the carbon emissions all this machinery must produce.
3. You mention “Jehovah’s witnesses handing out paraphernalia,” only to be laughed at and told that when modern folks use the term “paraphernalia” they are almost always referring to drugs.
4. People often ask you what religion you are, and when you say “Christian,” they give you a blank stare.
5. People swear and then apologize to you.
6. Someone asks your history teacher how the Amish came to be, and when he admits that he doesn’t know, you end up giving an impromptu “history of the Amish” speech in class.
8. While preparing a group presentation for class, one group member suggests that everyone come dressed in black shirts and denim “bottoms.”
9. You can tell when someone is comfortable being your friend, because they start making Mennonite jokes.
(And yes, it is true that all of the above have happened to me at least once.)
