14 tendencies people pick up when they move to the 'burbs

People's routines and rituals change when they move from Soweto to Sandton or from Gugulethu to Goodwood.

Presenter Eusebius McKaiser asked upwardly mobile listeners about the "tendencies" they've adopted after moving and assimilating into suburban life.

Listeners shared some of the "larney" habits they've picked up since moving from the location to leafy suburbia:

1. only eating organic food
2. shopping exclusively at Woolies
3. using hand sanitizer or wipes
4. drinking bottled sparkling water
5. a sudden lactose intolerance
6. drinking chai latte over regular coffee (e.g. 'Ricoffy')
7. joining the banting fad or paleo diet
8. referring to the toilet as the "rest room" or other euphemisms
9. a new found preference for golf and gym
10. drinking only filter coffee or Nespresso capsules
11. using a knife and fork
12. an obsession with sushi (using chopsticks, of course)
13. taking your child's 'nanny' everywhere
14. doing away with delicacies such as pap or sour milk
