  3. If you serve yourself more food that you can devour at weddings and open buffets just because someone else will pay the bill.. this is proof that if you had the opportunity to eat public money, you would.
  4. If you usually skip people in queues, you will have the ability to climb on the shoulders of others to reach power.
  5. If you consider that what you collect from the street of money and other things is your right .. then you have signs of thief.
