    Funny cross cultural mix ups.

    Thought it would be nice to share some of those humorous situations you have come across with you TG either in LOS or at Home.

    My 2 children live with me. When Dao comes to Australia for the 1st time. She has instant acceptance with my kids. I did not expect this at all. My daughter 18 brings her boyfriend home for dinner.

    After he leaves Dao drags my Daughter off to the bedroom and asks way too many questions about this guy. How much money he earns etc. I will talk to your father for you etc. My daughter blows up after a while and comes to me and says “Dao thinks I want to marry him, I only met him 5 months ago."

    I will assume this is the correct of the two threads ... That is too funny, and I can so relate to that having a very "western" daughter myself.

    Correct thread mods please delete one with Typo. My daughter also said to me" I don't think the drug dogs at the airport had done a good job" We laugh about it now but Dao did ask why your children not talk low to you???

    Last Songram I committed the ultimate sin. I was having that much fun, I forgot were I am, I touched a Monk on the head. I was pulled aside and chastise by everyone. The monk(he was apart of the wedding proceedings) later come up to me and said "Don't worry to much I see your heart. Gave me his phone number in case i have any issues. BTW do not tell the family I can speak English"

    More a mix-up by a thick headed farang with a guilty conscience….

    Very early days with Mrs M - we take our first trip as a couple and go to Pattaya for a few days. I already think this girl is wonderful, perfect even.....the disillusioned monger in me says "yeah, perhaps a little too perfect."

    First morning and we leave our hotel and walk to a nearby plastic-tables-and-chairs restaurant on Pattaya's 3rd Road. Mrs M studies the Thai-writing-only Menu and I look around the place and watch the passing traffic. I already know that Thais will not rush in making a decision of this magnitude. Time passes.

    There is a bar girl sitting nearby with her back to me. I find myself looking at the back of her head (No, I don't recognise her; you sick fcuks!).. She has beautifully kept hair and as I study it I remember Mrs M's complaints about her own hair (Like a horse!) Perhaps she should talk to this girl, I think, they are about the same age and she can't be spending a fortune on it and.....

    Suddenly Mrs M's voice breaks into my thoughts, "You want new girl?"

    Sprung bad! ....and with her limited English and my miniscule Thai language skills no-one will convince anyone of my innocence now. Instantly I calculate that I have been caught, tried and convicted by this angel-till-now.

    So here is, I think, the first crack in the armour, that damn insane Thai jealousy!! My total comprehension of the situation just seems to compound my guilt.

    She is staring directly at me now and seems to be holding the cutlery in a menacing fashion. She repeats her question slowly and deliberately "YOU WANT NEW GIRL"

    Not a glimmer of this jealous side previously but now here it is in full glory. Somewhere inside my head a siren sounds and a sign flashes the words "BUNNY BOILER!!!" The roadway is so close by.... should I make a run for it now?

    My mind races and I can feel myself blushing ( Could there be a surer sign of my guilt?) and I stumble over my words, making a feeble denial it seems, "No, no, I only want you."

    Mrs M looks at me, it seems with anger, confusion and something like annoyance flashing alternatively over her face. She stabs the menu with what was once a delicate index finger but now seems to me to be a talon with an inch long blade. "Do you want new gulls?"

    Light suddenly breaks into the dark place of my panic filled TG paranoia.

    "No thanks", I hear myself saying, " I not want noo-dles, do they have a Green curry?"

    Enjoy.

    Sorry to shy. Just not confident enough yet. Really scared to post most. Dao's words. Give it time.

    I think Mrs M could get the ball rolling by posting a few posts in Thai... that way the wives and girl friends will feel more comfortable, besides they will find a lot of common ground between themselves and will surely benefit from the collective knowledge this forum has to offer....

    In the early days and my thirst for knowledge all things Thai I asked Dao why do the monks have no hair and why do they all wear orange robes?
    She does not know with a hint of embarrassment.

    I came home one day years later she is jumping up and down like she has just solved the meaning of life or maybe the rubix cube. The Google world has opened up. It went like this.

    The monk yes long long long year ago use the blood of the Jack fruit tree to make the clothes orange.
    My Buddha young boy was prince yes. He cut off she hair so no one no be prince when he go to another country.

    Eureka moment. I wonder if Archimedes jumped up and down like this?

    I just hope the E-Bay world does not open up.
