    They always bring you down to earth

    My wife had a doozy the other day.

    I have a nice Calvin Klein overcoat and it was fairly expensive
    Well, it is starting to get a tad roomy and I said to Ao that I hope if I lose more weight that I can get it tailored. Shame to spend that money and not be able to use it.

    She said, "yeah, last year you cannot button it"
    I replied "yes I could!"
    Her reply "yes, you can button it but look like Santa Claus" 555

    I don't think the word "tact" exists in the Thai language, they can be blunt to a fault.
    If delivered by a cute BG it is easy to not be offended by her sweet naivety....

    "If you weren't so fat ...you would be very good looking" delivered by a BG at the Moon bar with a smile and a nod to herself that she had just delivered a compliment.

    4 years ago leaving Phuket, I get a rub down by a young security lady at Phuket airport when I was leaving to come back home. She looked at my stomach and said "What you have in there" and laughed. I said I have "Big Baby Singha" at which she cracked up laughing. Her other officers were not impressed with he joking with me and gave her some really bad looks.

    Marc26, if you coat is that big perhaps Ao thinks it would make a good tent for a Thai family in her village 555

    The closest word to tact or politeness would, I guess, be krengjai which means to be considerate of the other person..more particularly the other persons self respect or image or 'face'

    At least she sees the potential in you, count your blessings...
    It's a special talent to give a compliment and insult someone at the same time.
