    I'm pretty sure she doesn't love you.....

    This email from Stickman.....
    Pretty decent email then at the end he says his wife calls him Frank instead of his real name Fred because she can't pronounce Fred!

    Maybe I am too sensitive or have high standards but I'd expect my wife to be able to pronounce my real name 555


    Pronunciation struggles.

    In this week’s column you talked about Thais having difficulty with some words in English. You said ’roundabout’ was difficult for Thais. I would add that Thais have difficulty with words that have two hard consonants in a row, like ‘star’ or ‘spaghetti’. Thais will usually say “s-tar” or “sa-pa-ghetti”. But, you should also point out that there are many Thai words that we farang cannot pronounce. My wife will say a Thai word, and I will (try to) say that word. My pronunciation of the Thai word sounded to me just like what my wife said. My wife will say “no” and say the word again. And, again my attempt will not be right according to her. I could not hear any difference. My name is “Fred”. My wife and most Thais will call me “Frank” thinking they said my name correctly

    Number one reason I didn't get involved with a Thai girl again.

    Thais have trouble with my name. They call me Ass


    Just couldn't have a partner calling me Ass.....555

    Haha
    I think it's cute when they call someone a name they decided worked for them.

    My wife's best friend had a BF from Norway, they couldn't pronounce it so settled on Yoghurt 555

    But sorry, I'd be a bit miffed if my wife decided to call me Pat instead of learning to say Paul 555
    I'm a stickler

    By the way, it works the other way.
    Whenever my wife speaks about one of her brothers, she feels the need to add a description.
    Yes, their names sound familiar but I tell her after 14 years, I know all her brothers by name
    Just took me about 8 years 555

    We could expand this to signs your wife/partner doesn't love you but it might scrape too many raw nerve ends ...

    I don't think mispronunciation of your name by a TG would make the top 10 ...555!

    I just have always found it strange that TG's use these pet names towards farangs that they don't use toward their Thai partners.

    Just has always seemed odd to me...

    What about when Thais rock up and don't introduce their Thai partner - I find this ill-mannered.

    No-one enters my baan without being introduced to me - they can learn.
    Or without saying Hello and Goodbye.

    The common " L & R" juxtaposition.
    But they can learn this too - no-one in my extended family calls me "Bally".

    Very true......So many times you are just standing there with some person no one introduced you to.
    Not just in your house......Which is obviously much more ill-mannered since it's your house!

    I don't understand why he lets her call him Frank if his name is Fred. I correct my wife every time she pronounces something wrong. It's for her own good and I expect the same when I try to learn some Thai words.

    My name isn't that easy either but it seems Thais are better at it than Americans
