    No, but I'll write it out for you in traditional style font so you can give it a go yourself...

    บอกแล้วไง ว่าเอาใจไม่เป็น

    FWIW; that phrase เอาใจไม่เป็น was made into a common colloquialism by thai rocker Sek Loso (เสก โลโซ) from this song;

    Why don't you stop being such a smart arse and stop remind us of how good your Thai is or you think it is, and help the guy already!

    Another smart arse.

    Fuck TD then eh! Google translate? Is that how you rely on your Thai? It's about as useful as a chocolate fireguard at times.

    Anyway it means
    "I told you, I don't know how to please" something along those lines.
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    If the O/P watched the video the meaning of the phrase เอาใจไม่เป็น can be sussed out..

    Talk about an เอาใจไม่เป็น moment! Sheesh, there's just no pleasin' you lot is there?

    Here; เอาใจไม่เป็น


    FWIW somtamslap: while the word ใจ is in the construct, เอาใจ is a compound word and the meaning does NOT have ใจ equaling heart/mind.

    Now I honestly don't see how that sticker would remotely relate to learning a language, but that's irreverent or possibly irrelevant isn't it?

    บอกแลวไง
    Rather than just a straightforward "I told you....", the "ไง" could indicate some impatience, so the sentence could possibly read as "Ive told you already, do I need to tell you again, how many times do I need to tell you, didnt you catch it the first time"

    ^ - เห็นด้วย
    I concur

    P/S; IF you guys knew how hard it was for me to stop typin' z's you'd give me a modicum of credit like Davis Knowlton did..

    I'm doin' the best I can, sans thai wife, g/f, significant other.

    BTW: I do have two Siamese cats but they don't speak.

    However they do understand more english than most thais..

    BaitongBoy; Wouldn't you like to know..

    I related this story before but will again;

    Many years ago brit friend of mine and I went to Nana Plaza, he fancied a deaf gurl, and reasoned with me that she'd be better seeing as she couldn't speak..

    He bar-fined her took here outta the bar and in like 20 minutes she was back.. I tried to call him, no answer.. The next day he calls me and said, it was the worst experience of his life.. He said it was like having sex with "Flipper" (the dolphin from the US series).

    Sorta like this;


    Okay, that's all I got..

    That's the ticket. I don't think this newbie needs a freebie, either. But I did ask another one to PM you. It's a love letter and it is so stupid...
