    Question How to respond to "FARANG, FARANG!!"?

    What is something witty to say when people (usually kids) point at you and say "FARANG! FARANG!", while looking at you like you're an alien with three heads?

    I usually say "manang dek noy". Is there something more appropriate? The other day a young girl, probably 6 years old, came up to me and just stared at me saying "FARANG" over and over. What is the best way to respond?

    Honestly, I tend to point at them...<like a proper farang finger-point> and say 'Khon Thai, Khon Thai" and watch them stop and stare even harder.

    I'm not sure that would benefit their perception of foreigners

    AhA! A do-gooder looking out for his fellow crack-heads.

    In that case, slip the kid a twenty bahtsky and growl at him.

    I usually turn around and see what they're on about. It could be that I've left my phone laying on the table or something...other than that, I just give them a stupid look and ignore them.

    Pull down your shorts and start finger bashing your anus with your thumb.

    If any kids are like that around my place I would hit them where it really hurts - by not liking their Facebook posts

    I dont think being called farang is a derogatory term. If a Thai wants to insult you they will call you an animals name. Kwai is one of their favourites when describing big slow farangs who can be led by the nose.

    You'd need to heighten up a bit to pull that one off
