    Yes Rigger, it sounds like you got lucky with a family that is orderly and has a good work ethic. I feel I was the same with my wife. She works hard to keep our domicile clean and that was taught her and her siblings by her mother. Her organizational skills are not that keen, but I attribute that to her upbringing as well.

    Overall, I am pleased with her work ethic when I compare it to so many others in Thailand. I still think how one is brought up translates to how organized they aremin adult life.

    Just to inform some who posted here, Thai is a Nationality. Not a race. There are only three recognized races and they are Caucasian, Mongolian and Negroid.

    I might even inquire as to what Tai/Thai is...? Outside of the omnipresence of the invented nationality.

    You're right. He's wrong.
    Race in an antiquated term since nobody can define it. Gross generalizations such as skin color is a meaningless distinction, as are all the other physical differences--shape of nose, hair texture, etc--among people.

    This moment of insight is brought to you courtesy of the TD Fund To Assist the Educationally Handicapped. Thank you for your support.

    Race, as a social construct, is a group of people who share similar and distinct physical characteristics.[1][2][3][4][5][6] First used to refer to speakers of a common language and then to denote national affiliations, by the 17th century race began to refer to physical (i.e. phenotypical) traits. The term was often used in a general biological taxonomic sense,[7] starting from the 19th century, to denote genetically differentiated human populations defined by phenotype.[8][9]

    Social conceptions and groupings of races vary over time, involving folk taxonomies[10] that define essential types of individuals based on perceived traits. Scientists consider biological essentialism obsolete,[11] and generally discourage racial explanations for collective differentiation in both physical and behavioral traits.[12][13][14][15][16]

    Even though there is a broad scientific agreement that essentialist and typological conceptualizations of race are untenable, scientists around the world continue to conceptualize race in widely differing ways, some of which have essentialist implications.[17] While some researchers sometimes use the concept of race to make distinctions among fuzzy sets of traits, others in the scientific community suggest that the idea of race often is used in a naive[12] or simplistic way,[18][page needed] and argue that, among humans, race has no taxonomic significance by pointing out that all living humans belong to the same species, Homo sapiens, and subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.[19][20]

    Since the second half of the 20th century, the associations of race with the ideologies and theories that grew out of the work of 19th-century anthropologists and physiologists has led to the use of the word race itself becoming problematic. Although still used in general contexts, race has often been replaced by other words which are less ambiguous and emotionally charged, such as populations, people(s), ethnic groups, or communities, depending on context.[7][21]

    Why do they never put the lids back on bottles and jars? They just balance them on top. I learned early on to never shake a sauce bottle in a Thai restaurant.

    On the subject of race, we are all pink on the inside, even people with big noses.

    YES, they drop it where they stand. They can not organize, they never clean a thing and they like to collect stuff. Before you know you live on a hill of garbage.

    Take a look in a fridge of a Thai. It does not matter which Thai. You will find plenty over date.

    Not about organizational skills...Pure apathy and laziness methinks.. let someone else clean up after me syndrome....Lots of people in this world are same same. Must admit most all Thai rellies or visitors have the trait bar MIL.
    Fucking annoying but zip I can do about it.

    Things in the kitchen, tools around the garden, pens and pencils... Say anything about it and lots of agreement. Next time, same again!
    YES! i like how when they finish with a tool they just throw it in the garden some place to rust. machete rake saw axe spade. ect
    they also leave all caps of bottles draws and doors ajar or slightly open. they do it with their own things
    they are just messy and disorganized.. its from childhood there is not discipline in this area thats all, a minority of people are not like that but its got to be fewer than 5 percent
