    What language do you ask your questions in? Do you realise that there's no direct equivalent of "yes" or "no" in Thai? It may surprise you to learn that foreign languages are not direct translations of English, indeed many foreigners were so unwise as to devise their pagan patois without any references to English at all!

    If you want languages that provide the kind of simplistic direct yes or no answers you require then stick to countries where romance or Germanic languages are the norm, you won't find many of them in SE Asia and Tai-Kedai is certainly not one of them. On the other hand you could get off your lazy arse and spend the required amount of time it takes to learn how positive and negative are expressed in the language of the poor bugger you're making a fool of yourself in front of.

    Such basic and reasoned foundations are beyond the comprehension of most.

    imagine ringing a Hotel and speaking Thai asking for a hotel room and they couldn't give a yes or No.

    The hotel. They would say "we have" or "we don't have". Not yes or no. Standard Thai repetition or negation of the verb is not the same thing as having words for yes and no.

    It's almost impossible to get a simple yes or no to that question out of a Brit.

    I could write a full chapter about the responses I received during my twelve years in Blighty.

    Tea as in drink, tea as in dinner, or tea as in a little something between lunch and dinner, or maybe dinner and tea? A cream tea, a high tea, or a chippy tea? Me, I just like a nice cuppa.

    One, stewed in an old teapot and served with milk and two sugars. Anything else is for foreigners, queers and lefties.

    Trusting that you're a little different and take a quality tea unlike your cultural brethren whom wouldn't recognize decent tea if it came up and tweeked 'em in the nose...

    Yes, good teas always have a proper nose, EH? Say steeped for a full five minutes. EG, Earl Grey has a nice citrus aroma.

    The big problem is that many Farang hang out with low class Thai's who have the intelligence of a fooking fart.

    Go ask an educated Bangkok Thai a question and you will receive a proper response.

    You Farang no fooking good EH.

    Indeed.

    One might almost think intellect is not really what your average farang truly values in a mate.

    Or even recognises.

    It's true innt Tax,

    The Farang living in Nakhon fookin Nowhere and dealing day in day out with fookin people with the education of a two year old will always encounter the severely fuking terminal stupidity of their type.

    On the other hand us City folk who mingle daily with the educated Thai know that educated Somchai is quite Ok.

    I many cases far superior the the fooking average fat gutted pissed up Farang who get around Thailand.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    they may not value intellect but many of the decrepit pot bellied florid faced wheezing old farang twats that wash up here seem to have no trouble at all, either by accident or design, in finding partners whose intellect and street smarts are way above their own abysmally low levels of judgement, intuition, comprehension and capability.
