    5 baht or 2 baht?

    Today i was out and about town when the urge to use the restroom became of utter importance. I ran into the nearest bathroom and quickly discovered that the bum spray and/or tissue was non-existence. Not one to panic I asked the cleaning lady what to do and she pointed me to this.


    Because of the urgency of the situation I put in 5 baht, pressed the button and hurried to the bathroom.

    Victory! I had saved stains from showing in my underwear and was now ready for the clean-up.

    I soon discovered my 5 baht purchase was a female sanitary napkin...

    I think some nice illustrations could have helped your decision - but maybe the red button should have been the clue, the other one should have been brown!!!!!

    So what did you do then?

    Did you wipe your arse with a sanitary napkin or did you pull off one sock and use that instead?

    Did you then come out and take a photo of the vending machine or did you take it before you went for a poo.

    I was at the gym, then I ate a slab of pork and a slab of beef with mashed potatos and sald 169 baht

    Then came back to find this interesting thread.

    Do I have to explain my every post? Yes, errr OK!

    Hillbilly didn't know which one to buy cos he is illetterate, not clever like me and quirrel - anywho, if there had been a piccy of a **** and a bum he'd have pretty much got the idea - but, even easier than that a brown button for turd wipers and a red button (it's red already actually) for nether regions bleeding.

    If the OP was asking for a translation - top one says women's thingies, bottom one says tissues.

    I normally walk around saying 199 baht so at least we are different!

    Btw - you never answered my question if your toes were cold.

    This is why people wear socks with sandels, no? Remember the Boy Scout motto, "Be prepared!". I always assume socks and sandels are a sign that someone has had some training.

    Having been caught in a similar situation, I am always glad that most of Thailand has water available to wash it all away

    unlike England where the natives merely wipe it around to a thin veneer

    more poo vicar?

    Well I'm with Squirrel on this one, over here in 'Sceptics Central'

    This is a fit up.

    Who gets desperate for a toilet, politely asks a cleaner how he should clean his bum, buys a sanny-nap and then has the mental presence to take a photo of the vending machine.

    True story! And I was wearing sandals and no socks. Luckly, i was wearing some old boxer shorts...

    i took the photo after the fact. It showed me that no matter how long a 'falang' lives here in Thailand some days they/I really don't understand or have a clue what is going on!

    A lesson in humility perhaps!

    The world is a dangerous place. Kudos to hillbilly. He has left a warning along the trail for others who may pass by. No man is an island.

    btw, TV member Thomas Merton, where are you? Why aren't you posting here on TD?

    You were actually quite lucky HB.

    In it a lot of other places the 5 option would have been a tampon

    He could have plugged the hole for the interim though.
