    Tomorrow Tomorrow

    Thought I have seen and heard it all living in this place we call LOS..Sometimes it just amazes me the things some people do and say and I am not talking about someone who lets say no fault of their own as maybe not finished school and lacks a certain level of education I am talking about people in Thailand who have respectable jobs who have had a very high standard of education with many years of studying in a university and then graduating in whatever field or career they choose to follow.

    I live in a village which is 50k from the nearest city so we not have homely comforts like shopping malls, cinemas, BigC ,Pizza, kfc etc ,Oh and VETS which is what my story is about. My dog as not been feeling to good for the last 2 days and as gone right of is food so I was a little worried so I thought maybe take him to see the local vet so of I went , It's a little office which is located in the Ampher office no one speaks any English what so ever but I speak pretty good Thai so we got there in the end and I was finally put onto the man who is the local vet in my village .

    So i told him what was the problem and then he checked out the dog, then for the next 5mins or so all I could get out of him was ..yodog is mai sa bai ..yes I know that.that is why I bring him to you for look ..he eat some it no good he say…Then he say i will have to come back tomorrow as he has left all is medicine at home he forget to bring it to work today..FFS ,

    I stay here 3 years now and to be honest with you i find myself just like the Thais telling friends tomorrow tomorrow when before I used to be a now and a today person.

    Sometimes tomorrow is acceptable and some times it is not and in this case tomorrow is just not a acceptable ..TIT Grrrrrrrrrrr

    Try Spain where they say "manana"
    It does'nt actually mean tomorrow.
    It means "not today"

    A true professional! I hope your dog was suitably impressed and survives the ordeal.
