    When one's wife is walking over you wearing nothing but German jackboots and a spiked dog-collar you have to obey. Or severe disciplinary actions may follow.

    The point is Bob as usually you do a thread is posted for a bit of light hearted fun,and you come in as your usual obnoxious belligerent fucker you are.

    and start sounding like an old isaan yai, of before before before, get a grip of yourself and lighten up before you have stroke.

    Throughout your 'Westmonster' thread it is very clear that you quote and link to things you do not understand, as I helped you demonstrate last week.

    Do you even read the things you quote and link to? Where is bob's 'obnoxious belligerence' on that thread?

    Every place is different. Most, if not all of Lumpini Park, in Bangkok comes to a halt.


    Most, if not all of the BTS stations stop. Not the trains, not the egressing of trains, but, if at the station, movement stops and conversations are paused.


    Central Bangkok isn't Isaan ... probably different up that neck of the woods.
    Do the Schools not observe it?

    Something to bear in mind i suppose.
    That seems a bit wacky but, at our place, full of Thais, maybe a dozen or so at anyone time, no woman's knickers/bras etc are 'hung high to dry', nor is hiding the girl's knickers under her pillow allowed ... been in trouble for that on a few occasions.
    Apparently it's Ok for the men's stuff, but not the ladies ... go figure.

    None of the Thai's here wear those Amulets, so it's not a 'scared endowments and loss of powers bla bla' ... just that it's deemed inappropriate for an image of Buddha to (potentially) come in contact with knickers ... no matter how sweet smelling they are ...

    The niece hung her knickers high once and was chastised by her parents.

    ---

    ME? ... I just do what the Thai's do ... and I can guarantee that I have zero aspiration to be Thai or aspire to Thainess ... Fuck that.


    Who do I wai?

    My gf's parents, once, when we first enter the Farm.

    A social peer or higher ... but I tend to pause a little there and wait to be waied first.

    Never children. Someone here wrote on this thread that he returns most/every wai, even from kids ... I don't. I acknowledge it, but not return.
    Every kid/young adult in our household wais me most times they they leave for / return from school/university.
    The Farm Father, the eldest Thai at the Farm, maybe 60ish at a guess is old School. He's ingrained it in them.

    I observe other Thais and see who they wai.

    My Cardiologist, I waied when I met him. Then he offered his handshake.
    Last trip, I had a DVT (deep vein thrombosis), was in serious medical trouble, one of the best cardiologists in our area, spoke excellent English.
    He was a lecturer most times at the Thai Navy hospital, but took time, once a week to treat patients in a provincial hospital.
    Jai Dee and all that.

    My fee to see him ... about BHT 150 from memory. He gave the same price as a Thai. Who knows why ... saved me thousands!


    As for waing the monks, we might go to a temple once a month, but the issue rarely arises, so I can't remember the last time I waied a Monk ... must be years.


    Not trying to influence you ... just recanting what is acceptable round these parts.

    Yep, lets also not forget the head bob thing they do when doing something suicidal on a motorbike, like pulling out in front of you causing you to slam on your brakes and have a fucking panic attack.

    Just bob your head down & up again.

    It makes it ok.

    When I came to LOS I was really enthusiastic about practicing how to wai. But I found that since it's really not about saying hello, goodbye or thank you it hindered communication rather than enhanced it. Also, waiing seems to have a a religious connotation and promotes the differences between people as well. Since I'm not Buddhist I felt this aspect was intrusive. So I stopped waiing and now say 'Namaste' along with a bow like they do in India and Nepal. It looks very similar to a wai but I use it like I would in India, along with hello and goodbye and I don't differentiate who gets bowed to or not. I expected a lot of confusion with this behavior but instead I found even strangers pick up my meaning immediately and will say "Namaste!" back to me as often as not. It showed me how Thais are really very tolerant of other religions. In my case, it's Hinduism.
