    Do Asian women always have the volume too high ?

    Every freaking time i walk in, the TV is just too fucking loud. And I cant say anything about it anymore or she will bitch me out. Fuck. I usually dial it down 10%

    I know they have a good sense of smell. Just wondering about the ears.

    Turn the volume up on your CCTV Srivilled and you will concur...

    Yes, they are far too loud and the volume is far too high only when its Thai people and Thai media.

    Many Thais do not enjoy any type of food that doesn't cause there nose and eyes to run profusely. Similarly, to appreciate music they need their ears to bleed.

    Just the opposite with my better half. Very low volume but she is an exception as both male and female Thais over do the volume.

    @backspin - be thankful you don't have neighbors singing karaoke every weekend. Heh.

    Re: the noise - learn to live with it. Talk about it - if that doesn't work, then buy noise-cancelling headphones & hole up in your man cave.

    I don't turn the volume high, but I've learned to live with the background noise, whether it's karaoke, roosters, tweeting birds, children playing, church bells or the Muslim call to prayer at 5 am. It is what it is.

    I'm with Norton on this one. However while my wife keeps the volume low she does tend to speak very loud. I have said, "you should get a hearing test". She then yelled and said "I have no problem hearing, you have an issue listening". Of course I said "Well that's because you talk to damn loud"

    The missus likes the tv and computer streams on louder than my normal settings, it must be said.

    Likes low-level ambient background noise, music, tv on during daytime and night also. Silence is not golden.

    It's not a big problem. I just thought it is kinda strange considering she's soft spoken. I said something a couple times and just assumed maybe she'd lower her default volume a bit after my input. But now I just know that this is how it's going to be. I just walk in and turn it down a bit. She doesn't have a problem with that.

    Haha. I politely said something about getting a hearing test too one time. And she got even more pissed. I wasn't joking. I've been working in industry for a long time. My ears have to be more damaged than hers. Yet she's the one cranking the volume.

    Do Asian women always have the volume too high ?-boombus2-jpg

    Last weekend there was a wedding dinner in the village. This Boom Bus was the sound system. I didn't stay for dinner.
    I live about 3km from the party and could hear it clearly when I got home.

    For most of us Thai is not a particularly mellifluous language. Added to that, many farang tend to have relationships with those who have worked in an environment where loud music was a constant.

    Finally, being brought up in Thailand's crowded cities can often mean that high volume becomes a part of life.

    Whilst we of course cannot change anything about our partner's language, we can remove the other two factors simply through our choice of partner.

    I have always thought that the devices in Thailand are not equipped with the volume control. Same at the a/c, they do not have temperature adjustment, fixed on 18 deg C...

    Same same but different after decades of aircraft landing on the roof of my house, arresting gear retracting, elevators gears constantly in motion ... you learns to tune noise out.

    Exactly, why my wife says I never listen. I tune noise out. I seem to have this noise canceling feature that after a certain decibel is reached I see her lips moving but have no idea what she is saying...

    Can only speak for my missus, but yes. Living room tv is far too loud, but that room is more her domain than mine. But for sanity a while ago we agreed a new house rule, if you want to talk to me in the living room, the tv gets muted first.

    Exactly. I lived opposite a cathedral once. For the first few weeks the noise from the bells was a bit annoying but I never really heard them after a while. After six months, what bells?

    I often wake early a.m. to the sound of hysterical women, give a yell, she turns the soap down, I go back to sleep; nothing changes, get used to it.

    Does she cook and clean and serve other needs? - right then, accept it.

    Sybil wins this thread. You can't argue with "mellifluous".

    Good to see the romance hasn't gone.
