Do Thai's think we are as dumb as we think they are?

Recommended Posts

OK, it's not about all Thai's but....dare I say a lot of Thai's.  I started thinking about it after something happened that may have been intended as a joke.  I have rain guages at my wife's orchards and at our house.  Over in Phetchabun the furthest from the house, I went Tuesday to check as I do each day and lo and behold there is 20mm in the glass.   But it hadn't rained overnight.....well not in the village.  On closer inspection I  see the water is greenish....not clear.  The same colour green as the water in the barrel that collects water from the sala roof a few metres away.  So I came to the conclusion one of the corn huskers (???) working just over the hill had been over for a visit.  The bottom line is, did some Thai think I  was so stupid I would fall for it? I may not be a member of the Einstein family but I am not dumb enough to fall for that.

Run a live wire into the base of said glass. When this Thai pours water in again, then ....... BOOM! he'she is dead and can no longer mess with your guage 🙂       OR

You live in Thailand.

 

Can you read thai? If no you are illiterate.

Can you understand Thai? If no you are deaf? 

Can you speak Thai? If no you are a mute person. 

Can you write thai?

 

An illiterate, mute, deaf person will have problems in Thailand. Your knowledge will be very small. 

 

Same if a Thai go to live England and lazy to learn how to read signs, speak to people, listen to the news.

Everyone will think he the idiot.

How can he live?

Can't argue with anything you say Yinn (and I plead guilty to all charges), but the OP was talking about people trying to fool him by interfering with his rain guages - and thinking he was stupid enough not to notice.

Damn!  I thought I would stir up far more controversy than I have.  I will have to give far more thought to my next potentially controversial post......but not now.  It's way to early in the morning and I have only taken my first sip of expresso coffee.  ☕ Hmmm!

Being 19 years here I acquired a lot of experiences. 

 

Nevertheless there are many things I still don't understand why/the way how, things are done here. 

I consider it as stupid. 

 

My wife since 19 years, is a good Thai person, she tell me not to worry about it, as she understand my opinion. 

 

She says : " Despite being 19 years together, many times I  not understand why/the way how you do things here, I consider it as stupid".
