How is your Thai Wife responding to the Coronavirus?

Thinking has changed a lot over the last few weeks here.

 

As I was buying additional supplies in February she was saying 'this won't happen in Thailand'.

 

She's used to the situation now and is annoyed with people who aren't following the rules regarding 14 day quarantine, staying in, social distancing, etc.

I was starting to buy more than usual in January, although at the time I was in denial that this could escalate so quickly.

She's sad and staring through our glass front door.... I told her not to worry, or be sad - that I'll let her back inside when the 14 days are up....

Those of us with real life experience of having a Thai Wife will know that they switch effortlessly from being your lover to your mother via several different personas including accountant, virgin, ny

Same here, I bought a load of stuff just in case I need it, it will all be used in the end.

 

My main concern was that foreign foods which I eat every day might become scarce if things escalated and supply lines shut down like happened in China.

 

I originally thought this was unlikely but now I pretty much expect it to happen, it's just a matter of when.

My wife is taking it in her stride. She understands the need for social distancing and the hand washing protocols etc , but is a little bit anxious as I am , as we have a 17 year old on a student exchange in the US. We know she’s in good hands but for the both of us it’s difficult.

She focuses a lot on what is going on in Thailand and really only gets spots of the global big picture from the Thai news.

I've been married for about 4 days and 3 hours to my new wife, so it's sex non stop.

Guess there was no sex before marriage.  You got a holy one

You are lucky. My wife has started watching the daily sopies. In the previous 5 years she never turned the TV on during the day. I am beginning to worry.

There's your opportunity, go out and buy her the game 🙂

As usual, following the social norms, not really understanding the reasons behind them. Why I'm with this woman is beyond me, like we're opposites in oh so many ways. Probably a mother thing. Where I'm weak she's strong, were I'm strong she's weak, make of that what you will.

secured with undoable rubber bands

Haha thisssss^^^^

 

Let the world end, God, just show me the secret of unwrapping a Thai rubber band. (Yes I’ve YouTubed it, I need God Himself to show me how).

 

With regards to the Thai Wife (pfft to “captain anti-racist” up there) she doesn’t so much as hoard eggs due to coronavirus, however it seems normal for her to have no less than 6-8 cartons on hand in full rotation. She is an accountant and an extreme couponer and I’m a prepper gun-nut/survivalist anyway, on any normal year—she buys eggs I buy 5.56x45mm, we both do our gloriously cis-gender roles, (leftists can go lick a doorknob if so inclined 😂).

 

Stay healthy you old farts.

MIne works in a hospital lab.. Used to come home say do not touch me. straight to the bathroom shower donot touch me.  

Working at the hospitalshe is worried about what she is going to bring home from work or the BTS or the minivan.

 

Finally she has decided and I agreed that the best thing for her is to stay at the hospital there is sleeping area there.

She is probably driving them crazy with how I told her to dress. pants not skirt.

 

I have closed the school so nothing to do.  Doing a lot of make work projects.
