Couldn't agree more. If I couldn't find the appropriate bulb, especially in HomePro or Global House, I'd be too embarrassed to ask. I can't recall ever having seen a bulb, tube package, without English writing. I'm wondering how the OP found his way to & from the shop.

My guide dog knows the way.

When this sort of thing happens to me….

 

I usually throw sound financial management to the wind and divide the 17 (or even 20 or 25) Baht equally among all the staff. That way everyone can enjoy a generous cash bonus in recognition of a job well done. Sure, it's a shocking extravagance...but every once in a while it's good to 'live large'.

 

It's worth it knowing they will forever remember you as a truly jai dee farang....and you'll never have to worry about getting the wrong light bulb....ever again.

dude you expect homepro to train and educate 437,000 employees at every store ? 

I doubt each store has that many employee's.

I wish I had taken a photo of it.

I was only in the house five minutes fitting the blue-tinted tube, then going back to HomePro to change it. It was exchanged for a Philips tube.

I remember on the carton it had a short name ending I think in 'Pro'? Not Go-Pro, but something along those lines.

The staff member was reading the small stuck-on Thai label on the carton, so I assume it must have been imported and not Thai made. There was was no English on it apart from the name and '10w'. I didn't notice if there was some other language - like perhaps Chinese.

 

I looked at the tube itself and apart from the manufacturer's name and '10w', there was nothing at all about the colour.
