The Funny Things She Says

Recommended Posts

Just to say thank you to Kandahar for the phone call today.

Not Thailand related but funny i thought

Many years ago sitting with the family watching a Charlie Chaplin movie in black and white

My sister who has many O levels A levels turns around half way through the movie and asks

Did they all walk like that in the olden days

I did put this in the CR forum on purpose. I thought that since many of us know each other, it would be easy to picture those different wives/girlfriends saying those things and imagining the men's reactions. But of course, are contributions are welcome. And there is no harm in someone else starting the same thread in the general forum. It would probably go over well nationwide. But this one, I would like to keep here. I'm sure it will fill up over the years, as these ladies just keep wowing us. I have already forgotten so many of my wife's classics. But there are more to come, I'm sure.

My Wife doesn't say a lot of funny things these days. I suppose its because she spent 10 years in the UK , and so we sort of speak the same language .

Her head does spin on its axis, sort of full 360 degrees when she's whispering sweet profanities at me, and thats kinda funny in its own way :whistling: ............... :D

I told her the prostitute and the noodle joke a while back. Now, every time she sees a hair on the sheets, she says, "Hey look. A noodle". Cracks me up every time.

I have two stories, one about my current wife (Thai) here in CR and one about me while on holiday here in Thailand about 8yrs ago.

My wife stored some of her clothes at her Mum's house while she was pregnant and she recently brought them home. While unpacking yesterday she held up a pair of white trousers and said 'Look I think a crocodile poo-poo'd on my clothes'.

Me - ' You didn't tell me your Mum has crocodiles now too?! Don't they eat the pigs?'

Her - 'Are you crazy, they don't eat the pigs, they're in the wardrobe'

Me (looking very confused and trying hard not to wet myself) - 'Your Mum has crocodiles in the wardrobe???!!!'

Her - 'Yes, many houses have crocodiles..........oh, not crocodiles, I mean cockroach'

While on holiday here with my ex-gf we were looking for a guesthouse in Hua Hin and we had tried to learn a few words of Thai during our stay. As we were on a budget (we were backpacking, sorry!) we needed somewhere cheap & cheerful but with our own shower (had had enough of shared bathrooms by then) but were having trouble finding one (I'll explain why later). At every reception I would ask how much the room was and if it had a shower, they gave the price but then always pointed to the restaurant while either giggling or looking at us like we were crazy. We thought it was a bit odd that none of them had rooms with a shower, only a shared one near the restaurant, and then it dawned on us. We'd been saying 'Mee naam plaa mai?' instead of 'Mee ab naam mai? so we were asking for fish sauce instead of a shower, it was the 'naam' bit which made us think we were asking the right question. Another example of 'farang bah'!

I often hear farangs butcher the Thai language, far worse than the Thais do English. By way of example, I overheard a father trying to give his son a reading lesson at Doi Chaang the other day. Reading the name of the shop off the glass, he said "you know what Chaang means don't you?" "It means elephant." The problem was that he was using the wrong "a" and was saying "curse" (แช่ง) not elephant (ช้าง). Looked to me like the son's silence was brought about by his unwillingness to correct his father.

I guess I found that funny in a perverse way. ;)

Both of the above posts are funny. Stu reminds me that I should have included our own mistakes in the title. I am sure we are just as funny as the ladies, sometimes,

As far as the father and son thing in the coffee shop: The son is probably regaling his school friends with that story.

You started a thread like this on the same day you sharpened your kaneevis?

Brave man.

About the shirt.....she is not alone. I often find myself doing that also.

Everybody knows that restaurant staff keep notebooks about what customers wear and laugh at people who repeat on consecutive visits.

PLUS, everyone thinks as you have evidently only one shirt and you still wear it, that you never ever washed it and never had a shower since..! :bah:

Yes, sometimes I wonder...

I am always impressed that I can correct my lady's English once and 99% of the time she get it right from then on. She corrects me and I get it right 1% of the time. Two examples of things she retains are correct technically but just not normal usage (but so cute) are:

day after tomorrow - next tomorrow

throw up - throw out

There are more but I am drawing a blank.

We also had fun with Amazon coffee - she A maze on

one from yesterday that made me smile, talking on the phone I hear "oi jep jep!"

Me; "bpen arai?"

Her " I kick my finger table"

Me "huh?"

She (laughing) "sorry, not finger, finger-foot!"

I know it's a literal translation 'niw meu' finger-hand and 'niw tao' finger-foot (toe) but it always makes me chuckle.

Yeah, I'm easily amused :)

And the dog does if kd say in Thai but not in English. That is funny. Now kd wants to learn Thai so he can talk to the dog but not to the people.
