The Funny Things She Says

Recommended Posts

Had to get my picture taken for a renewal of my yearly extension of stay this week. The wife checked my old pic to make sure I wouldn't be wearing the same shirt for the photo in this new pic. I guess we don't want them to think I only have one shirt.

If you have trouble I can lend you one of mine....

I'd fail her test. I'm pretty certain I wear the same shirt for immigration. I'm pretty sure, its the only time I wear it :)

That way if you have pictures left over from the last time, they do not know they are old pics. Sounds like a sound `tactic. ;)

I find it effective, to turn my shirt inside-out, so that they can't see the logo, every second year ! :whistling:

And was delighted on time when the Immigration-lady told me, I look far younger than my picture, I ascribe this to the 'mai pen rai' attitude to life, which I've aquired since moving here permanently ! :rolleyes:

It isn't always her and it isn't always something that was said.

The mother-in-law indicated today that she sure would like some of the coconuts removed from the big tree. So, I removed some for her. Then I proceeded to struggle to open one for her. I took power tools to the hull and finally extracted one. Mother needed two to use for dinner. I had a total of 8 more to do. I was working on the second one when the niece felt sorry for me and delivered one that had been serrated pretty good and she displayed the machete she had used to do it. I finished extracting the second one using my methods and took a break. It had taken me half an hour to do two and I was hot and wet and frustrated. My wife thinks my coconut skills are hilarious. I guess they are. She wanted to take pictures but I wouldn't let her.

Tonight, I grabbed my machete and went to work. Took about thirty minutes to do the next seven. But, not wanting to give up power tools completely, I polished the shells up nice with my power wire brush wheel. Nonetheless, the wife will be telling her "The son-in-law and the coconuts" story for a while.

I try to have fun and aggravate the wife sometimes.

I told her once that I was thinking about opening a business where I "wash the woman". She said "Go ahead. I will open a business 'wash the man' and my business will have a queue."

A lot of my antics backfire with her.

She spends a lot of time trying to keep me from doing some things. I usually don't listen to the fuss but I pay particular attention to the things she says she will do to me if I don't listen to her because it is usually just as funny as can be.

She told me today that she was going to be very angry at me if I fall out of that tree. She said "I will hit you! I will hit you with a stick before you hit the ground!"

I didn't fall but I was bleeding in three places when I came down and in her mind, that was just as bad.

Went out to eat with a few other couples and the ladies asked "quote" " Can I have a Fork Please ?"

Now remember the Thai accent and lack of use of the Consanant R....

The waitress and all the men laughed hysterically, but the Ladies did not get it at the time.

Not until the men repeated how they asked to have a Fork did they get it. :lol:
