Never understand people here?

It is called appreciation and is usually reciprocated.

Exactly and an expressed "thank you" would reduce it to the exact base some clerk saying "thank you" receiving the money for the groceries.

When I buy groceries I always say 'thank you', either in English or Thai, to the person serving me.

It is called 'manners' and costs nothing.

Exactly.

In my in-laws family, I never hear anybody say "thank you" to anybody about anything - except to the clerks in M.K. after eating.

I could be wrong but I think Thai's generally feel they do not need to thank within the family, but only to outsiders

You may be right. The other word that's not to often said is "Goodbye". It seems to me strange how some just get up and leave without saying this.

Older Thais don't but the Children wave Bye Bye these days

If it has never been a trait of the older generations to be polite and respectful, who instills it into the younger generation to be so ?

It's a different kind of respect isn't it? Not on our terms or what we're used to. They wai a lot, they walk around people rather than step over them, they never point with their feet etc.They might be saying the same stuff about us because in their eyes we're uncouth since we don't care for these things so much. They do believe their young are becoming too Westernized.

I know a lot of people will not respond, but the actual percentage of couples that believe they are in love, is false (he maybe, but she ???).

I am talking about a one way street, you may 'love' her, but is it reciprocated ?

If you have cash, yes, you think it is, but in my 25 years of experience, dream on.

Respect your wife, love your mia nois.

That was deeply superficial

What is love? It is different for everybody. As my wife and I have lived together for almost 15 years now, our love has gone through many stages. It is now at the stage where we are very comfortable with each other, care for each other, respect each other, and wouldn't think of living with anyone else. A nice place to be in life.

Have you noticed that when Ties finish a phone call it just stops, no good by, see you etc.

Seems strange.

Manners are different everywhere.

When I buy groceries the employees usually say "thank you", either in English or Thai, for serving me. It is called manners and costs nothing.

Correct, and usually with a smile.

(Their 'thank you' is actually for your custom rather than serving you !).
