      How did you wash up in Thailand in the first place?
      Two weeks in Pattaya or Cowboy would be a likely guess

        You are obviously an idiot - and I dont waste time arguing with them - I just block them.
        If I dont respond it is because: A) Libtard; B) Blocked Libtard; C) Playing Golf

          Please leave us all alone Luigi / Dan / Jose

          Get back to clowning about on TD. You won't get no repo here apart from pissflaps.

          Is it really worth it?

                      I've been trying to learn Thai for decades and have lived here since 2005. I've spent lots of money on courses, books, CDs, etc. After all that time and effort I still can't make heads or tails out of spoken Thai. I've never had any sort of conversation with anyone in Thai.

                      If we're out and about and I hear something I don't understand (around 100% of the time), I ask my wife about it. She usually translates the Thai from standard spoken Thai in to what we call "Rosetta Stone Thai" which I readily understand. I'm sure you can see that this approach is impractical.

                      Yesterday we were at lunch when one of the patrons asked for the bill. I only know he asked for the bill because soon after he spoke one of the waiters delivered the check to his table. I understood none of what he said. I could pick out no familiar words.

                      I asked my wife to "tell me exactly what he said". I amended that by telling her to text it to me instead. This is what she sent:
                      น้องครับ เช็คบิลด้วยครับ

                      Of course, as soon as I read that I did indeed know exactly what he said.

                      How can I persuade my ear/brain to do as well with spoken Thai as I do with written Thai?
                      Some things are just not meant to be. In this case you should give up.

                        That's sad.

                          Sure seems that way. Even the News Junkie has fooked off?
                          God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

                            Nay.
                            Just posted up the other day.

                            I'd be more curious as to who News Junkie might be.
