"miss" "ms."

Recommended Posts

I send text msgs in Thai to women and I often like to call them "Miss Lek" - so I'll say "swasdiikhap khun Lek" in Thai. My intent is to be playful as it would be if I were writing or talking to a young farang woman friend in a casual way. It gets a smile.

 

I wondering if I'm totally off track trying to do this in Thai. Is there a better way to do it?

 

What do you think?

 

Thanks...GG

You send text messages to different women and like to call them all by the name Lex .. :help:

 

I put up a post on Thai smiles on this board, check it out. I'm sure the smiles you get are not because their happy.

I use her nickname and Khun. "Khun Lek" for girl a named Lek. "Khun Pah" for a girl named Pah.

 

I'm trying to be a little funny, excessively polite. My question is: Do you think a Thai woman would find it funny?

Which rather begs the question as to what sort of wordplay would a Thai lady find amusing?

When I send a txt to a lady who has come to my room a couple of time and I start out "Swasdeekahp TiRak" - that always gets a laugh.

On the other hand, you guys haven't been a lot of help on this one.

 

One of you married guys must know what little word play makes your wife laugh. Yes?
