I wish Thai/English speakers would relay this information to Thai-only speakers.........
-Answering incoming call: when you hear English, do not immediately hang up and say nothing! Say "no English, bye" or say "wait" and go get an English speaker (learn 4 words). Hanging up without "bye" is VERY IMPOLITE to foreigners, something like a foreigner pointing with his feet.
-Same as Thai calling and getting a English-only person answering the phone. Do not panic; settle down and surprise yourself that you can handle the call. At the least say "wait" and get an English speaker. Alternative, say "COW TAUGHT" ("sorry") and "bye."
-Also, when taking an incoming call, listen for the English saying the name of the person wanted on the line; just do not simply hang up.
Am I dreaming ?
