Being Ignored - Do you say anything?

Recommended Posts

More often than not it is younger stuck up Thai woman in their twenties that don,t understand my Thai until i insult them. While grandmother in her nineties understands me just fine.

Most Thais I met would applaud any foreigner for even using one word correctly. String together a whole sentence or *gasp* carry out a conversation, and you're a superstar. Maybe more so in the countryside and outside of tourist areas. 

Yes, i also get often that kind of positive reaction, still, friends who speak Thai better than me, get the kind of reaction described in the OP.

It could be that they expect a foreigner to speak English, and they get confused...
