#3 You know you've left home when...

You know you've left home when...
  • it's a battle to find double bed sheets and blankets without cartoon characters on them...we settled for an electric blue Hawaiian print. Très chic!
  • he asks the waitress if the soup is 'hot and spicy?' to which she replies 'THANK YOU'.
  • your lunch date points out that it's NOT alright to shove CD's and people wearing old fashioned aeroplane goggles??? down the toilet...she's bitterly disappointed.
I'm sure the kitchen staff are still wondering why there were flashing lights coming from the 'ladies'

  • elephants are wearing Santa hats
  • even the manikins are happy...or they're in dire need of medication?
  • you watch a movie in the dentist's waiting room, chock full of stabbings, shootings, burning bodies and kissing, but the glasses of champagne are blurred/censored it's not OK to pop open a bottle of bubbly, after a hard day of slaughtering? Got it!

Snap I really do like this post, it hit the right spot with me.

The manikin looks sweet and the blurred champagne glasses are so typical of Thailand's head scratching double standards.

Great post and I won't mention the cricket because it might send Stray into a bad mood.

Come on England.

Hi T...of course! It's all starting to feel quite normal ;)

Hi Martyn, Stray doesn't follow the cricket, but said you've got a bit of catching up to do...Oi Oi Oi.

Kellie, I know there are entire websites dedicated to Chinglish, toilets and their signs..but I think with this one, someone definitely had a sense of humour!
