You want girlfriend?


Dear Hillary,

Can you help me please? I have found that Thai people all seem very direct and ask you personal questions all the time. Things like “How much money you make? You married? You got wife Thai? You want girlfriend? You want me to go with you? How much money you got?” Apart from the fact that this is considered a very rude way of starting a relationship in the US, I also find it very embarrassing when I am over here. How do I get these people to stop doing this? You seem to have the answers for everyone else, so I hope you have some for me too.


Dear Jim,

It is very easy to stop people asking you these direct, personal and embarrassing questions – stop frequenting the beer bars, Petal. These are stock bar stool questions that every new bar girl learns from a book, during her one week apprenticeship at Lucky Legs a Go-Go. Yes, there is a book that they learn from, and the same book also shows the begging letters to be sent after the customer goes back home. “I lub you too mut, teerak.”
