Wit’s Top Ten

Just for fun I started thinking of this little ‘bullet’ while waiting on my Mesozoic Era PC to load at work.

Top Ten Reasons it’s cool to be an ‘Out’ Thai fanatic at Work

10. You can write all your pass codes down in Thai so no one can read them (unless your boss is Thai but she swears she won’t tell 😛 )
9. You can make your office space look really cool with Thai posters, calendars and screensavers.
8. Talking on the phone in Thai with your friends makes you sound mysteriously cool to your co-workers (plus they wonder what your up too)
7. Cooking Thai food for the company office party makes you really popular and there are never any leftovers!
6.You can drown out inane office chatter by listening to cool Thai music CD’s on your Walkman
5. Anything Thai is always an interesting topic of conversation around the water cooler.
4. Bored at work? You can catch up on the latest with Thai-Blogs.com (just don’t get caught ;))
3. A vacation to Thailand sounds way cooler than your office mate’s trip to the beach. Again.
2. Getting ‘fired’ at work just means adding extra chillies to your lunch!

And the number one reason it’s cool to be a Thai fanatic is….

1. As a Buddhist think of all the extra religious holidays!

  1. Does this go for ‘In’ farang who just love Thai food/culture/people/food as well?

  2. Do you really do all of those? I can probably relate to # 3, 4 and 6.

  3. I can (and usually do) get away with all of the above except one. Care to guess which one that one is?

    Wit (That’s not funny) Patton

  4. Getting fired at work, perhaps? #2? LOL

  5. Another good thing is that when any Thai visitor visits office, I am always part of the welcome. And then I get to take them out for Thai lunches to the expensive restaurants on company account.

  6. #10 – I do too! My PIN and other important info I need to jot down I do it in Thai numbers.

    Being a lone Thai in the office, I think this applies to me too. Although I don’t do #2 (don’t do spicy), #6 (sorry long since lost touch with Thai music and can’t quite get back into it. I’d prefer good ol’ American rock-alt…), and #7 (don’t cook Thai food as much).

    Nice one, Wit!

  7. cool list except #2 😛

    I’m Thai.
