I've always respected the traditional Wai, and when I use it, I mean it. On recent visits to the Kingdom, It seems like I'm getting Wai'd everywhere I go. At McDonald's, at the supermarket, at Hualampong station when I'm buying a train ticket, and just today, the chick who collects the 2 baht for the toilet at MBK actually Wai'd me! I know this is a tourism thing, but FFS 9 times out of 10, they look really putout by having to Wai.
Anyone else notice this?
4 more years!
Yeah, the 'commercial' wai. I hate it.

Brilliant! I listened to it. That's me smiling. Lovely, it was. Couldn't green ya WB (must blah, blah, blah), you know the drill.
Cheers and thanks.
^Nice to stay on topic, eh?
When I was in America a guy told me to 'have a nice day' but I didn't, so I sued him
^ well when I thanked Tomcat I actually did a nice finger tip to nose wai
But on topic I could do without the Robinsons' doorman wai, and other trivial ones
They should be wai'ing.
They are beneath and inferior to you.
