Like, I would wai and say ‘thank you’ in Thai after someone gives me something/helps me with something, especially to a Thai person.
Or how I would say “sawatdikaa” at the end of each phone call (if it is a Thai person at the other end of the line).
How I would automatically feel conscious about the way I sit. Especially if I sit on the floor.
And if I need to go out from a meeting, I feel tempted to stand up, bow my head (as a sign of respect), then quietly walk out. I haven’t done this yet – I thought I’d look silly (a farang doing this instead of Thai).
And so does Mission College.
