A good friend of mine once introduced the brilliant idea of “overheard in…” where people post snippets of strange or interesting things that they overhear.

I was eating noodles and drinking iced coffee in my local neighbourhood open air cafe when I overheard two girls having a conversation:

ถ้าคนไม่มีแฟนสนิดคนเป็นคนไม่ดี

Which, at my current level of Thai I have interpreted as “if someone doesn’t have a partner they know very well, they are probably not a good person”

I’ve been told that Thai people love to gossip, so maybe when my listening skills improve this new ‘overheard in Thailand’ feature will become a lot more interesting!
