Searching for reason #1979......searching......then, bingo! Right in front of me.

ท่อตัน ส้วนตัน 042-221-230. I called to confirm and the lady gave me a second number as well.....042-181-614. I took this photo near the airport, but the lady said they're based near BoBae. Apparently, they do jobs around the city. Looked like a sizeable motor in the back of the man's cart.

I'm guessing his prices are a good bit less than the average costs in Texas between $131 and $290

A little Thai goes a long way.

Yes, in my 21 years here, this is the first time I've seen a Thai Roto-Rooter! And that's one of those periodic problems that expats find themselves facing in Thailand. Only problem is, you won't find Roto-Rooter in the yellow pages!

ท่อตัน ส้วมตัน Clogged pipes, clogged toilet

I'm pretty sure I posted this some time back.......but it's worth another shot.

The driver in front of you is driving erratically, no blinkers, enters the roundabouts without following the rules of the road, driving way below the speed limit........what to do?

If the sticker on the back of the vehicle read: Beware of drunk driver......you'd keep your distance.
or if the sticker said: I got my license without taking driving lessons.......you'd keep your distance.

A little Thai goes a long way (to making your life here more enjoyable.

A preemptive apology? ขออภัย มือใหม่

Think I’d keep my distance. :lol:

The number of western words that infiltrate the local language continues to surprise me. In many cases, a ์ gives a hint that the word is of western origin. In this case, the ์ is used as if the 2 words are one.
