I've seen versions of this granny (and not so 'granny') throughout Thailand. Markets seem to be a popular spot for them, though.
This cartoon was posted on one of Udon's facebook pages just hours before the lottery draw yesterday. I'll be on the lookout to see if she's driving a swanky new car in the next couple of days, but suspect she'll be back selling veggies at the market.
The first half of what granny is thinking is useful if you tell your children to have a good day at school....and they reply วันนี้สอบ
The second half is useful if you have children who are interrupting your concentration ห้ามรบกวน

I see this sign in many businesses, especially doctors and dentists.....where you often have a bit of time to decipher Thai signs

When I see signs like the ones on this bus.....rear......side.....I think about the hapless tourist who might try their hand at pronouncing the unpronounceable.
