    how do i say. . / directions questions too :)

    hi guys, just a few questions b4 i make my run to work. and yea oh my god, dogodon and pailin improvement in thai is getting so good. i can see them typing thai almost in every question. i am feeling abit shameful now. hehehe

    how do i say

    1) you are such a dissappointment. (well i am for not typing in thai)

    besides using - koon tam hai phom pit wang maak leeuy.

    2) i have been sitting taxi. everytime i hear the driver say
    something like

    a) bpai xxx
    b) chuang nai ? ( can i have the thai word and the meaning of it)

    3rd) i have always sit taxi to anusawari to take van to other province.
    but there is a few locations in anusawari with van pickups. so upon reaching my intended pickup point, i ask the taxi what i should say next time if i want to reach this van pickup point instead of others. he told me next time say

    "bpai ee dtrong tii mee rot mae yur (PANG?) saphan kwai ?
    i am not sure if i hear correctly, if i said it correctly can someone explain to me what is the meaning of (pang)

    thanks.

    Chuang = ǧ = [ N ] period; section; part; interval; span.

    So I think it is a question like 'How long?'

    'Paan' means to pass.

    hmm david, 10s for your quick reply, i forget what is the reply of my girlfriend after that. but dont you think it is wierd for the taxi driver to ask how long the period would take to go to lets say silom

    me) go silom
    taxi) how long ?

    but i believe you got the right word, i think the taxi means which section/part of the place.

    I think you may be right.

    I mis-understood the question originally, I thought both parts were said by the taxi driver and he was asking what time the van you were going for left.

    how do i say

    1) you are such a dissappointment. (well i am for not typing in thai)

    besides using - koon tam hai phom pit wang maak leeuy.
    I would say 'سҼԴѧԧ ' - koon nêe nâa pìt wăng jing jing loie

    2) i have been sitting taxi. everytime i hear the driver say
    something like
    a) bpai xxx
    b) chuang nai ? ( can i have the thai word and the meaning of it)
    As mat has explained in his post.

    a)
    b) ()ǧ˹Ѻ

    "bpai ee dtrong tii mee rot mae yur (PANG?) saphan kwai ?
    - յçöмҹоҹ - Go where there are a lot of buses pass Saphan Kwai.

    It might be understandable but if I were you I would say
    '͹ ç͹¡仾¸Թ"
    - bpai à-nóo-săa-wá-ree dtrong gòn yâek bpai pá-hòl-yoh-tin
    Go anusawari right before going to Phaholyothin Road.
