    I do hear of this phrase very often too. I guess it means "Yes, SIR". Not sure if this is correct. Can anyone verify this?

    The word "krap" is a polite way of saying "yes" while on the telephone. To be even more polite to your boss, you would say "krap pom" which is like a solider saying "yes, sir".

    Hi amateurlim!
    As the members already mentioned Krap Phom Ѻ means something like "Yes I ...". Depending on the Context what the other person said or asked you it can mean "Yes I do", "Yes I understand", "Yes I will go" and so on. It is a much more polite form than just Ѻ and is usually used towards Higher Ranking Persons and only by men.
    Originally it comes from Military Language and so "Yes Sir" is also a good translation.
    Hope that helps you!!!

    Good question. What do women said? Is it the same thing? I have never heard a woman use that phrase, only men.
