Intercultural challenges: Room to Rest or Rest-Room?

While in Bangkok my brother-in-law from USA visited me.

My wife was going into a cloth-store, owned by a Thai Sikh family.

My brother in law asked the shop keeper:

” Do you have a rest-room?”

The shop keeper answered:

” No, but I can give you a chair “.

 

Ah, well …   that is not exactly what he needed at the time.

(True story)
