i do too, then i ask, so what do u speak at home, does your mom and pops speak thai to you or lao? ok then u're freaking lao aight ok, get it straight hahaha, ok no i don't say it... but i do ask. ppl annoys me when they say they are thai when they are no where near being thai, just wanna be thai.I do, however get annoyed when a 100% Lao person would claim that they are half Thai or Thai, just to hide the fact that they are Lao. That just tells me that the person is ashamed of being Lao; that is just too damn ridiculous.
lmfao... um i say lay-o-shen... never realized it was lau-o-tian.When someone says they're "Laos." it doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is when some says they're "Lay-O-tian" or "Leo-O-tian." That really crawls under my skin. First of all, it's pronounced "Lau-o-tian," and second of all, the word "Laotian" was invented by a Westerner. I don't mind if a white person says "Lay-O-Tian," cause they don't know any better. But when a Lao person says that??? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR......... I want to throw hot dipping sauce with padek and chili peppers all over their face.
