    I think because I am immersed in the business world here and deal with Thais at all levels I might see things a bit differently. Also my Thai is not bad even though my eleven year old laughs when ever I speak. If someone came to my house or my office with full knowledge of my correct name and asked to speak to the farang I would not be interested in talking to them. I definitely consider this rude. Even when Immigration have called they refer to me as Khun James.

    Having said that I don't live in a village and most my contact with Thais is in the big cities or towns and usually in an official capacity.

    Ohm calls me by my name, I assume they will learn to use my name the more Ohm uses it lol
