Apparently, ignorance and forgetfulness will get your electricity cut off. After receiving a half slip of paper in my mailbox that was entirely in Thai and thus not decipherable, I stuck it in my bookcase and promptly forgot about it. A frantic call from my landlord saying my electricity would be cut off if I didn’t pay by 5 pm totally perplexed me. I insisted I hadn’t received a bill. He got more anxious. I remembered that little piece of paper. He started breathing again. Turns out, if you forget this sort of thing, you can take the elevator to the second floor in your pajamas and have your landlord messenger the money over for about two bucks. Have I mentioned how much I love Thailand?
On another note, after being warned about the dangers of riding a motorcycle taxi and promptly dismissing them, I sustained my first injury. Thankfully it didn’t necessitate a helmet; I singed my leg on the muffler.
Now what you’re about to see isn’t pretty. I can’t shave my legs where the burn is.
Gross I know, but I wanted you to have the full experience.
A tip: Don’t eat for about 30 minutes.
