Somehow I doubt very much that sarcasm is something that would resonant with the Thai mentality :wink:

Its interesting how a language hasa culture built into it. i worked for a Thai boss who had lived and worked in the US for many years. With Thai staff he naturally talked with them in Thai. If ,however, he was unhappy or had to discipline them, he always did it in English. In English he could be more direct and authoritative and of course, confrontational.
