Bangkok Ordination Haircut

This was at the ordination of an ex-student/friend of mine. He joined up for a thirty-day stint as a monk, which is a common thing for young Thais to do after graduating from university or completing military service. A friend of mine told me how to be polite about the whole thing. "Give him a few hundred Baht, but he cannot touch the money to take it; tell him that he has never made you angry or done anything to hurt you."

His time is up by now. I should give him a call.
