On 5th May 2023, a Thai netizen made a post to a popular Thai Facebook group asking for help deciphering what their paralysed father had written.

In the post, the netizen made a plea to other netizens for help. The post received overwhelming support with over 150 people making comments to assist.

The general consensus seemed to be that the writing says “2 bottles of Brand’s and sweetened milk”. So at least now the Thai netizen knows what to add to their grocery list.

Other suggestions for communicating

Other netizens who commented also left potentially helpful advice. Some of these suggestions include having the father communicate using a phone keyboard.

Unfortunately, while this may be useful for most cases, according to the netizen asking for help, their father’s condition has deteriorated to the point where this isn’t possible.

Communicate with your loved ones

This story is a good reminder of how being able to communicate with your loved ones is important. It’s one of those things that gets overlooked until it’s no longer there.

Maybe today’s a good day to message our parents, and maybe visit them with some food and milk.
