When you want to say you’re not in the mood to do something, you could say “ไม่ได้อยู่ในอารมณ์ที่จะ” [mâi dâai yùu nai aarom tîi jà], followed by the action you’re not in the mood to do, for example, “ฉันไม่ได้อยู่ในอารมณ์ที่จะคุยกับใคร” [chán mâi dâai yùu nai aarom tîi jà kui gáp khrai] I’m not in the mood to talk to anyone. Another similar expression you can use is “ไม่มีอารมณ์” [mâi mee aarom], which is closer to the expression “to not feel like doing something”. “ผมไม่มีอารมณ์ทำงานเลย” [phŏm mâi mee aarom tam-ngaan loei] I don’t feel like working at all. For “I’m not in the mood” as a response, you can simply say “ไม่มีอารมณ์” [mâi mee aarom] or “ไม่ได้อยู่ในอารมณ์” [mâi dâai yùu nai aarom].
