    Re: Examples of Thai peasant mentality in the face of their attitude

    Don't get me started about driving habits in this nation either, those who unexpectedly are able to drive, ie a bus, minibus and often a taxi are guilty of sometimes showing such a vengence against the normal pedestrian that mowing them down and killing them is almost what you think they are trying to do. Their attitude to the regular person going about his business and wanting to cross the street normally is just both scary and primitive. It's as if they are getting back at these innocent people for not being able to afford a car in the normal way.

    Re: Examples of Thai peasant mentality in the face of their attitude

    What thoroughly annoys me is how none of the Thai people I know, family and coworkers, can't ever seem to put something back where they found it.

    I go to print a document, but can't... used to spend five minutes troubleshooting, not I just look for the usb wire.

    Where are the fecking scissors? I just collected a box full of them from all the classrooms...

    "Oh you are in a hurry and need to use my computer to print from? Okay, just make sure to turn it off when you are finished" next day, the computer is still on...

    Where are my goddamn lighters? I have about 300 of them, I cannot find one, even though there were five on the shoeshelf the night before.

    I have found it, in my neighborhood and school, that it is safer to leave money and expensive phones lying around than unimportant things that are occasionally needed. Everyone of them are good people, just mindless when it comes to other people's things

    If the signs don't work maybe they can rebrand themselves in Thailand as Tesco Loso?

    Re: Examples of Thai peasant mentality in the face of their attitude

    What about Thai sales techniques when it comes to farangs?

    "Oh you must be rich so all I've gotta do is tell you the basics about this product and I'll be laughing all the way to the bank with my commision"

    Wrong. You gotta work a bit harder than that and impress me with something different it can do, I know it's a DVD player so obviously the door slides open like a drawer, I know it can play and pause. Can it give me a short, back and sides?

    Chinese are shocking. If they aren't coughing up a big blackie, then they are burping, bumping ya on the street, speaking very loudly or some other thing that makes ya wanna strangle them.

    Media consolidation is rampant, even in the small world of internet forums dedicated to expat life in Thailand. Had to do a double take when I looked at the other channel and saw the exact same thread by the same poster. He's even steering discussion in the same direction over there with phrasing lifted from posters responding here.

    Re: Examples of Thai peasant mentality in the face of their attitude

    I was just walking back up the stairs to my flat, behind a couple of ladies and their little ones. Sweet little boy sucking on some nom waan. I say hi to the ladies and ask nipper if his milk is nice. 'Oh, he scared farang', says one of the women. I pulled a playful hurt face and asked why. Just a chuckle in response. No big deal, they seemed like nice people and it wasn't said nastily.
    I came back up here and thought, it aint me and my kind you should be scared of love, it's the obtuse, ignorant, drunk, firearm toting, corrupt and jealous Thais you need to worry about.

    Western style toilet. Paper, but no 'other' water source.

    What you get that way are two different types of reponses. A censored one and a non-censored one.

    I haven't lifted anything from posters here except my own clever clogs.
