Just doing some shopping at Friendship. Some loud farang was shouting at a bag boy, who was smaller than him, and chest butting the boy out the main door. Not sure if he was drunk, but he was acting the part. Another farang was trying to calm him down and then he came back to the check out still making noise and was carrying on about the boy wanting him to pay for some eggs.

 

The farang then comes up with classic line to the other farang ... "it's not the money it's the principle." I couldn't fathom what principle was involved. Anyway he paid for his stuff, headed out the door, still being noisy. Then everyone near the front door made a bit of noise and sort of froze staring at the parking lot.

 

When I left the farang was seated in the parking lot with a security propping him up and blood gushing from his nose. Not sure who clocked him. He certainly managed make a fool of himself whatever the supposed principle was. He obviously thought his slight size advantage made him intimidating.

 

Absent the whole story I can't say for certain he was at fault or if he really was as drunk as he seemed, but somebody definitely gave him a different principle to think about.

Idiot big mouthed farang, severs him right. Making a Thai loose face (right or wrong) will usually end up this way.

Some Thai guys may have been waiting on him. It's looks like it's the same old story. Farang disrespects a Thai man. Thai man gets friends. You know the rest of the story.

"It's looks like it's the same old story"

 

I think you mean the same old fairy tale designed to save farang face.

 

 The bag boy never got anyone to do anything. He remained at the checkout until the farang's stuff was bagged and he paid, so he couldn't have had a chance to organize anything. And in the parking lot the security guard was trying to help the farang.

 

There seems to be some myth that super-farang can only be dropped when set upon by a gang. The boy may have followed him out or the loud mouth might have pissed off someone else on his way out, but there was no organized reprisal by some gang of friends.

Another know all. Talk about making assumptions, this one takes the cake. Gold Star to Suradit.

Agreed Aveabeeror2. I have been in and out of Jomtien for five years now. I have never had a problem. But I make it a point to be polite to everyone.

Treat folk how you wish to be treated ''with respect'' & strangely enough you get respect back.

I would guess this incident was at Friendship in Pattaya Thai? I go to the one on Pattaya Klang nearly every early morning & have observed Westeners being extremely rude, but the staff nor security never physically retaliate, just call the police if it gets too much. Once saw a Westener get a beating at Pattaya Thai by the security guys for stealing.

A principle could be that the advertised prises at the shelf are the same as when you actually have to pay for it ...

Mistakes happen and not end of world, just put the eggs back or pay for them.  No need to get aggressive with the poor bag boy.

 

Anyway, we don't know what caused the falang to lose his cool.

Another reason I avoid any shopping at the weekend when all the hungover pensioners, weekend millionaires and assorted farang riff raff are cluttering up the aisles. Not to mention those in their dotage who can't tell their Friendships' from their Foodland's.

The reason assorted farang riff raff shop at the weekend is because they want to avoid the weekday smug, pious, smartarse farang toffs.

Saw a falang matching description walking down 2nd rd toward Memorial Hospital.  This was Saturday maybe 530PM.  Traffic was stopped. 

 

 Falang had an Egg size bump on forehead topped off with a little blood.  Seemed to be sober and a fast walk.

 

Could this be the customer ?

Definitely not a member of the riff raff brigade and so on, but sadly my last remaining brain cells do create some challenges...
