  1. Take a read of Post 279. you are correct narcissism is not in short supply on TV
  2. Bar 'lady drink' etiquette?

    Good advice thanks, made me smile
  3. i hope you noted i corrected it !!!! belatedly
  4. Nothing impressive about being an English teacher, just an average job, certainly doesn't make you anything special!
  5. In an attempt to lighten this up a little, i don't know what it is but for some reason i find myself typing 'here' when i mean 'hear', there when i mean 'their' and quite a few others as well. I know the differences but i think more about age and being careless than stupidity or lack of intellect.
  6. Bar 'lady drink' etiquette?

    I may be a bit out of date (not been in Thailand for 6 months) but in CM the type of drink the girl ordered had a direct relationship with what you paid. But i have been in the P'pinnes recently and what you say is true there, you pay a set price and they get a 'c..p' drink. Couldn't agree more about her vanishing quickly, i always ask the girl first if anyone else has brought her a drink and if she vanshes (without my OK) i won't pay for it. It has happened a few times, the bar or mamasan have understood and i have been told the girl then has to pay!
  7. Time needed Don Muang to Swampy early morning

    I have used the shuttle bus on numerous occasions and if your train is on time it will be the best option. At that time of the morning though i think the frequency of the shuttle is every 30 mins. Most of the time the shuttle has taken just less than 1 hour. The other public transport option (takes about 1 hr 15m) is take a bus from Don Muang (same place as shuttle) to Mo Chit, get the BTS to Phaya Thai and then change lines and direct by BTS to Swampy. If you just miss the shuttle and there is a Mo Chit bus waiting it may just be a quicker option but it will cost you 80 baht or so. Either way if your train is on time you should be at Swampy by 0730.
  8. Bar 'lady drink' etiquette?

    Not at all, you seem to have closed your mind on this. If you don't care what she is drinking the bar could easily be ripping you off and charging spirit price for an orange juice and that is wrong. I agree though that it is up to her what she drinks (so long as not too expensive)
  9. Bar 'lady drink' etiquette?

    The girl (who is looking for a barfine) potentially has a similar dilema, is the guy who she is sat with just going to buy drinks and by sitting with him is she missing out on a R an R customer.
  10. Bar 'lady drink' etiquette?

    I am paying both for her time and for her drink (in most bars the cost of lady drinks will vary) , so it does matter what she is served.
  11. dave2? Sad news apparently :(

    I know 71 has been mentioned here but i thought he was much younger, (mid sixties) but i stand to be corrected. Certainly from what i knew of his health and mobility it was an unexpected , untimely and sad loss. It is natural to be curious about the causes of his demise.
  12. Is it only me that hasn't a clue what the Posters on this this page are talking about? It s meant to be a forum in English. And so far removed from the OP's interesting thread.
  13. i seriously would not have a clue how to spend it.
  14. dave2? Sad news apparently :(

    He is probably chuffed we are keeping him on the 1st page of the CM forum

    I suspect you may really have 'hit the nail on the head' here.
