  1. I think what the OP wanted to say was that he never complains about anything here and it's only people from other countries than his own... still batting 0.000 i see
  2. no big deal. the bangkok middle and upper classes have their noses out of joint because the wealth and power is beginning to spread to the boonies and their privileged position in thai society is being eroded. its about frickin time! You generalising a bit there. Middle class is a misnomer in this country anyway, in comparison with the rest of the world. I would ask all those so called middle classes if they pay their taxes correctly. I think we know the answer to that. They are a type of NIMBY... Desperate to feel important at their neighbours expense. This lot might well just be anti corruption. How can anyone be pro corruption? its the THAI middle class and they exist and they pay taxes. and everybody in thailand is pro corruption. these protestors are just pissed off that the corruption is flowing to the provinces for once!

    Thailand, Hub of Disgrace, but Land of Excuses

    I rarely respond with "nonsense," but, nonsense. Anyone from any country, even with empty pockets, has always been able to wheel into an emergency room of any hospital in America and be treated in an emergency. By law, they must be stabilized. And, at least in the States, this woman would have legal recourse. OP, I've said it here many times, you get what you pay for. People rave about low cost here. Medical tourists flock here. I'd rather go into debt and be treated by a doctor in the west. Generally speaking, here, one becomes a physician for the money, ultimately for the face. Losing a patient is not a motivating factor to ensure proper care. Doctors I know and worked with in California, are personally deeply pained when they lose a patient. They give their all. Life has far less value here. death is viewed differently. Face is everything. Generally speaking, that is. what a load of codswallop

    Do you wai?

    depends whose definition of advanced you are using Education, wealth, infrastructure, politics, laws, human rights, health care.. the usual subjects when describing advancement. Does it automatically mean superior? For me no, I prefer my life in Thailand chilling on a hammock sipping a beverage and seeing smiley faced Thais going past. i notice you left out happiness and contentment

    Thank god for this eh? Did anyone call you a thai apologist already. Thank god the thais aren't chinese though seems like there are more "thai apologists" than chinese ones. Also i always wonder why farang have these double standards and seem perfectly fine with them. because, as every civilized person knows, our ways have proven to be the best ways and the heathens would do well to learn from us!! lol OMG surely this has to be said in jest. I reccomend you look up the using toilet paper thread and see how far more advanced and cleaner these heathen thais are by using the jet spray as opposed to that toilet paper that just doesn't clean as well. Anyway you ignored my question on the double standards these farangs have. Rude to everyone else thinks it's perfectly fine. Someone is rude to him and goes apesh!t. i thought my inclusion of a "lol" would be enough to show i was joking

    I think your Thai friends are tell you what they think you want to hear. They are being polite. . personally i give a flying fàrt what Thais think concerning wais. and that goes for the dozens of lessons and advice "how/when to wai or not" posted by Farangs in Thaivisa, most of whom claiming that they are totally immersed in local culture and therefore "thaier" than the average Thai. when my 2 year old designated grand-goddaughter or my 2 year old designated grand-godson wai then i return their greeting in the same way. that also applies to the guard at the gate who stands at attention and salutes when i pass... except i salute and sit in attention in my car. there's Klingon politeness and there's male bovine feces! lol! I love it. live in a country and dont give a stuff that the inhabitants of that country have little for respect you!!
  12. yes, an that is what thailand wants. hawaii went that way and never looked back.
  13. A guest suggests you were invited, instead of arrived of your own bat.No one invited me, and beyond my wife, not too many extended me an overwhelming amount of hospitality. youve obviously never seen the extensive TAT marketing campaigns I have a feeling that most of those would be prosecuted as false advertising. you obviously didnt sample what they were selling 18 years of it. Was fun for a long time, but times change. are there any really clean and fabulous beaches left? Last time, I got sick of picking up plastic rubbish. stay at a higher end resort then
