That damned arrogant cyclist says sorry but..

Recommended Posts

I have moved to Ayutthaya recently so my gf called her brother who has lived here many years and he recommended a hospital (Rajthanee Hospital), they were very professional, very quick attendance. I guess cost will vary from place to place.
 
Total was 2,040 baht but that includes doctors fee, quick general health check ( weight, height, blood pressure etc ) , clean up of wound and some medication they gave me .
So difficult to say exactly how much the actual injections cost.
 
Here’s my receipt:

Your guess is as good as mine !
 
 

Hi Andrew is that for the whole course of injections or just what you have received to date .

Thanks! At least I have a ballpark figure to aim for in Pattaya. Looks like 1170 for the next 3 injections and 300 for the nurse, unless you have to pay more.

AS far as Soi dogs are concerned  I have through experience found out that talking to them in a sort of calm derisory manner  seems to get them off the offensive.

Example " What the heck is wrong with you you silly boy" said in a nice quiet reassuring manner works wonders, the exception is if you suddenly surprise them  but then again if that is the case,  I have the ultimate deterrent, a golf graphite driver shaft without the head bit sheathed in a 18" piece of 1" plastic electrical tubing to the handle bars.

 

When they see the big stick  being unsheathed from its scabbard they always back off, the exception was about three years ago when a very surly and aggressive Mutt  perhaps drunk or on steroids kept on coming with the intention of eating me. 

 

On this occasion I swung the shaft in a sort of blind  panic to where I thought the the big Mutt was and luckily for me but unluckily for him, hit him square on the nose with the tip of the shaft being at supersonic speed .

 

His yells and screams made me feel very bad and for a long time, I was  as guilty as hell about that lucky strike but I met up with that same dog many times on my perambulations around that area and he never again aver came to have a word with me and I often wondered why

Perhaps he never chased anyone again.

 

If a dog chases you, if you stop quickly, look them in the eyes and shout, they walk away baffled. They don't expect that and it surprises them.

I usually give the soi dogs a wide berth and don’t try to pass them at speed and startle them but this one came out of nowhere, I suspect he was under a car, he came up behind me quickly and quietly, I believe the breed is Stealth !!
The problem is the sois are narrow and the locals nearly all leave their cars or pickups outside leaving me with restricted vision.

I’m a dog lover but I think will have to get myself some deterrent of some kind to protect myself.

Went out at 5pm for a little ride with the gf and WTH if another dog didn’t have a go !!

My gf said that after being bitten once I would get bitten often now !!
I tried explaining to her that somethings are better left unsaid but she didn’t get it

Well, as I mentioned in my previous post, one of my worst fears are the overly protective ( of their patch) soi dogs or the overly protective ( or their owners house ) “ pets “.
Today the inevitable happened:
I’ve mapped out my route for my morning cycle to avoid the 2 x pit bulls with ridiculously large chains round their necks and the monster of a dog protecting the workshop at the end of the soi.
As I was merrily cycling along enjoying the morning sun and quiet neighbourhood I felt a sharp pain in my backside/leg. I grimaced in pain ( okay, so I shrieked like a 9 year old schoolgirl emoji51.png ) instinctively kicked out at the soi dog, he scuttled off merrily, his work done.

Not a bad bite but as drew blood here I sit in the hospital waiting room ☹️

Hey ho, such is life !!

what is your plan now to avoid getting rebitten in the future

Hey Andrew , the ironic soi dog whisperer . Did you talk to your dog in the UK like that . Love it , “!you silly boy , now behave or you I am going to improve my par with you “ I hate soi dogs , even a squirt from my water bottle is no discouragement . The muggers obviously get a quick cool off and come for more .

Never had a problem with dogs , yes some of them want to attack me , but then I just stop and scare them away . If you stop and turn against them and make noises they will be very scared of you -   But you need to be observant so they don't catch you first!

How would your gf possibly know that and why do people make up such stuff?  Tell her that you believe her, but that in order to counteract the curse, she will have to bite the next soidog that comes at you, before it bites you.  A classic man bites dog scenario that may get headlines!
