depends what your singing ....  :tongue:

 

When you sing to Thai kids who cannot speak English it really doesn't matter WHAT you sing but the way that you sing it. It is the tone of your voice, the way you hold and cuddle children, if they let you, and your general attitude when you talk and sing to them that is the important thing.

 

Old Beatles songs, dirty songs that I learnt in the military, it doesn't matter. Children can sense when you are good and they can certainly sense when you are angry and hostile and they react accordingly.

Even better. 

 

Some of the farang children, particularly the half Thai half farang ones are spoilt brats, screaming, kicking and running riot while their  bar girl mother does nothing, apart from taking sexy selfies on her latest smart phone, and the kids father, who is old enough to be his great great grandfather, is so geriatric and stupid he can't do anything either.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you very much for the general insult though you did qualify it by saying "some".

 

I am neither stupid nor geriatric and neither does my wife take sexy selfie photos either.

 

I am not sure how many half Thai half farang children you know, but certainly the ones that I know, including my 13 year old son, are nothing like that and, BTW, I am 60 years older than my son.

 

If you want a good example please come to see me and then you may understand that not all half Thai/ half farang children are the same. I will take you around and show you my friends wives and children as well if you like.

 

I don't think it will change your obvious prejudice though.

Its not prejudice.  It's what I see on a regular basis.  The international schools don't help either, because the children start to act like the misbehaving spoilt peers to fit in.

 

I also don't think all half Thai / Farang children are like that, only a larger proportion of them than the Thai children, who are taught (in general) to show respect to elders and politeness.  

 

But, your are 60 years older than your son. That's your choice to have kids at your age.  But if I was a child I would be very sad my Dad died of old age before I was even an adult myself.

Well I am not dead yet. I have outlived my parents who were both 69 when they died 15 years apart. My next target age is my Gran who was 78, then my brother who was 81 followed by my GrandDad who was 82 when he died.

 

It is funny you should mention that as my Dad was 55 when I was born and my Mum was 39. He died a couple of months before I was 15.

 

No I wasn't sad in that way because he was my Dad and I loved him. He married my Mum in 1924 when she was 20 and he was 35.

 

My older brother was born in February 1926 and died in October of the same year. Now that was really sad for my parents. They adopted my brother in 1931 and I came along in 1944. The age gap didn't mean anything to me as they were simply my Mum and Dad.

 

There are things that I cannot physically do with my son anymore but they are more than made up for with the things I can do that my Dad couldn't do with me.

Odered off the bus because the 2nd driver could not sleep!!

Bit drastic, Thais can normally sleep through any noise, my wife can anyway.

Maybe the 2nd driver was too high on something to sleep.

Or maybe this is a one-sided version, in which we read only what the father had to say. I find it difficult to believe that a driver would kick a family out because a child was crying for 30 minutes when no-one was complaining. And I find it difficult to believe that a father would start a 10-hour journey with two young children with only 25 baht in his pocket.

Beautiful. Wonderful. Glorious. Have you ever been on a bus, train, or airplane, when a child will not stop crying? Why aren't the parents carrying a muzzle for their kid? It is one of the most annoying things in the world. I totally agree, this was the right thing to do. Hopefully they were left at a gas station, where they had access to food and drink. It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure their kids behave. Do what you have to do, to quiet down your kid. Be responsible for your offspring. Be a parent. Give him a sleeping pill. Do something. Nobody should have to endure that kind of torture, for 8 hours. Especially 30-40 other people. That is just not right.

You poor, dried out, sod...

 

A bit soft, are we? No boundaries, whatsoever? Anyone can do anything, anytime? And you never, ever have an issue with that?
