The Sick Cow Story

Recommended Posts

When the cow dies, carve it up into small chunks, package it and sell it under the name "I can't believe it's not better"

genius, if I had a hat I would take it off :o

it beats the post I was going to write about telling them you like veal

Is that Chris Fairclough in the photo?

I think you mean David.

Here I am married for almost two months, ready to go back today to the USA for 3 weeks and my wife just gave me the sick cow story. One of her dads baby cows is sick and they need money to give it medical attention.

I thought this only happens to Farang suckers who dont live here and are in telecommunication relationships but I was wrong. I guess all the money I have given her and her family doesnt mean anything. They are trying to get every nickel out of me before I go back to the USA.

Needless to say I am not giving her or her family any more money. I already paid sin sid and 3 bahts gold two months ago.

For a culture as polite as the Thais seem to have, they have alot of nerve and are rude in many other respects.

Forget the Sin Sod money - but check for the 3 Baht Gold - if it is gone with the wind.... you're in serious trouble mate!

What about your dreams?

You seem like a very generous guy, with the best of intentions.

I wish you good luck with your relationship, but it sounds very one sided.

Honestly if you think she's taking you for a ride get out while you still can, i'm sure you won't have any trouble meeting another, more appreciative lady.

all the best.

rideswings thats some reply there awesome my friend. I think apart from the jokes here most people want to put you on the right path as you really do sound like a nice person who does not deserve this and just wants to be happy.

I think your going to have to really stand your ground now on the money situation, if you then see her not happy or pulling tricks get out as quick as you can.

There are plenty more fish in the sea especially here in LOS.

Exactly. You sound a good guy and you're taking all the hard knocks on the chin.

But listen, don't be a punch bag! :D

All the best and good luck for the future :o

I really don't understand why everybody is feeling sorry for the OP; he started it by giving out of his free will money to the family; not just sin sot but while staying there threw in a tractor and a motorbike in the mix. That must have been hundreds of thousands of Baht of investment.

Then, without obvious reason while leaving for his home country he put in the brakes and is refusing money. Expectations will have been raised, plans be made, and a minor thing like a sick cow lets him throw an (for the Thai side) absolutely unexplainable and unreasonable fit. As the saying goes: 'asking costs nothing'.

So very often I read on this forum that the Thais are masterminds in pulling money from foreigners pockets; I actually have not seen that many real clever scams -- but much more often foreigners who literally forced money onto their spouses to 'buy' their love or 'rescue' them from their 'hard life'.

Most people who come to me to cry themselves out after such a story I ask, if they were not happy in their relationship and felt loved. Mostly, the answer is yes, and bingo, that is exactly what they paid for.

Normally money can't buy love, so they actually got a pretty good deal and should see it as such.

Your age, her age? Thank you.

Anyway, if you love her, give the relationship a chance, try to talk to her, that you have to be on the brakes with the spending-the whole world is on the brakes!

If she is reasonable and likes-loves you also, she will try to understand. If not, she has to suck another body.

I know what I am talking about, I am the typical butterfly and to keep the mia luang (one child together) quiet, I gave her money, borrowed it to her, short before she left me she took a big loan on the car I had purchased, which was in her name (6 years ago, i had only a Tourist Visa).

Will I get some money back? Not easy!

The mia neu, (upgraded herself to mia luang) bought a leasing car, paid 1 year leasing herself in the front and ment to me,

if you not pay than in a year the monthly installments, I go back to bar and will look for the money there.

I have two young children with her, so I pay?

Ting tong are they and ting tong are we, many of us and I!

The OP should lay it our for his wife something like this:

We need to keep our money for our life together. We need to think about building a house, educating our kids, etc., etc. I don't mind helping your family occasionally, in an emergency, but that help is limited to the health of your mother and father. Miscellaneous relatives, friends, livestock and burned down houses are not my concern.

Make her understand your way of thinking and don't accept the "Thai way" argument. You are the one earning the money and she needs to accept that you want to build a future for the two of you. That's the way to make the marriage work. Otherwise, there will be no end to requests for "help".

Good luck.

Contrary to popular Falang wisdom, Thai bovines do from time to time need a veterinarian's hand and aren't blessed with eternal life.

I think that the Khwai has made an udderly good point here.
