Police arrest Khao Sarn restaurant manager who punched a British tourist

Recommended Posts

Then pay for a drink become a customer.. or are you such a cheap guy that you want to solve your problems at an other guys cost.

So an other guy with a business must oblige you because you have a problem and are to cheap to buy a drink and become a customer.

It's funny to see a Dutch guy accuse an Irish guy of being a cheapskate!! I thought you cloggies where infamous throughout the world for counting every penny you spend....555! In Ireland we don't charge people for having a leak in their pub as we are friendly, unlike in the NL's where one has taxes for everything, incl. toilet tax!! thumbsup.gif

Oh your Irish that explains it all, I thought i was talking to someone with a brain. You lot is well known to consume loads of alcohol and I bet in your bar your were your own best customer cheesy.gif

Let's continue with generalising for a bit. Let's not start about intelligence, lol. I lived in the NL's for a long time and I have to say that you lot are the most childish men I've ever met who talk nothing but shallow nonsense e.g. football, all day long. At least in Ireland you can have an intelligent conversation with anyone about anything, even sober people, 555! No seriously, a Dutch bodybuilder who is calling the Irish stupid, that's hilarious. What have the Dutch ever accomplished besides building dikes and canals and robbing other countries blind? Look what you did to the Indonesians. The NL's is responsible for the apartheid and segregation in Southern Africa. I could go on for hours. The good thing about us 'drinking' Irish is that we are loved throughout the world for our culture of friendliness and warm heartedness and that we have never conquered any other countries and of course our literature, music and great whiskey's. You guys still can't win the world cup even though you've been in the final 3 times clap2.gif

There is lots of places in UK that would say something if you walked in to use the bathroom without being a paying customer... (Pubs/Bars etc) Commonly referred to as a Mc $ hit in Roger Smellies Profarnious, as Macca Ds is apparently the easiest ablutions to use for free without hindrance or payment required

There are no public toilets on Kaosan Road. It is a major meeting point and hanging out place for thousands of dirty tourists wearing parachute pants and braiding their hair because they think That makes them look like a SE Asian tourist. If there are no toilets, where do the Thai think...oh, right...thinking hard mak mak.

I guess you haven't been over to Kao Sarn for a while then. You will mostly see middle class couples and couples with kids who look very clean with their socks, shoes, iPhones and credit cards.

What an arrogant and moronic thing to say; 'dirty tourists wearing parachute pants and braiding their hair'. How would you describe the tourists on Silom or Sukumwit? dirty old men hovering around go-go bars looking for cheap sex with ladyboys?

Parachute pants in youth or Chang wife beaters in pervy retirees. Thailand gets what it's attracting. 75% scum mongers cheapos sextourists wannabe alternativos and plain morons who can afford a plane ticket but don't have a brain.

And for Gods sake the guy had to take a leak, what ever happened to being nice or is it only take take take in this world. All this could have been avoided if the guy had just left the young man take a leak. He may have then sat in the bar all night drinking with his mates.

You you get a constant stream of people just going to use the toilets, which isnt very nice for customers

That's what you THINK. It's a f**ing toilet and doesn't cost a business owner anything to let passers by come in and use the bathroom. I've been to many places where you don't have to buy something to take a leak and I haven't seen this "constant streem of people" that you refer to. It's a figment of your imagination or supposition.
Not 100% correct. These establishments have to pay for water, electricity, cleaning staff, rent, etc. People walking in off the street using the facilities aren't contributing anything to the owners expenses in the form of purchased food or drinks.

In most places there isn't a "stream of people" walking in, but in tourist hotspots, like Khaosan Road, that can be a completely different matter.

I've sat in restaurants there from time to time and yes, quite a few of these cheap skates do walk in to use the toilets, leave their empty water/beer bottles (purchased at 7/11) on the tables, put out their fags in the ashtrays etc.

All of which has to be cleaned up by restaurant staff...

I'm not in the hospatility industry, but when I see this kind of behaviour, then I sincerely symphatise with the restaurant/pub owners.

Note the date of this article, it is becoming more and more common ..

I have been in the hospitality business, two restaurants in Melbourne. The first one right in the middle of 5 Pubs/Nightclubs - Ironically right below me, in the car park level was a small Pommy Pub which turned into a nightclub during the evenings. You couldn't swing a cat in their toilets and by 2200 they would be a filthy disgrace and you wouldn't go near the place even if you could get past the druggies.

I didn't set up my Restaurant to be a Public Lavatory. Especially for those ferals.

Say what you like, but unless you have been there and done that, you don't know. Particularly if you are so naive to think it doesn't cost you. Not only money, but good paying customers.

He was not allowed to use toilet, because he did not spend any money in that restaurant ??

So tourists are welcome only if they spend their money ? Otherwise ?

What police care here is an escalated simple problem that ended to one man punched in the face. To police restaurant should welcome tourists, not only tourists money.

I understand why police arrested the manager.

This does seem an odd story. Not because of the Brit's behaviour. Lots of tourist <deleted> on Khoa San. Also, not because of the Thai managers behaviour. That seems about par for the course on Khoa San Road. It really does seem like a publicity stunt. bad behaviour from tourists and locals happens a lot of Khoa San.

There's that speedboat incident that happened the other day where a tourist died. I read about it in the UK press a daybefore the Thai press.

If you want good publicity, just be honest about things. Shit happens. Crack down on criminals and take care of your tourists. No matter who is in the wrong people will generally see it as an individual case and indiviadual circumstances.

During four months in Thailand, (hoping to return soon), I never even bothered going the the old hippy street Khao San Road. I doubt that I missed much.

It was disgusting behaviour by the Brits. But the manager should not have punched him either. They should have hold him, call the police and make him pay for his drink.

Thailand needs to promote Jiujitsu as the national sport. So that instead of throwing Muay Thai kicks n punches when tourist or customers misbehave.

They can instead learn to do locks n submissions to restrain the ppl who misbehave 1st till the police n authorities arrive.

I am thinking the guy ordered a "bucket"

..which many vendors in that area have promotion for what is supposedly a strong mix of spirits in a..

err..bucket..meant for 3 or 4 persons.

But he was a smart arse and ordered this with no intention of paying for it,

just to circumvent the business owner, who rightly expected some sort of compensation for services normally rendered to paying customers

som num na for getting a small slap.

Actually i cant believe he agreed to go to the police after a minor slap he deserved

The pom was a smart arse and deserved what he got. The patron should be the one prosecuted.

I agree, back in the day the Pom would have been transported. Making him a Pom Pom

There is not much to say about the matter here. are you a jerk, you get treated like a jerk. Englishmen are not the most polite people on this earth

You should qualify that, 'some Englishmen are not the most polite people on earth' we aren't all chavs from the slums, having said that i must admit that there are an awful lot about.

The Manager should have made a citizens arrest and called the police. You can't go around punching people!
