Legless farang burger seller wins the hearts of thais
« on: January 18, 2017, 01:33:38 PM »
Thai's are well impressed with a farang guy and has stole their hearts, he has lost both legs and still has the power to carry on, he sets up a burger stall in Bangkok to raise money for his family. Gary a former boxer from london and once an airline pilot was out running one day, he fell onto a railway track, losing both his legs.



As usual the farang critics are out on the social media already, with crap like, does he have a work permit and so on, these guys need to learn to get a life, i hope the authorities will turn a blind eye and let the guy try and earn a few bht. Good luck m8.

a good guy,he wins the hearts of the thai people,regardless of the circumstances,he maintains the faith and courage to march ahead. but the farang who speaks (has he got a work permit and such) how pathetic,those i have met most have no manners, when it comes to "please and thankyou"

when i grew up we looked up to the farang,have they changed or have i found out what most are really like.

post has touched my heart,thanks thiga.

It's Thaiga not thiga, unless you go back to the old Koratfarang days where my nic was thiga.
If you ever viewed that forum, there you would see some rude farang posts that you wouldn't believe, how did they get away with it.

OH! the memories.
Johnnie F. & Baby farts will remember them days, Sadly a good few decent guys have passed away since. R.I.P.

Well the rest on koratfarang just disappeared or are they using another nic  ;)  los i think went back to uk. mypenry, Mypenry got most of the stick as he would post things like, What is your favorite colour, one member called rayshell would give him a good pasting in a thread, i heard r/hell met with a nasty car accident years ago. Then there was ajax really insulting guy, in fact he's a member of this forum, thiga the tosser was his actual words to me. (But not face to face)

All the so called villains (jerks) were very paly with each other and if you didn't fit in, you'd soon be out. The admin lost control.

BUT...
Before you judge a person by his/her post. When reading the post, you never know the posters situation, one poster on k/farang was told get a life, sitting at the keyboard posting loads of rubbish all day long everyday on the forum. Little did they know that forum was the guys life, as being in a wheelchair, housebound  looking at four walls, with only his computer as a friend.

Certainly made me think before passing judgement on a post.

PS: Why would anyone (Koratfarang) wanna clone it, i'll never know. There is a prize for the best answer :spin

Was it a big mistake for the Handicapped burger man to advertise his events on Facebook, He now says his life has collapsed after all the social media attention he has been getting and has now shut down his stall in Bangkok. He says been verbally attacked by other farangs. He said that people were talking so bad about him and he just wanted to make people happy and asks to be left alone
 reports dailynews.co.th

It was just way too much for him, i imagine he just wanted to show people he was equal to them, even without his legs. But a few nasty people want to hurt him with bad words. Not thinking of his family friends and children by talking how they do.

Bullying had become a group dynamic there. Many who disbehaved there were just "dragged along", thought bullying was hip, because others kept on bullying without admin setting them a limit, in some cases even keeping the attacked for defending himself instead of taking action against the attack or preventing the instigation.

but if you had the chance to get to know the "fighters" a little better, most of them were completely different in "civil life", actually quite nice guys. But the group dynamic or "unlimited freedom" of that forum did make them expose themselves as idiots. FB has similar dynamics.

Cloning a forum with bullying as group dynamic? I guess the cloner thought the bullying group was standard for our expat society and hoped to cash in on that.

Were they Barstool Philosophers ;) here's part of an article i found in pattayaone.news.

The Forum Griper

The real humdinger in this category though is T/Visa, which has managed to maintain the highest levels of pathos for many years now. You enter the TV forums and in your mind you are stepping into a badly run old people’s home where there is a pervading aroma of stale urine and neglected pensioners.

As with most of these forums, there are definite cliques running amok and new members will show any naiveté at their peril as no quarter is given. The real danger of any of these forums is that they can suck you into a black hole of often meaningless debate to the detriment of anything you had planned to do that day.

Does he have a work permit? 

On a serious note. I can never understand why so many people openly share very personal information about themselves on Facebook, Twitter, instagram, etc. WTF?  Here I am shopping for oranges.  Here's a picture of my home (with gps tags embedded in the photo).  I've never really understood the concept of these social networking gigs.....But I will say, that little Jew Zuckerberg, made a ton of money off of people's stupidity. High Five to him.

Classic how they market it too... "Keep in contact with your family and old friends."   If I want to contact my family, I send and email or pick up the phone and make a God Da*m phone call.  I don't need facebook to do this for me, while at the same time advertising my personal info to the entire internet. 

I do have a facebook account and the profile is 100% fiction.  I have it because it allows me to view facebook accounts of the nimrods who are dumb enough to post all their personal info about themselves.

Yes B/F use it to your advantage, way 2 go  8)

They said it would never catch on

Facebook is a way of self promoting ones self when one has very little to promote, look at what i have got, ain't i lucky, look at me, when really most don't have nothing. People that do have something seem rarely to advertise it.

Some have the art of The Art of Tooting their Own Horn Without Blowing It. but that's
completely acceptable online today, but not in real life. Although we are in the age of the selfie
there's a big difference between simply being on social media and using it well.

I hear Facebook is testing an option called Highlight that lets you pay a fee to have one of your posts appear to more friends. IMO they could be playing with fire as the service has always been free for users and that could be a huge turn off, especially to its younger and less well off users who couldn’t afford to :-[

"facebook where everybody is everybodys friend but you do not know each other"

hahahhaha  So true!

It's one big cluster f*k. I love how facebook will suggest and asks if you know "these" people and then shows you their profiles.  Typically it's because it looks at the ip address and your location, then searches for other dirtbags in your area.....but sometimes you might get lucky and it will suggest a smoking hot Thai woman.  You never know.

You might even get luckier and get a sandwich. The last time I checked my fictional facebook account, it came up with several people that i actually do know, here in Korat.  These are the ones, who start drinking at 10:00 am in the morning, and talk excessively, about the, "Good old days."  Coffee my friends.  Nevermind the beer Leo.

there is nothing wrong with a couple of old boys having a leo or two at ten o/clock in the morning, talking about the good old days. after all they may have worked all their lives,come here to retire and live how they want to. a lot of expats are left alone to their own devices while the
wife/girlfriend is off somewhere,should they sit at home alone.

now the secret drinker who is in denial is the one with the problem,maybe Koratbob will step in here with some info. on that one.

The uk pubs are no different, golden oldies sitting in the corner with half a pint of whatever, reminiscing about the old days, bless em, looking for a bit of company, better than sitting home alone, why should they drink coffee.

The problem here is some have a leo to many and get on the internet when they get home, only to embarrass themselves. :drink
