cheap charlies  Twatpacker Express

why are some called cheap charlies,are they mean or maybe they just no have.in an attempt to define the term “Cheap Charlie” which sounds a bit of an insult,but is it,just opposite to a big spender. many times the farang will call other farangs Cheap Charlie.a cheap Charlie does not want a good deal but want two times the value for nothing. a bar girl might call you a Cheap Charlie as one last attempt make you pay too much.

GOOD NEWS for the cheap charlies,  A new Cheap Charlie bus service where Twatpackers can travel from Khaosan Road to Suvarnabhumi Airport. just 60 baht. If you plan on using the service in the future, remember to come prepared with nose and ear plugs. The bus is gonna stink of sweaty twatpackers and the
ballsh*t-meter will be in the red with all their worldly tales.i was an airline pilot once,i was in the sas before that

ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

What is a cheap charlie, if you don't think whatever is on offer is worth the value to what's being asked, then you don't buy it, yes you might get called a cheap charlie, better than getting mugged off.
You often hear thai people speak, Farang good or Cheap charlie, the good farang is the one that hands over his money on demand but the cheap charlie is the one that refuses to do so. Maybe he has worked hard all his life and is not throwing his money away on people he doesn't really know. So he avoids being taken to the cleaners, does that make him a bad guy, a cheap charlie, or a sensible guy. not a mug.

The saying came from vietnam from the war days and was usually directed at the GIs that would try and get laid for a chewing gum. you hear it in pattya and the likes of.

Now if you don't like being called a cheap charlie or kee-ne-el then go and ring all the bells in the bars and you will be called, farang jai dee or charles until your money runs out ;D

RIP Cheap Charlie’s, Shame to see it go, been there about 34 years, The legendary dive bar is being closed down for urban development. Very popular with expats was cheap charlies, the patrons of the bar have been 80 percent foreign and 20 percent Thai. A humble little bar that people were happy to go, condo here we come.

This reminds me when car dealers have promotions where they give a rebate on the purchase of a new car...say 1,500 dollars, but then increase the invoice cost of the car by 2,500 dollars.  The customer thinks he's getting a good deal.  No bar fine, but the cost for short time and long time will increase.  Just watch.
