QQing on KF
« on: January 10, 2010, 11:23:10 PM »
I have to admit, I've never seen such a rampant display of QQing in all my life on KF.  If it's not the bad meal one had at the Sima Thani, it's the issue of not being able to get a letter of residency at immigration because of the ALLEGED behavior of one individual.  Yeah right.  Immigration is really going to punish all the expats in Korat because of one person.  One person says something and they all follow like lost sheep, QQing as much as possible.  Try and guess the average age of some of these QQers.  Shocking.  We are living in a city with some of the world's oldest teenagers.

The rumours of Korat immigration rounding up all the elderly farangs in Korat and executing them are greatly exagerated, although I did hear they were going to televise it on channel 3 for late night viewing :)

BabyFart, I'm a casual reader of KF and agree with you totally. I saw it as a witch hunt. It reminds me of school yard bullying where the "in crowd" like to pick on the "outsider". Maybe there are guys living in Korat with teenage kids (farang), and it's the kids that are writing on the forum and acting, well, like teenagers. That would make more sense, but unfortunately it would be more accurate to guess these witch hunters are retired 60yr olds and up..Sad to think people can reach that age and still have the mentality of 13yr olds.

What gets posted on that thread about Chokchai Immigration Office has already reached what is called "defamation". What are people insinuating when they say the officers claim not having change? I'd say the clear meaning of the officers' answer is to give them 1.900 baht instead of two one-thousand baht bills. What's the use of complaining afterwards, if one waived the 100 baht change instead of saying "Ok, return those 2,000 bahtfor now. I'll step outside to the next shop or bank  to get change to give you the exact amount. Please wait a moment!", ? ;)

Taser, I've actually met some of these people in real life and they act totally different when you see them face to face.  It's almost like nothing ever happened.  Hiding behind a keyboard gives some of them a sense of safety and security without the confrontation.  Let me give you an example.  There is a user here who tries to make attacks at me.  He's even made attacks in reference to physical appearances of people (This is usually the type of behavior exhibited by an 8 year old)....yet  this person is probably in his early 60's and a teacher.  Can you believe that?  I saw him a few weeks ago at a local restaurant and as usual he smiles and says hello to me like nothing has taken place.  Within a day or so after that, he comes back here and tries to insult me.  :D.  Even his fellow co-workers have given him the nickname as "Korat's Oldest Teenager."  I guess some people get older, but refuse to grow up.

Turdburner...Love that nickname  ;D.  I couldn't agree with you more.  When I go to an ATM I never take out an even amount of money.. say 5,000 baht.  I'll take out 4,900 baht just so I can have some small change. Aside from a 7-11, try purchasing a bottle of water at a local mom and pop shop and pay for it with a 1,000 note. "No have change" is the typical outcome. 

I feel sorry for that Andy guy getting crucified by everyone...most of them "heard" the story from someone who in turn heard it from someone else.  For sake, give the poor guy a break.  I've never had a problem getting a letter of residency and neither did my colleague who also got his a few weeks back when everyone on KF was saying you couldn't get one.  I'd rather have no information than information that is inaccurate. 

Someone should start a new section on a forum and call it the "Piss, Whine, and Moan" section.  Really, some of these poor souls talk about how wonderful Korat is and that there is never a dull moment here...how beautiful it is...so much to do here.  Bull..t.  Just take a look at how much time some of these folks spend on the forums, checking them every hour, some never logging off, never leaving the house except to drink a coffee at The Mall.  Maybe, someone should start a bingo night or something for these poor saps.  I don't know.. maybe some board games or something would be a step in the right direction to get them unglued from the monitor.
