Yes, there are some bad examples to be seen: shouting at check-out girls because they do not speak English, unwillingness to accept immigration rules etc.  Yesterday, I went past one of the longer established farang bars in Korat. The clientele did not look too appetizing.

Luckily I checked this before posting. The predictive text changed Korat to Koran and farang became farming.

because we have all been degraded by the arrival of this new breed, this bottom of the heap arrival in Thailand . . It now goes in declining order, rich, poor then FARANG.

I have certainly noticed the change in farangs that come here since my time in Thailand. A different breed could be right, or is it the money factor which changes lifestyle, like the man in the vid  koratfart.com potless.

During a visit to immig in the 90 days office, only this week, whilst waiting for my turn, a guy from the uk blurted out for all to hear, why are we here every 90 days we got our 1 yr visa, this is unnecessary. needless to say the staff raised their eyebrows, making them bias towards farangs maybe by classing them all the same.

the same guy, a thai lady said to her farang husband i'm just popping to the loo, the guy butted in, there's no loo roll in there, Ha! Ha!. How coarse.

Yes i know there not all the same but there is an increasing amount of guys like it. Some guys even try to change forum rules, what you agreed to when you signed up.  Rules r rules, you eat humble pie, there is an alternative. ;D

then there was 3 :)

Back on track. we all know thai women are the best in the world. But why do so many farangs choose to settle here with a thai girl. one of the reasons could be their relationship back home has gone stale as been together too many years, take each other for granted making one feel unloved or even unappreciated.

then on arrival to Thailand with a vast choice too choose a partner from. pretty, younger, girl hanging on your arm. All the time not knowing about the troubles and dangers, let alone the duties you will have to perform, NO i don't mean in bed, i mean her family and all that having to do, what you knew nothing about, before you came to settle here.

i knew nothing when i come here about,  can't own land, getting a visa, money in a thai bank and all that stipulations that come with being a farang/expat. i was told by my now wife she would take care of me and so would her family. But she wouldn't go against her families wishes up until a few years ago. so you won't feel like in charge at all, as she will get pushed by her family into making decisions. being the reason a lot of relationships don't go the distance.

many a Western guy has fallen under the magical spell of a Thai girl, could be the most wonderful experience you will have in your life, or on the other hand turn out to be your worst nightmare.

My personal opinion is that if a thai girl has had her heart broken by a thai man, left with the kids to support, you will stand a better chance to build a relationship with her, if you are not a fool but kind hearted and can show some love to her kids. the upper hand you have in being in a country where no one knows you is you can always re-invent yourself, like some do. Some of us are lucky to still have the mind of a 25 year old, albeit that it is trapped inside the body of an older man. But none of us like getting old, so we must live the life we have, not the life we imagined.

Article below from stickmanbangkok

And you don’t speak a word of Thai.
======================
Just passing through or only spending a few days in the area (as I and Stick were doing) is OK, but if you are transferring large sums of money from home and investing life savings or retirement money in dubious projects in this foreign land, foreign language, foreign culture and FOREI . . . ok, you get the idea . . . you’d clearly better watch out!

Such is the unfortunate position in which I found many expats in Isaan. Babes in arms, lambs to the slaughter. All in varying degrees of being hung out to dry – yet many, in their innocence, displaying a supreme confidence that this ‘new-found love of their life’ will successfully lead them through this disaster zone . . . this graveyard . . . full of shipwrecks, broken hearts and shattered dreams to some kind of nirvana, a new life in this, their adopted promised land full of milk and honey.

Because in the main these guys don’t speak a word of Thai – with no intention to learn any, either. They don’t even see why they should! Consequently they are shuffled around like dogs on a lead, in the majority of cases being ‘looked after’ by a dark-faced stocky ex rice-planter/picker (with a good heart) and end up spending their days huddled together in cheap bars telling each other how their respective countries have gone to the dogs.

Nah mate. That was you.

Many can’t take or get used to the heat, dress inappropriately, only shave every couple of days and generally dress in drab greys and browns (probably as those colours don’t show the dirt). The only people that will acknowledge them, the only ‘friends’ they seem to have are the taxi drivers, loose women and any other individuals ‘on the make’. Can’t you guys wake up to this for God’s sake?

Look, I’m not saying it’s all like this and I’m certain I can speak on behalf of the ones who really are trying to fit in, adapt and conform. I ask you, what kind of message are our Thai hosts receiving from the growing numbers of dead-beat foreigners now appearing all over the country and mainly in the sleazy areas of town? What opinions are forming in their very CLASS AND STATUS CONSCIOUS minds?

It’s been said that there is no middle class in Thailand. Just rich and poor. Well, add another category to that with the arrival of farang. I’m serious now, and it gives me no pleasure to have to report this. On the contrary I wish it were not true, because we have all been degraded by the arrival of this new breed, this bottom of the heap arrival in Thailand . . It now goes in declining order, rich, poor then FARANG.

Now i could only wash one hand at a time, to wash my right hand, i put my left hand to the right of the sink, over the sensor, put my right hand under my left arm and with a bit of a stretch managed to get my right hand wet. job done.

Thaiga, I think you will make a good companion for Hendrik Groen. These places are not run for your convenience. Employees come first and you must not disturb their activities.

the mall that thinks it's a museum

Oh! i nearly forgot and just to add insult to injury about t/21 the mall that thinks it's a museum i wanted a pea whilst wandering around in there, i found the sign toilets whoopee, down a narrow winding twisting corridor, ahh! found it, as i open the door, the place was like it had never been used, a spotless, shining and well looked after by the lady cleaner who was mopping the floor.

As i walked to the urinals she followed behind cleaning where i had walked, as i stood to pee i could feel the swishing of the mop around my feet and in between my legs. at this stage i started to feel uncomfortable, like i shouldn't be there. i thought oh god i hope i don't splash on the floor, she'll go app shite  :-[ as i shook the drips off she murmured urre, was she clearing her throat i thought, or did she see my whopping parts  ;D

ok over to the wash basins to clean my hands, as i walked her eyes followed me, she had one hand on the top of the mop handle the other on her hip, glaring at me as i fondled the tap which never worked, i moved to another sink, twisted the tap left n right, pushed down pulled up, nah no water.

Noone she said and pointed to a sign that said sensor, there was a small hole to the right of the sink on the wall, i touch the sensor with my right hand, out come the water, great found it, but when you took your hand off the sensor the water automatically cut out so by the time your hands were under the tap it shut off. i started to get the giggles at this stage and wondered who thought of this great idea, did they even test it.

Now i could only wash one hand at a time, to wash my right hand, i put my left hand to the right of the sink, over the sensor, put my right hand under my left arm and with a bit of a stretch managed to get my right hand wet. job done.

wonder how the women get on no loo roll - stamp there feet i suppose ;)

HELLO the other poster, i was a bit unfair on my judgement t/21 as i never went any further than london floor but after reading your post i'm glad i never ventured further. I did hear they wanted a walkway to join up with big C but big C were not having that, there was 2 men with flags outside in the road stopping the traffic so people could cross from one store to the other, very primitive i thought Considering the money already spent on the place.

My main object was to visit foodland as i was looking for greenes gingo biloba tea, which i found in big C in the end.

GINGO BILOBA

Yes it's as good as they say, do you remember The 39 steps. Ha! Ha!

Is Ginkgo Biloba the Miracle Memory Vitamin? (Mental Health Guru)

T21, yes we have been twice. The first time was just as you described, no customers, confusing layout. The second time we just ended up circulating around the car park and finding nowhere. We have not been back since.
