Thread: What gets really old for you in Thailand?

  1. #1

    What gets really old for you in Thailand?

    Does anything in particular get under your skin in Thailand or is it all rose colored glasses for you?

    I get tired of all the farang expert gurus that think they know everything about Thailand after 4 months in country.

    Add to the list!

    Trash.

    I'm used to just about everything but Trash:

    Weird traffic.
    Shoes left in front of the door.
    Weather
    Electricity bills out the roof - everything but Trash

    Oh, dunno re the 'fake' smiles.

    Depends on whether or not you're trying to do the "Walk of Shame" as you bring your Cowboy or Nana sweetheart to the elevators and hence to your room! 55555

    People on the street here are like anywhere else - they don't have time to make eye-contact and smile to every swinging-dick sex tourist that lurks throughout Sukhumvit.

    Farangs who do nothing but complain, but they are mostly on the Internet. I meet very few in real life.

    The lighting off of M-80 firecrackers at certain times after the farmers have planted their rice.

    To scare away birds. It's annoying...

    Stores like homepro that have 2 employees per isle and want to help you. Real culture shock after being in mega stores overseas that have no employees. LOL
