Thai’s talking crap in Pattaya

As you know I’ve lived mostly in Chiang Mai, might not know that I spent a year in Nakhon Pathom a few hours out of Bangkok but nearly every year since I was a kid I’ve been coming to Pattaya. Some people say that Thailand is changing maybe it is or maybe I’m just seeing Thailand differently than I used to. Perhaps it’s the fluency in the language that enables me to see things for how they really are. When you’re sixteen roaming Pattaya by yourself with no language skills everyone seems happy and having a good time. You’re young and Thai people adore young Farang.

thai people talking crap

That said would it really be fair for me to say that Pattaya or Thailand has changed? Hell the whole world has changed and it’s changing every minute. So maybe it’s true, people in Chiang Mai are grumpy, People in Bangkok are selfish and  people in Pattaya are really angry! I’m not talking about the Farang. Though you do have a bunch of bozos on Walking street who walk past you giving you a deep shoulder you know it’s on purpose, the bozos with their shirts off pounding their chests with their other 20 derelict friends whom also have their shirts off shouting at another smaller pack of yobbos with shirts off. It really is a circus.

Guys go all caveman style on walking street like nowhere else in Thailand. How many shirtless bozos are there walking around Cowboy in comparison? But I’m not talking about wanna be 1%’s because it’s just all built up testosterone that they’ll soon release on some browny from Isaan. It’s more the Thai people in this town that are so angry.

I recently bought the new Samsung Galaxy S4 which I wish came out before I got to Pattaya this year because there has been some really good ones. Pretty much any Mcdonalds you walk into in Pattaya you don’t have to wait long before you hear the staff talking shit about customers who walk in. Anything they don’t understand you’ll hear shit out of their mouth they’d never say to a Thai person. For a country built on respect there seems to be little here.

Don’t eat junk food no worries, just go get a drink and sit down at a bar and you won’t have to sit long before hearing some birds talking shit. Things get lost in translation a lot here but the normal calm and understanding Thai comes to Pattaya and turns into a raging bitch. Take for example when i went to this bar the other week with me mate from Australia. Sit down in front of this fat bitch I thought she’d just move but instead try’s to do a negotiation to buy a drink for a girl. My mates like “no no” i want to talk to the girl. Wow she blows up I thought she was going to smack my mate. It seriously was nothing to get angry about.

You could also go to Alcatraz and get absolutely abused by girls if you refuse to by them a drink. I’m sorry but if I don’t want to buy you a drink I don’t have to and that means bugger off not hang around swearing at me as if I don’t know what you’re saying. If you weren’t so angry maybe someone would by you a drink.

Back at the bar again I sit down with another mate of mine we’re just chatting not really interested in the girls. But they are making small talk so I’m just like “errr errr err” you know. She comes back raising her voice telling me it’s impolite to say “errr errr errr”. But not 20 seconds before that she’s saying goo this meung that in clear ear shot of me. I’m so sick of these sluts trying to educate me, especially when they have a mouth like a sailor

So let that be a lesson guys saying err is not polite. Any two bit bar whore with two bastard children will tell you so. Only in Thailand can you go to a brothel and have a prostitute educate you on manners and proper speach!

      Thank bro, I just tell it how i see it.

    Good rant Chris, I’m sure it’s quite true as well. I don’t speak Thai but can read peoples faces, body language reasonably well, & can often surmise that they’re talking in a negative way about the farang.

    The point about the shirtless, beer guzzling morons-often from the UK is spot on, all they seem to want to do is get pissed up & bang some LBFM.
    It’s no wonder they are despised!

      I don’t understand why people take their shirts off anyway, none of these guys have got out of the pool.

    Well, what do expect? You expected that low cost prostitutes would be well-mannered, educated and polite women? You need to get out of these bars, man, it’s taking away your touch with reality.
    I think most Thai are polite, but the exceptions seem to gather in Pattaya (same is true for farang).

    • Chris May 21, 2013 at 1:53 am #

      Lol don’t worry i’m back in Chiang Mai away from it now. But really my point was these bitches were trying to tell me to be polite and well mannered and for simply saying “err” come on….

      Agreed. The bar life is not reality for anyone other than the gutter whores who work in them. You’re dealing with uneducated farm girls who know nothing of the world, their own country, or even their own culture or religion. But you won’t find a shortage of ignorant whores doing a little prayer before she goes on stage in a desperate attempt to have good luck so that she can sell her well used and probably STD filled Siamese slit. They are not even good whores. If you have any common sense whatsoever, you can only be around ignorance like that for so long before it wears on you. I used to feel bad when I would hear about these girls being sold and abused, but after being here a while I’d say 1/2 of them had it coming and the other 1/2 are too dumb to know they got a raw deal.

        So some people are less important in the world – is that what you’re saying?

    I’ve been to Pattaya twice in the last month and yeah I noticed somewhat of a gloomy vibe. When I first arrived I had only been in TL 10 days and I was like “This is the land of smiles wtf?” I had just come from BK where everyone was smiling but here when I got to my hotel the clerk met me with a big frown. I hear it’s the economy, its down. Walk in the bars and few are very full. Girls can make almost as much money in legit jobs now. I think it’s pulling them out of there. Was it the same 14 years ago before the Asian currency crises?

    “I don’t understand why people take their shirts off anyway, none of these guys have got out of the pool”

    I’m aslo love another country and care about it.

    For example : I don’t throw away rubbish on street or the side of the road and separate it every time before throw away. (in the bin)
    not matter people see me or not will do the same at least can help our world.

    Of course I clean the bin for not smell bad and not look dirty. I wnat to see it some how clean.The bin not mean must dirty.

    Have a nice trip to Chang Mai and safety CHIRS !!!

      What a fantastic attitude you have. Honestly most Thai’s are not like this, I was reffering to the lowest of the low when it comes to Pattaya. I made it safe to Chiang Mai also thanks!

  6. Bam May 21, 2013 at 8:16 pm #

    So Sorry!!! I typed your name wrong.

    Pattaya is a sewer. It is where the worst foreigners meet head to head with the worst Thais. Not much else you can say about the place these days.

    I don’t know if things have changed or I am just paying more attention but hanging around in Cowboy and Pattaya recently, I was struck with how many gloomy and sour faces were around. You’d see this girl smiling to get you to buy something, but catch her off guard and she has the look of someone very jaded and bitter. I saw this everywhere I went in bars. The facial expression goes from huge smile to bitter and resentful in a microsecond. Have you noticed this change too or has it always been like this?

    • Chris August 4, 2013 at 6:29 am #

      I too have noticed the same thing. Compared to 15-20 years ago the scene is so much different. Girls just arn’t as happy as they once were. 3000 baht usually puts a smile back on their face though ;)

    Came here the first time 11 years ago. 29 now. I don’t know if I was just to young and drunk to not see it or I have just been here too long. But times they are a changen.
