White guy gets beat up in Pattaya Video
The old saying "you break it you pay for it" is something I've known since I was a kid. This is how I just thought society worked in general. So when I saw this video of this Farang guy getting beat up in Pattaya that's the first thing that went into my head.
While I'm not a psychologist an If I try to understand the Thai mentality about beating up this guy. If I worked there or around there saw some big fat Farang screaming at my boss or co-workers sure I'd wanna go kick this guy out too. But because I'm Thai and lack the confidence to do anything by myself of course I'd have my friends there too to make me feel stronger. I don't really care about repercussions because you can't make me pay for your medical bills because I have no money. It's not really fair to seek damages from the bar owner because this is Thailand if you started firing people for bad behavior no one would work for you.
When you break something you pay for it. I was in a nightclub in Chiang Mai had a glass on the table, the table was next to the bass. The table was literally shaking and I had to hold the table so the glass wouldn't fall off. Of course it did though and I had to pay, since it was in my possession it's my responsibility can't argue with that. But then if they charged me a cleanup fee I'd be annoyed.
So this is the story that the news sites are going to run and all the Farang are either going to think like I or be completely outraged. But will the News sites tell you what the Thai's think? Doubt even Thai Visa will so I'll translate some of the comments so you know what Thai's think of this story.
User 1: If everything in the news report is a trust story about him not wanting to pay then he got what he deserved. Some Farang are mischievous and look down on Thai people.
User 2: I like what I see
User 3: He deserves it.
User 1: This bastard Farang deserves what he gets. Farang are no different to some Thai people. If you've never met a bad farang you would know.
User 2: Most Farang are bad, they like going out like this, good Farang go to the Andaman because it's peaceful and quiet and known for tourism
User 3: He deserves it............he should get kicked
The real story apparently is this guy broke the cue failed to pay, got into an argument with the lady owner pushed her then threw some bananas at her before the guys started beating on him. If you ask me, I'm with the Thai's, the guy deserved it. The two guys who beat on him are now in jail on 50,000 baht bail, no mention if this guy ended up paying for the cue or not. Stupid all round.
