I don't know what you are getting so riled up about. I only said that cooking is a trade, which it is.

I have worked with skilled, intelligent on task people all my life and I have no problems with cooks.

Jai yen, jai yen.

 

PS I was apparently responding to 2 different posters. Seems adammike is the one getting upset for what I don't know.

 

BTW we didn't have a microwave.

I am not upset,why do you think I am?

 I live in America , would you say the overwhelming majority of that 66 million could be 30 million Hispanics going home to visit? Or like me when I go to Canada 5 times a year ? America is a beautiful country most people I speak to have never been abroad , Mexico or the Caribbean at best .

I worked at 5 different colleges and universities, and most people traveled, at least to Europe.  All of my friends and family have also, so I guess it depends on what you do, and who you surround yourself with.  I lived there 49 years

Less than a thousand visitors from Oceania in 2016? That doesn't seem right.

I think, it says (in) 'Thousands', so more than 900,000 visitors from OZ, NZ, and ??

The Indians and Arabs are here because they can't get it in their own country and many Thai women in Pattaya complain that Indians want a girl to accept being tag-teamed by like 6 guys for short time price etc...no wonder all the decent looking ones are on the Internet now instead of the bars. As for the Chinese, well...no need to say anything really.

Anyone want to add to this list of only a few reasons why the Westerners are not coming in the numbers they did in say 2005?

 

Overly strong Baht.

Too many scams.

Blinkered tourist board courting the wrong nationalities  i.e. now over run with Chinese, Indians, Middle Eastern, Madagascans ?

Not listening to advise from Westerners already in LoS.

Filthy beaches and Sois.

As mentioned, bag snatching.

Brutal unprovoked assaults.

Deadly roads.

Ineffective Policing combined with corruption.

Unsafe balconies........

Junta.

Restrictive legitimate Visas for extended periods.

Obese gogo dancers and bar girls...............

 

 

 

Add destroying the street markets and food stalls such as in BKK lower suk and the pee testing for drugs.

I think whomever wants the Americans back must be remembering with nostalgia the Vietnam war ! Americans are not big travellers at all ! I think they are getting confused with europeans . Plus Mexico does not have decently women . Anything over 30 (most are in pattaya now ) in Mexico are normaly overweight and have a shed load of kids .

Earlier this year I tried to buy dollars - it took me ages to find a money exchange with any dollars. Also the American military can face court martial if found with a bar girl.and charged with y human trafficking. For  fleshpot the yanks  have DR CR and other south american places for wine women and song, legal pot etc etc

Thais prefer white tourists over non-white tourists? Oh really? Do these said Thais realize they are non-white as well?

 

Sounds like somebody needs to get on board the Jesse Jackson rainbow coalition freedom train posthaste and cutback on the Farage/Trump white nationalist firewater.

 

Reminds me of that old Marx brothers' joke about not wanting to belong to any club that would allow me as a member.

Tried to retire in Thailand.  After 3 years I had had enough of the BS.  I had been scammed at every turn, 7/11 teenagers trying to overcharge me, condo renters and MANAGEMENT extorting me, airport personnel intentionally sending me off in the wrong direction, little Chinese old man trying to shove me off the sidewalk, ladyboys hounding me, Big C employees sending me off in the wrong direction, cell phone employees ignoring me, and on and on.  The people have no concept of customer service, they don't realize that some of us are trying to be good retirees and they just wear us down.  I met people from all over the planet and 80% of them knew some English and Google translate did the rest but the Thai people, for the most part, couldn't care less about non-Thai visitors.  In other words...the place as a whole just ain't that friendly and just when it seems like you're getting along, you get stabbed in the back again.  And you are wrong about Mexico.  Spent many, many years there and if it weren't for Trump pissing them off, I'd go back.  AND, the food beats the hell out of Thai food.  However, if I ever visit Thailand again I won't be leaving the airport.... I'll be on my way somewhere else.  

Good.  After 30 years travelling around Thailand i do not recognise the Thailand you describe.  I do however recognise the the personality type you seem to have which engenders and projects the negativity you describe.  Happy trails, podner.

Thais prefer white even among their own.

I've lived in LOS way longer than you, and still prefer it to elsewhere. Of course there are things that annoy, but are you unable to count your change?

If ladyboys are hounding you go somewhere they aren't.

Big C employees sending me off in the wrong direction, cell phone employees ignoring me, and on and on. 

Far more likely they don't understand what you want. It's what they do when they don't understand. You do realise that English isn't their primary language, don't you?

Everyone gets scammed, but most of us learn each time so it doesn't happen again.

I'm guessing, but perhaps you never tried Thailand before moving over. Everything sounds pretty normal to me.

Seriously, you don't sound like the sort of person that can accept Thailand so would probably be better off not here. Down to you, of course as Thailand is what it is, and it's not up to them to cater to your idea of how it should be.

Seems like I've heard a song describing a similar predicament, in which you may take some comfort.
