Anger over 'bad manners' of foreign couple on train

I liked the australian chopped steak but last time the quality was much less than before.

 

Nothing wrong with their food though, but i don't order the expensive steaks since they are not worth the money. I know better places for real steak.

 

In the malls there's not much quality food, Sizzlers and the japanese are the only places i like to eat. Oh and Hachiban69 ramen.

 

I also like the deserts in the small mini Hoegaarden glasses...

I have found the quality of the imported cuts varies from time to time.

This has nothing to do with not knowing local customs or cultural differences. Anyone with a basic level of decency and respect for others would know that you don't put up your feet like that.

 

And of course the Thai bashers are out in full force, braying like hyenas about examples of poor behavior from Thais they claim to bear witness to on a nigh on daily basis, as if that would somehow rid these foreigners of any guilt.

 

"Foreign couple steals candy from baby? Yeah, but what about that Thai guy who killed his girlfriend a year ago? Surely you need to stop reporting negative news about foreigners as long as there are Thai people behaving badly!"

A basic level of  respect for others is rather much to ask from many posters here

It is extremely rude, disgusting and shows a complete lack of cultural understanding. However they are tourists and probably lack local knowledge..

 

In some countries it is considered extremely rude to remove your shoes in someone else's house. This is due to socks being smelly and dirty. So I wonder how many Thai people travel to other countries and take their shoes off when they are not suppose to?

 

Tourists of all nationalities may become involved in such cultural misunderstandings. Do they deserve to be photographed and posted all over the internet? Probably not and it may also be illegal under the cyber crime act?

 

The real fault is with the train staff and other passengers. A polite tap on the shoulder and a nice reminder that its impolite to put you feet up in Thailand may have worked. However the shyness and fear of confrontation stops many Thai people from doing so. They are not so afraid of confrontation whilst hiding behind their phones though!

This is not cultural misunderstanding.  Putting ones feet on the back of seat in front of you would be a no-no anywhere.  Complete lack of proper behavior, decorum, etiquette, or whatever you want to call it anywhere in the world, even more so if people were sitting in the seat in front and had to move. Just plain slobs.

Worry more about the carnage caused on the roads and the untold misery brought to thousands of families each year from the disrespect for life shown to others while driving

Where they let the toddler walk on the buffet was opposite side of the road along patpong sala daeng iirc, in some mini mall there...

 

But if you wanna see crying kids ALL OVER the Sizzlers you go to Westgate, especially during the weekend....i won't go there anymore, never. They even bring babies from 6 months old who already cry when they enter the restaurant.

 

Last time there were 4 crying babies in that sizzlers, one was from a farang with thai wife...the wife walked in/out the restaurant all the time with that crying baby while mr farang could eat with the other kiddo's.

It totally ruined my steak so we left, i thanked the mother outside for ruining my dinner then she chased us while yelling with the baby on her arm....unbelievable what some farang marry to.

It's unbelievable what some 'farang' eat !!!!

 

I can guarantee that your steak was ruined well before a baby cried within audible range!

 

But to top it off... You complained directly to a Mother trying to console her crying infant that your dinner was ruined by her baby crying....  Not only are you a despicable person, you clearly come across as bitter, sour, and unlikable in the extreme... Shame on you :post-4641-1156693976:

Sorry, but for me typically "modern backpacker" feet.
Give a s*** on Thai culture or good behaviour but travel the country to get "inspired".
You can't agree ?
Spend some days in PAI then ...

It´s amazing to read how many childish comments all the TV-posters can make of a clear differens in culture.

Most people travel around the world for experiencing new cultures and have fun with partuing at the same time.
How would it be to have some knowledge and behave arroeding to culture, values and customs then? Or maybe that´s too much to ask for. Seems like some overgrown infants believes that anyway.

Worse than a monk clouting an elderly foreign chap around the head, or families of Thais tossing their litter out of the window every 5 minutes. 

Some signs would help, but that way it would mean the Thais who sit with their legs across multiple seats would have to stop too, or is this just another op to bash the foreigners

Without a post there would be no post at all.

I see this all the time on trains, Thais do this, heaps of people do it but Facebook will always attract the do gooders

Yes have seen it many times in Sydney on the trains not for a few years though as I no longer live there

I think it all comes down to how you were brought up or dragged up and as you say no respect for any sort of authority.

' how you were brought up or dragged up '   doesn't matter ....  everyone knows right from wrong ...  !

Many idiots (mainly young adults, couldn't give a sh*t about authority types) still put their feet up on the opposite seat in trains in Melbourne Australia.

Steve there is scum all over the world Try London mate  And worse still Berlin where the nazi movement amongst the young ones is  starting to grow again Except this time its not the Jews its the Muslims. Thank god Thailand is 20 years behind the western world still. You dont see to many Thais with there hair shaven off and the swat sticker tattooed  in there head Even though the Pm here might be wearing a wig to hide his swat sticker
