Stupid farangs

Recommended Posts

Reminds me of a time in Ho Chi Minh a few years back when a young women on a scooter was pumping her horn behind me because I was walking and she couldn’t get by ... which would of course be fair if it wasn’t for the fact that she was driving down the pavement at the time. A common sight in Vietnam.

Love all the responses , folks. Especially the daft ones. ROFL.

 

Any chance of clearing up if you encountered a Farang pedestrian or cyclist?

 

The post didn't make a lot of sense the way it's written.

This isn't specific about any race, both farangs and Thais do it.

 

I met quite a lot of people who would cross (jaywalk) the road seeing that I was coming their way. It's as if they think we would brake and stop for them in the middle of the road (that is not a pedestrian crosswalk)

 

No wonder the accident rate is so high because they didn't learn about simple traffic rules before crossing.

 

Look right

Look left

Look right again and if NO incoming traffic

Cross

I said " a farang on foot" and "walks on". I suppose he could have had a bicycle with him; however, I think I would have mentioned if that were the case. Pedestrian.

The post didn't make sense to you. Others seem to have understood it OK.

You had to steer around a farang on foot and then you start a rant about farang cyclists? What’s the connection?

I don't know, but tourist farang bicycle riders in C M are uniquely stupid. They think they can pedal leisurely around the old city 2 abreast without getting flattened. Believe me I've wanted to flatten a few of them myself. It's usually of the bagpacker generation that can't go anywhere without checking their phone first. Some shouldn't be allowed on the plane.

but heaven forbid a cyclist exercises his right to be on the road

Never said he did not have the right to be in a place not designed and built for him.

But he was in the wrong - read my post - and paid for it.

I see many bikes - world wide - ridden by Birkenstock-wearing yahoos in Spandex weaving all over the road. The light turns green and they swerve in front of a car or pickup and - damn - pump them pedals !

My Moron comment stands.

Not for bicycles.

Ride one at your peril. But same in the West. They figure because they are 'Green' and 'Saving' the planet. they should get better treatment.

Their arrogance is exceeded only by their ignorance.

Had one hit my 67 Chevy once - turned left right in front of me. I stopped and helped him up - ranting and raving and got my license number to report me to the cops.

Long story short - he was at fault. After that spew I made him pay for the tiny, barely noticible scratch on my hood where his handlebar hit.

Moron.

was there a scratch on the  'bonnet' too? 😋

Well, insulting everyone when stuck in traffic sounds very normal to me.

Where I come from - girls wear bonnets, cars have hoods.

Men wear boots, cars have trunks.

And we drive on the correct side of the road, as sword battles are a thing of the past 555

Elephants have trunks. Also men swimming in the sea.

No mate, you have it all wrong. We call them bonnets because we invented cars at a time when ladies wore bonnets, We drive on the side of the road where the cars we invented first drove. If its a trunk, why don't you call a ladies booty a trunky? And never piss off  a man with a sword, unless you have an assault rifle.  Oh yes,  I forgot, you all have one of those , fair play on that one
