American backpacker in Chiang Mai PUNCHES hotel staff after refusing to pay for girl he brought back to his bed

It just amazes me. Thailand seems to get its fair share of the dregs of society. In fact, sometimes it seems like a magnet. 

 

I suspect people hear outdated tales about this mythical land where everything is dirt cheap and for sale and they think they can just behave like the own the place. It annoys me even more when you realise in the scheme of western vs Thai wages, the 200B means way more to the person working in the hostel than it does to the prick who was just trying to get a free night's accommodation for his one night stand.

His bill just went from 200 to 20,000 baht. 

 

Question: In Chiang Mai, do the bars really close at midnight?

It seems to me that he said he paid it at 4 am, probably when he returned late at night with his girl. And as always happens in thailand, they tried to squeeze some money out of him at the time, and probably put it right into their pocket. Then she probably left a few hours before he attempted to check out, likely a new staff on duty at the front desk asked the girl which room she was coming from, and they noted it so they could hit him up for some more money on the way out, charging him twice for the same extra friend. That’s what happens when you stay at a small backpacker hostel place for 200B per night. If he was staying at a big hotel like Sofitel or Westin with 50 staff and electronic key cards they wouldn’t have known or cared who he came home with. I’m sure he had a valid argument for being ripped off. But he shouldn’t have resorted to violence and punched the guy. He should have just walked out and left.

Exactly. No respect. Were talking bus fare here.

For all you guys commenting thinking it’s stupid, I hate to tell you more common than you think .

 

being in hotel business for 10 years in Thailand , this kind of thing happens weekly , and sometimes for less than 200 baht.

 

being reasonable simply does not work as these dumb dumbs do not understand. 

 

In perspective it’s less than a pack of cigs in his home country and yet they will behave like idiots.

 

mimd you this kind of stupidity is not limited to young ones, 60-70 year olds are the same

If she slept in the dorm then she slept in the dorm. No argument pay 200B.

 

Had he been in a real hotel and brought a bargirl "home", the room service bill would have been more than 200B !!

Shouldn't they have asked the girl to pay?

As far as I can see it isn't his problem and what's with the other white guy helping the Thais? No Thai would ever help a foreigner against other Thais.

 

PS. I always book a double room and tell them my 'local gf' is arriving later, no joiner fees.

Yes they do.

Apart from Spicey (owned by police) and Living Room (all night drugs but frequently police outside).

If you watch the video, he was being assaulted by staff at the time and unable to leave.

Try being British in a foreign country !

 

Polite Canadians would never do such things.

Polite Americans or polite people from anywhere would never do such a thing.

Absolutely.

 

Bringing back a Western girl instead of a local!
