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

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.

Ever heard of occam's razor? 

"Suppose there exist two explanations for an occurrence. In this case the one that requires the least speculation is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation."

 

Your one relies on a whole lot of speculation (just look at how many times you say probably/likely), with a dash of anti-Thai rhetoric to come to the conclusion you got to. Also, the bigger hotels can and do care about bringing women back to the room.

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

Therein lies the problem. This guy booked a room with 9 other people and still expected that he could bring a guest back for a bit of fun. Not only is he trying to cheap his way out of paying for the extra guest (as you clearly do), but he's enough of a <deleted> to think it's all good to disrupt the sleep and peace of the other people in his dorm as he pounds some other tourist while they try to sleep. 

 

I get with hostels it's a bit of a luck of the draw, and that thing isn't hugely uncommon in some places - but Chiang Mai hostel goers could expect a different experience to Ibiza hostel goers

Ha ha! You're on a different planet to me then.

The average number of times people fart in a day is around fifteen. I couldn't do the other option that many times in a day - well not for more than a week anyway.

The farts are free and the other apparently costs ฿200

They’re all wonkers, the yank for trying to do a 200 baht runner, the silly cow of a hostel worker for kicking up such a stink and trying to grab his bag for the 200 baht unpaid and the other young tourist jerk for getting involved and trying to be a defender of the good... and lastly me, for even bothering to give a poo

This sad sack of shit is in for a world of trouble now. He will be lucky if he gets away with a week in jail and a huge fine. Anyone know what happened to the girl?

She hasn't come out of the room.  She is only on guy number 7.

She didn't dare to ask him for her 200 baht so now she sleeps under the bridge...

Another Western cheapskate who can't even afford to stay in a proper place. No wonder Thailand welcomes Chinese tourists who at least can afford to pay for hotels and behave properly.

I suspect the name is based upon a three-word cliche in Thai detailing the three things the average Joe has time to do in between finishing work and going to sleep. The last activity is not fart but another four-letter word with the same initial.

The name "EatPrayFart" is based upon the best-selling book Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia.  It is about a divorced woman's journey around the world to discover herself and find love.  The book was later made into the film Eat, Pray, Love starring Julia Roberts.

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
