Quality tourist? Westerner in Phuket filmed being abusive after urinating on taxi

Yes... Thai's do it too.....  I've actually lost count of the amount of times I'm driving down the road and see a Thai chappy taking a leak - But, they usually make attempts to be far more discrete. 

 

It is the openness with which this man acted, peeing up someone else car. 

 

But, I see the 'Faux-Outrage' that it was a foreigner doing this, had it been a Thai it may not have made the news. To place this issue in a true Perspective...  A Thai Taxi driver can beat up a tourist and receive a 500 baht fine, but a tourist (American female) desperate for a Pee takes one on the street and is fined 4x that amount - IMO there represents a degree of imbalance between the manner in which Westerners and Thai's are viewed, reported on and charged.

 

Personally, I believe this guy should be penalized for his disgusting act - its the open brazenness for which he needs to be charged. If he is unable to find a bathroom he could have at least found somewhere more discrete.

What the farang pig did is wrong but its nothing.

I live in a soi in BKK that has a busy samlor rank. Thai drivers urinate against the wall /gutter of a house in view of everyone from 5am to 8pm 7 days a week. Its impossible to stop them. They once threatened to get their police mates to come around and arrest me...for what? They've been urinating there for over 30 years so that makes it OK apparently.  I'm surprised the foundations of the house haven't rotted.

You or I would be fined 2000 baht .

We have no rights in this country.

I've just about had enough of this place which is sad.

Mr. Squirrel Bladder was really playing with fire when he shook his fist in the guy's face like that. He should have apologized and offered the guy 100 baht for the trouble he caused.

Same at the bottom of my driveway here, although they do it just out of sight, but the smell is not pleasant.

That's reminded me of a sign on a piece of land - but it was only in Thai - 'Don't piss here!'

I didn't realise there was an 'in depth' survey that had been carried out?

The Welsh and the Irish must be more restrained then. Or suffer more with enlarged prostates.

All countries who beg for tourist must face one big fact…’There is a cost of doing businesses’.

Anytime 30+ million people come into their country bad things will happen. Rape, robbery, murder, hospitalization, overstay, you think of it and someone in the group of 30+ million will do it.

Countries must collect ‘insurance’ money along the way. They must set up these funds to pay for the damage because it will happen.

I do not think it’s natinality related . All has to do with how much of a pig one is. Good reason why you only see taxi drivers urinating in public , well dressed locals would find a toilet or go far away from public eye. Same applies world wide

I am not in favour of urinating in public, but some people, sometimes have a need to relieve themselves quickly.

The alternative could be pissing themselves in the pants.

I would like to ask the "gentleman" who has filmed the scene, would you prefer pissing yourself or pissing on the street ?

Is it more barbaric to publicly embarrass a human being for a pee, or the act of peeing itself ?

Let the foreign tourist offer a wai and pay for 3 buckets of tap water, end of.

I cannot believe my eyes - this foolish behaviour from a westerner no less.

 

Luckily there was no BAD END.Read of many such cases being set upon by a gang of thais. This person must be reported to the relevant authorities  for action.

What a shame.

That's ongoing.

Wasn't an American woman last week fined 2,000 Baht for getting out of a taxi and urinating in the street?

 

The street vendor pissing into a bottle whilst cooking wasn't fined, there again he was being more discrete, if unhygienic. What the 'eye' doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve about.

In a similar incident last year, an American woman was charged with urinating in a public place

X2 a year?  I can live with those statistics.
