Strange Incident Last Night at Soi Cowboy

This was the bar fine that is paid after a few drinks.  I wanted to finish a second beer and leave.  She wanted a few drinks and a few of her friends to get drinks.  I figured that when that was over, we would leave.  Instead, she took off to talk to a new friend.

 

sounds like her "boyfriend" turned up and she had to act like she not "working" until she could shoo him out then get back over to you..

 

next time.. pay the bar fine when you are leaving with your tab. if is she refuses to leave, it will be easy to get a refund (barfine) and more importantly a good nights sleep 😉

While you were flashing your pink card, did you also tell

her where you staying ? That is how.

 

Though personally I do not think they will bother to attract attention but  I would not return to Cowboy ever again if I were you 

I mentioned the street, but nothing more specific.  Many farangs here.

Ahh what fun

 

I am going to go out on a limb here. I think you should not go back to soi cowboy for awhile. Give it a rest. Maybe next trip.

 

And remember something, you could have been beaten up by 5 bouncers. The guys that come up behind you with a metal pipe. You got off cheap. No telling what will happen next time, if you repeat this behavior. I would like to think you learned something and would be smarter next time. However likely just my optimistic cultural values getting the better of correct judgement.

I flashed the card because I was drunk.  Dumb move.  PR status is reflected in a booklet, but they will also give you a pink card (I think you can also get one with a business visa).  So the pink card could reflect I have PR status or a one year visa (not sure).

 

So, you think she will cover the bill?  She complained, but it didn't turn into an ugly scene.  Maybe she realized she was in the wrong?  Not sure.  No problems when I simply announced I was walking out of the bar and did so, but they seemed surprised and caught off guard, like they were expecting a bigger fuss.

 The pink card is issued to foreigners holding many different visas and is not exclusive to PR holders and it doesn't say (in Thai language) another about PR.

 

Perhaps more to the point a bar girl or bar manager are unlikely to understand what the card is / who holds the card etc.

I live here, but point taken about avoiding Soi Cowboy.

I would suggest you return as soon as possible, apologize citing drunkenness and pay what you owe.

Spot on.

Or they will beat you to within an inch of your life ... :thumbsup:

How in hell would we know if there is CCTV footage of you ?

You would not.  I am just wondering if there is typically CCTV in bars and on Soi Cowboy near Asoke that the bar could access if they really decide to "track me down".   That is why I asked.  

In Pattaya there are regulations that GoGo Bars (at least) must have CCTV, and are (were?) inspected to ensure they comply. Can't remember if it was a 'national' or 'local' regulation though.
