OP, I can sort of see where you are coming from - you racked up a bill AFTER the girl had agreed to go out and AFTER you had paid bar.  You are agrieved because you would not have bought those drinks if the girl had refused to go out. You probably wouldn't have got anywhere but you'd have been better to argue your case with the mamasan.

 

I'd have been pretty pissed off in those circumstances but remember where you are and who you are dealing with - some things you just have to put down to experience - there's no such thing as consumer rights on Cowboy.

OK, really appreciated that you can see where I am coming from.  I don't think its black and white, but I appreciate everyone's practical comments about avoiding Soi Cowboy for awhile.

 

I was pissed off.  I think it was neeray (did I get that name right?) who said it was/may have been a scam from the out set.  That is how I felt.  

 

If it was, and the bar girl ended paying, how am in the wrong?  Shouldn't the person (the BG) responsible for the scam have to bear the costs of the scam?

Having now read this whole sordid thread, and never having been in a situation needing payment of a bar fine, I see this picture.

The girl was probably never available to go "out". I think the whole episode was about selling lady drinks. You got set up for a big bar bill. Maybe the plan was to get you drunk enough that you would take a piss pass on the date.

And the boyfriend angle even reinforces my theory, IMO.

 

But I do agree with some others. Own the situation and go back close to opening one day soon and pay the tab. Then you're free to roam in the future, as a wiser man.

I did like it was a scam.  And the bar should bear responsibility.  I don't see this as black and white.  I get the practicalities, but I don't understand why I should pay if I have no plans to go back.

If you live on high floor I would also suggest avoiding the balcony for a while.

I only read thru page 2 so I may be the only one with this view - I like his move - although as has been pointed out it was dangerous.

 

Maybe it was a scam the bar and woman work - act interested in a guy, get him to buy a lot of drinks for self, woman, and her friends, then come up with an excuse to not go with the customer.

 

I'm amazed he got away with it and it is not recommended, but I like what he did, because I am assuming it was a scam.

Even if not, she established a situation which kept him there to keep running up a big bill, then she reneged.

Let her pay.

 

Staying away from there for awhile definitely sounds like a good idea.

 

Perhaps they let him walk because they all knew it was a scam.

 

Ballsy move that worked out.

 

You are not a thief.

They were scamming you and it cost them, not you.

 

I wouldn't go there and pay unless you can't bear to not go to Walking Street for a few months.

When you go back, patronize the bars on the other end of the street for awhile.

I take it we're talking about the soi, rather than the girl?

Well there does seem to be a two way entry. Enter at your own risk if soi or girl.

if you were shopping for clothes and found that the two for one offer was only after you buy five items would you walk out of the store with everything and not pay? That is how the bar will see it. You really need to fix this before you are arrested. And good luck with immigration after that.

 

By the way, they do this every night. Night after night.   

It's not the same thing.

 

He would have found out that the two for one was only after buying five items when he tried to pay for the 1st item.

 

He wouldn't have run up a tab, as he did at the bar.
