Recommended Posts

Is this so NC...... ? When I lived there after arriving in LoS in 2005 I thought there were one or two very pretty ladies along Soi Bintabaht , this was after leaving my wife behing in England.  I did decide after a while that one has been in the LoS too long when ladyboys start looking prettier though.

this incident happened in phuket.

Roti? Probably muslim.. 

 

Egyptian? Probably muslim..

 

Where two or more muslims gather, there will be trouble.

Very strange story
For myself I always speak Thai try what ever I can
A try be polite as possible
I know what Thai people can be if they get upset...
I seen it
I don't know what realy happened there
Other then that also stabbing somebody with a knife is not going to. Lead to anything good either..
If being insulted by any way
As a Thai I'd think about another way to deal with the situation
Not make it worse
Whole thing is bizarre

Same as a low scum farang would say. 🤔🤑

eh? you know incidents like this was way more common a few years ago and overall crime against tourists and crime in generall in whole thailand.

Its jeoulosy also and most of these stall or meal cart people dont know how hard the money is earned by most of the tourist and then spending a part of it. Some have more to spend and some less but the spending is visible.

Perhaps the Egyptian will have more respect next time, as he is lucky to be given a next time. The Thai was well within his rights IMO

It’s never happened to me or anyone I know.
 

 

But you do read the news and you are on thaivisa, so obviously you know this happens. Dont pretend it doesnt.

In what non EU country is it acceptable to make a rude, sexual suggestion to any woman, much less a married woman in front of her husband and children?

Are you serious, nought to do with money. I bought your food, now I can insult you and your wife! Best change your handle.

I'm prepared to believe this was a terrible misunderstanding. The Egyptian was clearly talking about his own wife's camel's toe. 

 

It got lost in translation.

Interesting you say that.  I have a German friend, quite beautiful and charming.  Very upstanding liberal woman.  Posts all of the "immigrants make us better" type memes in Facebook.

Told her I was going to Cairo and she commented quite strongly that she detests Egyptian men based on her visit there.  It was a bit shocking to hear that from her based on her typical liberal viewpoints.

My suspician is wherever she lives and works in Germany is insulated from contacts with any of these "great" male Egyptian immigrants.  For her fellow countrywomen maybe not so much.

 

Astonishing point to add that the most polite people I have seen are in Russia. They are friendly and hospitable. We see in media a lot bad about them but its not true.

 

I dropped my phone Imate at the airport arrival belt and when I was outside in parking lot with my host,  a man brought my phone all the way looking for me.

 

So its all about politics & media income.

I wonder how proficient the roti seller is in English? What one man says, quite possibly in jest, may have been misunderstood, though it still shows a very fragile ego to subsequently stab someone in the neck over something so minor, especially in front of his kids.

I feel for the guy in a way. I used to be embarrassed to be a foreigner in areas like Phuket and Pattaya where farangs eye up or think every woman is for sale. But you cant just go around stabbing people in the neck either. Egypt bloke probably made some rude comment thinking the vendor wouldnt understand. Yes the great publicity for Thailand tourism keeps coming. I see all the taxi drivers and touts still fighting each other at bali hai pier. The party is just about over I reckon

It gets old when people use Phuket and Pattaya in the same sentence. Phuket is not simply Patong. The average wealth of people living in Phuket is on par with that of Hawaii, USA. We have celebs, Olympians super elites living here in Phuket. We have feeder schools for our children that guarantee admission at  Stanford, Harvard,  an Yale in the USA: Phuket is much more than Patong Beach and not the dumpster that is Pattaya. I really wish people the can’t afford to travel to / live in Phuket would stop trashing on it.
