Are Thais reacting to Farang negative attitudes?

Recommended Posts

The average Thai lives for the moment and cares not what we think they think about us.

I have a very different opinion, but then i live in a tourists place.

My " average Thais" rub shoulders, so to speak, with foreigners on daily basis, so it's almost impossible for them not to have an opinion about the "average Foreigner".

 I think , many foreigners who spend a lot of time abroad, start to feel, sooner or later, some kind of discomfort or even a threat. When there is a feeling of discomfort - there inevitably come more negative feelings of different kind. Whenever we feel not so happy (and we often do) - "those Thais" are usually coming to our minds as the main reason for us not being quite well. This same process also happens with somebody living in his native environment: we prefer to have a name for the source our misfortunes. Being a stranger amongst the strangers makes these kind of assumptions (projections) even more rational and right in our eyes.

The vast majority of the disrespect I show toward Thai people, is shown toward the local franchisees (they refer to themselves as the RTP), virtually any level of government, and the army in particular. Otherwise, I like most Thai people. And I do believe that the army and the current administration are deeply despised by most Thai people, so criticism of them would not be taken personally. Most people I speak to feel that way. I have run into very few who approve of the army. Their standing in Thai society has fallen off the cliff, with the recent power grab. 

 

Generalizations made about Thai people in general might be taken personally. But, I think the average Thai is barely aware of our presence, unless they are in tourism, or live in an area with a large ex-pat population.

My Thai wife has lived and worked in Europe for a couple of years. Travelled around Europe a bit. 

We moved back to Thailand and now she is begging me to leave....

She made more friends in Europe than in Thailand even though she has only lived a fracture of her life there. 

She knows the difference now.

 

Great, get tf back to the <deleted>hole your wife likes

My missus hasn't had a difficulty resettling here. She has had a difficulty understanding <deleted> is wrong with this country and its people. She used to like her country and believed how wonderful this nation was. Then she has had the chance to see the world and now she has a more negative opinion on her own country than most of these so-called bitter farangs. 

Remember this: It does not matter what people say, it matters who says it. 

Thailand is not a place that has room for improvement, but it's a place that needs a major revamp. I am not a basher and I am not a person who criticizes for fun or because of boredom, and I wouldn't do that openly, but let's be real; we all understand why loads of farangs show disrespect towards Thailand. 

Some people wear those extra-thick rose-tinted glasses, but some don't. 

Your wife who prob married you for the money, will get bored after a few years and will want to return. That I'm sure of.

You answered the question. The system that works for Thai people ... 

That is the answer to why those bitter farangs bad-mouth. They do not understand this rather "peculiar" system, call it "ostrich policy"?

I believe even those bitter old fellows appreciate some benefits of living in Thailand, but then no one really cares. They also contribute, but again, no one really cares. Both sides are just as biased as they can be. I see that the criticism usually causes an uproar. BUT Why not listen instead? 

They contribute... How about they are able to enjoy visiting Thailand? I'm sure they aren't just giving away money without anything in return. Another original comment from a smart tourist trying to save the Thai economy.
