99% of my daily encounters with both foreigners and Thai's in Thailand are positive. 

Same here.

 

Last bad experience was about 3 months ago, as I was putting my items on the checkout at Tesco Lotus, an older Thai lady just walked straight up to the counter, elbowed me out of the way and shoved a wad of bills at the cashier. I was gobsmacked - I get people queue jumping me all the time but this was super rude.

 

Prior to that was about a year ago at Mr DIY when the guy gave me the "no hab" BS which really annoys me now, especially when I ask for what I want in Thai. 

 

So that's a pretty good run really.

Not just spiteful ageist nonsense but innacurate nonesense. As I would expect from generation pantywaist. I have had the fortune to have been travelling around Thailand for about 3 decades and have been the recipient of kind gestures frequently. Alas a new type of low class visitor has spoilt things here. Half educated Generation Yob, from the UK and elsewhere, self centred and disrespectful they just need a half of bad lager, a pair of flip flops,  crusty sheets and screen showing sport to satisfy their curiosity and think they are living the dream.

Nope sorry in my time here I have seen that the OAPS moan more then anyone especially those from the UK. I always thought the Dutch were the number 1 moaner but those in the UK can beat the Dutch. 

 

Young guys seem to have a far more positive attitude then the old bitter guys I have seen.

I think I've finally worked out the American fetish for iced water with all meals. It's to paralyze the taste buds.

leastways we don't kill our sex partners for chops after shaving them for sweaters. Crikey!

Those brown things are potato wedges.  As for the rest, it is eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, bacon on rye toast and covered with Hollandaise sauce.  Here is the same dish on a different day.  This farang actually likes this dish and it is my go to breakfast at this restaurant.

The bacon looks correctly done. Is it real hickory bacon (meaning American) then, or the insipid Thai version?

All I can say is that it tasted good.

This has happened to me before, and it was a case of the hotel believing I was a paying guest.

You'll have to excuse him. i understand the cuisine in Antarctica doesn't run to eggs Benedict.

Whose the closest to Antartica then? Oh, yes, I know, Oz gave us Outback Steakhouse, the go to Restaurant for 17 year olds to take their gfs to before they start fumbling with the pretty pink panties. Here baby Im tking you to a fancy place its real Australian cuisine.

 

Naw dude, real Australian cuisine is a creepy crawly stick roasted over a eucalyptus wood, with a sublime can of stolen beans. Leastaways US yanks gave the world tomatoes,  Hoppin John, corn, pizza, Mac and Cheese and the ulitmate world food.....

 

The Burger. You would all be whinging more about food if there werent any burgers to save you. Its like a post "O yes, I dont eat western food any more since I came to Thailand, I prefer some stir fried frog and waterbugs with my Chang". Yeah dude, then they catch you stuffing Big Macs in your craw. Next time lose the socks, sandals and singlet, OK?, you are easy to spot.

 

Speaking of real American food, my bro Eddie over on Soi Pridi 2 (Be Kine Kool Restaurant) has REAL American style baby ribs (fall off the bone) as well as Mac and Cheese..real cheese. You phood Philistines ought to try it.

Yeah, Thai people dont usually know how to do bacon. I tried to teach the auntie in the place that I go near Hua Lamphong how to cook a right rasher, instead I end up with the limp pieces of thin pork belly like you find in the bottom of the Baked Goong and Glass Noodles. So I gave up and just order the chicken sausage with my omelet.

Thanks. I like more spud than that though, and I didn't see the bacon in the first photo.

Perhaps I'll try that sauce on eggs sometime.

I'm baffled why you had to pump up the tyre when every service station I used has a compressor to pump up tyres.

Neverthless, I too carry a battery powered compressor in my car.

If you checked out any other gas station apart from (most) PTT's, you would find that having a working compressor and an air line is almost standard. However, having a working tire filler valve on the end of the air line, even if it is long enough, is always completely optional.

Before I read anymore posts, I feel compelled to relate my (opposing) Chiang Mai breakfast experience.

I was solo at the time when I went for breakfast. When finished (great breakfast), I reached into my pocket for some baht and suddenly realized that when I changed my clothes that morning, I must have forgot to transfer the money over to the new clothes.

I told the waitress. She said, "that's okay, don't worry about it" (Hello CM).

Confounded that I had done this, I kept digging into my cargo shorts pockets. And sure as sugar, I found the pocket full of baht. The understanding waitress was well looked after.

 

But did you ever go back?
