I take it from you post that you consider yourself a Cheap Charlie. So why not leave now before you find it too expensive and difficult to enjoy Thailand and leave us others alone. Thanks.

I have greater fun spotting a bargain in Big C than seeing a naked girl in an agogo but that is just me.

How to know when you have been here too long.

 

I measure the cost of living by the cost of pu$$y. The price of gogo girls is now beyond the reach of cheap charlies.

I suppose I could be called a Cheap Charlie. My GF cuts my hair for me, and buys secondhand clothes for me. I don't squander money on expensive meals. Just once in a while, as a treat. If I'm buying a big ticket item, I look for the best value, or buy used if it is only a couple of months old.

I don't feel any need to impress friends or neighbors with my possessions. As the last time I was in debt was 1974, my philosophy is working for me.

I regard educating my Thai GF it is better to be a saver than a debtor as a triumph. She gets it now. My father taught me, and I'm passing it on.

Couldn't agree more, even down to the Dad teaching. I call myself, and so does my GF a CAREFUL Charlie. One of our favourite sayings is 'When it's gone (the money), it's gone'.

You know I could live a good life here being a cheap Charlie. Take my beers to the beach, A decent room with air con and free internet can be had here for 4500bht/mo about 3km from a nice beach and it has a small outdoor space where a gas burner is permitted for cooking. Quiet and laid back here. A nice soapie now and then, this isn't how I live but see nothing wrong with it.

Totally agree. I ENJOY my life here. Whenever I fancy Thai food I will eat it where Motorcy taxis etc eat. I don't give a toss what farang think of me. I do,however, enjoy interacting with Isaan Thais whilst ordering the food and just generally having a smile on my face and having a laugh at myself when I get mixed up with words. My most common mistake is asking for Mau Hok rather than Hau Mok .... (just waiting for a linguistic spanking now but buckit!). It is so bloody easy to live cheaply here and still be happy! Too many miserable bastards around that would complain at a balloon party at the quality of the food!!

Do not worry, i struggle with English sometimes. The other week jumped in the pool and screamed out" F....k this deep is so pool." Naturally got a few stares and a few laughs

The membership card only gives you free refills on the coffee/tea .....daily specials are all 99 baht....even if they are 99 baht ...if you see what I mean..

In that case Charlie might have to give it a miss 😉
