Civic minded German praised for keeping Thailand tidy

Thai media called a German man a foreigner with a heart of gold after reports of his collecting trash and keeping his housing estate clean. 

 

Manager went to Ban Choke Bunmee in Cha-Am, Petchaburi on hearing that the German was sweeping up, collecting leaves, cutting grass, cleaning the roads as well as sorting out the overflowing bins. 

 

The 56 year old - named as "Yorch" - said that he was a restaurant owner in the fatherland before moving to Koh Samui for two years.

He has been in Cha-Am for the last 5 months and cleans up every day when he goes out for his early morning cycle. 

 

Local woman "Aunty Maew", 60, had nothing but praise for her neighbor, thanking him for keeping the area so beautiful. 

 

The German commented that if everyone chipped in and did their bit that would help to keep it pleasant to live in.

Praise takes zero effort to give and means nothing. How about giving him a helping hand instead?

I think it must be a TVF poster thing, you know these amazing powers that you can deduce all this from one sentence

Good Luck, to make that one fall down and be understood. They just think it´s better to praise the foreigner instead, It´s only work for one anyway.

Heart of gold for not leaving the place looking like a tip, what does that say about the other residents?

 

haha, interesting how things/actions we would take for granted back home seem to be newsworthy here...

Well done "Georg ".

That's what I like with Germans: Everything has to be neat and tidy. 

Ordnung muss sein. 

Same as their country. Strict rules. 😊

I’m sure he is fed up with looking at trash, and hopes one day someone will follow his example so he can retire  😊
