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

He has to wait a looooooong time for it.

At least one Farang who isn't in the news for negative Breaking News.

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. 😊

At least they don't burn their garbage on the marketplace.....🕵️‍♀️

I think the headline should read "Civic minded German praised for keeping his Thai village tidy", 

Residents embarrassed by his energy and civic pride.  Well done the mein Herr.:clap2:

You got in there first !!!... 

 

Ok, I'll go with, jokes about those making working permit comments in 3..2..1.. go !!!

 

But you are quite right, there will most definitely be some tool to come along in a minute and suggest that this guy will be arrested for working !!!... 

It's no joke, especially in these times where the Thai authorities will use any excuse to boot you out. I wouldn't lift a finger, leave it to the Thais !

Right, all it would take is for one of his neighbors to call the "snitch on a farang" hotline and there might be a raid and arrest in short order.

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

I have NEVER seen foreign visitors in my country cleaning up litter. It would be newsworthy.

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. 

Next headline - "German deported for having no work permit"

There are roads where a lot of rubbish is dumped west of the main city centre, but generally I find most streets and lanes are pretty much free of rubbish. Who is cleaning it up?

 

Wealthy retired farang who look down on Thais' 'lack of civic pride' should bear in mind that most Thai people (especially in the poor areas where the rubbish is worst - probably dumped by builders, etc) struggle to meet their basic daily costs, and typically work ridiculously long hours.

 

I get that Thailand has its negatives, but geez this site is a shocker for the constant whinging. Why don't you go home if it's so bad here, and whine about the English weather, or are you only here 'for the whores' and cheap stuff?

My money is on some local Thais purposefully littering just so he comes around cleaning up after them. 

 

Will probably start putting down hazardous waste next. 😂

several years back a pleasant professionally employed farang friend and his Thai wife and 2 kids moved into a fairly new village in Udon. A few days later a handwritten letter in his letterbox re village rules, mentioning that the wife and kids were welcome to use the pool but not the farang.

 

The Thai wife was furious, she went to the poll and sat around for a wile being pleasant to the other Thai folks sitting around who she assumed would not know she had a farang husband.

 

She asked 2 ladies if outside visitors were allowed to use the pool.

 

Answer, 'Yes, if they are family, but farang especially black farang are banned'. She asked why, answer 'farang so dirty'.
