Civic minded German praised for keeping Thailand tidy

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

I don't know about the black farang, but I have to admit I see many farang here that could do with a good wash.  Next time you are in a supermarket just look at a few.... greasy hair plastered to their heads, dull dirty looking skin on their faces, bad teeth, sweat drenching their shirts, not shaved, and a rather pungent BO smell if you get to near them, as well as often dirty, old and ill fitting clothes.

 

Really, the dirty ones are not that rare.  I have not noticed a Thai with such poor personal cleanliness, with the exception of some homeless drunk ones.

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?

What a stupid comment, if you don't like TVF don't read it and read all the rubbish

from the country you come from.

Are personal attacks moderated here? I didn't attack anybody personally, why are you?

 

I've been closely involved with Thailand for 12 years, so hardly a newbie - just this forum. I thought I might learn something new. The level of commentary is mostly not worth reading, let alone responding to, your post being a good example. Cynical whinging about Thailand is never-ending. The general disrespect towards Thai people and its culture is appalling. 

 

Yes, go home if 'you' don't like it here. Good riddance.

I can't imagine where you're hanging out. I never see farang in that state. Abhorrence towards dark skin is widespread, though. It's quite common to see Thai outdoor workers with full face masks to prevent tanning.

 

I was going to share some pics (but nah) I took of some narrow soi southwest of Blueport, near the train tracks - not a piece of rubbish anywhere near people's homes or in market areas. Away from normal housing there is plenty, so it's probably a case of 'out of sight - out of mind'.

My main complaint is the endless burning of rubbish and other organic material. It's not only a health hazard but 'spoils the view' of Hua Hin's small, but beautiful, mountains.

bad teeth

This is a British thing. And the older I get the more I adopt it. Of course, with enough money, it's always possible to have perfect teeth. I kinda lost it havta I heard Hollywood wannabees we're replacing perfectly good natural teeth with false teeth to conform to the Hollywood norm. I'm rather proud of my discoloured teeth, especially the lower set, which despite the best efforts of bad dentists, and sugary sweets, have survived. My father had a trick, he would pick me up with his teeth. Genetics survives in the lower set, in the upper set the environment rules.

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. 😂

Start?????

Maybe they keep seeing this photo of yourself that you have posted on this forum. If I were them I'd be thinking you might be using too. 🙂

sorry, but he just demeans himself in the eyes of the locals, while they  sit on their hands and do nothing.  Actually, they do something, they produce the trash he is cleaning up. By all means look after your own land and immediate surrounds that impact you, but don't help the people who cause the problem in the first place.  They learn nothing by seeing this man acting as a local labourer.

He's not demeaning himself. Who cares what the Thais do. This guy was obviously raised the right way. Either thank him or say nothing rather than putting him down for his kind actions.

Well its up to him, but let's not pretend that they think he is some kind of Good Samaritan, come to save them from their own laziness   He may be appear to be a good neighbour to his farang friends and he would be in his own country, but not here.  Here is just a gullible foreigner doing a job the locals should be doing, locals who have no regard for their local areas and the environment.  the more we do the jobs that they should be dong the less they will do. Watch the locals, brush their own (deleted) into the street, keeping their house nice and clean and the road and verges covered in trash

Don't focus on those that don't do their part. Rather appreciate those that go beyond what is expected.

 

If there were more people like this guy in the world it would be a far better place.
