Thais are told: Stop expecting foreigners to clear up your filthy mess!

Recommended Posts

I don't think Thais are any better or worst than westerners , the problem is a cultural one, and cultures evolve or sometimes devolve.  That's why the same Thais who would act like that in Thailand,  when they go to the west act different.

The problem is called the broken glass syndrome. 

In the South Bronx in the seventies and early eighties there were a lot of abandoned buildings with every window broken. NY city implemented a  program where they just covered every window with pictures of nice  windows with flower pots etc.  As it turned out kid would see broken windows and would see it as a permission to break all the rest. 

Same thing happens people see garbage everywhere, they see it a permission for them to also throw their garbage.  No one wants to be the first to throw garbage at a clean floor.

The fix is easy. First apply an effort to clean, and then as it was done in this article, shame people for doing it.

Wait, not long time and Mr Ooi will be charged with overstay, not fulfilling tm30 and working without permit after some local has called immigration Hotline for getting the foreigner reporting reward...

Maybe it's you who doesn't understand, because you refer to overstayers as (human) garbage, don't you?

Yes, I do! Do you have a better name and shame for me?

They should throw stuff away and behave better.

Lazy, dirty, and little respect for others or the environment.  Most will not wash their hands all day either 🙁 I will say, most of the toilets are pretty clean

I disagree. I find most Thai are very clean in their personal washing.
