Is There Any Thai Vendor Who's Dependable?

Recommended Posts

It is often like this here. So many times they told me "tomorrow". But tomorrow never happened. In the meantime I know this and don't care anymore. "Tomorrow" often has the meaning of perhaps and even this is an optimistic view.

Yes, most everything is different in the country we all come from.  But that is the lure, isn't it...

 

Being disappointed in goods, services, and pricing goes with the easy access to wine, women, and song.

 

Try not to make comparisons to your home culture...Thais will be Thais...they bristle when compared to what they believe are inferior cultures.

Do they teach not being dependable in school in this country?

They really don't teach much...marching, singing the anthem and they learn that Thailand was never colonised......Oh, and to geng jai anyone who wears a uniform!

You are the person who is dependable by not moving on right away after hearing he is short of cash. 
Things work different here, you are aware for it, so you kind of waste your own time by ignoring the odds getting this kind of behaviour.

That aside, it is kind of obvious in Thailand and many other countries that 5PM is not 5PM. There is always 1 hour space around it.

Because it is foreign doesn't mean it is good, what place are the universities ranked?
