Foreigner helps support Thai Family

Recommended Posts

"I just thought I'd post a positive contribution to Thailand by a foreigner, ie me."

 

Great way to pat yourself on the back. Keep it up and you'll have a looooong list of 'extended' family members turning up.

 

My stepson and my wife's grandma are here. No more.

What does your name and anyone being able to read English have to do with it? I think we all contribute to Thai society by spending our money here and frequenting their businesses.

 

Oh no! Do you know who I am? OMG!! I must change my ID stat!   😛

 

Word gets around quickly in this place White Knight.  These folks will love you until the funds dry up, then they'll move along. You might even get a 'thanks'.

OK...not sure what you're going on about. I never said anything about people not contributing.

Since most of my Thai in-laws earn far more than I do, or have plenty of money squirreled away, I have never felt the need. However, my wife and I do shop local as much as possible.

it's all about wives and sweethearts.

wives will always be taken care of,  but not forget the sweethearts.

 

Today I have had a distress call from my regular caddy. Single mum, three children. golf course closed, no work, no money.

Somebody who thinks he knows everything about Thai people: But doesn't.

 

I don't know if that is directed to me, but I certainly don't know everything about Thai people nor did I ever claim to.

Oh dear watching this is facinating .

I think those of us who employ Thai staff will keep paying them and have over a period of time contributed to loyal people enabling children to gain an education health care etc. It is what you do if in a position to contribute to community.

The old addage is "it takes a village to>>>>>>>>" (add someting positive)
