Not my fault, is it?

if they cant be bothered to learn the trade and move up the chain then don't take it out on the customers!

When i left school i cleaned toilets for a living because that is all I could get  Back then. Had i not had the hard work ethic to get out of that situation I would still be cleaning those same toilets. 
 

i have zero sympathy for people who cannot be bothered to improve their own lives. 

Being born with limited intelligence is something you can't blame others for but having such a bad disposition like you is something you can change. So to say its not your fault is not true. You should lighten up. Some people will never be able to do much more then cleaning. They can't improve everyone has their limits. Has nothing to do with being idle or not wanting to improve but with skill.

 

When i was done with my education I was hired right away so I did not have to resort to jobs like what you are talking about. But there is no shame in those jobs. I stocked shelves, was a postman and worked in the Tulips during my education time. Nothing wrong with that at all.

We had a road sweeper in my town, was a real character, lived with his old mum till she died, once when the council were gritting the town David was behind it shovelling the grit into his cart, he got a member of the public to help him push it back to the yard!!😂😂

We as westerners think that is obvious for someone to be eager to achieve a better income, a better job, aim to wealth, for Thais is different...you notice it especially when you have to hire people. They simply don't care about work and it's not a matter of money.

I disagree, and think they do want money.

They just aren't that bothered about the pittance they get paid.

Offer them 5,000bht/day and see if they're more interested.

That still won't make them conscientious workers.

It's been a steady decline from over a decade ago, probably longer.

 

The reason is always the same: too many tourists compared to natives. It's human nature, people stop caring when there's another sucker waiting in the line. Mass tourism is something that must be combated at global level. Stay home.

I've learned that here. You can throw a billion baht at something and the quality is still rock bottom. Work ethic is a rare beast in the tropics.
