I don't think it was being stingy...it was being pigheaded stubborn....leave that attitude back in your home country....those behaviors are what get foreigners labeled as difficult to deal with. Go with the flow....your life will be easier and less stressful

You are right.  The further away i live from farangs the nicer the locals are to me   55

BUT ........ to be fair I have gone through the different phases of "annoyance"  that shopping for 

something can bring out .  Yes,  often the salespeople ignore us.   Sometimes they converge on us

like chinese at a lunch buffet.   Rarely do they know the products or prices.   Hey, but often they are

cute   🙂  .  

Old age is a funny thing.  Sometimes one gets annoyed/ stressed so easily.   Sometimes we keep our

cool and manage to incorporate the mai pen rai  attitude.   Sometimes it depends which side of the bed I wake up on..... and how stiff (not that stiff, before the sexperts comment)  I am.

 

Kudos to bluesofa ..bs for short... to be able to handle the tomatoes being thrown at him with

a bit of humor.   We all can learn from that  .....

'Kudos to bluesofa ..bs for short'

Thanks, but is that a backhanded compliment i see before me, rotten tomatoes excepted (as opposed to accepted)?

17 baht would have an effect on me!!

 - I only ever have 30baht wallowing in my pockets...

As pedant, tell me more about how 30 Baht 'wallows' in your pockets.

How many years has this been going on, and more importantly is it the exact same 30 Baht?

If they had shirts, you could test the iron board too.

What a good idea. Mind you, the irony board is often closer to the mark.
