Why are farangs rude to each other?

What is this thread actually about? It seems to be built on the premise that farangs are ruder than other races. Nothing could be further from the truth. IME, in order of rudeness are:

 

1. Chinese.

 

2. Indians.

 

3. Russians.

 

English speaking farangs are way down the list.

 

Maybe you guys don't mix with others much as your social lives revolve around a barstool.

I think sometimes it's do with being new to tourism. Many Chinese are new to travel, and are one generation away from being dirt poor,  and are not adept at social niceties. 

They have no notion of personal space - two hours at a famous tourist attraction in Bangkok, and having Chinese jump queues, bump into you and just generally get in your face, turned me off them for a while. Spitting and such is not uncommon. They can be a bit too patriotic in an obnoxious way.

Most Chinese are nice though and have a good sense of humour.

If you saw some Aussies in the first wave of tourism, drinking and shouting in the 70's and 80's in Bali, it wasn't much better.

Never found Indians rude but haven't been close to many in Thailand. Some Nepalese at suit shops in Patong would drive you crazy. Suits you sir.

Russians often look surly and grim and ready for a fight but they tend to actually be polite.

When I think of it Americans tend to be polite. The old cliché of the loud American isn't as common as it once was.

I find that many of the westerners I come across have some quirks about them, or are total nutcases to be honest... Not all, but many... Thailand is a place for many misfits..

So many I've met, within a few minutes tell their amazing lifestory, which amounts to bs.   Socially inept misfit, who come here, & continue their daft lives.

And I apologise to all here............................

I had an American friend in Chiang Mai ( deceased now, sadly ) who was a really nice guy. Post retirement, he had done about 30 courses on subjects such as the Black/Scholes formula, the function of the Jesuits in the Roman Catholic Church, and the mating habits of African baboons.

When I was in Hong Kong, I found as individuals the Chinese were polite and friendly.

Hong kongers and mainlanders are night and day. HK should be an independent state.

The European handshake originated in the life preserving desire to show the opposition male that the right hand held neither knife,sword,flintlock pistol or Colt 45.

 

It must have been one hell of a day at the supermarket in downtown Chang Rai..

Result: the world's first Jesuit baboon troop option pricing formula.

I find that older people, particularly men, get impatient and cantakerous and yet we have bags of spare time.

We get impatient and cantankerous with stupidity, because we've had more exposure over the years.
