Drunk Isaan. People Every Day In Our Village

Recommended Posts

I used to live in my wife's village for one year. Yes, people get drunk and fight. But I didn't built a house there.

But people did and still do respect me for who I am. Nobody is angry with me when I don't buy them a drink, or join their Lao Khao sessions.

You wouldn't have such problems, if your wife would back you up, roughly speaking.

You should even take a look at a hotel room, where you're planning to stay one night. But you'd decided to built a house at a place, where you don't want to live.

Called Som Nam Naa. And the "drunk Isaan people in 'your' village used to live there before you. Most of them were even born there.

You obviously didn't do your homework.-wai2.gif

If Farangs would do their homework before buliding a house, "building-activities", initiated and paid by Farangs would probably come to a standstill. But they seem to prefer to do their "homework" afterwards. Some "Rude-awakenings" are inevitable.

Cheers.

That is a fair comment and I have had my quota but remember many house projects go on when the 'poor soul' is busy making the money overseas. So I recommend checking the ladies passport for frequent Cambodian (Casino) visit stamps.

Unless your building a cheap hut that's in keeping with the rest of the village, then who cares!

With 800+ posts rest assured this is not a troll.

I feel bad for the OP, it sounds like hes in a terrible situation. The same situation that leads to another popular thread http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/641618-miserableunsmilingand-forlorn-lookings-farangs/

i can never understand what post count has to do with trolling. in my estimation the best trolls are only accomplish with a few thousand posts under your belt.

I`ve read your second sentence 3 times and it still makes no sense. I realise many here aren`t native English speakers so I`m going to go by the old saying "if you can`t say anything nice, don`t say anything at all."

March, April, May is silly season around here, and the number of parties for Weddings, Funerals and Monkings peaks. Add to that there is very little to do down on the farm at this time.

So, the last few months I have endured the OP's gripes, but nowhere near to the same extent I may add.

If it were a daily occurrence, I would leave.

They will probably continue to sit and sleep on the floor like their ancestors did.

I recently spent a month in my Mrs village where her neighbour has recently had a new house built by an elderly farrang.

Inside is typical Western home with sofas and dining table etc When we joined them for dinner one night I thought it hilarious that they all snubbed the sofa and table in favour of sitting on the floor, on those wee rug things, eating their dinner the same way they previously did in their shack!

In the bathroom, despite having a top of the range power shower there is also a huge bucket complete with scoop for the water so they can wash in their traditional way. If you`ve spent all your life doing things a certain way you`ll never change!

Strange, my in laws have electric showers. I used to wipe my ass with toilet paper, now I use a bum gun, some people do change.

Bum Gun: Only way to go! Instead of smearing fecies all over your rear and possibly leaving the rest in a dormant stage in your underwear = Bum Gun is the answer. Woulden't miss it.

Tosh! When I was a lad lots of the working class in Yorkshire had back to back houses, outside toilets and no central heating. 55 years later they all live in double glazed, centrally heated ensuite houses. What makes you think that history will not repeat itself in Thailand, like it has done worldwide since time began?

Yes, some of the older members of my family feel more comfortable on the floor when they come round my house, but you wouldn't catch my daughter or her friends on the floor when there's a table and chairs to dine at and a sofa to watch TV from. Nor my wife and her friends (who of course are young enough to be my daughters :-) )

In our bathroom there is a huge bucket and scoop. My wife and children never use it .... I do!! It's the most invigorating method of showering.

God what you relax, you sound irate.

You`ve answered your own question, and agreed with me without realising it seems. The older generation will continue to do as they have done before, while the younger generation will use the new way. In time the older generation will die out and their habits with it.

My statement "If you`ve spent all your life doing things a certain way you`ll never change!" rings true. Even in your own family it seems.

So what exactly is "tosh"?
