Good smacking is prob what would be needed. I think anything less, prob the ignorant c*nt wouldnt get through his thick skull on what proper behaviour is and how to deal with issues without berating the thai staff. :o

I have found that a quiet word,if possible, given away from the immediate area,sometimes works....but one must ALWAYS remember the old aphorism....."it is impossible to educate pork"

I think anyone insensitive, rude and belligerant enough to treat someone like that, wouldn't think twice of belting you in the jaw if you confronted them as well. I would approach such a wild, irrational animal with caution.

No worries if the lad wanted more - we are quite capable of assisting his requests. :o

I was in a Soi 4 bar (back in my single days) and a couple guys came in. They had obviously been there before and knew some of the ladies.

They proceeded to grab, and paw. The ladies did not say much, other than try to fend them off.

I commented to the (obviously) senior man. We got into a bit of a verbal exchange, but he eventually quieted down before anything physical happened.

They left soon after to different haunts, and the ladies actually bought me a beer (I had talked with them a lot over the last few days (no dates))

Very disrespectful.

Hi guys,

I'm not a resident of Chiang Mai or Thailand in particular.. yet :D But I could not help replying to this post. We all have a duty to interfere or help in anyway that we can if someone is being belittled or in any similar situation where one feel it is called upon. Just the fact that one feel embarrased on anyones behalf should be a sign that the situation is not "appreciated".

I have worked as security guard and bouncer at various establishments and we have had a zero tolerance for behaviour as described here. And I have felt and interfered just like the guys here, however the best way we found to deal with these arrogant carachters was to approach them friendly at first, try to make them walk some steps with you away from the situation, then increase the tone in your voice and tell it straight to them that this is not a situation that is appreciated or that anyone would like to see escalate, least of all him..

Believe it or not, I'm not a big fellow in any respect, but this approach have softened guys that easily could have eaten me for breakfast. :o

Gentlemen, just imagine it was your wife or girlfriend that was embarrased, wouldn't you like that someone stood up for her... :D

Not so sure your idea of solving the problem would improve the hospital staff's general image of Westerners.

I recall a number of years ago when I was in Pattaya with my good mate the Mysterious Aussie who was once involved in The Escape. We were in an open fronted bar at about midday having a quiet beer whilst watching the world go by.

Unfortunately the peace and tranquility of the establishment was shattered by a loud mouthed drunken scandanavian who was verbally abusing his wife (also scandanavian). This abuse turned physical when he slapped her across the face. My mate the Mysterious Aussie being an ex-cop was fairly piste off by this behaviour but held back. The staff of the bar were also piste off with this clown and when one of the girls told him to leave he had a swing at her as well. That was enough to set my mate off. He confronted the guy saying if he wanted to belt someone around to try him. One swing from the scandanvian was followed by numerous from the Mysterious Aussie which resulted in the aggressor finding himself semi-conscious on the footpath outside the bar.

Not only did the wife of the scandanavian thank the Mysterious Aussie but so did all the staff of the bar and numerous shop and other bar staff along the street. Apparently this clown had been causing trouble in a number of other establishments over a few days.

I have no idea about tourists, but with business people, it's easy.

If you have a German on the wrong side, just tell him that he behaves like an (US) AmErican.

That will shut him (her?) up immediatedly.

Same with the Chinese, just say they behave liKe a Japanese tourist > PEACE :o

Maybe, maybe not :D

Meadish, this is why the English get a bad reputation for fighting in Thailand. It's generally from the tourists trying to act the big man in front of the Thai ladies. A German is the obvious target for the typical British thug. :o
