Drunk old men

As opposed to the younger men who have lots else to do but instead choose to get hammered to oblivion. They are living the dream, for the moment, puffing away on their future wife who is barely over 21 years of age. 

 

They stumble home with their rental/freebie and act surprised when, after several months they invariably are hooked and wind up moving to Thailand to marry - divorce and loss of all funds typically follows.

 

Many feel they have to make up for past rejections back home, an inadequate supply of nubile wenches where they live or rotting in past marriages/working like dogs to retire somewhere nice but mostly, many do it because they're desperately sad, broken, lacking direction, unemployable, broke inside.

 

You see how dangerous it is to generalize and attack older people, just for what you perceive their lifestyle to be!

 

I don't see younger guys indulging in this type of behavior as often as I see the old boys do so. 

 

I go by what I see and what I've seen is lots of long-in-the-tooth berks trying to rediscover their youth and behaving like teenagers when their bodies can't handle the strain.

 

Walk past any beer bar in Lower Sukhumvit and the overwhelming majority of the sad, beer-sodden faces you'll see are those of senior citizens. Younger guys don't generally come here looking to get married - they get laid, they pay their money and they bounce. Admittedly, older guys - in general - do come here with much the same attitude but then decide they need someone to care for them in their dotage and invariably choose their caregiver unwisely.

you miss the point - young people can recover - for the old men of Pattaya, it's too late.

I haven't been to Pattaya for at least eight years so I can't speak about the things you see on Lower Sukhumvit, but I don't see that the behaviour of the younger generations today is doing too much different from what you see, be it in Pattaya, Ibiza, Costa Del fish and chips or where ever, they are just at an earlier stage of the cycle.

 

 

 

But as the OP said, the young can recover.

 

A lot of old boys are ending up in hospitals with bills they can't pay

As said, drunk young people are a "bounce back" situation - there is nothing sadder than a drunk old man making his lonely way back home - totally unaware of what an image he portrays....and usually oblivious the next day too.

 

almost all of us have been drunk at some time or even many times, but it is knowing when to give up that requires critical thinking and a little self-knowledge..

Chiang Mai - you seem to be having difficulty getting the point of the post......i wonder why?

 

and "statistics"???? - that cliched response is usually reserved for those without an argument.
