Drunk old men

QED!

Au contraire! Seen versus imagined or perceived are very different things, a bit like having a survey to conclude nationally based on a sample of ten people.

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.

 

Asking for proof is a cliched response for those with no argument is it? Really? I mean really really?

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.

 

Lower Suk at 0400 sitting at these little tables. 

 

The bars on Soi 4 at 1100. 

 

These are some very sad locations.

Exactly, why would a person be there/go there and is there any age restrictions in force, like, over 45 not allowed, or similar.

Nope. I just happen to live close to that area and, believe me, it's mostly old men pissing it up. The younger guys are heading home from clubs like Sugar or Climax with a rental.

We used to stay in the area when we would come thru BKK. 

I am an early riser and would get a coffee & eggs at Foodland. 

I made a quick beeline on the streetside of the kiosks and food stalls rather than "walk the line"  of hookers and drunks. 

 

I don't know any more about the rules of that area except you definitely want to wear a long sleeve shirt to avoid skin-on-skin contact as all the hustlers, ladyboys, touts, vendors, etc would grab your forearms as you would go by. 

 

Long sleeve shirts and walk the street side on the backside of the stalls.

 

and good luck getting the Foodland cook to not saturate the eggs in some kind of processed lard. The eggs in Thailand are wuite fresh but the way they deep fry them is a sin.

 

Cheers

Why do so many posters on this forum worry about what other people do?

Old guys getting drunk ......... why not?

White people not saying hello to other random white folk ........ up to them?

People on bikes wearing lycra ......... why shouldn't they?

Older men and young Thai women ......... if they're both happy with the arrangement, why shouldn't they?

 

Live and let live, I try and mind my own business.

So many complaints about what other people are doing, get a life of your own.

 

Ha !

 

I thought I was the only guy who noticed that.

 

Why do farangs always slink past a fellow farang with a look of guilt on their face?

 

maybe the OP can do a story on that subject soon  ;-)

It amazes me to that quite a few younger Posters seem to believe that they are ageless,  they are the 'old men' of the future. Will they behave any better, i doubt it !
