Drunk old men

   I do not know anybody who lives such a life the OP 's on about. How comes?

 

          Maybe just because I don't wanna hang out with such individuals?

 

    

 

In my ten years spent in Thailand I never saw any persons such as the OP describes. Except for Thai cops. Oh man, they are the very worst drunks I've ever seen, and with guns yet!

You do come across as a complete Wowser......some of these guys have worked at a Sh1tty factory job for the last 40---50 years and been in an unhappy relationship to boot----let them enjoy their last few years, even if what they are doing may shorten that time.

.

You have done something that has changed your life----fine----great go preach it somewhere else,........................Please...............:coffee1:
 

Since this is the I drink too much forum, I believe this is the place to preach and you and the five posters who liked your post are wack jobs.  Am I correct or did I miss something?

In defense of these old guys i can think of a few points

-  They CAN afford to do what they do.(drink and play with Thai fillys)

-  They dont have to worry about being an English teacher and go through all the kow-towing that envolves.

-  They are actually INVITED to this country with a legit visa classification..dont have to worry about being a perpetual      tourist, illegal worker, poor English teacher, border runner.

 

Oh, and a lot of them i see are actually in better bodily shape than the younger ones

 

Oh really?

If they can afford to play with the fillies, why do so many of them complain about the rising price of a "short-time" then?

Why is there a collective howl of anguish among farang senior citizens when the price of a Western breakfast increases by 10 baht?

I sure don't hear younger guys whinging about the cost of a beer, a meal or a short time as much as the fixed income oldies

 

Most of the time, English teachers are working legally and are at least trying to do something positive for the country.

Pensioners aren't invited here - they're tolerated here.

You need to put the bottle down, grandpa. 

How often have you been to a party and had the host ask you to show your invite every hour?

This thread brings home to me just how different our two worlds are, semi rural northern Thailand and Pattaya, two complete opposites in every respect. I ask you, given that is true, how can two people, one from each location, possible ever hope to agree about anything regarding Thailand, neither has a clue what the other is actually talking about let alone seen anything of it to any great degree, in recent years (thankfully).

So basically if you have a good visa and you're not broke, getting loaded  day in and day out is OK; fair enough,I guess.

I sort of agree with you Op and there are certainly some out and about in Chiang Mai as you describe. However look at the level of binge drinking (more of a youngsters pusuit) that exists for example in the UK. Binge drinking wasn't heard about when i first started visiting bars about 40 years ago.

 

In Chiang Mai the most unpleasant drunks i see (in terms of being rowdy, beng shirtless, swearing etc) are the young guys and girls walking to or coming out of the nighclub Spicy between 11.30 p.m and 01.30a.m. Nearly all of them seem to be completely wasted, they maybe recover quickly the next day but what about the next week the next month, the next years of their lives?

 

As MissAndry says why do we get so concerned about the way other people behave. In the past Year in CM i have only once had reason to feel the need to get away from an unpleasant drunk, He was nether young or old, definitely middle aged !

Binge drinking has been going on since man first  started crushing grapes. In Scotland 35 years ago I sure did it with many others.

Yep the old boys don't look too clever, the error here is the attempt to suggest young guys do it better!

 

Come on guys let us be honest here, there are some happy drunks, but as a general rule of thumb, unless they are in a similar state, most people prefer to avoid the company of drunks, young, or old, male or female. The exception being those that seek to profit.

 

'Pensioners aren't invited here - they're tolerated here'

 

Oh boy........and you think 'young' piss heads are not?

This is a forum to help people stop drinking and you are making fun of people who stop drinking.  Do you think that is appropriate or somehow fun?  Your inexcusable sense of humor might have prevented someone from getting help.  Alcohol harms more people in Thailand both Thai and Farang than anything else.  If you think all the death and pain and hardship caused by excessive drinking is a laughing matter - up to you-

I would say that on the average - a retired guy spends an hour a year and 1900 baht with the Thai government to stay in Thailand.  Compared to the amount of paperwork to stay almost anywhere else that is a deal and I have to think retirement is encouraged by the Thai government.  

 

I've met many English teachers and only one with a work permit and none trying to do anything other than earn a living.  100% would have left the teaching profession if any - any- other work was available that required no experience or education.
