Farang who "leave their wallet at home" or otherwise skip the beer round.

I knew a guy who would take his wad of bills from his cup at the bar and stuff them into a neighbors cup when the neighbor wasn't looking.....

there are a lot of the cheap c..ts we call them here in Phuket ....

 

best solution we use is always make them buy the first round, watch how they stay until it comes back to

their turn to buy the second round then say ok we all had enough lets go...

 

we weeded the ones out especially from the golf club ... when someone wins generally the money stays on the table and

we drink it until finished the winnings .... the cheap guys put in their pocket and leave .... but watch when they don't win 

and they stay around the next week to drink all the winnings ... we keep a close eye on this and put them to shame .....

 

you need to have a thick skin in our group ......

 

happy new year to everyone and a prosperous 2017 for all xxx

Actively worrying about splitting the price of a tower of Chang makes you among the lower level of bottom feeders by default. If somebody does this it happens once and if you have any class you ignore it and it ends right there.

I couldn't imagine worrying about who had how many glasses of Chang on a regular basis.

Splitting a bill is not the same as buying rounds, but I certainly agree worrying about how many glasses of Chang has been drunk would never be a concern of mine.

Buy your own or just keep your own bill pot (depends on payment system where you drink).

Rounds is a daft tradition and as far as I know is likely only perused by those that drink together regularly here, which gives it chance to even out if everybody gets his shout.

I was glad to get away from it as it tends to either speed you up or slow you down depending on the company and other circumstances.

Also beware of some of the "clicky" bars where they ring the bell all the time.

 

Yeah, I think you hit it on the head. I frequent an expat bar area in a non-tourist town in the South--the expats are local residents, many O&G rotation workers. Buying rounds is quite the norm in these bars, but everybody knows each other. Some of the bar maids even know which punters are not included in rounds.

 

Did you ever notice how girls seem to come out of the woodwork when you ring a bell?

Many years ago when I used to drink in Washington Square you could tell which bars had a party on that night. And sure as eggs is eggs there would be people there who you only ever saw at other bars where there was a party going on enjoying themselves at somebody elses expense.

 

They would also be around the bars on a darts night for the free food.

Yeah noticed that quite a few farangs aren't generous, even the ones who act rich.
Had that with a musician I met a few yrs back. Tight as a snake. Then the bf of a girl I know. Literally paid for everything the 2 days I was with them
There are exceptions inc a nice couple I met through TV

I have known personally of a character who used to turn up at funerals for a feed. Not good.

Don't know that I agree necessarily. I know of a student in a First World country who turns up at various local food courts during busy periods and feasts on what people don't eat and leave behind when they depart. Gate-crashing "gala" openings even larger company gatherings and having a free feed is a popular pastime in some circles. Then there's the whole "freegan" movement - collecting food "waste" from bins outside supermarkets where the food has reached its "use by" date. A senior friend at home always buys reduced-price goods from his local supermarket, never paying full price for anything, because it is perishable food they will otherwise throw away

Each to their own, but a funeral with food paid for by the mourning family?

Most such gatherings are over-catered. What would you prefer - that the excess be thrown away?

Yep, but that is me.

Or given to the needy, after the funeral.

I guess 3 funerals a day is all they need.

There are far too many low-lifes about who are more than willing to let someone else pay their way through life. 

Apparently rich people often have their drinks bought for them either by those who want to prove they're just as good or they want a favor, either specifically or by way of sucking up. Human nature's an odd thing

I guess that is the difference between us - I have an entirely utilitarian and amoral attitude to almost everything

A few years back my wife and I had tickets to a gala performance at the Sydney Opera House worth several hundred dollars. My wife became ill so I took the tickets to the opera house and saw two well dressed tourists from Europe taking photos. I asked them if they wanted to attend, which they did, so obviously I gave them the tickets. Their eyes popped out and I never saw them again.

Of course we all have stories like that and it makes perfect sense.

But that isn't what the op is about.
