Fair enough, I expect it was the tone I read into BDS and JL discussing the fact that prices were about right, ergo the guy was wrong to complain. OTOH there were also people saying that the stiletto shit was OOO. Let's not mention FLB. Fourkinnel was the first post that really got to the point for me.Username Taken wrote: ↑Sat Feb 18, 2017 8:42 pmI just re-read the entire thread but couldn't find anyone on this forum blaming the foreigner.juansweetpotato wrote: ↑Sat Feb 18, 2017 7:17 pmI agree^ . People on these forums have a tendency/ love-lust to always blame the foreigner. I think they are right some of the time, but it is very irksome to hear it continually when the SEAsians are so renowned for price-hicking. An old guy gets a stiletto heel in the eye, and the vast majority of posters on sites like these say he's a cunt and deserved it.Fourkinnel wrote: ↑Sat Feb 18, 2017 1:40 pmShe fucked up for sure!. At the beginning the guy was still seated! It's not like he was walking away refusing to pay. Although they did later. But why would you pay after that treatment? You should be able to contest the price without crap like this. They often pad the drinks bill or get it wrong, I've had to question many bills, especially when with friends. sometimes I just pay if its not a crazy amount and tell them don't agree and won't be back!
80, 90 + baht in a bar like this was normal last year when i visited, but hard to tell here if it was the price of the drink or the total bill that was the problem.
Perhaps you were generalizing re forums in general, or something.
Let's also not even mention, what seems to have become, the Daily Mail cum Daily Express /Sun site.
And it must have taken me all of 5 days to realize that the Thais lose it at the drop of a hat. 7 odd years in SEA. 2 months of them in Thailand. Fly to BKK and out. I hope to be flying out of HCM from now on.
