The 5 stages of 'who gives a f*ck?'

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

The 5 stages of 'who gives a f*ck?'

Post by vladimir » Sat May 17, 2014 6:19 am

I was chatting to a German guy yesterday, and it was interesting that his views on the important issues for this country were almost totally different to mine.

The 5 levels on a German expat's ’Give a f*ck-o-meter’. (level 5 is the highest)

1. There is a huge political protest march
Response: Sam Who?

2. Protesters/critics get killed/injured
Response: Pass me another beer

3. There is a power failure
Response: I hope it’s not for long, the beer will get warm.

4. The government cracks down on girlie bars
Bloody dictatorship we live in! This is a sign of bad things to come, mark my words…pass me another beer.

5. Alcohol and cigarettes are targeted for taxation
Response: Jeezuz! When are America and the UN going to do something? Can’t they see what is happening here? Have they
abandoned us? This is criminal! Bloody KR are still with us! Save us!
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)

LoL, mine start at the bottom of that list and move up.
