The People You Most Want To Avoid In SE Asia (and sometimes everywhere else too)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Mr Muay Thai - this guy is covered in Thai toos that he got from monks and he spends most days hammering the heavy bag. He’s ripped so usually wears sleeveless t shirts (local beer brand) to display his muscles and his tats. He’s had 9 fights (5 wins, 4 losses) and he had his wai cru (spelling?) routine is locked down. He doesn’t go to the gym he ‘goes training’ He works as an English teacher and hangs out in the bars where he enjoys the worship he receives from backpackers. He is known to say stuff like ‘living the dream dude, living the dream’ and ‘fight or flight motherfucka’.Deep down he’s desperately homesick and will eventually go home and back to his old middle management job once his extremely attractive local girlfriend gets pregnant. Then he might resurface every couple of years saying this time he’s in it for the long haul but of course he never stays.

Some of these are starting to get personal.

It’s not meant to be personal but as they are all too familiar to everyone and as we are all expats you might fall into a category. It’s not insulting, just an observation. I have already included myself as one of these dickheads.

The true dickhead Is the guy that doesn’t realise he is a dickhead and this makes him a cunt. The dickhead that is fully aware of his dickheadness becomes a likeable dickhead.

A bit of self knowledge goes a long way.

i never meet any of these types in Cambodia or Thailand as i dont frequent bars or places they, ( tourists) would hang out.
I am very happy in my own private world with my gf.
Thank god.

When i did frequent bars an someone tried to start a conversation, i played deaf.

One thing i have learned after being over in se asia awhille,
we were ALL someone else back home

I never go to bars either and mostly keep to myself. However I have come across people over the last x amount of years.

As much as I know nothing about SJC, he does hit a nail squarely on the head. I've read most of his descriptions, nodded sagely and thought to myself the exact name of the person he describes. (Including me.) But @SternAAlbifrons made a fairly valid point. To look upon others in a derisory manner, might say more about us than them. Which is why I have decided that all CEO members are upstanding, awesome and all-round magnificent people. Everyone else? Well... :stir:
