Orange Dragon

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.

Come on gentlemen. There is another forum that encourages that kind of crap if you just want to get online to be a dickhead.

Name and shame them.

On my last two or even three trips through Phnom Penh, it was painfully obvious that Trashpats had somehow arrived at PP airport through dumb luck, did a perfectly timed face-plant before the immigration Wait Here line, slid on their own drool past the immigration officers and found themselves nose-first in last night's garbage remnants on St. 172.

Are these the ones that say stuff like, "Tee Nee", "Py Nai", "Py Laew" at Pochentoeng and expect everyone to stand in awe at their impeccable Thai, which no one understands?
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

You'd be amazed at the amount of khmers that understand thai.

Very few of the trash pats, i assume ur refering to the worst of pattaya trash, speak more than 10 words of thai that even a thai finds hard to understand lol

Indeed. In the bars, too. Suddenly I hear "suway mahk mahk" and I want to puke.

True, many have a smattering of Thai. But what an insult to Cambodians when these bozos bring Thai to Cambodia. It's like the French who think they're speaking the World's Only Language and expect everyone to understand. (I've got so many examples of this in Thailand.) (I was referencing ot mien kampf's: ". . .3rd Class - trash bottomfeeders who fell off the very bottom of the Thai expat scene.") So, yeah.

Have to agree 100% about the french. Here they get really upset at the thai staff when they dont understand their fench. So what to they do ?
They speak french Louder at them !!

I recall after spening 2 years in Zaire, teaching in french and thinking , wow cool, i can go to paris and fit in.
So after trying to start a few conversations with people and having them look at me like i was from mars and than replying to me in bad english,
i sore Never to speak it again!!!
