Kampot Community NOT Happy About This Backpacker Going Around Tagging Everything with Blue Marker

From the Kampot Noticeboard:

"Our 'friend' who previously tried to steal potted plants from Jem Pumford's place (Couch Potatoes) is back.... this time he 'graffiti' tagged our bar with a blue-green marker and thought the nearby table of Kampot expats enjoying themselves wouldnt notice. We thought that wasnt very nice so we made him clean it up himself, in front of the 30-40 people who thought he was a ****.

Headsup!
Cheers"

I was thrown off by the title-- at first who cares what color it is but your just explaining the story.. And "tagging" is the right term... at least in NYC..but it's an old school term
There isn't even graffiti on the trains anymore.... and midtown looks like Disney world

I see a blank space on his forehead that should be tagged.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

People probably wouldn't care AS much if he was doing this on walls outside or in Siem Reap.

Kampot expats pride themselves on being so relaxed and "chill" about everything, until someone says something bad about a Kampot expat-owned business, or walks out on a $2.50 bill at such a business, or draws on a beam in that business with blue marker. Then they all turn into a Khmer-like aggressive mob.
