    Working with Thai's(lucky as shite)

    Do any of you people work directly with Thai's all day, i work with a few and the one i work with directly just bugs the crap out of me, he never turns up on time, dont know f#$k all when he does turn up and will lie to the hilt and spend hours trying to do something rather than admit to me or ask for my help(which would take 1 minute) and then when the boss is there pretends he is busy until gone then back onto facebook!
    I tell ya it is nothing short of buggin, do any of you guys have any similar situations?

    I manage a team of 20 Thais and 3 expats.

    The Thais are great apart from one I have problems with, though he's coming around.

    Hard working, pro-active and thouroughly deserving of the decent salaries they are paid.

    They're like that in all aspects of life. It's the Thai way. It gets up my nose that they turn up late, or not at all sometimes, but what can you do ? We have a cleaner who turns up when it suits her. I tell the missus to get rid of her but she wont as she doesn't want to upset her. They drive me crazy as well.

    I had a Thai divemaster working for me, he was the best worker in our shop, smart, dedicated, hard working and willing to do anything asked of him.

    Thats the good part.

    About once a month he would just disappear for 5 or 6 days getting on the piss and spliffing up, it used to drive my partner's insane.

    When he showed up again he'd be a mess for 2 days recovering from the party time and then work brilliantly till the next time he disappeared.

    They wanted to sack him but there was no way that i would let them as i really liked him, he was a great fella and his 3 weeks of great work made up for his 1 week on the piss.

    This is Thailand dudes, we must do things Thai way and besides that it was'nt a matter of life and death when he went walk about.

    Foking aussie aboriginals can do it, so why not my top mate " peeak ".?

    I miss peeak as he was my great friend .
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Amazingly facebook hasn't been banned where I work either...

    If I was the boss (haha!) it would be banned in a second...teakhouse too.

    But seeing as how I'm not...
