    Are a lot of older expat/farangs pompous bores?

    There's certainly no shortage of them from where I'm standing!

    I've met young guys here, full of themselves, that were more boring than Thai television.

    I'm mid 30's and disagree with the OPs suggestion. Age has nothing to do with it, it's more about who that person is. First day living down here I parked my car and some bellend old brummie gave me a mouthful saying he couldn't get out. I pointed out to him that his car had a reverse gear, and that he had just parked horizontally over 5 parking spaces. The Tool.

    However, he was the exception. Most duffers are good people and have relaxed into their lives here having cast away the bullshit.

    Now, the young'uns, the ones who married a whore, moved here, stumbling around trying to scrape a living, think they are jack the lad on account of how many bar girls they have split the whiskers of....they are arrogant bores. Not only are they loud mouths, they more than often have no success or anything to back up their inflated self ego. They married a hooker and opened a bar or real estate agency. Well done.

    If you are talking about older expats who have lived here for many years, they have a vast amount of experience living here and much can be learned from them if you just take the time to listen. Too many young know it all that are more of a pompous bore.

    Did you flounce from TV, Naam, or are you keeping up the ruse on both sites still?

    Well said mr P these characters make me laugh, they get married, still want to screw around then blame the mrs when it goes pear shaped. You can take the punter out of the bar but you can't take the bar out of the punter!

    Must be an universal cultural thing, less a age consciousness.

    So you're saying that most all Western folk of any age fit these lovely character traits?

    Standing somewhere else could well resolve the problem

    I was referring to offline, real, in-the-flesh expat/falangs.

    And they're in abundance in ol' Siam.

    Oh, I try to stay away from them as much as possible.

    It's just that I had to attend a party in a typical farang bar over the w'end. The regulars all fitted the mould described in the OP.

    He was getting quite bitter in his latest posts was the gent.
    Niggers, pakis and coons were all mentioned.
    He said he was going back to the UK not long ago. Maybe he was getting it all off his chest before his return, where those words will obviously be cowardly mumbled or thought

    How does every racist joke start?

    I have enough going on in real life without bigging myself up on an internet forum.

    If I'm going to get all pompous then I'll pick on some unsuspecting Revenue Department official; they're always good for a laugh.
