    Actually worked out quite well for me -neither I nor my significant other knew each other's language (she didn't speak a word) well enough to have a "real" argument. Although she is an expert at the "silent treatment". Another plus is the more or less built-in excuse of "just doesn't understand the language", go's along with standard number two "just doesn't understand the culture".

    Because the Boss gets to try the goods. No other reason.

    Times are a changing and fat or old foreigners are just that...fat or old. The Thai women nowadays have their own money, careers and jobs. They have no need to screw old foreigner men for money. If you are going to want to meet and date a pretty woman it's going to take some looks, a personality and of course a stable financial position.
    The central fact is that the scene has changed. Any girl with half an ounce of intelligence is not working in the bars. They are on line, and going to customers direct. Don't forget the farang scene has always been a small fraction of the total flesh trade. A girl can earn the same money through on line touting without needing to be in a bar for 8 or 10 hours every night getting groped by all and sundry.

    The central essence is that the hiring people look for someone who will not be a threat to them, and will happily settle into a subservient position. Hiring someone who can actually do the job - and may therefore be smarter than them - is against every grain in their body. So we end up staffed with drudges and drones. A number of times I heard that there was a great candidate who was passed over for someone more malleable and subservient.

    Now I sit on some hiring committees, so we can at least get some one who has a chance of doing the job.

    Nonsense. I relish intelligent debate. Defending my position is part of intelligent debate...unless it's arguing with people who simply don't understand the premise but think they do.
    Dunning-Kruger people, for example.

    Besides, being a sapiosexual, the package doesn't really matter to me.

    conicidentally, just this morning my wife showed me a "thing" going around on Thai social media. It shows two woman, pic 1 and pic 2. Pic one is of a young Thai woman who only her mother would say is ok looking, and most would say is downright ugly. Pic 2 is of a very pretty Thai girl. Pic one is of a girl with a masters degree and several other qualifications, while girl 2 has nothing. The question; Who would you hire? The vast majority of replies chose pic 2 to be employed while my wife chose girl 1 as the common sense (and only) option.
    I suspect, and like to think, most intelligent Westerners would employ girl 1... but maybe not TD members
    the question is are u to marry or fuck said girl. for a relationship girl one.. for a sexual encounter, girl two. but not necessarily so.

    aint that the truth, but aint it always been so. we called em jobsworths back in the day. hence i was always unemployable. and a pain in the arse to employers.

    I want competant employees. People who will speak up and introduce new ideas even if they're the floor sweepers.
    I'm sure I'm not alone in that, at least amongst employers outside of Thailand.
    u need to get out more.. maybe ur idea fits a small comp but all large conglomerates are the same ,, all use the yankie zionist format.. its even become law in most , if not all western comps. certainly in world wide finance

    like a bad SFX movie,

    Comply or die == compliance at the heart of business

    that works fine for a micro business or an early startup, but once you reach 100 or more employees, dummies are easier to hire and faster to put online with your corporate policies if you want to grow fast

    you really are naive, are you stuck in the 50s?

    The question was "who would you employ", so if your company has 100 or more employees, then ok.

    Intelligent, eh.

    Surely you realize that you've been ripped apart on here, to an absolute laughable degree, everyday for the last 2 years or so.... er, right?

    We are fortunate to be living through a golden age right now. Feast for many, famine for few. The Age of Obesity.

    When it all comes crashing down, well...

    More slender women will just be a silver lining I suppose.

    Cheap fatty foods with sugar laden soft drinks, and alcohol, can't forget the alcohol. All available, cheap, plentiful, available just about anywhere.

    Solving the world's hunger problem was naught but a ploy by the medico's to drum up more business.
