    Are you thinking about leaving Thailand?

    Been reading that ridiculous forum for the past week and every second thread is about Thailand going down the toilet and how things ain't like before.

    Seriously, even a seriously serious whiner like myself can't help but notice that most whines are from sexpats complaining about prices going up and their inability to purchase whores like before. Come on, Thailand is not going down the shitter, you are....let's be honest, eh?

    I think when one posts a whinge or rant and says they are leaving Thailand one needs to really consider the source. I would venture to say that those that post that are malcontents. They were not happy in their home country and then came here and it ended with the same result. Its those same folks that are also whinging about what the next 5 years will be like. They become seriously affected by TV news and all the idiots that post about it. While I do not have numbers I would guess that a great majority of TV members have no life and are bored shitless and sit around all day pounding on their keyboards in some hope they can keep their sanity.

    Are things going to change here...you bet. It has to as it evolves. Will the changes be favorable... Who knows but I think it all depends on how one adapts to the changes.

    It's a News item ... -- Copyright Thai Visa News 2019-01-25

    And it's base data was
    Facebook users were asked the simple question in the straw poll: Would it be better or worse for an expat to live in Thailand in five years?

    25 years ago it would have been mostly whining about the traffic, and how there would never be any alternative. Then twenty years ago there were people pretty much hoping construction workers would die, thereby proving the superiority of the western world having spent, in many cases, decades living somewhere they love to declare a shithole.

    It's most odd.

    Just drink up and fuck off then.

    Banned? I can't believe you aren't one of their top posters. They might have had an amnesty and maybe you can return? We live in hope.

    Traffic has ALWAYS been whined about. It's a damn sight better today.

    25 years ago the whining was about inflation, prices always going up, hell taxi motocy's at 20 baht, the requirement for motorcycle helmets, playing chicken at the zebra crossings, bar fines, BIB's on the take, virtually NO western products available - those that were cost a ton, corruption, how much votes'll cost this election cycle, timeless whines, mostly in the papers, internet in its infancy

    you know, the good old days, no sky train, bangkok a virtual parking lot, only place you found english signs was embassy row and the business district

    Patpong in full swing

    oh, and leaded gas, massive clouds of bright blue motorcycle exhaust when the light Finally did change

    They are down to comparing prices at McDonald's.

    It almost sounds like me trolling.

    ^And this forum, where he's asked where to buy sex-toys in Bangkok, how much barfines cost, and where to get a kitchen job with a work permit. Yeah this is exactly the sort of thing someone who isn't a clueless fucking wannabe asks all the time

    20 years ago in 1999 I was a 25 year old earning loads of money in Bangkok, best time of my life was in heaven. Never had anything to whine or complain about the place was fucking mental. Would I want to live in Bangkok in 2019 as a 45 year old, would I fuck.
