    Thai Peeps - Not the sharpest.....right?

    I'll prolly get kicked from pillar to post on this one but who cares.

    So, it looks like the Poolcleaner has agreed to get to get married (again).
    While the missus was playing with my ***** his morning the subject of marriage came up and she was at us getting married later in the year.
    I've tried my best to scuttle this nonsense by saying that I will most likely have to return to Aus at some time because Thailand's immigration laws are well fucked.
    She took a very origional tack this time, using the legendary Thai custom of saving face as the reason for geting hitched.

    Yep, she put it to me like this..(not her words mind!)
    "For a Thai girl to stay with someone for a long time, it's not good unless they get married. So we need to get married. After that it's OK if you leave me!!!!!!!"

    Now I ask you, ain't she a sweetheart?

    I lay awake dreaming of other girls and saying 'sayonara' (la gorn inThai) to her and now she says "marry me and you can fuck off!"

    I'm so happy. She's just gone to the shops for 'gafe yen' and 'jok', pick up the Bangers Post and after which she will shag me. later on I shall mosey down to the salon and have a facial and pedicure and then call up Ying for our norty rendezvous later this arvy.
    Then to 'After Work' for pool with Moonfruit. Life is good!

    "Hang on pooly, you cnut" I hear you cry, "What's with the Thai peeps in the title, you idiot?"

    Oh yeah, the good folk at the BTS have recently installed automatic ticket vending machines in a few of the SkyTrain stations.
    I've noticed over the last month that they must have been installed for my convenience only as I've never seen any other fokker using them!!
    The Thais are still queuing up to change their 20 baht and then wait in line to get a ticket.

    That's just dumb guys!

    I am not sure about the ticket machines, I have always used them, as have all the Thais. They are not a recent addition, they were there right from the start.

    I and they queue up to get change for the machines, then buy an auto ticket.

    so Poolpeople are not the sharpest peeps?

    as to getting married!!! blimey mate, with your lifestyle you are hardly ready for any commitment, least of all some formal nonsense. Get married in her village without paper seems to satisfy most Thais for "face".
    I have reported your post

    Now DrAndy you're telling porkies, aren't you?

    Folks trust the poolcleaner when I tell you the ticket machines are a recent addition. DrAndy's point about queuing up for change falls flat on it's face because the ticket machines take coins and notes. You can put in anything to get a ticket. Are you Thai by chance DrAndy?

    They're very similar to the machines they use on the subway!
    Computer screen on which you punch in your destination and pop in the coins or note and Reg's your auntie!
    They'll still be in perfect condition in 20 years because only I use them!

    Oh no mate, no porkies!!

    the machines I have used only take B5 and B10 coins, hence the need for change

    maybe the ones you are talking about are brand new? Using notes was certainly not an option. As for using anything, that would be amusing!!

    hehehe.......so what are DrAndys?

    nya nya nya.

    I'm not sure what stations have them but I used the one at Victory yesterday and there was crowds of people getting change and using the old ticket machines and not a soul at the new one.
    hence the inspiration for me thread!

    Ah, I do like clarification

    I have not been in the system for some time, so I was talking about those old ones

    Yes, DrAndies can be a picnic a bit short of a sandwich, especially on Monday mornings

    perhaps its a distrust of putting money into a machine .....

    same thing happens at the airport - ques in front of the teller for the 500baht tax but there is always machines available

    and not just thai ppl doing this many farangs too!

    I don't suppose Dr Andy had enough time to propose, what with the other people in queue and all.

    I have personally used one of those machines at airport and have got nothing good to say about it.

    It didn't get credited and unfortunately that was the only Thai currency I was having on me. I had to run around, as my flight was due shortly, to get hold of some money changer. I had to run to the lounge as everyone already boarded the plane. Farking tension for nothing.
    I'd rather get me arse in que rather than using those machines in LOS. Never again.

    I never knew there was a machine at the airport - or are we just being nasty about Thai officials?

    Stay on topic please, pooly...

    So how do you feel about taking the big plunge?

    I personally think you won't have that many more lovely thai ladies asking you to marry them from now on, so you'd be bladdy crazy to turn her down!

    Wally, why on earth would pooly want to mary a guy? let alone the non exisetent son of his galfriend, pooly likes gals, loads of them actually, luckily he has to work for a living so cant spend most of his time practising impregnating gals.

    Oh NO!!! Do you mean I'm going to be poor?


    I'm not looking forward to the ceremony. It's going to be the same as you read about. 200 layabout Issanis drinking my money away while taking the piss out of the stupid farang!
    But as she said, once we're married it's OK to split up!!
    It will be the third time for me so I'm well done with marriage anyway but I'll prolly get a new visa so that's cool!

    Yeah man. After four U.S. (CALIFORNIA no less!!) marriages I am looking forward to being a flaky fuckin' husband to my fifth! Sweet as it she is there is nothing like the freedom of a Thai marriage!
    On the subject of machines vs the Queue? Now if you've lived here a while then you know how well maintained Thai machinery is. Fuckin 20 baht note's a half decent meal around these parts.
    Thais ain't always stupid.
    just usually.

    I think Nana has one, not that I ever use Nana BTS station and Chit Lom.
    Victory as I previously said but Asoke hasn't got one.
