    Ignoring people

    This is one of the most fucked up of Thai habits. And before the Thaiophiles start with their personal attacks along the lines of "If I was Thai I'd ignore you too" or whatever shite they can dream up, I have a number of friends who agree with this.

    Most Thais will ignore any sms that makes them feel even 1% uncomfortable (unless they are stalking someone with SMSs, in which case they'll never stop). Try reminding them to respond to you, and you just dig yourself in deeper in being ignored.

    Social fucking retards. The whole social system here is pathetic, and I've seen every side to it.

    If I was Thai, I'd ignore you too.

    Man...couldn't agree with you more.
    Thought it was just me at first when they ignored some e-mails.
    Now, I don't even bother to write unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Oh, and if you complain about being ignored, then you are guilty of making people lose face, because of course, this is the land where to complain about someone behaving badly is far worse than being that someone....

    I think your girlfriend's giving you a hard time mate. Is she not replying to your text messages? Are you texting her some annoying shit? Anyway, this is LOS, their land, and they can do anything they want to us aliens.

    who do ignore your sms at the moment, Smeg? Is it a girl?

    Hahaha.. maybe she didn't want to talk to you but it's hard for her to tell you the truth then she just THOUGHT "ignore" is the best thing to do.

    Some people when we say "fuck off" then they understand and leave us alone but some, even if we have said that many times but it seems they don't understand. So "ignore" must be a good thing to do.

    I never reply to text's unless an emergency although I'm not sure what sort of emergency it would take to get someone to press all those little buttons rather than just calling. I've also never had an SMS stalker

    How right you are. there must be a few of them capable of being genuinely pleasant, but not many.

    I'm VERY GLAD that I'm not one of the rose-tinted spectacle brigade that take their shit and justify it as being an interesting part of the culture. (ie put up with it because they are stuck with it, no way out)

    What's even worse, Smeg, you are stuck with yourself, and a few phone numbers of Thai girls the rose-tinted spectacle brigade might mistake for real interest on part of the 'girls'.

    One moral of the story is

    Know when to stop bothering someone


    That's how I learnt to deal with it.

    Thats a very easy assumption to make, that I'm "bothering" someone, but its not what I'm referring to. Of course, I meet the occasional girl who gives me her number and yet she has a horribly possessive boyfriend, or she was just being "nice" but has no interest in Western men. I learned to spot that type of girl ages ago.
    No, what I'm referring to are girls that I've known for a while, who I socialise with regularly, but who seem to suffer from occasional social spasams, or who really don't understand the social etiquite of letting people know "yes or no" if you are free and likely to turn up etc. I spent more than a decade socialising in the UK with many nationalities without such weirdness.

    Pat, I just have to add that 100% of the girls I have met who have gone on to later adopt this "yes, I met you, we had a nice chat and swapped numbers, but now you've contacted me again, stop bothering me" attitude are your beloved black and whites. The office girls seem to have grown out of such egotistical patheticness.

    Depends what age you go for really....I'd bet that I'm more better looking than you so I don't get much of that bullshit you describe lately.

    You will scare girls off if you dissect every simple aspect of life to them like MR LOGIC from Viz magazine.

    Maybe you are right. These are top girls 90% of the time, but just fuck things up with the occasional complete breakdown in communications. Never mind, millions more out there....

    Maybe you are, who cares. However, If we are into making petty comparisons, then I know for sure that my English is better than yours!

    Fancy a pulling contest sometime? I bet i already date hotter chicks than you...

    When I saw this post, I immediately pictured a wrinkled old man sitting in the corner of the pub listening to a conversation between two young men, bored and needing to add the occasional completely ignored comment
