    Todays the day the Farang has had his picnic!

    Finally! After nearly 10 years - I can have a party - NOW FINALLY the missus understands! THE PENNY HAS DROPPED!

    Nearly every single job we have had done here, nearly every "so called" worker over the past 10 years has in one way or another managed to rip off/steal/swindle a little because they know the wife has a farang husband.

    In many cases, it is a little bit. And to be honest, I generally turn a blind eye - the stealing of a beer a few cigs, whatever. (I know, they are pretty poor)

    However, it escalated (in the wifes eyes when they robbed her of some empty paint containers - the plastic 5 gallon things - see they can use these)

    Then about 50 metres of highly priced copper cable went astray after the lightening rods were fitted - I said nothing as it was a pretty fair price for the deal.

    But, cynical as I am, over the years I have seen so called "trusted" "friends" eye things up and help themselves - and when I complained - I was a tight arse or I "didn't see who took it"

    For the past three years she has held her faith in this slimy bastard from the next village, he has been given some simple tasks to do - which he inevitably fails to complete - yet still for whatever reason (Kreng Jai I think) gets paid. This sems to be solely down to the fact that in the past I have been paying him.

    Detested the RAT of a man the first time I set eyes on him - and I think the feeling was mutual!

    Despite my protestations and misgivings - my wife always hired this old twat and his wife first.

    What the farang believed/thought was secondary - he was an old man that could trusted!

    Well, the fucker has shown his true colours this week - now she realises she has been ripped off for work not done, money spent on insecticide (pocketed) money spent on fertilizer (pocketed) money spent on labour (pocketed)!

    It's like music to my ears!

    The really sad thing is - she is prepared to go along with these cnuts until the rice is harvested, and then look for someone new!!!!

    Unbelievable! By the time they come to harvest the rice the bastards will have cleaned her out!

    Put up with a thief for another half year just to prevent "Rocking The Boat"

    Her own son needs a job, and I told her to let him take care of the rice - but they would rather keep these fleecing shits fleecing them than lose face! I already told her she can "squirm" out by using the lads work situation - but she still thinks she will lose face! Lose face to thieves!!!

    What the hell is wrong with calling a spade a spade and a thief a thief? - no wonder they get walked over!

    Not wanting to be a "Told You So!" but for 10 years they ignored every piece of advice I gave them, and today "TOLD YOU SO! TOLD YOU SO!

    There will be blood!

    Yes, I know, but at last she can see the light! Thai Fuck Thai - Not Thai Rak Thai!, and I will be honest, it gives me great satisfaction that she can now see what some of these bastards are all about!

    They have ignored every piece of advice over the past few years - to their cost - they never listen to a farang - but, like I say, it' my picnic tonight!

    They can stand by and watch the farang lose a million baht because of thir stupidity - but fuck - 50 satang wasted at THEIR expense - whoa - it's a different ballgame - they want retribution - when it's us that loses the money - it's KEE JEE, or FARANG MAI KOW JAI KOHN THAI - FARANG KEE NOK! 50 baht out of pocket and they want to bring on the four horsemen!

    Which forum will you be moving to ?

    Make sure you ask first that calling someone's wife a whore is acceptable

    Not really, the original post was not offensive. What is offensive is people labelling my missus a "whore".

    If they want to take a jab at me OK, but don't suggest things they know nothing about.


    You post here, I have a go at you now and again, all in good fun (most of the time) but I really wouldn't insult your family.

    I was only pissed off because my replies seemed to be being blocked and I was unable to respond to the "Whore" remark - which to be honest was out of order.

    In the OP there was nothing to suggest that either my wife or myself rented out any parts of our genitalia to get the rice planted, or have fertilizer applied - maybe it was the fertilizer that got it a bit confusing!

    OK, now I understand - it was being moderated? if I get the drift of things..

    At the time it appeared like I was getting blocked from replying...I am a bit slow you know.

    when the one guy arrived he measured up the job and then started to talk about 6000 baht per meter for the job.
    The silly fcuker assumed that I was dumb farang and he was gonna stitch up the mia farang.
    The next day when i went back round his place there was another guy doing the work...for 1000 baht m2.

    Tell me about it! They assume we are all millionaires (Well I was once a millionaire - I changed a few thousan German Marks to Yugoslavian Dinars - those were the days! - Needed a suitcase to carry it out of the bank, the Thai system would have worked well there, you could have charged for beers and food by the kilo - 1 beer = 1 kilo of Dinars)

    today I figure a 150 bt is a fair price for a farang to get a tuk tuk from Vientiane to the friendship bridge, so I engage a TT driver in negotiation, how much? I ask.
    60,00 kip he replies, fvck off! and then a counter offer of 300 Bt comes back, I say 100 Bt and thats it, he replies 40,000 kip thinking this stupid Farang won't be able to do the sums.
    We agree on a 20,000 kip, he moans all the way to the bridge and when he arrives he moans to every Tuk tuk driver around him.
    I give him 20,000 kip and I tell him, I would have given you an extra 10,000 kip but you moaned so much that I won't.
    Now you would have thought, that as I can converse in reasonable Thai and I had me 50% Thai daughter with me that the TT driver would have made the reasonable assumption that I know the ropes, but sadly his greed over came any logical thought that he could summon.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    Understand, it used to be the same here, but recently, the thieves have been coming around during the night and stealing pumps, engines, trailers.
    The bastards even wait until there is a funeral and then go and raid the empty houses, they have lifted a few Baht of gold around my place in the last few months!

    And times are getting harder!

    I would agree with you. If some twat called your wife that, then he/she deserves a kicking

    I suppose that making that sort of remark is the only way they can attempt to upset you; shows they are sadly lacking in imagination

    Kreng jai is the downfall of this country.

    Fortunately, Mrs sabang has a refreshing lack of it. Which is why we had our house built by builders from Khon Kaen, rather than local villagers who quoted more. Having been informed of the ongoing saga of my nearest expat neighbours house, well glad we did.

    But MM, you are the husband and I would think the source of money- so Kreng jai applies to you too. Why don't you Tell your Mrs to get rid of those thieving monkeys, and replace them?

    True, I can take the personal shit directed at me, no problem, I give as good as I get and sometimes ask for it I know! But it's a bit below the belt when they start on your family that have nothing really to do with this site (except the gratuitous laughs I get from their behaviour at times) - Anyway, shoot the messenger - not the ignorants!
