    Attacked, a cautionary tale

    As I sit here writing this with a thick lip and black eye, this content is sent as a warning to other expats. Please be aware of a bar opposite electric blue in patpong soi 2.

    I have been going there since itís inception, I know the manager well and as of last night, after a couple of fracas, I now know the French owners, father and son (who initially wanted to hurt me, but strangely were nice later!).
    Last night whilst on my own and during only a 10 minute stay in Ba Da Bing, I bought a drink for me and one for a pretty girl, however as I tried to pay my bill, it had suddenly jumped by 100%. Unfortunately for me, I desputed this tariff and after a bit of discussion I was surrounded by the usual Thai men gang of COWARDS, and I got attacked, suffering a few blows and a ripped shirt.

    Fortunately, I have lived here a long time and know a few people in Patpong, bar owners etc and so on my return 10 minutes later, pool cue in hand and with a few numbers, to even things out, things were a tad different, my attackers had scarpered, surprise, surprise. Please do not get me wrong, usually I do not condone violence. Iím an ageing expat and I can normally look after myself or others when required (but not against 6 or 7 pack animals) but these Thai cowards really get my goat. I will be returning frequently to the area, looking out for these particular individuals, one on one, and hopefully, my wrath will be spent. Of course, I should let it go but this particular cowardly mentality of Thai men, really should have repercussions.

    Thanks to the people that helped me out last night, including buying me a new shirt.

    This is just a cautionary tale, to avoid BDB.

    What happened with them? Why did they want to hurt you?

    This isn't ThaiVisa dude. You can name the bar and go into more detail.

    They joined the pack that surrounded me initially and the father was particularly aggressive as one can be, when you have 7 or 8 back up.

    Later on, I again returned, and they bought me a drink, all very civilised and amiable, however I had already being assaulted and I wonder if they would have been so accommodating, if I hadnít previously returned with support earlier.

    O.K.

    Name of bar = Ba Da Bing.
    Overcharged bill = How much? (and what is it normally?)
    Tried to pay the bill = Why would they attack if you tried to pay?
    Got a free drink off the owner = Why after getting attacked, going back with a pool cue and heavies to even things up you accept a drink from your attackers?

    Believe what you are saying, but could you please fill these gaps in the story?
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    Of course it's serious when an expat gets assaulted in a bar in Patpong.

    Sometimes you just have to accept that they just want your money. Last year or so, some expat in Angeles ended up outside one of the big GoGos getting a leathering from a pack of flips (same scenario as Thailand).

    His crime? He'd gone in the bar with his g/f, ordered two drinks, and they'd charged hers as what is known as a DLD (Double Lady Drink), even though she didn't actually work there.

    His refusal to pay cost him a visit to the hospital and a ruined holiday.

    The fuckers will do anything to screw the foreigner.

    Name and shame the bar so we can all avoid it.

    Fair points

    Because I was disagreeing with the amount. They charged me for two drinks each, when we only had one. I do go there often and I used to spend a fair bit of money. This time I was only there for 10 minutes and me disputing a charge, should not have constituted an attack.

    I was on my way home then, walking past the bar, still feeling really aggrieved and they were outside. Agreed, perhaps not the wisest move considering the events a couple of hours before, but I had my superman pants on, fueled by a few vodkas.

    I wanted to íhave a chatí with the Thais that hit me but they had gone, but I will, eventually.

    cheers

    it will have repercussions, and eventually they will be on you, guaranteed.

    best to swallow your pride and move on.

    You say you are an expat who has been here a while, but come up with that?

    Let it lie, mate. Let it lie.

    No point stirring the pot when your dealing with animals mate and next time you may get seriously injured.

    Hit them where it hurts and that is within their pocket.

    Don't spend your money there and do everything possible (including naming the bar here) to hurt their business.

    Of course that is only if you were unfairly attacked and didn't deserve it and only you know the truth.

    Same happened to me. Patpong, in a bar, watching MOTO GP. The thing is I didn't get into a row, just got ripped for 4000 baht. The bin went missing and this little slut hands me a piece off paper with the price for 4 bottles of Chang and three ladie drinks. I knew it was a scam and as I looked round there was three thai guys all covered in tattoo's and just staring at me.

    I laughed, threw the money on the floor and then spat on it.

    I thought, have it you pricks and went back to my hotel. It's things like this that make people not want to go back there.

    Correct I do, and it was unjust, that is why this is my first post here, as a ícautionary taleí.

    I have been here 9 years and you chaps are correct, I should let it go, but blimey sometimes it is bloody difficult.

    Who next.

    Choosing between - a beating, torn shirt, bruised ego - and paying "150?" baht is indeed a difficult choice makes perfect sense to me that the OP wants to go back for more

    Get someone to shoot them for you. 6 dead Thai pricks are about the same as 6 dead soi dogs.

    when you dispute a bill in Thailand it should be done politely and with respect

    if you do it aggressively as westerners often do, then the whole scenario moves into violence

    Locate a Burmese labourer, grease his (or her) palm with silver and tell him to off every fucker in the pub..should set you back a fiver or so, but money spent, what what..

    If not..leave it, to be honest..you've been here a while so you should know these peope fight like poofs and will only get stuck in when they're surrounded by 50 per cent of their province of origin to back their skinny faggot arses up.

    Lesson learnt..say 'ta ta' to that fucking bar..

    Simple solution when you go to notorious rip-off places like Patpong go-go bars is to pay as you go .

    Oldest trick in the book, in any RLD in the world.

    Same happened a mate in Soho London, in the civilized world.

    Agree.

    Seems like a typical situation of foreigners trying to fleece other foreigners. As I read it the owner and bosses (of the Thai guys? certainly the staff giving you the bill) were French and were as you said 'particulary aggressive' as farang cowards often are when they have a mob of natives supporting them.

    I'm just shocked that when you went back for vengeance and confronted the now two now mobless and vunerable farangs that attacked you that they managed to buy your aggression off with a drink, whilst no doubt you was telling him how you would get those 'cowardly Thais' when you see them next.

    I assume your mob was Thai too?
