Bar fines on way up

Dear Hillary,

Did you know that some bars are charging B. 1,000 as bar fine for the honor of taking Miss Wunnite Satand out of the bar? Killing the goose that lays the golden egg I reckon. The number of tourists is already down and this will knock them further down. How can you find out first? Don’t you think they should have the prices on a board? After all, they do it with beer prices.

Dear Gerd,

I’m not a great frequenter of girly bars, Petal, but I have seen notices on the walls. Perhaps you are too dazzled by the young ladies? If there isn’t anything posted on the wall, then do what every red-blooded man would do – ask the girls, or the mamas and you can make up your mind nice and early.

    Just ask when you go into the bar! Before you get friendly with any ladies, if it is 1000THB walk away they are just ripping you off.

      /1000 bht..and i thought the 500 bht barfines on soi lk were a total ripoff . what is inevitable is the slowing down of traffic into these establishments .and more alternatives such as gazing out over the pristine waters of pattaya on a moonlit nite .sipping on a coke or counting the rats scooting around .basic economics will dictate the number of lovestruck cruisers willing to fork out fines like that ,and its the girls themselves that will be affected,,after all,they only get a small percentage ..i wouldnt know about this really.someone told me .cheers

    The places that ask the high numbers have high overheads; they are trying to recover the girls daily rate.
