Re: Rude and disrespectful Thais (Mailbag, Friday, 12 October 2012) – “There isn’t a single Thai who works or lives here who hasn’t had a bad experience with a farang.” Complete nonsense and perpetuating this myth serves no purpose. But what if it was true? Would the Thais be able to learn from the experience? Would they be able to gather the data and reach useful conclusions? I propose that your 32 years have taught you nothing. Oh, and by the way; I am a farang and I am special. Another concept beyond anyone’s ability to comprehend. There are many other countries where the natives are more ignorant and more violent and more rude than the Thais, but once you reach a certain baseline it does not matter.
