Personally I just pity people walking the streets shirtless.
My personal dislike is people who walk into a restaurant shirtless or especially in swimwear.
It just shows lack of respect for other customers and the staff.

If it's troublesome for some shops, the old standby: "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service" signs are easy to make. Pete :cheers:

It is illegal to leave home without underwear!!
Really? I broke that law nearly daily during my 10 years there! :oops:
My brain is like an Internet browser; 12 tabs are open and 5 of them are not responding, there's a GIF playing in an endless loop,... and where is that annoying music coming from?

Agreed. These people clearly lack etiquette.

Lack of respect, lack of dignity and selfish in nature.
What you do at home and on your property is your business.
There is 1 farang who wanders into the market on the way to Pranburi on a regular basis shirtless and wearing for want of a better word shorts. Gone native?
A damned embarrassment when even the poor Thais at least clothe up apart from the kids that is.

Well guys, you may be offended by Farangs without shirts etc, and some of you might break the odd law by going commando, but what we saw on our way to Makro this morning beats it all.

We were stopped at the Tessebahn lights, waiting to turn left onto Petchkasem. A Thai guy just stopped walking, dropped his trousers (he was commando as well I believe) and had a dump in front of everybody. Now, if Thais are offended by a bit of hairy chest, I was certainly offended by that.

I have the video on my dash cam. I don't feel the need to download to prove what I'm saying, but if any of you really believe that Thais, are offended by a bare chest, I can provide the evidence - however, there may be a few expletives from both my wife and I.

Sorry if this offends anybody - please don't look if upset by a bit of flesh. I needed to save it, because family weren't believing it.

I reckon the guy has a screw loose, mentally deranged. They are about and I have witnessed this before although not outside the Tessabahn!

Now whatever happened to "When in Rome, do as the Romans do"? :shock:

P.S. Of course, this does e.g. NOT mean that we should abuse women or
beat our wives when we stay in a muslim country! :laugh:

Some time ago I think I read on this forum about a farang girl sunbathing topless on the beach. There was a policeman nearby watching her and she spotted the policeman. When she got dressed and walk away from the beach the policeman stopped her and gave her a fine for being topless on the beach. She said you saw me, why didn't tell me before? And he replied " sorry miss, I could not approach you when you were naked. "
:roll:
