Re: Leaving a bar

I don't think belittling the OP is the right thing to do. What's done is done. The least we can do, especially from those of us that have been here long enough to know the ropes, is give him our best advice and wish him well. Thankyou for that, I expected, of course, the usual 'what a prat, I know ...

Re: "saying No" !! to Thais.....

I would question her authenticity, and get a Thai friend or wife to grill her for a few minutes and see what transpires. There are far too many scams here where people latch on to a cause and milk it to stuff their own pockets. Pete :cheers: I watch if the person also approaches local Thais and see...

Re: Leaving a bar

I will ignore those who feel a sarcastic remark is an appropriate response to a genuine question
