    They sound like a bunching of squawking crows to me.

    Possibly the worst I have heard.

    But all of those guys can't hold a candle in their eyes to what they perceive as the best in the world. Thai people.

    No comments on the uppercut video? I have always said never hit a woman, but I had no sympathy for that woman getting a hard uppercut from that bus driver after she was loud, obnoxious, rude, then spit on the driver. Unfortunately, there are quite a few black women just like that one in the USA. I avoid them like the plague.

    Thailand has a special ear dewaxing service in hair salons. I strongly advise all not to take it. I could not hear my very soft work colleague any better than before after ear cleaning service. However those speaking nearby loudly e. G. Holding a by phone meeting nearby my desk, became like thunder claps. I was way better off having my hearing dampened by ear wax. Dampening helps in gogo bars too. Dampens mainly loud stuff and little effect on quiet sound. Earplugs have a very useful function.

    I do value peace and quiet, not just in public libraries. Discos not fun for me. Too loud and many Thai discos have very poor quality sound and a very irritating DJ as well. Can't stand listening to 30 seconds of a good song, and them find it being blended into the next one. We were lucky to get some good song in the first place. Surely we could have nearly all of it, barring long introductions.

    Once I bought ticket at Morchit bus station at Chinese new year in a pushing and shoving crowd. Fortunately I am tall enough to be still getting air when the shorties could be suffocated. After getting ticket, I barged my way out of the throng, and found that a puny Thai guy was being dragged along with me (without him having got to ticket counter yet), his arm was caught tangled in my backpack straps (no clue why his arm was there), so he got pulled long with me. A funny incident for me, but not for him. One would not think was possible but true. He probably weighed 55 Kg at most and me close to 90, so he could not stop my progress out of the crowd, and I did not notice the extra drag at first. Thought it was just the crush.

    In stores we always find Thais trying to get served before their place in the queue and the serving staff accept it easily. Very normal. Even in Germany I notice staff prefer to serve the locals first, out of turn, at some places. So who gets there first wins philosophy does not always apply. Don't see thoroughly polite in turn systems much. At least at the Red Cross blood testing, and Immigration, we get queue numbers assigned. Think of the chaos without that.

    With advancing age, we are less and less able to tolerate all the shit going on, without getting irritated. Remote quiet life maybe best.

    I remember when this happened.

    I don't believe he was arrested and didn't get fired LOL.

    There are quite a number of cultures that will go in front of you and cut off your path. I noticed it in Germany a lot, and of course the Chinese in Hong Kong etc. Are worst in world, and Thais push in too (not liking to queue in an orderly manner) but a less. The worst thing is to be on a boat or bus with Chinese tour groups and have them pushing and shoving the whole time when could be quietly queuing, and I just turn around and push back the other way. They then have a shocked look on their faces, like they don't understand. Even being at a self serve food setup, e. G. Hotel Breakfast with Chinese is a trial. Their culture is just totally incompatible.

    Thais consider Chinese (from China not American Chinese) and Viets to be very ill mannered. Manners matters more in Thailand for sure. Thais abhor the hoiking and spitting and nose blowing accepted in other cultures. However nose picking in public is accepted.

    In the sports pub, in general conversations, the Americans are louder than the Aussies in my perception, but the Aussies go bananas (loud) when cheering their sports team, which can be like a lightning strike when they yell. The English have easily the most foul language (that I can understand) from mid to lower classes with the "c*nt" word coming out a lot, so I wish they could keep their foul language to a much lower volume. It's embarrassing for other farangs. In general I find americans to be polite but loud. Being on a long train journey with a loud American woman talking non stop and in southern drawl was quite an annoyance for those wanting to nap.

    Out in an Isaan province, all the locals speak in a very loud excited manner for general conversation, than I am not used to, and quite unlike Bangkok. Any quieter and you know it must be something secretive or furtive. In old days I did experience very loud southern Thais when drinking and partying too, so not just Issan people.

    Working in Italy, I find them very loud and over excited too. Germans quiet. Scandinavians the best in the world in all aspects of manners I think.

    One work colleague was Australian, and spoke so softly in a noisy environment, I could rarely hear him. Another Brit always spoke very fast with low mouth movement (like a ventriloquist) similar to Indians but with lower pitch and English accent. Probably more like Irish who speak with a closed mouth a lot. He was very hard to understand at times, and non native English speakers had little hope. Americans are easier to understand, if they stay away from slang, Ghetto vocab, and not deep south, as tend to speak slower and higher volume levels.

    I think we all get irritated by behaviour well outside what we are used to in our own cultures. I like my personal space, which groups of Indians seem to stuff up in Billboard bar. They party too much in your face or nearly on your lap. Don't notice any other ethnic group annoying me as much. I can't be near groups that stink (whatever the origin or ethnic group), so could not queue at the money exchange with Arabs and could not be in a lift with them. So that rules out Soi 3 and Soi 5 Hotels quickly, any of the low odd Sois through to Soi 9 most likely.

    I don't have a problem with those that are exceptions to the stereo type. I have Chinese, Japanese, English and Indian buddies, no problem. These would all be somewhat non typical for the group.

    It is for insects. So those from one country do not fuck up shit in another country. Maybe strong is relative. The only kind that I have smelled has a lemon scent and I actually like it. It is supposed to be sprayed toward the floor, not overhead or into vents.

    That spray is disgusting, irritating, but the active ingredient is usually permthrin which is essentially non-toxic. http://www.travelstart.co.za/blog/ai...abin-spraying/ Don't know about the toxicity of the propellants etc in the spray can.

    For preventative measures to avoid getting sick from a fellow passenger, probably best is a well-fitted N99-rated face mask. I like this one, comfortable, with ventilation valves so the insides doesn't get soggy and has a type of carbon fiber that specifically helps catch and kill bacteria and viruses https://cambridgemask.com/.

    And wash your hands often with soap and water before, during, and after the flight. Especially after passing though immigration with those fingerprint readers that so many countries now use.

    I am not an infectious disease specialist, is anyone aware of any preventive measures that can prevent this? I was very ill, if not for the fact I was in manila.

    And the admonition from mr tooms about medical "doctors" with crucifix wounds on their hands etc etc LOL I would have sought medical tx!

    Post-script Thai hookers seems safe enough for me.

    Its the ones in Mexico that get me really really ill.

    Almost every visit!

    You want to avoid having direct contact with the A/C on Airplane. It recycles the air on board. Your best beat would be to wear mask with a decent filter, wash your hands, and avoid touching the eyes throughout the flight.

One time in business class on Qatar airways, I had the aisle and some Arabic guy stood next to me the entire flight talking to another Arabic guy seated next to me at the window (talking over me the entire time). I nicely asked the guy next to the window to change seats with me so he and his friend could talk, and he refused saying he liked the window seat.

    Just recently, I flew Lion air to Bali. Some Arabic guys (obviously not upper class or very well educated from the way they acted) were on the flight. As we were getting on the flight, they actually pushed past people to get to their seats. They would not wait in the cue, they literally forced themselves past people to get to their seats. So odd. Then when the plane landed, they did the same thing. They got up and forced their way past everyone in the aisle to get off the plane.

    I have no problem pushing back. Have had some of 'them try to cut in front of me on the mrt and bts platforms. I tell them there is a que and if they don't respond, I'll grab them. I've gotten in their grill in airports before as well.

    If you decide to start your own family revisit this situation and tell me you would allow your child to sit next to a total stranger on an overnight flight with the airline telling you to suck it up.
    I was flying with Singapore Airlines from Singapore to London one time with my wife and 5 year old daughter. They wanted to sit us all separately so I spat the dummy. Ended up with my wife and daugther together and me in the row behind. We were not happy.

    Since garbage has preassigned location bins in their aircraft, it is entirely reasonable to infer that United treats Economy Class passengers worse than garbage.

    The Arabs do not discriminate. They will do (what you described) regardless of who is sitting in that Aisle seat: white, black, oriental, eskimo.
    This how they behave. It is cultural.

    However, in Business Class, there is no reason to put up with this.
    I would have called the Cabin Staff and asked them to relocate me or the guy sitting in the window seat.

    If it is a super rich Arab that is affected, the less-than-super rich Arab will be as meek as a mouse. Now, that is cultural!

It might be profitable and then it could catch on.
    Natty,

    You got your wish. The new offering is here and it is catching on fast.

    It is called "Premium Economy". More leg room, a better seat with your own two armrests and drinks served in real glassware.

    Lufthansa launched Premium Economy in January 2015. According to its CEO, it has been a super hit. On Lufthansa, these seats sell out fast.
    Cathay Airlines launched PE recently. United is a laggard, but they too sense the business potential and plan to launch in the near future.

    On a 8+ hour flight, if you cannot fly Business Class, then Premium Economy is the way to go.
    Your two suitcases will fly free. And yes, you can pick your seats in advance without paying $30 or $35 per seat assignment.

    ~BKKguru
