    Minor Scam

    I was at a bar called 'Papagayo,' in Pattaya, last night. I was sitting with a bargirl, we were on stools next to the bar. I ordered a drink for me and her, and the bartender who took the order said,'One drink for me too?' I said 'no,' and I shook my head. Then I went to the toilet, and when I came back I noticed that the bartender had a shot of tequila. I didn't care, because I'd told him I wasn't buying him a drink. But, when the updated bill arrived in my checkbin, his drink had been added to my bill. I told him I had refused his request for me to buy him a drink, and he said,"yes, you did [agree to buy me a drink]." So, I went to the cashier and told her what happened, and she said "the bargirl sitting with you told him it was OK for him to have a drink. Wait until her dance shift is over, and we can sort this out." 1. I don't believe there's any way the cashier could know what had been said between the bargirl sitting with me and the bartender. 2. There's no reason I should have to wait until the bargirl finishes her dance shift. She can get offstage right now and sort this out. 3. I got no sense, or feeling, at all that honesty mattered to them. The bartender lied right in my face, and the cashier did the same thing. This scam is not limited to Papagayo. FYI. Please don't reply to this post. I'm not going to check it for replies myself, because most of what gets posted these days on Thai360 is neither informative nor useful.
  2. Can't tell if any answers posted so far are informed, or just the typical idiocy.
  3. As you know if you've been there, between the front and back stages, there's that circular ceramic thing with girls, water & soapsuds inside. And chains hanging from the ceiling with handgrips. What's it called? Thanks
  4. I got my visa extended, no problem there. I needed: 2 photocopies from my passport- One of the page that has all the info- issuing date, expiry date, and so on, AND the page that has my date of entry to Thailand stamp on it. 1 visa photo 1,900 Baht And I had to fill out a form- TM7 I believe it was. They had plenty of those at the immigration office. I got there at 2 pm (they're open from 8:30~ 4:30) and it only took about 15 minutes to complete. They're on Jomtien Beach Road, up Soi 5 http://allpattaya.com/directory/public-services/business/2726/Pattaya-Immigration-Office
  5. My 60 day tourist visa expires at the end of August, so I'm going to apply for a 30 day extension. I have not done this before. From what I've seen on the 'Net, I'll need a visa extension form, which I think I can download, 1 visa photo, and a photocopy of my passport. I'm in Pattaya, so I'll need to go to the Immigration office at Jomtien, Soi 5. Does it matter when I go to apply for an extension? I figure I'd rather do it sooner than later, in case my application is denied. Are visa extension applications routinely approved? What's the deal with visa overstays? I could probably use a couple of extra days over the 30 I'd get if my extension is approved, but could visa overstaying be grounds for denying entry to Thailand in the future? Thanks!
  6. yfs, yours seems to be the only intelligent response to my beer bar girls prices post. I don't know why Thai 360 or Nanaplaza has gone down the tubes the way it has. I guess there's too many people out there who don't have a life and therefore have nothing better to do than post idiotic posts. It's a pity! If there's a website out there you could recommend to me, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, I will do a web search, as you suggested. Thanks!

    Hand Job Bar?

    Is there such a thing as a hand job bar in Pattaya? Thanks.
  8. Thanks, guys. Nice to know there's no big hassle involved, for you at least. I'm limited to the banks specified in my post... thanks again
  9. I'm in Pattaya now. I'm going to transfer some money from my bank in my country to a bank in Australia, while I'm here in Pattaya. In order for the Australian bank to open an account for me, they need me to get some documents certified at a Thai bank- Siam City Bank, Bangkok Bank, or Siam Commercial Bank. The person at the Thai bank has to have a bit of rank, and been working there for more than two years. I will be able to step him or her through it, but s/he will have to have adequate English. I've never done this kind of thing before. So, I've posted this thinking that expats or whoever has experience dealing with Thai banks may have some advice for me. Thanks!
  10. OK, I stand corrected. 'Ho' it is, then. Sure it's short for 'whore,' but to me it lacks the offensiveness that 'whore' conveys. For me, it's just casual. http://www.rapdict.org/Ho e.g. Alternative to "bitch" as in, one's girlfriend. "She's ma ho'"
  11. Expat!! You surprise me! To tell you the truth, I don't see anything 'exciting' about calling women 'hoes.' I certainly never use that word when I'm with them! Maybe it's because 'hump' and 'hoe' both start with 'H.' I tried to talk a buddy in my country into coming to LOS. I said,"Let's go over to Bangkok and hump some hoes," which made him chuckle. I usually refer to 'fucking' as 'humping.' As far as I know, 'hoe' is the current lingo. It doesn't have any special connotation that I'm aware of. I consider 'whore' to have an offensive connotation, and 'prostitute' and 'hooker' take longer to type than 'hoe,'... that's all. But again, I never use any of those words, 'hoe', hooker, prostitute, whore, when I'm with the girls. On a side note, what pisses me off is seeing the girls get groped in the bars. One look at her face, and you know she doesn't like it. So why do it? I guess it's a power trip, the guy figures she has to take it. All I can say is 'Fuck that!"
  12. I've no particular reason for asking how many hoes there are in Pattaya, except that some years back, I recall something about there being 20,000 girls working there. I don't know how well informed that estimate was, either. It was also stated that there were 4,000 to 5,000 punters. Anybody got a clue about how many girls?
  13. I called Australia from Pattaya on my mobile phone and went through 500 baht in 23 minutes... just wondering if there's a numeric prefix I could use that would make calls cheaper? Thank you!
