Falling out with fellow expats

Recommended Posts

Are you in need of some desperate attention or you just have too much time on your hands

 

I just enjoy picking on the authors of their own misfortunes :D

I think there is are differences between someone going to a place like Saudi as an expat and someone going to Cebu as an expat. I would imagine going to Saudi would be 99% for work, where as going to Cebu would be 90% for retirement/asawa. When I was in Cebu, I was very sick of western culture and wanted to immerse myself in a foreign land, not recreate the USA there. It took me years before I started getting over the things I hated about the west and then finally started being willing to chat with westerners.

To add one more to that last post:

 

Friends, would never sleep with your wife/gf behind your back

 

Best Friends, would do it and tell you about it and say: She was gonna feck someone, better your friend than some stranger.

I lived here 2-1/2 years with out a care or fear of my neighbors. I needed little to feel secure and had a happy life. But I had very few expat friends

 

Then the last 1-1/2 years I started befriending expats. More fecking trouble than they are worth. I am presently under house protection, a prime witness in a murder case, and have killers trying to stalk me. I have to have to have a 4 man armed police escort just to go into town, and have to have a firearm beside me probably for the next few years, and my family has to live with the stress. Almost all these manly men best buds suddenly developed pussies and disappeared. I love fair-weather friends. I have found most expats I have met here to be feckedup self-serving overly-dependent excessively-needy individuals.unworthy of being called a friend. I love the locals but care very little for all but a few expats that I have met here.

 

My wife who lived with me for 22 years in Texas, is a naturalized American citizen, only 5-1/2 years younger than me, and who I have been married for over 27 years has asked me to please do not make anymore expat friends. We are happy with the locals, and wish we had the life we had before expats. You dick-heads are far more trouble than you are worth.

 

Those that are unhappy with my statements can "bit me", but it is advisable you keep an arms length of me, and keep you worthless shit talk to yourselves. I just don't care... My family is better without most of you, and we are happier without most of you. I have better things to do with my time then be victimized by users, losers, abusers, pretenders, non-achievers, feckups, and social parasites. You just have to go through too many just to try to find a true friend. Too damn many, most are just more problems than you asses are actually worth.

James, let's review. Your life is being threatened by three Filipinos and a Filipina (because of their involvement in killing a foreigner). Several people (mostly foreigners I would guess) on this forum helped you out financially when you needed it to get that firearm you need to protect yourself from those who have threatened you. I'm not sure if any asked to ever be repaid, but I certainly didn't. I'm not sure how to take your last statement. BTW...I still consider you a friend, and I would help you again if you needed it.

I have met expat men I consider friends for life in Cebu. I have also met the biggest compulsive rotational fecking users, fugitives, psuedo businessmen & liars.

Yes, let's paint all ex-pats with a broad brush. they all suck big time. I hate everyone of them. I wish expats never existed. Maybe RP will throw all the scumbags out.

If I walk through a mall, supermarkert, most expats will avoid eye contact, a simple hello will be ignored.
I didn't come here to meet expats. If I wanted that I'd have stayed home. I have a few foreign friends but don't go looking for more. If I see you and don't know I will not say hi because you're a foreigner. To me that's a form of racism unless I went around saying hi to everyone I see and I don't have time for that. If you say hi to me I'll return in kind but don't expect me to burst into some big conversation like we're best buds just because we're both expats and even if from the same country.
i have very little in common with foreigners in the philippines
We have that in common.
"Trust no one until they have earned that Trust".
Especially here. And the biggest scammers here, the ones out to really hit your wallet, aren't pinoy.
It has been my observation that the Ex captains of Industry, the retired special forces and the former rockstars have V E R Y tall stories to tell.
I have no time for bullshitters. I had a kid working for me once and after a few months there one of our contractors leaned to me and said, "It must really suck to be 18 and have already done everything." People like that bore me because a liar, even one that is only boasting can't be trusted at all.
I said sure here is 50 peso i mail you the rest and walked off
You're p50 more generous than I am. Of course, I wouldn't have held his hand to the computer store either. Sorry buddy, I ain't going that way.
What is more intriguing about the "narcissism of small differences" is that people that have more in common with each other actually have more of a tendency to bicker and in-fight than those who have less in common.
Please remember to mention that the next time some moron asks what an older guy and younger girl could have in common. As if that has some useful value.

The thing is, in the Philippines, foreigners with different backgrounds get united, let's say one was a salesman before and the other one was a truck driver, well, doesn't surprise me they can't do business together.

Yeah, and each of them assuming the other is the one with the business sense.
I love you man... I could not have said it better.
So you're thinking he wasn't talking about you?

I/ve seen many expats that I don't want to admit to being from ths same country, much less being a friend. I tend to associate with retired U.S. Military

But John, I thought you like military retirees?

is it better to be a complete asshole or an incomplete asshole ?

Half assed?

I am sure this will be deleted, but I just wanted to attack this post on a few levels. The difficulty I am having is trying to actually decide which exact levels, for the the amount of fail all over this has reached truly epic proportions.
