Love these guys for putting the dork in his place

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Those dudes are setting up themselves up for an easy compensation claim being made against them. The 'village idiot', 'crazy'. The courts here will lap it up. If I was them I'd remove it from Youtube if you are still living in Taiwan. Both sides were out of order in my opinion.

Sure you can hate it, I can hate it but doesn't change the fact that this is what is going to happen.

Why does everyone say that that is a pony tail? I know ponytails and that is not one. Ponytails are not that bad. The roadkill on his head is...

Pity the foreigner didn't manage to put up a reasonable argument with the Taiwanese guy. As it is, the score is definitely Taiwanese Guy 1, foreigners 0. Or less, even, if they get docked points for f^ckwittery and profanity.

Some get paid for it, some get punched out for it. I rarely agree with Sandman, but he's spot on with this one (and certainly wasn't asking for anyone's teeth to get smashed in -- merely pointing out that anyone who had the least experience in Taiwan would realize that would be a possible outcome if you make the wrong person lose face like this.)

Believe me. I am not usually for a violent confrontation.
However, the ass with the ponytail needed a nice flathand, to knock some arrogance outta him, and some sense into him.. He would have run off faster than an Australian sheep at the sound of zipper being unfastened.

Sooner or later he is going to mouth off to the wrong person and end up in the ICU, or worse.

Where I come from he probably would have ended up in the emergency room if he was lucky.
Lucky for him Taiwanese tend to avoid confrontation.

Getting angry and behaving the way you do is one thing. Afterwards you might think, why did I have to do this.
For example; yesterday I figured out that the fruit store I frequently buy our fruit overcharged me and not by accident, so I put up a scene.
I am sure seeing this on video, I'd never get the idea uploading this.

I mean while doing what he did, he maybe wasn't aware of the ugliness he was in, but after reviewing his video, he should have had second thoughts.

0.39 the foreigner is checking out his bottom.

I think there are many things he is not aware of.

Yup actualy theres no point in pointing out such a minor transgression (like driving up a sidewalk) when theres tons of riches to be had on the wan, in that vein. Comme ca:



but then people in HongKong are pretty kongkong drivers too. Look at this guy ? Driving way too fast and rear ended someone else. Always your fault if you rear end someone.

Savage - what a nice performance

The foreigners were right to have a laugh at the other guy telling them ths they couldn't film their transgression. They were right to tell him wasn't any of his business, he was being typically concerned with face and nothing else. Then the mockery went a bit too far, although I have certainly sworn a lot worse than that when losing my temper.
But posting it on YouTube with the comments included, ouch, might be an own goal.
