I replied it doesn’t matter how old one is as it’s only money that matters.
Also, all too often when a boy tells me he is not a money boy, I can't afford it. I have a feeling more than one farang reading this knows just what I mean.
Ain’t that the truth!
Actually the cost of an “off” is a minor inconvenience, when you take everything into account.
Two ways of looking at this:
1. You go to bars or Gogo’s looking to see what is available. In the process you may visit 3,4, or even more places. Whilst doing the rounds you can easily get through several expensive drinks, both for yourself and for them. Then add the final off fee. Without putting figures on it the final 1000 or 1500 for him is a minor additional expense.
2. You have a regular who you see quite often. This may involve off fees, meals, drinks, and maybe late entertainment such as Karaoke with associated drinks etc. Eventually you pay the 1000/1500 for him. A small part of the total costs of that night out on the town. Gaybutton's non money boy!
Any farang coming on holiday and paying air fares, taxis, hotels, eating out etc shouldn’t really begrudge the odd 1000/1500 here and there! A drop in the ocean.
I have always said to myself the boys tip is the cheapest part of any trip to Thailand.
Expats may find it different!
