  1. Hello ubonjoe thank you for answering, I am in my seventh year as a retired, so I meant my second 90 days report this year ( and not an extension, as a not native English speaker even though doing my best sometimes...) I meant this month 22th I will go to immigration for my second 90 days report and as I said since my bank is still over 400 000฿ I will have plenty of time to transfer some money, for my account not going under this deadly 400.000 ฿ but some years before, it went down. Two years ago I bought a new car my account was maybe only 50.000฿ for a week or two, at the time no problem, and should it comes to zero for any reason I could always take some money at an ATM with my two credit cards from my country. But this year what would have happened? it's not so much financially that I'm touched, but psychologically I wonder why I decided to finish my days in a minefield, which had never scratched me before
  2. A question: February 22th I will go for my second extension this year, so six months, I looked My bank book it will be OK still over 400 000฿ But what would have happened if it had been under, like 350 000฿ for instance, in my case, it would have been possible. Some expats not speaking English do not read TV. I know that everywhere no one is supposed not to ignore the law, but what would happen if someone was not aware while being in good standing for last year but under 400 000 ฿ for a few time! Expelled unceremoniously?
  3. I copy/paste to show people that I did, in fact, read on Sanook it was an American the owner of the bag, no mention at all of what you and other said. They wrote the owner was an American at the time I did read it so please with your common sense... grrrr I have no Christal ball. Then probably a few hours later they learnt the owner was a Thai. So now give me a rest
  4. OK I will answer for the fourth time and the last one Here is a copy/paste of what was written on the link given: Sanook...If they wrote a different thing not my fault Mr. Somkiat, Managing Director One of the famous tour boat companies The owner of the ship said that the victim was a 21-year-old US citizen who, after the incident on the afternoon of February 12, had reported to Ao Nang and informed the tourist police. In order to keep track of such tourists In which the bag contains wallets, ID cards, ATM cards, mobile phone chargers, books, perfume and many other items Including cash available at 5,000 baht

  7. Could be yes, It would be funny if it was true. Thai or not I hope he will be caught.
  8. Sorry for not understanding your post but the owner of the bag is a twenty-one years old American man!
  9. The Brexit being the vote of the old generations, how one could disagree with it on Thai Visa without signing his death warrant https://www.statista.com/statistics/567922/distribution-of-eu-referendum-votes-by-age-and-gender-uk/
  10. I have not rent a bike for six years but of course not every company want to keep the passports, and telling all of the company will try to scam people... would be a lie
  11. but calling them smart would be a lie. A mistake for sure! ...A lie ... it's not nice to lie... So we are still OK: giving passports to rent a bike is not smart! Besides what do not know these naive is that it is probably only the bandits who require passports to be able to blackmail for a painting scratched after.
  12. Be warned if you ask for more sugar for your morning coffee I hope you'll not be answered "what kind of idiot put so much sugar in his coffee" No offence Sir, I know I'm going too far, I know, maybe he is no a bad manager, after all, maybe he was in a bad mood for another reason and vented, not very dexterously, on a subject that could legitimately be a problem for him from time to time. Myself, I may have been too fast in my first judgment of OP?
  13. I agree 100% with you and will add even though I have two Thai driving licence I always show my passport in hotels, first because as a foreigner it is what is logically asked by any hotel employee to a foreigner in most countries of the world. If anyone goes to a hotel, tourist or expat alike this person is supposed to have his passport when travelling in the country, not a copy. To answer to "but he's not a machine, he's a man". Again I 100% agreed with you, I will go farther, nobody's perfect all the time. But OP wrote: If you come to my hotel and demand to be checked in, I'll ask you "What sort of an idiot hands over their passport to a motorcycle hire company anyway? Which corresponds to openly calling idiot these people probably already a little lost. Sorry Sir no offence to you but only a rude person begins by addressing his customers like that. So yes I agree 100% any gentleman could find sometimes difficult not to be rude, But unless OP explanations were not exact, he did not found it difficult but started the conversation by calling those people idiots. Next time someone will ask me " What time is it, I will try to answer, what kind of idiot goes outside without his watch
  14. It's my case both my driving licence car and motorbike numbers do not correspond anymore with my passport number. I went to the driving licence office in Samui 24hours after receiving my new passport, expecting to change for new ones, they said NO not change.
  15. I do not see the necessity of being so rude to these people as you are, for a hotel manager it does not reflect too much a gentleman behaviour
  16. A few months ago I was stopped by a police check at about ten in the evening. On the main road, a few minutes before Lamai, coming from Bophut. I was on my motorcycle and there were several bikes on a lot with at least a dozen police officers. The policeman asked me, do you have any drugs with you and quoted some names of different drugs? I frowned and replied spontaneously with a big smile, do you think I look like someone who takes drugs, in addition at my age? Believe it or not, he laughed and said no, and waved me to show I could go. I did not believe it myself, since my answer was instinctive. Maybe he was not very professional...but it's a true story
  17. "The unit began giving her Bt2,000 from her husband’s salary." ...“As soon as the deductions began, he suddenly called and demanded I return the money”
  18. Should I believe every single words of many posters posting every single day everything is rotten to the core in this country, between the killer roads, the corrupt police, the women all thieves and all Thai men being immature and therefore dangerous if any contradiction arose with anyone, I would not only regret it but I would probably already be running away at full speed
  19. Bahrain Saudi Arabia same kind of judicial system clear like rock water like molasse.
