Thai business owners who think they own the public road

I think the OP and some other posters actively seek out angry shop owners.

 

Carrying bolt cutters and removing chains? I call BS that never happened probably

a rage fuelled fantasy after being shooed off by an upstart Thai.

 

The only time I have had an issue parking outside back shop a guy came out and ushered me forward 

6 feet and we both carried on with our day.

And many Thai's have guns which would trump bolt cutters anytime. That said I tend to agree with your assessment, likely a fantasy post from the op.

I would never put a photo of myself as an avatar. This world contains people who can get offended at slight matters and knowing what you look like means it may be possible to find you. 

 

 

The guy in the avatar just looks like most farangs (the face I mean, unless there's the absence of a fat belly and tattoos).

How many guys could pick out that avatar photo in Bangkok or Pattaya?

A lady using boltcutters to cut a chain?

They own the sidewalks unless "the law" removes them temporarily. then they return. If a "member of the public" push any of their "fake Junk or poisoned food stand' to get by, then you could be subject to verbal or physical abuse.You'll never change attitude here in a million years

OP is not talking about sidewalks. It's about a public road which he pays tax for to use.
