Not 'crazy person' then?

no, it's the Thai word for aunt-ป้า- the sound is neither a soft p nor a hard b, but in between.

This clip sees the return of one of my favourite Thai phrases- manut pba - translated loosely as a lady who demands privileges, i.e. expects to jump the queue, will do anything to be served first or have special treatment.

The angry woman complain to the staff that they are Thai like her (the incidence is at Nan airport) so why make such a fuss about a few kilos overweight? 

In response, the guy says the complainant mentions being Thai because Thais don't like to follow laws or regulations!

Not the same as the headline which suggests having a meltdown is a Thai characteristic.

That's a Thai for you would better fit the behaviour of the Thai staff in my view, i.e. patient in the face of an abusive customer.

 

 

Thanks for clarifying this distinction. 

 

So the old bat expects special privilege not for being hi-so but because she is Thai?

A wannabe "Hi-So" demanding the "peons" do as she says, and never mind the rules.  They don't apply to her. 

And flying AirAsia. Very haiiii-soooooow.

I reckon she thinks the staff are being too fussy and can't believe they won't bend the rules. 

She should have listened to Samuel Johnson- patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

Whats all this jibber-jabber about this being so Thai?

 

This kind of thing happens everyday in the US. In fact, there was a video just a few days ago from Florida of an American woman going bonkers and trying to jump over the ticket counter in FL, I think.

 

I was warned about TV being a place where old farang vent their anti-Thai opinions but I didn’t believe a bunch of expats who live here by their own choice could hold so much resentment towards the place.

 

Aw well, the best thing about Thailand is the freedom to do as you please and be who you are so whatever floats yer boat 😉

 

 

 

 

It doesn't really matter who you're bashing, the Thais, the Americans or the bunch of TVF expats..

.. As the saying goes : "a good bashing everyday keeps the doctor at bay ". :tongue:

My Thai wife takes loads of carry on luggage when she flies internally including about 5 kilos of curly pork which is very popular in BK but much cheaper in CM, I tell her she won't get away with it...but she always does!!

 

Beats me!

Seen this one many times before.

 

Seems to me many folks have the view that you can check-in / carry on almost anything onto a plane, pretty much same as onto a  tour bus.

 

A couple of years back my Thai nephew was about to fly BKK to Chiang Mai, his uncle sent him a smartphone photo of the largest size can of house paint (actually he wanted 3 cans) he wanted brought to CM, saying it was much cheaper if bought in BKK.

 

Nephew tried to explain 'I can't check-in things like that onto flight, and it's wouldn't be free'.

 

His uncle was convinced it was all OK, saying repeatedly 'you can put cans of paint under the tour bus, so why not onto an aircraft'.

If she shut her mouth, the weight would decrease by 10 kilos!
