Woman's airport meltdown: Compatriot says: That's a Thai for you!

I think you are confusing the tones. Asked a native Thai what the guy said and that's what she told me.

Here is the headline from Khao Sot newspaper

If you read the first word it says Aunty which is ป้า bpa or ba in Thai.

The first line says aunty causes a fuss//scene

The phrase manut bpa originated online when people started posting clips of middle-aged women using their age, sex or perceived social standing to gain advantage over others, i.e. jump the queue. they are seen as selfish.

Here are the characteristics of such a woman:

1. She is always right.

2. She jumps the queue claiming fragile health or seniority.

3. She likes free offers in shops and she'll pick up as many as she can to carry home, the whole lot if possible.

4. She'll do everything possible for her own benefit and will never let anyone take advantage of her. If so, she will create a fuss immediately.

There are a few other traits but you get the idea.

All the above are translated from the enclosed article.

What is “Hi-So”?

High society is the people of notable wealth that share stereotype that they are selfish and treat others poorly yet demand others treat them well.

 

Or something like that.

I am in total agreement. Air Asia state 7kg and 2 bags maximum ie 7kg for 2 bags but they continually let people on with 3, 4 5 etc.

No point in having rules and not sticking to them for everyone. 

Same as people on scooters, bikes etc. You must wear a helmet, my arse and the police just allow it to happen.

My wife also has the attitude to let her son drive the car in the village. He has no license at all and she doesn't seem to be able to take it on board that if her son drives and is in an accident her car is not insured !!

 

So you don't know that car / vehicle insurance is a total scam? 

 

Thai son has 2 cars and one bike, all have full insurance. Son's in laws never let up how he is being ripped off and throwing big money away. Same attitude re house and contents insurance and health insurance.

 

A couple of years back son didn't realize his brother-in-law heard him telling his wife to please transfer money to insurance company for renewal on one of the vehicle. Her brother (who she's frightened of) told her she was not to send the money and promptly asked for large handout.

 

Son's wife told my son 'car insurance not paid' as soon as his BIL had gone and she tried to tell my son 'it's a rip off'. Plus said she now knows where to buy fake insurance stickers.

 

Son now personally takes care of all insurance matters and tightly controls all money to ensure his BIL and others don't get handouts.

Air Asia, not allowing check in unless you pay is BS. I won't fly them again. 

 

They won't miss you and your $20 flight. Many Chinese will take your place.

A simple case of "Don't you know who I think I am." She just needs to calmly explain that she is a Thai of great importance and whatever she wants to do should be fine for everyone.  :tongue:

All bullology. 7 kg why? If you get on as a passanger within the limit on baggage but weighing 150 Kg there is no problem. If the airline make a weight that includes the passanger and their baggage then ok. Otherwise it is an annoyance to people wighing just 60Kg and seeing a passanger with the ssme baggage and weighing 3 times your weight. You people love strict rules. Join the army.

"Don't you know who I think I am." Thais do that on a regular basis, they tell you they should be called DOCTOR (and their name)  because they have an engineering degree, or dentist, or vet and so forth
