Forgive me, but all that I need and want from IOs is for them to be efficient in getting  me through and out the door,  know their own rules and apply them consistently and not take back handers. Exhibitions like this one leave me cold.  

Somebody wrote a book with the title you are thinking of.... 'Great Expectations!!!' 5555😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

what a blatant attempt at damage control by immigration after yesterdays, monthly shifting of the goal posts and bureaucracy expansion with relation to retirement visa's. Thaivisa is being used as a propaganda arm for the immigration department, daily news of immigration round ups, crime reporting, trying to shape falang perception. The immigration offices are not much better than meat processing centers. Anyone else here had someone smile at them at immigration recently, let alone sing you a song? <deleted> this is. Thaivisa has become a propaganda distribution and intelligence gathering organization for the Thai military

Yes, the lady smiled at me on Tuesday last. I'm still trying to get over the shock.😨

So now you will spend even more wasted time at the immigration office while the staff sing happy birthday to you on your visit closest to you actual birthday date. The subsequent immigration fees will now more than double as twice as many staff will be required to be employed, half to do the work and half to sing and present birthday cakes. No doubt they will alternate between the two tasks.

Maybe the trend will spread to Pattaya Immigration 🙂 though I must say they have always been pleasant enough so far !

yet one more thing to slow them down?

I must say that all those female immigration officers look rather 'vicious' 🙂

Not one of them would take their dentures out for a BJ

Dear God, I hope they never sing me the happy birthday song when I’m there. Call me crazy, but I’m just there for my extension. Do it politely and professionally and I will leave with a good impression. Simples.

Yes, I pretty much always get a smile from them. I always make small talk with them, either about the weather or the number/lack of people in the office and smile at them while doing so. I invariably get a smile back.
