If it is legit it could be good for you. Always nice to have a cop friend or two.

I'll admit I was glad when they left.

I bet you were, the old anal sphincter would have been quivering.

Looks like you handled the situation perfectly.

If anyone wants to do anything remotely seen as working then be careful. Learn the rules and more importantly the street smarts of what can happen.

In this case a possible sting to extort money even though most likely a friendly chat.

No need anyway. Robots taking over all jobs.

Are you American by the way?

Guy was just meaning well.

Always a good idea of getting on well with the local plod over here.

Maybe a 2 hour session once a week down the local cop shop teaching English is a way of you getting involved, they learn English, you learn a bit more Thai.

And make new friends....

Win win.

Don't be so paranoid.

 

But technically he will need a work permit which will cost him money.

Yes, if it was legit. However, a card or contact number and a call for an appointment would be a better way than--get in the car now.

Cops here are your 'friend' until you need help......

I would be very apprehensive seeing that you aren't acquainted(strangers) with them! I have Thai  friends who have asked if I would do the same! I declined

Solid. My exact thoughts on the matter too. 

 

Yes, corruption is rife in Thailand - it doesn't mean the cop is going to kidnap you off the street from right under the 20 cameras in each 7/11 store as part of some plot to hold you for ransom. He was probably just bored and wanted to learn some English.

Either way... he was probably drunk... nothing to worry about. 

Just snorted coffee out my nose slightly. 

 

You're right in the rest of your post too. Probably just overzealous, especially if in a smaller centre. I got a ticket in Hua Hin once and ended up at the station for two hours with a bunch of cops who just wanted to hear what life was like in New Zealand. Nothing dodgy about it at all, I even got invited for a game of golf and they fed me, because it happened to be lunchtime. I could have just paid my ticket and left, but it was kinda nice to see that Thai cops are people too...
