don't you love  JOBS FOR THAIS,  women for THAIS, corruption for THAIS

 

maybe if there was GRAB or UBER, you would pay FAIR prices instead the extortion those pesky taxi drivers dare & can ask as there is NO COMPETITION

 

what about GUIDES that does speak thaiglish you don't understand and again, ask whatever they want

The whole world has seen what happened to the tourists in the phuket tuktuk.....they got beaten up by a large gang of tuktuk and taxidrivers.....

But he said that he was just taking friends to the ferry at Nathon.

This could be the truth, but I think he messed things up:

The alleged proof comes in the form of a short video showing a Westerner returning change to a couple of foreign tourists after a trip in a pick-up

I wonder who the incompetent one is is this case - Manager Online or the police? The mobile number has one digit missing.

That might reduce the number of Thai snitches!

It is a landline. 077 is the code for Surat Thani

You mean the final farewell dear friend ,that’ll be 400 thanks!

555, I can hear the conversation

 

I'll give you the number of a ripoff Thai taxi service on the Island - they will charge you 2000baht to go to the ferry or I will do it as a favor to my customers for 400baht

 

So who is really at fault ?

It seems like mowing your own lawn could come under depriving a Thai of a job.

 

This has all become rather silly!!

 

I suppose Thai society is such that Hi-so people always have servants etc to do stuff that they don't want to do, this is probably also like a status symbol. I doubt that are many Thai multi-millionaires that do their own gardening, where that wouldn't be seen as very unusual, in the UK anyway. I think it's partly a cultural thing

It is, that has been used to get rid of foreigners here before. 

 

There's actually a story from someone here on thaivisa where police was checking in on him for doing work on his own house.

Yes, I know. I have an old American friend who was worried that pruning his fruit trees (something that he enjoys and finds therapeutic), could be construed in the same way!!

Worse happens in Europe, I was staying at a hotel in La Gomera, a German staying there had a car and used to take us to the beach in the morning, 3 days later his car was trashed by taxi drivers, the police did nothing.
