"C'est moi! But I'm not a taxi driver" Frenchman tells Samui cops as Thais urged to rat on foreigners

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 ?

Guessing 2000 baht doesn’t cover sitting in the back of the Ute!! What’s French for road safety?

You all ought to live in the countryside, here they like it when you work. I help when the village has its 3 monthly clean up, I work drying rice at harvest time and also work in the fields helping the in-laws, it's almost expected. In Isaan the police and the immigration leave us foreigners in peace, never had any trouble, my sons school even asked me to be a full time English teacher which I turned down as that would be taking the p1ss, they were oblivious of the need for a work permit.

LOL.

 

Tell that to these guys: http://www.buriramtimes.com/bad-guys-out-nearly-500-foreigners-arrested-in-north-east-thailand-immigration-crime-sweep/

 

Used to feel the same way as you, Soalbundy, but haven't for years. Get on someone's bad side for any reason, people will report you without blinking an eye. All the brainwashing immigration has done about foreigners being a criminal element, people look at foreigners much more suspiciously than in the past. Almost makes me miss some of the dirty looks I used to get from little old ladies in supermarket aisles and parking lots back home.

Maybe somebody say you take job from Thai comedian.

Can't be! There was no "Boioioing" nor a rising whistle sound nor artificial hysteric laughter in the background.

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

In that case, I apologise unreservedly.

Nice witchhunt they started, that's always how it starts. 

 

I wouldn't want to be a foreigner of any kind living ob Samui. 

 

 

Hmm,...I used to stay several months a year on Samui and had lot's of friends there. when returning for a couple of weeks a few years ago I noticed most of my friends left the island and moved to other places.

Most of them where disgusted with how the island and it's inhabitants had evolved....

Cops should have kept an eye on this guy and videotaped him, if he was seen doing this on a regular basis then. Move in with the evidence. If as he says he was helping someone out. Then turn the page nothing there

Surely the police should also look at the Taxi prices on the Island which rip off every foreigner who goes there and innocently uses the government authorised taxi service. On my one occasion I went there, the USD50 journey was so short, I was shocked and angry as I thought the journey would last longer than 7 minutes for the price.  The authorities should be looking into taxi competition and fairer prices. Due to the ludicrous cost of airfares to the Island from Bangkok combined with the legalised theft from taxi drivers, I avoid Samui as there are far better value places to visit in Thailand.
