Need explanation how Thai law is working if you broke something in store (not intentionally)

In H&M store one of the kids push the plastic shop dummy while running and playing. ....

H&M shop staff charged them for 25000thb.

Nowhere near enough. They should pay at least 50,000B just for having unruly kids, plus whatever the mannequin is worth on top.

 

Of course they should, 'cos kids should be seen and not heard, right ?

 

... so what happens when while shopping for his knitted underpants a 'grumpy old man' unsteady on his gammy hip accidentally brushes against the Mannequin and knocks it over???....

They should have bought a tube of Super Glue and fixed it,

that's most likely what the store will do,they made a profit

that day.

Absolutely. Badly behaved children should not be allowed in public places.

He should pay for it, of course.

But should he pay 50k on top for being grumpy and old? 🙂

Beat me to it.

 

They paid for it, it's theirs now.

 

Ask H&M when it will be delivered to your friends house in whatever country. They were even daft enough to give them a signed receipt without stipulating who's cost the delivery is down to.

 

Game, set and match to your friends. They will have their money back very quickly.

Only if he is annoying others. I think there are differences between real accidents and entirely avoidable carelessness, but regardless of that everyone should be responsible for their actions and those of whoever or whatever they are in charge of.

Why should delivery be included or even offered? Presumably the people who broke it and paid for it could have taken it away with them if they wanted to. If they wanted delivery also they should have said so at the time.

Agreed, and part of that responsibility is with the store to ensure something could not be knocked over by a child (or anyone else).

What if that mannequin were to fall onto another child, say a baby in a push chair. Is the store not responsible for ensuring its displays are secure?

 

I don't think the family are solely to blame here. The store is complicit in not adequately securing its displays.

And what would happen if I wandered into a shop that sells imported Venetian glassware and knocked a load over? Should that glassware be nailed down or glued down too? I dont think so.


If the mannequin was arranged in such a bad way that it could fall over on its own then the store would be responsible. But if you have to run at it full tilt to knock it over then I think that it becomes the runner's fault.
Most people I know have enough wit to realise that it's probably best not to run around in shops. Small children don't know that which is why they should be left at home or in the car or otherwise restrained. Common sense really. The same applies to dogs: on a leash when in public and fitted with a muzzle if likely to bite. And if they crap on the floor the dog owner should clean it up. Just a matter of simple responsibility.

All expensive things must be insured, and yes, in some countries it is shop responsibility to avoid situations like this. What law saying about it in your home country?

That you are responsible for what your kids do, don't let them run around while shopping. Let them do that in your own house, or are you afraid they brake anything then?

In the US, it wouldn't even had been an issue. Employee would have set it back up and that would be the end of it. On the other hand..no pun intended...depending on how wild the kids were running around, if the parents can't/won't control them, then they deserve to be charged for a reasonable cost amount to fix.

Sign in most USA antique or curio shops "you break it, you pay for it".  As far as any law about properly fastening things down... well, good luck with that and a lawyer and a court case.
