"But I find" so you must submit yourself to the humiliation so you can live in the place you call a dump

Who says I subject myself to humiliation and inconveniences to live and spend time in a foreign land? I will never do that. I will rather drown myself in my bath tub than subjecting myself to humiliation to live in a foreign land. If I cant have it by bribing, I leave. It is that simple.

I don't know the custom of dropping your bags and/or pulling a towel on a chair comes from, but I'm from the US. If you leave you have left and have lost your place. Bring an umbrella or someone to stand in your place. In fact, dropping your bag to save your place, so you can go have breakfast, is rude in my opinion. I don't see Thais or other Asians doing this. If you are going there to circumvent normal Thai immigration extension requirements, I have no sympathy. 

My son (in the US) who was probably 19 or 20 at the time had someone try to cut in a long line in front of him (Black Friday Sale) after waiting hours. The two guys (adults) tried to cut in line and said they couldn't speak English. My son who's 6'7" just lifted them out of line and told them to go. The entire crowd cheered.

I would expect my bag to disappear about 50% of the time.

Thais and other Asians leave their shoes in line

 

 

 

Have a nice Day.

I was at Savv once where three birds were in front of me, they had not filled out their forms, so took turns going to a table to fill out their forms and got back in the line. A member of staff was watching (a bloke), he waited for one bird to come back to the line then told her to go to the back of the line.

 

There was a lot of "verbal", she would not move until she got to the window and was told to go to the back of the line...

I think CW has changed but there used to be a congo line of bags/water bottles/bits of paper, et al. Mostly agents i suspect who do this as their job everyday.

People arrive early leave a marker and go for breakfast. Only silly people stand in line for two hours. 

 

Doesn't matter where one comes from. If there is a local system simply follow it.

Only silly people let other people "push in".

So your post "I find" is infact wrong as to find is to see. So therefore your post says you yourself have been There to see it not mainly falang in queues

The trouble is there they only use 1 window.

 

When I was there last week, a lady wasking about getting her visa back that afternoon.

The Immi guy kept telling her it wasn't possible and she was asking about an "express service" or could she pay extra.

When told she couldn't, she asked to speak to "someone else".

 

Two people in front of me were asked to fill out the applications forms again because they hadn't photocopied the rear of the document.

 

If you get 3 or 4 incidents like this, it really holds everyone up.

I fail to see how someone who go's back to their home country once a year to catch up with friends and relatives

and get's a non-immi whilst they're there as circumventing the system TBH.
