Agreed but  , oh come on , don't be such a kill joy.

 

I really want to lay into my fellow countryman especially when he only came clean when he thought he was gonna get caught  

and be in a pile of shit with the police.

 

He can consider himself lucky that Jeap is not such a toe rag ad himself.

My wife had a souvenir shop in Patong Phuket many years ago. If she caught a tea-leaf and she's no slouch then she and the adjoining shop keepers had an alert system. When and if caught they had to pay 10 times the price or the cops would be called. They always paid up. Said Italians were by far the worse.

So its over, good for them both

 

Now then....

About 7 years ago i got on bus in Takua Pa along with Mrs P and found a roil of 5000 baht on our seat

 

Sorry to say we just pocketed it as no came to claim it on the journey

Not theft just good fortune i feel (although of course bad for them)

I remember Mrs P attitude was if we gave the driver he would just pocket it

 

Your suggestions to the  netiquette  for such an occurrence

You made the assumption that the bus driver was as dishonest as you and therefore decided to steal it first.

Doesn't matter whether Brit or not as there are people of any and all nationalities who would do this.

My character judgement of her said all along that she was truthful about the 2,000. Those who disputed that (some vehemently)  on here need to eat a little humble pie.

I hope the thief will learn from his error in judgement. And that those who said nasty things about her realize that there really are many good Thais like her.

 

All is well that ends well.

So here's the protocol when you meet a Brit: Shake their hand and then ask them to lift their right leg.

The protocol in the current climate would be to check that you still have a wrist watch 🙂 From a proud Brit.

Actually I want to ask a serious question, how do we know he is British ? We only have the lady,s word to go on, he may have spoken English but could be from a multitude of different countries, the police were not involved so no sighting of his passport or drivers licence, I mean he could easily come from the USA, NZ, SA, AUS or God forbid even the Isle of Wight......................

Where is Bazle? Just interested in why he tried to convince everyone, on more than one forum, that the money came from the Brit.

I predict 30 plus pages of Brit bashing now, par for the course on here, but you cannot tar everyone with the same brush. (From a proud Brit !).

You're scary.

 

Too quick to position yourself away from the rabble.

 

Are you a f/t pickpocket ?
