Yes, they stamp the passport with a "Hello Kitty" logo as part of their loyalty scheme. Once you get 10 stamps, you can have a free cup of coffee 🙂

If true, well, it is not worth it to get passport pages used up.

Paranoia and a police state overbearing behaviour... from this silly TM30 to the need to show your ID/Passport/driver's license everywhere you go and need to buy/pay, and yet, thousands of criminals and illegals are everywhere from scammers, to con men drug dealers and hardcore criminals hiding in plain sight...

Not sure where you are going, but i have never been asked to show my passport anywhere. Thai drivers license is fine, and only ever show it when checking into a hotel or at a traffic stop which is fairly infrequent. i.e about once every couple of years.

 

According to the OP this is the store decision which they have been doing for a number of years? How is that the police fault?

If they ask for my passport I’d dump the goods and walk away

Why?

 

You could just say you are not a tourist so don't need the VAT refund, pay for your items and leave.  Please tell me why dumping your goods and walking away is a better idea?  I'm interested in your logic.

 

Then lets imagine a Chinese tourist in your country, does his/her shopping, a cashier asks them for ID to support a VAT refund at the airport, they get furious without asking any questions, they dump their goods and storm off, causing disruption and inconvenience for the shop and for everyone behind them in the queue.   Would you tell everyone you totally understand and support them, or would you say they were horrendously rude, selfish, and inconsiderate?  Idiotic even?

 

Please answer.

Don't burst the poor little fella's bubble.  If he wants to traipse around a supermarket putting goods in a basket or trolley, then stand in line at the checkout, then, when it's his turn, wait while the cashier scans and bags all his items, only to stomp out in a hissing fit, with no groceries and no dignity, due to a misunderstanding, then let him get on with it.  I'd find it quite amusing if I were next in line.

Don’t answer stupid questions

And I”ll take no lectures in Thailand about “rude selfish or inconsiderate “ the country wrote the book on it !
