BTS says no open umbrellas on their platforms despite heavy seasonal rain

Bangkok and its suburbs were battered by a heavy, but seasonal thunderstorm on Tuesday afternoon. The rains brought with them the usual traffic chaos during the rush evening hours.

 

Those trying to avoid the jams by using the BTS were greeted with a request, from the station announcer, that open umbrellas should not be taken into the stations or onto the platforms.

 

The request was greeted with consternation from their customers, who cited the open platforms and leaking roofs of the BTS system as the reasons why umbrellas are badly needed.

Leaking roofs are needed to create more jobs for the economy.

They don't need to. Just get the money and allocate 20% to the migrants. That's how the economy works.

The Mrs. just told me the BTS also mandates people should not wear backpacks on their back.

 

Backpacks are supposed to be held in front of oneself

If BTS doesn't allow umbrellas, then the logjam on the stairs is gonna be a nightmare, because nobody wants to stand in the frontlines, that are soaking wet.

:cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

Only in Thailand: Backpacks are now frontpacks.

 

I remember my first visit to Thailand in 1990 while "backpacking" around the world. Thank whosever god it is, there was no BTS then. I remember weighing my backpack - it was over twenty kg.

I'd like to seen anyone walk very far with one strapped on their front.

When heading to work with my computer backpack, I always placed it in front of me when boarding a crowded train.  It's the polite thing to do, rather than shoving it into the face of the person behind you.

I hold my backpack next to me, beware if you are a kid or vertically challenged friend of Snow White.
