Every instance of corrupt extortion has it's own flavor...

 

Are "you" going to take a chance of being on the recieving end of physical harm for $3.00...

 

Take a pic of driver and his machine...turn it in to the police...

But of course he wont be the reciever because hes 33, tall, and works out. lol

 

no doubt he will show them a hiding!!

 

that is, until the other 8 whimpy Asians come out of nowhere and get him on the ground and kick his noggin in. 

lol

no wonder these guys get in trouble in Asian countries.

sound like another typical G.I Joe

try to demand an extra 100 baht as you depart. 

 

Somebody is pretty simple, all right. 

I did something similar with a taxi driver in Cairo, Egypt, many years ago.  We had agreed a price of 10 Egyptian pounds for a ride to a market.  When we arrived there, he said "15 pounds".  Without missing a beat, I said, "Five pounds!".  He just laughed and I paid 10 pounds and left his taxi.  I had no idea that he was going to ask me for more money, and I certainly hadn't planned to offer him less.  The words just popped out of my mouth at that moment.  And to this day, if anyone tries to ask for more than the agreed price for anything, I offer less - just to let them know that renegotiation of deals can go both ways.

You guys are far nicer than me. I've walked away from a demanding baht bus before but that was in Thailand.

 

In Laos I lean towards letting them throw a fit if they want too, maybe this is a mindset I'll regret but I don't see why you guys would let scammers push us around so readily.

Too right. I once held a bus conductor boy over the open door of a moving green bus in Bangkok after he refused to give me 2 baht change from 5 baht given. I lost my temper, I'm afraid, but he did give me the 2 baht. It was the principle, not the amount, that was important.🤨
