The article says mass police but only 4 in the photo 

 

The headline  looks very  miss leading

 

Plus probably more to it thab just  a work permit

 

What if he was making millions but too tight  to ger a work permit then his own fault 

Being French in Vietnam is a drawback, same same here. Specially when you upset the taxi business as in his case. Can’t, say 4 members is overkill!

I actually got a one year Ed Visa years ago, with full intent on learning to speak and read Thai.  Two months into my one year visa, immigration changed the rules, cut my one year I was already granted and paid for into a six month visa.  Forced me to pay again for the same visa while cutting it to six months, then the IO (Poipet, this was seriously the first day they started their insanity), refused to give me the visa I had already paid for and was still valid in my passport, demanded 5000 baht to make things go smoother, all the while I was sitting there sweating like a pig with five broken ribs and a broken collar bone from a motorcycle accident two weeks before, passing out from the pain, heat, and general uncomfortable confusion.

 

So no, it didn't work out.  Never had the slightest interest in learning to read Thai after that.

 

Would you like to teach me Thai?  You could end up on the front page of the TV newsletter, complete with an oversized vinyl flowchart with a dozen or so immigration police pointing their fingers in your eye for a photoshoot publicly shaming you and posting it anywhere they could.  You wanna be famous?  Ok.  I'll join your class.

It took me 1 month to learn to read Thai, 30 min a day from an AUA book, a 3 year old can do it, well my kidsndid by that age.

 

I was thinking about of teaching Thai to foreigners next year. Why would I be publicly shamed? Not sure what you're  going on about.

Wow, one month.....Did they give you a degree for next years WP...?

One month is the recommened time to learn to read and write. Good book which they still have at AUA, nothing special about it. No need for sarcastic comments.

Well you spelled "learn" wrong in a couple of minutes, how you can read, write, and I assume speak  Thai in a month is astounding....😲

And you didn't  even spot the other spelling mistake, recommended. Dont get a job as a proofreader.

No I didn't, I had to stop to suss out "kearn".....I was just amazed you can do all the Thai lingo stuff in a month yet make English mistakes...

I do have an excellent spell check though for my inadequacy......🤩

Do you seriously think I cant spell "learn"?

 

You need to find some friends buddy, join a club or something. Or learn a new language 😉

No, but you do not check your work, or have a spell check, I find that strange for a bloke that after just one month is in a position to teach his new language....🤔

 

PS. I do not need to join any clubs, I have you lot and my waterside hangout...🥳

It was a typo not a misspelling. Pitiful to draw attention to it.

Most probably he was competition to some other decent local brown-enveloppe-contributors to the neighbourhood cop shop.

Is this the same Frenchie who had his picture snapped at the pier? So someone had it in for him. I don't look at it as anything serious, but unfortunately this country does. I would think that if you pick your nose or scratch your erse with those being an actual professions, then you would be arrested and deported. He really should have just been warned and wared hard.
