Alcohol kills brain cells. That's probably why your Thai remains p*ss poor.

I find my Thai is much improved after beer. Just like my driving!!

You only think both have improved, because alcohol also removes inhibitions.

These truck drivers get a lot of stick on here

That´s mainly because they have bad driving skills and always blame faulty breaks. That does not mean they do not know how to change a tyre.

"A trucker that was in the lay by came to my assistance and together we changed out the wheel. Once done i tried to offer him some money but he would n't accept anything from me at all, i forced 500 baht into his pocket and told him to go for a couple of beers."

 

This behavior is very suspicious. I wouldn't trust such people.

A lovely story which shows the true nature of the vast majority of Thai's.

 

The issue is still that in too many number these same lovely people will fall asleep driving their lorry, minibus, or suffer 'brake failure' and run a red light etc....   even though these drives get the brunt of the stick, its not all their fault, it is also the fault of their bosses who force long hours, or are too cheap to maintain the vehicles etc also govourment for not adequately educating and enforcing. 

 

Lovely and kind can people of any nation can still be a danger when permitted to remain innocently ignorant to the dangers they 'may' present when in control of machinery, cars, lorrys, mini-vans etc. 

 

All of that said, one-on-one Thai's, like the majority of those from every other nation on earth are a wonderful people - in aggregate we sometimes judge by the lowest common denominator - its a shame, but its human to do so. 

 

Thai's are great, but so are most other nationalities.

drive faster next time, aim for concrete

i was going much faster earlier, unfortunately there was heavy traffic hence the reduced speed.

 

btw had a horrible old hag in the tire shop later on in the day that balanced it all out, proper witch!

My point is that he did not need to help, he chose to.

 

Most people know how to change a tire ( do you? ) but many drove past without offering to help, that's my point.

 

Too difficult to understand?

Yes, I understand do you? I make an easy enough equation for you. Bad + Good is still going to result in BadGood. As you clearly can se, one does not take any the other. As you tried to make it sound by stating that many posters complain about the truck drivers. What I pointed out was that changing a tyre, does not have anything to do with the negative posts.

Now i hope that you understand too. As I already do, we can then stop the conversation. Have a nice day!
