You just gotta laugh, bridge was built after cables were installed, so no communication between relevant authorities, bloody pathetic.

Reminds me of years ago in the UK, i was stuck on a train for over 9 hours, train was stranded because the wrong kind of leaves were on the tracks.

Yes, I remember that pish poor excuse. Wasn't there also the wrong kind of snow later?

They are going to have a meeting in a local restaurant, on expenses, to decide a date to hold a meeting at city hall to decide who will form a committee to debate the possible way forwards, and to decide which one of their relatives companies, if not all, could be employed to make a feasibility study on how best to remedy the situation. Should take care of the next six months or so......

The question is: Why do idiocies like this keep occurring in Thailand?

 

Because (1) noone - the workers or the bosses - has their brain switched on for independent thought or action and (2) noone will in any case take responsibility for doing anything.

 

And why is that? Because of the constant presence of the cultural values: hierarchy & status, and fear of loss of status. If you do nothing and say nothing, no harm can come to you ...

I seem to remember they brought in a special train from Sweden that had rotating brushes to clean the rails, affectionately called the Swedish Scrubber :clap2: 

Is that anything like a "Swedish Princess" (see Kingsman) my GF offered?

Highly unusual, departure from normal procedures of doing nothing as per policy regarding workdays that end in "y"

It might be the same as having your hair cut on Wednesday. Very unlucky.
