Interesting visit from 4 tourist police 👮‍♀️ yesterday but kind of funny 😄 as well

Recommended Posts

This was WEIRD!!!! I have been here in Korat Thailand for over 5 years and I had 4 tourist police 👮‍♀️ show up at my door yesterday. And it had nothing to do with the police or immigration apparently a friend or family member who hasn’t seen us in years was worried I guess and called the police to go check on us 😂 turned out to be funny 😄 as hell. EVEN THE POLICE THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY!!! Including one female cop there probably because I’m married. But all was fine and they did take a picture of us together with the police and they did check my passport. I laughed and said “FOUR POLICE!!! I thought I was in trouble for a second” 😂 in the states when 4 cops 👮‍♀️ come to your door it’s usually not good and could potentially result in a beat down 😂! The Thai tourist police laughed at my jokes and said “not worry all is okay 👌 but I should call someone in the States names I think I might know who it is probably my wife’s friend worried about her I honestly have no clue but the way the cops pronounced the name I think I know who it is. They said it was someone in America calling claiming to be a family member of mine wanting to know if I was ok in Thailand and that was it, 4 tourist police VERY FRIENDLY THOUGH just for that 😂. Scared me for the 30 seconds it took me to throw on a decent shirt and answer the front gate 😂 but all was ok 👍. I was showing them in my passport where I had just done my extension the day prior actually two day prior to yesterday on Monday I believe. They didn’t really care but they checked my passport anyway probably procedures for the tourist police. When I showed the my retired US Army ID card they saluted me and I was like no need for that but it’s a Thai custom of respect here. But made me nervous for a second but no big deal plus I know I haven’t done anything wrong. Unless the feds are after me again 😂 no.

Totally unrelated several years ago my house in the United States was searched by the FBI because I had a VERY VERY secret job in the military and there was an Espionage investigation going on but I was cleared it wasn’t necessarily about me anyway but interesting story unrelated 😂

why would anyone call immigration asking about you?, " They said it was someone in America calling claiming to be a family member of mine wanting to know if I was ok in Thailand and that was it, 4 tourist police VERY FRIENDLY "
 

doesn't make any sense at all.

 

Not immigration at all just tourist police 👮‍♀️ and they were just doing their jobs and they were very nice and friendly.

I suspect someone in America worried about my wife actually but it was just tourist police and NOT immigration at all.

The tourist police thought it was funny because I was so surprised 😂 and they thought I was funny when I asked “what did I do????” And they all started laughing and the male cop said “don’t worry nothing wrong your family in America worried about you and want us to check on you” but the name they gave me sounds like one of my wife’s friends from Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I sent her a PM on Facebook and asked and she wouldn’t say yes exactly but she seemed embarrassed so I assume that she thought she was anonymous 😂 but I told her “it’s ok if you did I appreciate the concern but next time don’t call the tourist police just call us on FaceTime for free everything’s ok” and she send me back this meme:

 

The Police sounded like they were saying her name but they spelled it wrong she’s actually a VERY NICE LADY!

Wonder if it had anything to do with reports of other American nationals being checked.

If she thinks we’re ever going back to NC no way! Maybe back to Arizona some day. NC was never my home I was only assigned there twice at Fort Bragg during my 21 years military career. I have no desire to ever go back to NC I didn’t like it my second time living there after living in Tokyo and DC, VA, MD areas.

Nope it was tourist police and they said specifically why. Nothing to do with Thailand someone in America who probably watches too much TV.

I just looked at your topic and absolutely nothing to do with that just tourist police not even immigration. Immigration wasn’t even involved. The cops told me what it was about someone claiming to be a family member in the United States and I think I know exactly who it is a concerned friend of my wife we knew for years on Fort Bragg, NC. So no big deal and we talked to her.

The meme she sent me gave me like an ok I’m sorry impression without admitting that she called. Because I betcha she wanted to be anonymous 😂. I’m going to joke with her some more on Facebook. 😂! I’ll tell her it was America’s Most Wanted 😂!!!! Ha ha! I’ll get her back 😂 nothing bad just humor.
