I think its a good move to keep the elderly away from any potentially infected people, as we all know the elderly are at a high risk of contracting it.   The smartest Thai thing I have heard

How do us old farts buy our booze then?

Try walking real slow with her holding you up, she can tell them she take care you 🙂  

I only really go to Makro for bulk booze, so unless they take the Chonburi governor at his word when he said he was limiting alcohol sales to 6:00 AM until 6:00 PM, then this isn't much use to me.

That's alright Charlie. The statement says:

 

"Makro's decision to reserve special hours for the elderly (60-plus) and those with special needs"

Of course not -- every large extended family group will bring along a token 60+ year old so they shop at the early hours.

damn, my planned trips to go early if I awake early are in the drain now ...

 

and how many old people will actually be there

 

a bit like in europe ... 5-10 parking spaces for handicapped people and they stay open most of the time

Reminds me of the time I purchased a ticket for something in Singapore at the old persons rate, I asked them if they needed ID, their answer of "that won't be neccessary sir" quite upset me. 

 

A mate, who has sadly now left us, had the opposite "problem" in the UK. A museum offered his (40+  year old) Thai wife "student" rate, being an honest chap he did insist on paying regular "adult" rate.

Seems you can't be trusted with the money, so a real predicament for you.

Is 57 considered elderly?

Average life expectancy in Thailand seems to be 75.30 years, so 57 would be nearly at death's gates then.
