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.

No mention of Thais or foreigners, how refreshing.

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

This is good. It's good to see Thailand is finally following up on lessons learned in China and Europe. Now, do the required testing of the general public.

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