If I need a cigarette, it´s not the best idea to criticize me. Remember the Snickers ad. 😇

 

Why the hell is the idiot carrying a gun in a rubber factory???

Why "the hell is the idiot carrying a gun" ANYWHERE??

It's not easy to get a pistol here for a normal Thai person.  If you don't own property forget it,  if you not well healed forget it.   There is a mountain of paperwork, interview to attend, inspections,  questions..... The quickest way to get a license is to say you carry a lot of cash frequently or you have reported to the police an attempt was made on your life.  Will shorten the whole process from a year plus to a few months. And will you wait the few months don't get ambushed and shot!  And we were told do not offer tea money to smooth the way...it just makes them even more suspicious about you. 😕

Got to be so careful. Don't get angry when a motorbike beeps you on the sidewalk, when smoke is blown in your face or someone jumps on the BTS before you get off. Stay calm & stay quiet. TIT. (No guns please!) 

 

when a motorbike beeps you on the sidewalk - footpaths are for pedestrians, not for motorcyclists. If nobody points this out to them, they'll never learn.

 

when smoke is blown in your face - why don't you just bend over and let them blow it up your ...? 

 

someone jumps on the BTS before you get off - chaos. Again, explain to them that it makes more sense to let people off before others get on. 

 

I completely agree with you that people should remain calm, but I do believe it is possible to point these issues out in a friendly but firm tone/manner without beind offensive or arrogant. 

 

Nobody needs to put up with krap.

Considering that they have universal military service - the standard of marksmanship is appalling! Close enough to be arguing about smoking, he fired five rounds and only hit once, in the hip!

Can you smoke in Thai jails?

Anti-smoking forces got lighting up in prison banned a few years back when they banned display of cigarettes for sale, hiked taxes, and a host of other restrictions. Maybe rising gun violence has to do with all these restrictions on stress relievers. Stress - the real health hazard.

Brain dead. Effed up his young life because of such a trivial matter. Throw the key away.

Well if the so called authorities would get off their fat <deleted> and uphold the law these things would not happen. There has been a law in place since February 3 2019 banning the smoking of cigarettes in public place including pubs, clubs, public buildings etc etc but does anyone enforce NO so the authorities only have themselves to blame. 

I read the other day fine for smoking 5,000thb, fine for allowing someone to smoke on your premises 50,000thb, nice little money earner for government if they could be bothered to uphold the law

In the larger context, even saving face is trivial in my opinion.

From a western perspective, "face" is totally over rated, the curse of Asia!
