What about saving when he was able to scam by overcharging hundreds tourists daily ?

Spent all the money in new mobile phones and beer ? so sad ! but i already spend my money to feed stray dogs 🙂

So he rode hundreds of tourists daily but only made 400-500 baht. So, say, 2 baht a trip? Shame on all those tourists for scamming him. You must have been one of them, since you know, and I doubt you have any money to spend feeding stray dogs. 

 

Hope he finds something in construction w/ a fair wage then.

And so coronavirus altered the environment and habitat of TVF posters. As they were forced to stay inside more often, they needed to exercise their fingers more to keep active,

Yes we have all noticed that from your postings

So when the tourist start arriving again - It will be back to the old scamming days - but much worse - as they will need to recoup that "net egg" from somewhere.

I was going to post something similar. When farangs abounded they had good days, but now they know what it was like for the BGs in low season.

It is hard to be sympathetic for these guys, so many of us probably have had a negative experience. I used one a few weeks ago to go between WS and LKM and he drove like a maniac and was rather surly and impolite. Not so much as a thank-you when I tipped him quite well.

should have asked him "from how many trips?"

 

But he can get 600 if he works in construction as opposed to 500 sitting on a street corner.  Choices; choices.

Most of these motorcycle taxis have fixed prices for the popular destinations listed at the rank. They're not too extortionate given they have to compete with the baht buses. A few bad apples for sure though.

Not in Phuket

If it's low season for the BGs, how is it not also low season for the taxi drivers?
