I would have thought "Our country is being run by military clowns" would have been high up there.

Then you really dont have a clue, sure they dont like the military but money and cost of living are always first for everyone you worry about other stuff later.

No mention of the absolute incompetents in charge? Really? Guess they were leading questions. And shopping is somehow the answer for how expensive everything is? I have some advice. Shop less. It might make life less stressful.

Hate to say this but did they perhaps interview Thai children under that age of 13 to get these responses. I do not think adults gave these responses in all seriousness. Unless it was an online survey with fixed responses.

My landlord asked me to go halfsies with a waterheater - after not budging an inch for the whole duration of covid pandemia in months - would have felt sad about my decision if he didn't own half of the village already - such are times...

Som tam take all your problem's away! Even put money in your wallet!

Lucky for Thais, "food" grows on trees right at the roadside. Saw the other day how a security guard, working at Peugeot, just went to a tree at the curb, picking a few leaves for lunch...

My ex-wife was one for that. We'd be driving along somewhere and she'd suddenly yell out "Pull over!" She'd hop out and return with an armful of stuff.

You would think that they would have more meaningful things to worry about in all honesty.

Economy in tatters, government incompetent and wrongly in power being up there.

At least the unwashed farang spreading diseases didn't get a mention though.

May be there were only these 4 choices and no question about economy and else

I have to disagree. Having lived here on and off for decades, one might actually expect such responses. They are perfectly aligned with Thai 'sanuk' and 'maibenrai' cultural foundations. 

 

Thais, for some good and some bad, don't take life very seriously. Of course they go shopping or eat as primary methods to deal with stress.

Asked what was their answer to all this stress the replies were:

 

1. Go shopping: 51.47%

2. Play on the internet: 35.35%

3. Eat: 33.51%

 

This is why....You Get The Government You Deserve

People loose their jobs and income atm. 

The ones that are corrupt has lost many of their normal feeding grounds and maybe expanding into new areas. 

All due to Corona. 

 

The poll makes sense now.
