I would have thought a "Romance Traveller" would visit many establishments who ask no questions.

I don't stay overnight in those places, an hour or two at the most.

As for nearly everything here in Thailand : " Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst "

Hopefully this guy is less xenophobic than his predecessors. The money Thailand takes in from expats annually reverberates out in countless ways. Even the rural folks benefit. Alot of the nicer houses

I understand there has been a new person appointed to be the head of the immigration, visa etc. department.  Any comments on his disposition towards those of us living here on retirement visas?  I ful

Alot of the nicer houses in the poorer farming areas were built with money from expats. Alot of trucks, cars and income is from expats. Countless business employing many. To say it is insignificant, is a blatant misunderstanding of Thai economics. Thousands of hotels, restaurants, countless airlines and many tour companies, also benefit. This hapless administration needs to develop some courage and initiative. They can't hide from the world forever. Extreme timidity from supposedly tough men is an amusing thing to witness. However, the pain they are inflicting on millions is not. 

 

And expats should be treated with far greater respect and dignity. They need us more now, than ever. 

They have already told us how much they "need" us.. The ball is in our court.. Those of us who can....will leave.

I sure hope not, when they bang together when you run they would shatter.  Now Steels balls would be better, but the so is a Magic 8 ball.

You won't think steel balls are so great should you walk to close to one of those junk-yard magnetic cranes.....

People aren't even sure of their own disposition ie how they would react under certain circumstances, let alone somebody else's.

Exactly. I don't understand how the OP would 'prepare '  for an unknown.

Pretty broad statement there Fred. 

I could leave but am not even thinking about it. Surely I'm not alone in that.

All true but let me ask you a question. Do you think this phenomenon whereby previously poor uneducated and - crucially -  deferential people get ideas above their station is welcome or repellent to the Bangkok establishment who decide on policy?

OK that's how you take care of your wife but how do you deal with those pesky DIY jobs?

Duct tape works for most of those. Not so good for pipe leaks but it works for a few days and I don't need the ball-gag for them.

Good, as long as you don't mind them turning green.

Simply a matter of keeping them polished my friend, and I have somebody that is highly skilled at that fortunately.😁

Besides that it makes for interesting pillow talk. Some ladies like scars too. Everybody is kinky, some just haven't found their kink yet!

Utterly repellent, of course. Any disturbance to the status quo, is strictly discouraged, and forbidden. Do not rock the boat, or disturb the gravy train. I think some Thais resent us deeply, for giving our women a widened point of view. An open mind can be a dangerous thing!
