NE Thailand: Non-mask wearers allowed to do squat thrusts instead of face fines

i bet thais would rather pay the fine than actually do a bit of exercise!!

Squat thrusts are second nature to most Thais. As just one example, my neighbour who is 77 does squats all day whilst doing his bamboo weaving. He never seems to tier Thais a lot fitter than people think mainly due to the simple practice of sitting on the floor.

Look at the reality.

The majority of Thais, outside of the cities, would have to sell a family member to raise 6,000 baht.

I have 12 staff and I pay above the minimum wage, but none of them has 6,000 baht to give away. (Yes, they all wear masks.)

Most months, near the fortnightly paydays, some of them are asking to borrow money.

Times are tough. Jobs are scarce, pay has dropped and only the very rich are making money.

The NE of Thailand is not renown for being a high income area.

Punish them but let's not break them.

@moonlover. ok yes maybe because of sitting on the floor, squat thrusts would be easier for them to do but my main point was in general thais dont do any kind of exercise, they'll get a motorbike to the end of the road rather than walk.

Have you ever been to the USA?

And nobody challenges the utter nonsense of wearing a mask while riding a bike.

No helmet but a mask. I still have problems to digest/overlook this absurdity.

It tells a lot about this country.

Of course with the daily bathroom exercise 😆

That too is regarded as a healthier way to go which is why we bought one of these 🙂
