BANGKOK: -- Cultural differences can be funny. For instance, in the United States, if one were to spend more than an hour inside of a McDonald’s, it could likely be chalked up to a medical emergency (“fast” food being the entire point of the operation), whereas in Thailand, hanging out in your local Mickey-D’s is perfectly acceptable behavior. Or it was, rather.

The Bangkok Post is reporting that McThai, the operator of Thailand’s McDonalds franchises, has just announced that customers will not be allowed to loiter in their restaurants for upwards of an hour.

In busy places I wonder if they will have a designated enforcer?

Bit of a crappy job in a country where face is important.

Will they issue each table a timer that goes off after 59 minutes?

maybe you get a token to put into your table and after one hour, it will go up :) and so you will leave :)

insert token to get the table down and the timer starts

I don't frequent McDonald's all that often, but there is one near a hospital that I go to for regular medical checkups. If I arrive early, I usually pop in and get something to eat. Depending on the time, I occasionally stop back before heading home. I've seen the place full to the point where there was no place to sit and the same people were sitting at the window tables when I went in before the appointment and 2 1/2 hours later when I left.

McDonalds in Lotus near my house, there is a Filipino lady tutoring 3 girls in math & English, seen her often, so the operator is within reason. Next the food courts will start enforcing.
