Re: Thousands of Thai Dogs Perish Due to Rabies False Alarm

Agree. And Soi Dog seem to target foreigners for oversea adoptions, at quite a few baht I may add. Damn silly cost.

I'm all for giving strays a home, as our pet was a stray, but 10's of thousands of baht for a (1) soi dog, could be better spent at a local orphanage.

Re: IHERB delivery

DHL is terrible here. Don't know about BKK, but every one of their deliveries has ended up at customs, or delivered by ThaiPost, in both Udon Thani, and PKK municipality. I'll no longer order anything they are suppose to deliver.

Yes, more times than I can count on my fingers, had to return change, or adjust check bill, as something missing.

Yes, besides the petrol station, next up would be the check bin, especially at bars. When sipping, I always pay on arrival, every beverage. Eliminates 'errors'.

Re: Thousands of Thai Dogs Perish Due to Rabies False Alarm

Unfortunately, no change down here, PKK municipality. They must have got the memo though, as they all seemed to disappear for the day or so, and I thought, YEA - gone. But seems they were just in hiding :neener: for a day or so, and back to the dog taking for a walk with a big stick...... :banghead:

Proof of dogs where abouts or demise. Heavily fined if not satisfactory. what planet do you live in ???? Obvious...

Re: GPS for Honda CRV

I use GoogleMap, and HereWeGo is also quite good. You won't even need until on, and halfway down 35 toward BKK, then good to have on, as will advise which lanes are moving faster, and quite handy at times. There really aren't many 'go arounds' if an oops on 37 / 4 / 35. Do plug in phone, via car lig...

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

I actually don't know a single Farang who actually uses the coins when shopping, which is why they will see it pointless handing them over with our change. You don't know me, but I use them when shopping, as like getting rid of them, along with not wanting any more. Use to just throw them on the gr...

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Do the same, stand there, count it, if wrong, hand out, just wait for the rest to arrive, and rarely have to ask for it. Go figure.

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

21st Century, good luck know the source of parts for anything. USA guidance systems on the Tomahawk cruise missiles depend on special materials that China has a near monopoly on producing. Made / assembled where ???

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Rare, but it happens.

Do you count your change every time, or simply put in pocket, by just looking at, and if close, no prob. Use to do that, until wife told me to always count.

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

A common 'error' at petrol filling station, and many other registers. The Mrs catches it a lot, as usually pays out her window. Most times, no question or argument, and the missing 100 baht appears very fast without question. Amazing Thailand. Twice I didn't even have to ask for the missing 100 baht...
