I forgot to mention that I had a strange little incident when doing my 90 days at Bluport last week. Firstly, my reporting date was set for the 2nd July, which was a Sunday, so that was a bit dumb, but I had also been in Bkk and returned on Monday the 3rd, had a stomach bug on the 4rd, so finally made an appearance on the 5th, in the afternoon.
Grabbed a ticket, noted there were 4-5 people in front of me, so sat down to wait. And just as my number came up, literally, one of the assistants came around to grab everyones passport who was waiting, including mine, and they were taken away to be processed.
I was sitting at the back, so moved a bit nearer, for when she came back and handed them out. An old boy sat one row in front of me and to my right. Anyway, the passports started returning and this chap to my right got given his, but I didn't get mine. He seemed a bit confused, mentioned something to the Thai lady to his left, sat with another farang. He then showed her the passport and I saw he had actually been given my passport! He took a bit of convincing, but handed it over. He then went to explore where his was, and I kept close to him, to make sure he was okay, and he did indeed get his passport. Said lady just laughed when told what she had done.
I know it is stating the obvious, but if the mass grab happens when you are queueing, then make sure you get your own passport back!
