  1. I should read beyond the titles before posting.
  2. Basically they need to have enough free rooms available. Hotels aim for 100% occupancy and often premium members request early checkin so if there empty rooms they often reserve those for them. If there's any left after that you can usually get them but there's no guarantees unless you pay for the previous night.
  3. This judge is an idiot, while I agree that there is no proven intent this is a negligence case, intent is not required.
  4. The SPG hotels (Sheraton/Westin/Aloft/W) do early check-in by availability, the Sheraton by the Chaopraya and Aloft seem to almost always have early availability, Westin, W and the Sukhumvit Sheraton are less likely.
  5. End of fossil fuel is near: industry

    This was a good point 10 years ago but solar panels are more efficient and long-lasting now.
  6. People who admire petty thieves probably don't have anything worth stealing...
  7. Panthongtae Shinawatra faces legal action

    Read the article, he's either guilty or incredibly stupid and I doubt its the latter. Returning the illegally obtained money does not absolve one from criminal charges so the only defense would be that he's stupid and didn't realise. That being said, they're probably trying to get rid of him too to avoid him becoming the next Thaksin proxy.
  8. Ummm Thailand has always been like this. Negligence is a way of life here and most peopleare guilty of it. You only get punished if you upset the wrong people though.
  9. Intimate touching deemed sexual harassment

    Then I get sexually harassed every time I walk near the table of gays near any male bathroom at most thai pubs.
  10. Sensitive, hard nipples can be caused by many things from arousal to cold weather. There are subtle differences, if you post them up here we should be able to confirm whether they really are an indication of pregnancy.
  11. idiot was medically defined? I thought idiot was from the Greek idiote meaning a person not interested in knowing anything about things that don't directly relate to him (i.e. someone who is intentionally ignorant). Not necessarily derogatory but definitely not positive.
  12. Video: More appalling driving caught on tape

    Oh this one is easy, they walk in, sit a test, guess them all, if they pass they get their license and drive, if they don't they repeat.
  13. I don't think steps are a good indicator. Better to measure it by hours worked/hours employed. We do this with our data entry girls, we were getting 3-4.5 hours out of an 8 hour day. Lazy by my books but not entirely bad compared to our workers in Australia.

    That's not true, section 70 of the Land Traffic Act requires you slow down. That being said, he definitely slowed down.
  15. Yep definitely true for private sector, during the floods of 2010 Khun Tun (owner of Oishi group) sent many of his workers to volunteer in the flood affected areas and he himself went up to Ayutthaya to help out yet when he needed to use the Jetski taxi for ground transportation they charged him 7000 baht for a ride (going rates were 40 - 60 baht) simply because they knew he had the money. I don't have any ethical problems with dual pricing but this guy went up there to help them yet they still overcharge him tremendously, doesn't sit right with me.
