  1. A few years back one of the radio shows were doing a review on the latest model of Ford cars to come on the Thai market, the radio presenters a male and female were discussing the latest technology new features, amongst which was the automatic braking in slow traffic, a feature that applied the brakes automatically so you didn't run into the car in front. The female presenter without hesitation said, thats a great car for all the ladies out there that are applying makeup whilst driving in the slow moving morning traffic. This brought to mind a former girlfriend that met me one evening driving her own car, usually during the weekdays she used a company car for work, but she explained that she crashed her company car that morning whilst applying her make up.

  2. I'd like to counter the part that says "people cannot multitask" If that had read "men cannot multitask" it wouldn't have caught my attention, however I think that women are natural at multitasking. It may be because since time began they always had to feed babies and carry out their everyday activities. No medical evidence to back this up but if you think about it... Personally I can't manage the multitasking of being able to speak on a mobile phone whilst walking, even in my car I can't use the handsfree built in phone whilst driving. On the upside I'm now able to chew gum whilst walking, which in itself is quite an achievement for a non multitasker. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  3. Advise the registered owner that he remains the registered owner and that if the car was to be involved in an accident and no one took responsibility (there was no one at the scene when the police arrive), it will be the registered owner that has the problem. Not really a threat, but should assist with changing his mind. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  4. Granted that is one way but something that I wouldn't want to do as you are then beholden to that particular factory and they can play games with you when the product isn't, pick any of the following; ready on time/wrong spec/failed inspection/increase prices...

  5. Business visa and Work Permit are both required. You may think you are under the radar, but you will be wanting to receive payment from someone, be it the commission from a factory or the payment for the goods. If the payments were made by cash then maybe you could fly under the radar, but I can tell you I have left money with factories rather than allow them to make a transfer into my bank account since I changed from biz visa and WP, to now be here on a Non RE extention Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk

  8. As in people just walking by and not stopping to speak to the rat, take a selfie with the rat, pick up the rat to take to a BBQ? Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  9. I usually see them once a year on my soi. You know they are coming as the ropes are laid out and the cut off steel drums they use to pull through the drains are usually piled up along the soi the evening before. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  10. That task is usually carried out by the Corrections Department and they use convicts that volunteer for the work Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  11. Good suggestion, and one I hadn't realised was an option just a few few years ago. I went to Hong Kong airport, just to give me 2 additional days in Thailand. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  12. Unsure how that would in any way or form be the answer to his question. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  13. I would feel terrible, but my feeling terrible is not going to make a difference to the charges that will be brought about by the Thai Customs Department. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
