I thought there was no such thing as a 'retirement visa'.

On the advice to applicants when applying for a RETIRED (O-A visa) for  on form "A" from the Royal Thai Embassy in Australia (Canberra).  To find out about what is required you look under the heading "Retirement Visa"  After you study it all up yes you realise you are applying for O-A visa.

This is just another example of frivolity.  I just love that word.  Oh! and you can only apply for a "Thai Retirement Visa" at a Royal Thai Embassy not a Consul.

You could of applied for the OA visa at the official Thai consulate in Sydney.

There is a difference between official consulates like Sydney and honorary Thai consulates such as those in Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne.

Each time I've gone to Thailand it's been on a Tourist visa for 2 or 3 months at a time.  Each time I have been offered the old Bt 30,000 to have problems disappear with retirement visa, but I decided to do it all honestly, and as you know honesty is the best policy in Thailand  (shit did I say that)

Why didn't you do it in Thailand at immigration for 1900 baht?

There isn't. It's an OA visa I believe, for the purpose of retirement.

The retirement visa are only issued from Canberra Thai Embassy not a Consul (0-A).  I'm a West Australian Country boy and the Perth Consul doesn't want to know about it and tells you to sent this type of application to the Thai Embassy in Canberra.

I don't want to or know how to put Bt 800,000 in a Thai bank account.  Just more stuffing around.  This way I just have to prove I have equal to Bt 800,000 in an Australian bank.
