Another Pattaya own goal as tourists falling out of the new beach chairs

"Another Pattaya own goal"? What is this gibberish? Can someone translate?

Shooting one self in the foot is pretty close but total BS in this rare instance

Here we have a typical design fault. "Somebody" had gotten a nice earn out of doing this and rushes in with an untested, by the sounds of it, inadequate piece of design, that looks good and is less than functional. It doesn't matter where it is, but its just such a waste and pathetic bungling by those involved.

 

How is this supposed to make people happy. Where is the idea that we can make something really good and get satisfaction from doing it, as well as getting a buck out of it?       Aaah no f. . k that. Lets just get it done and earn a buck.     That attitude is universal and stinks anywhere.

Seems like soistalker has been at the Changs!!! 

We've sat on these type of loungers on sand in Khao Lak and on beaches in other countries. Pretty standard - and safe! The point about the pads on them being too hot is equally ridiculous as most people lie on a towel not the bare pad if it is made of vinyl like these.

Yes, many "foreigners "  have fallen out of the chairs. But their fall was cushioned by styrofoam, plastic, and 1000s of cigarette butts. It was the sewage that hurt them.

Just for those that missed it..lol

These chairs are pool chairs designed for hard support like pool deck. It's obviously not supposed to be stable on sand while contact surface is not large enough to cope with moving support. It's like trying to run a Tour de France bicycle on sand.....
I guess you didn't see the pic of the one tipped over.. On concrete!!

Best to read the OP before diving in.

This article is complete nonsense, anything is better than those cheap wooden deck chairs that have been on Pattaya beach since the 60's, these new loungers are standard issue around the world and are a marked improvement for all concerned

 

now all they need is water that you can actually swim in without contracting a severe illness or infection

yes the rickety loungers, inadequate umbrellas and cushions that cook your arse - what an improvment!

I don't see anything in the OP about one tipping over on concrete - and no picture of such.

 

The linked "source" just goes to Farcebook, so that's a dead-end for non members.

The "improvement" may be in the bank balance of those who arranged the purchases.:whistling:

It looks like the problem is that they have them too close to each other. So the only way to get out, unless you are on one of the end ones, is to scoot forward to the foot of the lounge, where there is no leg support, causing it to tip up.

"akin to a wartime torture"- 555, too funny.

 

I truly believe it's time for Prayut and the military to investigate this matter, hire some beach chair engineering experts to identify the the design issues and resolve this crisis immediately.

 

The people cannot tolerate this!
