A family of four was put off a Bangkok-Samui bus and left stranded late on Sunday night because one of their children was crying.

 

Mongkol Thongboran says he and his wife and two sons were told to leave the bus at a petrol station in Prachuap Khiri Khan's Cha-am district. They had only Bt25 in cash.

 

Mongkol said the bus steward told him that the second driver could not sleep because of the crying child.

 

Mongkol said his youngest son cried for just 30 minutes and other passengers did not complain. He said his son was frightened because it was his first trip.

 

Mongkol said the bus driver should have parked at a petrol station for five minutes to allow his son to calm down outside the bus instead of ejecting him and his family.

 

Mongkol said he had to stay overnight at a hotel at the petrol station and continued the journey by train to Surat Thani the next day, after relatives relatives wired them the money to pay for the hotel accommodation and train fare.

 

The family finally reached Koh Samui at 9pm Monday.

Odered off the bus because the 2nd driver could not sleep!!

Bit drastic, Thais can normally sleep through any noise, my wife can anyway.

Maybe the 2nd driver was too high on something to sleep.

Nowt worse Colin than having a kiddie bawling nearby on any form of long distance transport,its a 12 hour trip from BKK to Samui.....:sorry:

Family tossed off bus for screaming kid reaches Samui safely

A family travelling from Bangkok to Koh Samui on a transport company bus were told to get off in the night as the relief driver couldn't get to sleep.

 

Mongkhol Thongboran and his wife and two kids were dumped at a gas station after his youngest cried for 30 minutes.

 

Mongkhon told Thai Rath that none of the passengers complained. He even praised some foreign tourists on the service who showed concern for the little one's welfare asking if he had a stomach ache.

"He had never traveled long distance like this before," explained the aggrieved dad after the family finally reached Samui by another route.

 

"He was scared but all the passengers understood he would stop in a while. But the relief driver couldn't get to sleep so they tossed us off in Cha-Am".

 

The family spent almost all of their travel money on a room for the night at the gas station - they were left with 25 baht and had to get relatives in Samui to transfer cash. They continued by train and were picked up in Surat Thani by relatives.

 

Mongkhon said it was awful to be treated like that and asked the authorities to look into the matter.

 

The story was widely shared online.

please explain to me that if your child is continually crying at a high pitch for 30 minutes ....   why should other passengers have to endure that  ? 

The mother is responsible for taking care of her children,  that is in any society and situation ...
