Lawyers - A Necessary Evil

I have been involved in 2 car accidents in Pattaya, one might have been my fault, one was definitely not my fault. I won't bore you with the details but both accidents involved Thai motor cyclists and in both cases, the friendly, smiling police officer at the station tried to stitch me up. In the case of the accident that clearly was not my fault, (a motor cycle taxi driver whose taxi jacket was issued by a Pattaya policeman ran into the back of me in broad daylight), the attempted stitch up was the most blatant. Basically, because of the police connection, the officer at the station tried to get me to sign the Thai language accident report in the section normally signed by the 'guilty' party to admit liability. When that failed he tried various other tricks to get the taxi driver off the hook but fortunately with no success. My Thai wife was receiving guidance over the phone from her police officer brother-in-law in Bangkok. The bottom line is I received 10,000Baht from the taxi driver to cover damage estimated at 20,000baht and I have been told I was lucky. No, it didn't make me feel any better.

When it was too late to be of any use the family police connection told me the only way for a farang to get a fair deal when dealing with the police is to have a lawyer present. Only a lawyer will keep the police honest particularly when it's Thai v farang. Sad but true. So if you want fair treatment, you need to find a Thai lawyer who will be on-call. He may charge you a couple of thousand Baht to appear but he could save you much more if he gets you fair treatment and even better, full settlement for the damage caused to you or your vehicle. Best of luck.

  • Karaoke Wars, Soi Beokeow - Police Colonel Sutin, the Chief of Pattaya Police was one of many officers to respond to a serious fire which had taken hold of a Karaoke Bar located in Soi Beokeow just after daybreak on Thursday. We can confirm that no one was hurt in the blaze which was apparently caused by a dispute between two groups of Staff from the Dai-Eji Karaoke Bar and the New Boys Karaoke Bar located nearby.

Since her new husband is so old, Lou Anne decides that after their wedding she and Morris should have separate bedrooms, because she is concerned that her new but aged husband may overexert himself if they spend the entire night together. After the wedding festivities Lou Anne prepares herself for bed and the expected "knock" on the door. Sure enough the knock comes, the door opens and there is Morris, her 85 year old groom ready for action. They unite as one. All goes well, Morris takes leave of his bride, and she prepares to go to sleep. After a few minutes, Lou Anne hears another knock on her bedroom door, and it's Morris .and he is ready for more "action". Somewhat surprised, Lou Anne consents for more coupling. When the newlyweds are done, Morris kisses his bride, bids her a fond goodnight and leaves. She is set to go to sleep again, but, aha, you guessed it Morris is back again, rapping on the door, and is as fresh as a 25-year-old, ready for more "action". And, once again they enjoy each other, but as Morris gets ready to leave again, his young bride says to him, "I am thoroughly impressed that at your age you can perform so well and so often. I have been with guys less than a third of your age who were only good once. You are truly a great lover, Morris." Morris, somewhat embarrassed, turns to Lou Anne and says : "You mean I was here already ?" The moral of the story : Don't be afraid of getting old, Alzheimer's has its advantages.

Hospitals - Show Me The Money

For a number of years I have had annual medicals at the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital (BPH) and I have always been satisfied with the service provided. They are a little too keen to prescribe expensive medication for even the most minor ailment but other than that, no complaints. In 2005, BPH identified a problem that they advised should be monitored with quarterly scans. In 2006, I thought I'd get a second opinion and had my annual medical at the Samitivej Hospital, Sriracha. The Samitivej advised that the condition identified by BPH was minor and regular scans were unnecessary. Ahah, thought I, got you. BPH's just been on the make. My 'got you, aren't I smart' moment was short lived. The Samitivej then went on to report a totally differing set of test results to BPH. Nothing about the above normal cholesterol reported by hospitals overseas and BPH. What Samitivej did identify for the first time ever was a high PSA count which indicated possible problems with my prostate. Just mention prostate and I'm prostrate. Before the gears of my brain had re-engaged, nursing staff had led me to a specialist for the 'fickle finger' test. A test which carried an additional charge. The proctologist told me I should return for a further 'finger' in early 2007, (3 months later), as he would be taking a well earned holiday in Canada not long after that. Well earned through me I thought. I left the Samitivej still in a daze and without any form of printed medical report, (something BPH is good at), and so no hard evidence of what was actually reported.

As soon as I got home and I went on the Internet to read up on my PSA results. It turns out that my score was well below the number deemed a cause for concern in the UK and USA. I then sat and wondered if the Samitivej could be mercenary enough to mess with my state of mind just to make money out of me. Unfortunately, I think the answer is yes. I'm now of the opinion that for a farang to get value for money from a Thai hospital he needs to be genuinely ill. At least then he will get what he's paying for. If you go in for a check up, for confirmation of good health, then you are viewed as nothing more than a credit card to fleece. Bit like taking your car to a mechanic back home. Apologies to all 'cowboys' of the mechanical persuasion residing in Pattaya. Sadly, as far as the medical profession goes, it appears that the Hippocratic Oath has become the Hypocrisy Oath, a.k.a. How Can We Make More Money Oath.

If you've received bad news from a check-up at a local hospital that requires you to have frequent tests, then I recommend you get a second opinion - but probably not from Samitivej. My next medical will be back at BPH so it will be interesting to see what they report. More later.

If you have a local hospital you are happy with, please let me know by e-mail or comment so I can pass it on.

Update - Just browsing the net before posting my blog and found this post on the Teak Door Forum by Luckydog:

Quote: If you get bad news and the suggestion that you have an expensive Operation or treatment from a Quack here in LOS. Don't let him touch you until you have had a second opinion at a different Hospital OK? A Urologist in Sri Racha said I had Prostate Cancer. TREATMENT: 25000bht to cut my balls off. 30000bht for an Injection every three months (for life) and 250bht for a daily pill. Second opinion....... The Urologist in Sirijit Queens Hospital in Sattahip did a 10000bht biopsy and said I was ok accept for a bit of Prostate inflamation which was cleared up with antibiotics. See what I mean ? Unquote

  • Suspected English drug dealer caught by Pattaya police - In the early hours of Wednesday Morning, Police Lieutenant Colonel Santi from Pattaya Police Station held a press con ference at the Special Investigation Unit to announce the arrest of a suspected English Drug Dealer. Mr. Michael Snell aged 48 from Bedworth in Warwickshire, England was arrested at the LV Mansions at the Soi 17 intersection on Pattaya Third Road as the result of an undercover operation whereby a Police Operative purchased a quantity of class 1 drugs from the suspect. Inside Room Number 517 Police found a total of 16 bags of Crystal Methamphetamine totaling 16.1g. Mr. Snell is now being questioned further but is now facing a charge of dealing in a class 1 drug which could lead to a substantial prison sentence if convicted in Court. [via Pattaya City News]

  • Videohybrid is essentially an illegal sharing ring for movies, TV, shows, anime, and cartoons. In some sense it is similar to Peekvid, except that they let users request videos. Registered users can then vote up requests in a Digg-like fashion, and the first person who fulfills the request earns all of the points it has racked up. So what kind of media has been scrounged up b y their users? Here’s the top ten most popular videos that they have successfully acquired in one way or another:
      1. The Bourne Ultimatum
      2. Hairspray
      3. Ratatouille
      4. Superbad
      5. The Godfather
      6. The Simpsons Movie
      7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
      8. Rush Hour 3
      9. Knocked Up
      10. Transformers

Most of those videos, as you can probably tell, are still in the theaters. The recording quality isn’t great, but what’s more interesting is that they are available for those of you

who can’t wait for them to come out on video and don’t want to see them in the theater. Videohybrid also lets you download each movie’s associated files so that you can watch them at your own leisure on your computer. Most of them are are in the FLV file format, and you’ll need a specialized player such as GOM or VLC to play them.

It will be interesting to see how long this service survives since their WHOIS information says that they are located in the United States (Washington specifically). I have a feeling that the MPAA isn’t going to let this float by for too much longer. [via Cybernet]

  • An elderly gentleman went to the local drug store and handed the pharmacist a prescription for the little blue Viagra pill. The pharmacist asked "How many do you want?" The man replied, "Just a few, maybe a half dozen. I cut each one into four pieces." The pharmacist said, "That's too small a dose. That won't even get you through intimacy". The old fellow said, "Oh, I'm past eighty years old and I don't even think about intimacy anymore. I just want it to stick out far enough so I don't pee on my new golf shoes".

  • Foxit Reader, a better PDF reader than Adobe Acrobat Reader just got an update! Foxit Reader 2.1 is one of those free programs that I always have on my computer. It beats Acrobat Reader hands down in terms of startup speed (without using a pre-launcher), and has many of the same features. As expected, Foxit 2.1 added a bunch of new things that make this free PDF reader even more powerful. It is functionality that the majority of us will never use, e.g. Form Designer, Measure Tools, Image Tool, Link Tools, Loupe Tool, File Attachment Tool, Annotation Selection Tool, Reading History, E-mail PDF. Full details of these new features can be found here.

If you download the ZIP version of the Foxit PDF Reader there is no installation required to use it. That’s one of the best things with this free app…You can put it on a USB drive and carry it with you anywhere.

Tip: You can remove the Foxit ad located in the upper-right corner of the program in a few simple steps.

After a co uple of drinks they went off to bed and had an hour of mad passionate sex together. Afterwards, Sean says, "If you think that was good, let me shleep for half an hour, and we can have better shex. But while I'm shleeping, hold my bawls in your left hand and ma wullie in your right hand". Cilla looks a bit perplexed, but says "Okay". He sleeps for half an hour, awakens, and they have even better sex than before. Then Sean says, "Cilla, that was wonderful. But if you let me shleep for an hour, we can have the besht shex yet. You'll have to...... "I know Sean. Yer want me to 'old onto yer bat 'n balls again. No problem hun". Cilla complies with the routine. Again, the results are absolutely mind blowing. Once it's all over, they have a drink. Sean lights a cigarette and Cilla asks "Sean, tell me, this 'oldin yer balls in one hand and yer Willie in the other does it really stimulate yer that much?" Sean replies, "No, not at all Cilla but the last time I shlept with a scouser, she stole ma wallet.

Bikes & Insurance

A thread was started on a Pattaya forum about the things farangs dislike about living in Pattaya. The most frequently mooted dislike was motorcycle riders and surprisingly Thais weren't singled out on this one, the dislike covered bike riders of all nationalities. The reason being I suspect is Thai's don't know any better, no lessons, no tests but farangs do, yet they still dumb down to Thai standards when on the highways and byways of Pattaya. Overtaking on the inside, driving on the wrong side of the road, ignoring traffic lights, you name it, bikers of all nationalities do it. You don't have to live here long to share in the frustration felt by the forum posters.

My personal take on the subject is it is time for bikers to contribute to the cost of the carnage they cause on a daily basis around Pattaya. As it stands, all repairs from accidents involving bikes and cars seem to be paid for by the car owners insurer, even when the bike driver is at fault. I believe this is because the 'compulsory' insurance required by bikers covers personal injury and not vehicle repairs, (I think). The upshot is car owners have to pay higher premiums to cover repairs to both vehicles. When you consider a large percentage of accidents in Pattaya involve bikes, (I only have only media reports to back up this claim), then it's about time something was done so that bikers pay their share and stop being subsidised by car drivers.

Thai Musketeers

There have been reports in the press [via Pattaya People] recently of a Brit assaulting a Thai guy in Walking Street because the Thai guy had the audacity to brush into the Brit when walking by him. The Brit was such a hero that he cracked the Thai when the Thai guy had his hands full carrying his daughter. Within seconds the Brit was under assault from every able bodied Thai male in the area and came a sorry, second best. In case the lesson was wasted on him, I'll try to spell it out.

When I was in my teens and living in a university city in Britain, and before the Shah of Iran was overthrown, Iranian students lived high on the hog with their Porsches, Ferraris and fat wallets. They got all the best looking girls - what, English girls shallow? Never. You can imagine how popular the Iranians were with the resident males who were literally on the outside looking in when it came to the top tottie. The same applies to Thai guys working in the tourist areas. They resent farang who are generally viewed to be arrogant, rude and shagging their girls. They are just looking for a chance for a bit of pay back. As a farang, you attack a Thai, it is an attack on all Thais and you better have your running shoes with you. In my time in LOS, I have seen four good examples of the Thai musketeering attitude of all for one and one for all:

  • On Walking Street, the bars under the Marine (when it had with stairs and before Tony's/Lucifer's) were known as the Chicken Shack and hundreds of Thai girls used to congregate there each evening. I can't give you the lead up to the altercation but a farang slapped a Thai girl's face and within seconds, all the girls in the vicinity had removed a shoe and clubbed the guy bloody and senseless. He was still out cold when carted off to hospital. Stilettos make a terrible mess. His face looked like a putting green that had just been aerated.....
  • Two young and drunken farang were strolling down the Walking Street when one for a laugh, lifted some food off a food stall and kept walking. The Thai cigarette mafia appeared out of nowhere and gave the two guys a good beating. The waitress in the street front bar I was drinking in said, "farang shouldn't take the piss out of poor Thais". Nuff said.
  • A newbie walking with a frequent visitor grabbed the arse of a tout who, not being in play, slapped the newbie's face for his cheek. Or was it slapped his cheek for his face. Anyway, the shocked newbie did no less than slap the girl's face in return. Thai guys appeared by magic and the two guys retreated in to a 7-11 for sanctuary. The Thai guys followed them in to complete the lesson. Foodstuff was flying everywhere but it didn't deter the Thai guys. I suspect the newbie took a second beating from the frequent visitor for his stupidity when they both got out of hospital.
  • In JP Alley, outside the Blues Factory, a farang intentionally knocked a Thai girl backwards off her stool. Sent her flying. Before she'd even got off the floor, the farang was having to defend himself against half a dozen Thai guys intent on showing him some manners. The farang managed to get out of the alley without getting too badly hurt but I bet it's the last time he assaults a Thai girl, in public anyway

I'm sure most resident farang have similar stories to tell so pay back is probably occurring more often than we realise. Maybe each time we step out of our front doors we need to remind ourselves that we are guests and act accordingly. Forget it and take your medicine.

  • This is a true story about a recent wedding that took place at Clemson University. It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it. It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests. After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a microphone to talk to the crowd. He said he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.. As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him. So, taped to the bottom of everyone's chair, including the wedding party was an envelope. He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope. Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 glossy of his bride having sex with the best man.
    The groom had become suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a private detective to tail them. After just standing there, just watching the guests' reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said, "Fuck you!" Then he turned to his bride and said, "Fuck you!" Then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, "I'm outta here"
    He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning. While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with the charade, as if nothing were wrong.
    His revenge -- making the bride's parents pay over $32,000 for a 300 guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing the bride's and best man's reputations in front of 300 friends and family members. This guy has balls the size of church bells.

There are 3 women sitting on a bench having ice cream. One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream. The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone. The third is biting off the top of the ice cream. Which one is married?' The teacher, blushing a great deal, replied, 'Well, I suppose the one thats gobbled down the top and sucked the cone.' To which Little Tony replied, 'The correct answer is 'the one with the wedding ring on,' but I like your thinking.'
