    I swatted a thai today

    I went to pick up my daughter from school but parked over the road from the school requiring me to cross over the Ped crossing to get there and back.
    On the return there were about 10 kids waiting to cross also, normally there are two cops to stop the traffic but not today. I got them across onto the median strip Ok and waited for a break in the traffic, saw that, so shepherd them most of the way when some idiot comes belting down the the road bearing straight towards us, lights flashing and horn blaring. At the last moment he verred into another lane, there were two empty ones beside him. The kids got a fright, one tried to run back to the median strip, I grabbed his collar and got him to the side of the road. I loaded my daughter into my vehicle and quickly took off.
    The idiot was parked about 5 cars ahead of me at the next set of lights, so I made sure I kept my eye on his pickup and kept a discreet distance back. After only 4 kilometers he makes a turn left into the local fresh market. I park beside him and walk over, tap on his window. He knew something was up because he tried to lock the door but I got to the door handle and opened it before he could.
    I said to him, did you see me trying to get the kids across the ped crossing ? he replied with some stupid response like, "its a road, you should wait until no cars are coming"
    The red mist dropped and I gave him a slap, he gets his mobile out saying he was going to call Police. I grab the mobile and throw it on the roof of the market, give a another good slap, reach in and grab his car keys and heave them up on the roof to join his phone.
    Get in my car feeling very happy with myself and a lot of dumfounded Thais staring at my departing vehicle.

    excellent.

    I get fed up with being told not to get involved with the little bastards because they will shoot you and stuff.

    sounds thoroughly deserved to me.

    poor Thai guy

    you know they have a car so are "KING OF THE ROAD", keep out of their way

    actually, I can't agree with hitting him, but throwing his keys and phone away were an excellent idea

    think of his embarrassment trying to get them back

    When I read that it did cross my mind that he may be urgently on his way to hospital but it turns out he was on his way to the market, probably to buy more Lao Khao.
    Congratulations.

    Well done.

    Though some of these sneaky bastards have been known to come looking for revenge & he won't be on his own.

    Bear it in mind when you're next in the area.

    ^^ Yep, I would say there's a very good chance he'll be waiting at the school tomorrow with a few of his mates. Keep an eye out!

    Absolutely, keep an eye in your rear view mirror to see if you're being tailed by anyone. Brave thing to do, but in Thailand not always well advised.

    I'm disappointed...... You mean that you didn't get the ole "hey this is my country! So I can run over them if I want to..."response?

    This guy just doesn't know how to back you off.... I get that all the time and immediately it puts me in my place and I know who is in charge...

    The other hypocrisy here is that with the right of way laws always favoring a scooter over a car in an accident no matter how ignorant and at fault the rider is, How did this twit think these kids don't have the right of way? As a father, slap him once for me too....

    Respect !

    I find that carrying an umbrella and swing in a wide arc on ped X works wonders too.

    Beer's on me for anyone who can catch one of these bastrads with an airport trolley whe their car ignores the zebras at cobra swamp airport.

    Seriously, PP, get yourself a stun gun & a can of CS at the minimum & keep them in your pocket for a while. A samurai sword under your seat wouldn't go amiss, either.

    Just hope he's not strapped-up

    Good effort PP

    If his phone was on vibrate he might be able to get it to trundle down the roof slope and off the edge by phoning himself from a call box enough times but his carkeys should be history unless he can hire a trained monkey from the monkey shop.

    He won't tell his mates - loss of face - so he'll do nothing about it.

    If he had mates with him who saw it, or he's known at the market, then he might because otherwise (again) loss of face.

    Yep, do get yourself tooled up preferably with legal stuff...hopefully the retard has had time to ponder on how close he came to having to pay a 500 baht fine for mowing down a bunch of kids on a zebra crossing, but if not then him and his village will be coming the Thai way, from behind.

    I can never resist a smile when Thais tell me this country has never been occupied.
