    Post A taxi driver spoke to me in Thai today, should I punch him?

    It's 2023 and Thailand seems to have many new drives to boost and increase the quality of tourism. The guy turned off the aircon and spoke to me in Thai.

    It's 2023 and this behaviors is just silly now. Should I have wacked him?

    Obviously he was a miserable [at][at][at][at] in the land of smiles but I am more worried about the service. I paid for a somewhat coherent person to drive the vehicle and I got a grumpy rice farmer.

    You are coming off like a newbie, the purple ones are all able to speak English, so avoid the yellow and green ones and wait for a purple one.

    The purple Taxis are the ones who will take you for a ride and with that I don't mean transporting you.

    They should all speak perfect English. As far as never knowing where to go and no map, maybe some kind of QR scan app. So one can just scan one's phone and it loads the location into his gps system.

    The cure for Thai taxi drivers would just be a driverless Tesla taxi.

    If that was me, I would have stubbed my cigarette out, put my beer down, put my top back on and then gave him what for.
