Thai people patient or impatient
« on: November 09, 2015, 04:30:30 PM »
I know there are bad manners in every country, here is a few that i have noticed here, not a rant, just merely observation. But it might only seem bad manners to us.

We all know thai drivers seem impatient and always in a hurry, anybody who's been here for a while would have noticed, you could be in a queue ie. bank or whatever, when someone will blatantly just wander to the front and interupt the conversation, trying to get served first.

Even when the elevator door opens they want to get in the lift, without letting the people out first.
“jai róon” (ใจร้อน)

Yet on saying that ........

I have noticed in a goverment office or hospital or some where similar if they were told to take a seat, it will be at least an hour or so, they barely complain about having to wait so long, they wouldn’t go to the person in charge and say hurry up.

So patient or impatient  ...  or only patient when in a hospital :evilgrin

I think Thai drivers are very patient compared to most in the world.  As for queuing in banks that has nothing to do with patience. Only the lower social orders queue in banks.

As for lifts I think the Chinese are the worst in the world.  They have no concept of letting people get out before crowding in.

Bangkokbank sent me a VIP card in the post, where as you don't have to queue, I get some tight lip looks when i use it, but i have learned to smile since being here. ;D

I don't have a VIP card from BKK Bank but at Chok Chai, there are one or two Staff on the customer side of the counters, who speak a bit of English and will try to help. But as a Falang I would find it a bit embarrassing frankly to be dealt with in preference to hard working Thai folks who probably have a lot less time to spare than I do.
Outside the City and rush hours, Thai drivers are IMO reasonably patient - some exceptions of course, probably as in any other Country.

Patient or impatient, But certainly not courteous this time. This clip found on stickboy.com of a lady in a wheelchair with her dog trying to cross the road in Bangkok. well done that taxi driver.
