So why would anyone dedicate a thread about boring convenience stores like 7-eleven, ding dong that annoying for some chime, when everytime someone enters or leaves. WHY ... because it's part of a lot of expats daily lives, your in n out in a jiffy, opposed to trying to park your car at a mall, walking a great distance, looking for what you want, now i wonder what floor that shop will be on. only to come back to your car after a couple or so hours, oh no your car is blocked in. enough to make that bottle of milk you went out for two hrs ago turn sour.

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, food and drink. over 8,000 stores in thailand. if you don't like the microwave meals make yourself a sandwich, take some bread and ham back to your car with a coffee, on with the a/c, a bit of music n stuff your face. you might like to gather round outside like these people from Baan Tai when there only one store, being the center of all the party activities around the island.

Stray dog saved from poisoning by 7-Eleven staff  none of us are really fond of stray dogs or the soi mut with his grinning teeth, but it's not the dogs fault that they are not kept down to a minimum in numbers and they are allowed to roam anywhere. the problem is overlooked.

these kind staff at 7-eleven paid out their own pockets to help this dying mutt, kindness at it's best ...

Stray dog saved from poisoning by 7-Eleven staff, rescuers

A stray dog in front of a 7-Eleven shop in Trat’s Muang district escaped death from poisoning thanks to quick action by the store’s staff and rescuers of a local foundation.

The dog, nicknamed Pepsi, was found convulsing and foaming at the mouth at 3.50am Friday so the staff called the Sawang Boonchuay Foundation for help.

Rescuers from the foundation force-fed the dog with some 30 chicken eggs prompting it to vomit and rid itself of the poison. The cost of the eggs was covered by three of the convenience store’s staff.

The staff said the dog, which is thought to be seven or eight years old, has been living in front of the shop since it opened three years ago.

Shoppers often bought food for the stray.

I just dont think that will ever happen "90 day reports @ 7-eleven" you would have to be trusting the staff at getting it right, any mistakes could be costly, anyway they might microwave your passport by mistake or even worst one of the dogs might run away with it. HEY! do you remember the nodding dogs years ago, 7-eleven have their own style.

So it looks like the meeting in chang mai in the above post on immigration issues was around 2014, if so nothings changed since then.
if you listen to the video @ 3:50 there is a mention of the 90 day reporting and 7-eleven idea.

was this an april fools joke, reports from Foreigners ‘May Soon be Able to do 90-Day Reports at 7-Eleven Stores’ wonder when that was dated.

Foreign residents of Thailand may in the future be able to do their 90-day reports at 7-Eleven stores, the chief of Chiang Mai’s Immigration office said today.

officials had mooted plans that would allow foreigners to use a keycard or something similar when checking in at convenience stores. He would push this idea over the next year and hoped to make it a reality, he added.
He was speaking at a meeting organised by the Chiang Mai Expats Club at Le Meridien hotel this morning. A panel of immigration officers answered questions about the new visa rules that came into effect at the end of August. The new rules focus on retirement visas and 90 day check-in protocols. link above

Thanks buffy your prize has been given and welcome to the new 7-eleven thread, being the second thread on 7-eleven after the rude interuptions of the first. funny how we reconize noises when we are not really listening to them, but the chime of the door in 7-eleven associates itself with the store.

a most welcoming sound, but the staff have to listen to it all day, ding dong or ting tong, yes the 7-eleven door chimes. even smiling faces to serve you, how do they manage it. i wonder how they train these girls, a little giggle at each other when your trying your best thai for them to understand, they get to know you too. although when i buy my milk there they give me a 3inch straw to go with it, nidnoy i say, holding the two up together, it don't get you a longer straw, just another giggle, bless em. but overall they do well with tourists and expats to cater for, we know there are other convenience stores but for me 7-eleven is tops. if you only have a 1,000 bht note they don't make you feel like a criminal. so where did they start

one of the most recognizable noises in Thailand

odd how we hear things when we are not even listening, fun time is here and lets see how clever you are, as thaiga slips into his second childhood with yet even another silly thread ...

so before we go any further into what is going to be an interesting read, the question is ... what is one of the most recognizable noises in Thailand,
not speech noises but musical type ones, like the ding when the microwave stops or a telephone chime, where this noise that we reconize so well is heard, will give you the answer to the question.
the clue is 1 number & 6 letters. each day i will fill in a letter below, so who is the brightest of them all. non members welcome just click the reply button
