Why are the rich and famous so agressive at times while the poor are nearly always meek and mild, silly realy as they have a lot more to lose and their real selves are exposed to what they realy are. :o

Thai action star to be charged over filling station assault

Police are set to charge a Thai action-film actor with assault after he was caught on security camera attacking a female attendant at a filling station in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Attendant Saowalak Boonrerk, 31, claimed the actor – named as Ponlapat Welsh – initially complained her service was slow. When she placed a sign on the front of the car, making a loud noise, the actor and his female passenger got out and complained to the manager.

The actor chastised her again as she opened the fuel tank, then followed her to the staff booth and slapped her violently on the ear.

A medical test showed blood in her ear canal. She now has to wait four to five days to see whether her eardrum was injured in the attack, which will further affect the case.

Hua Hin Police Station said it was waiting for the medical test to be confirmed on July 23 before contacting the actor to inform him of the charge.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.


Road-rage Benz driver under fire
Elderly man says he was punched and ordered to apologise to driver's mother

An angry Mercedes-Benz driver has become the target of online criticism after a video showing him punching a 69-year-old motorist and ordering the man to apologise to his mother went viral.

Montri Sakhun, a resident of Samrong village in Nong Song Hong district, said the incident occurred on Thursday when he drove his pickup truck to a local shop to renew his vehicle registration. The trouble started when he turned right into an area in front of shop.

"Suddenly, a black Mercedes-Benz cut in front of my car. The driver, about 165cm tall with fair skin, got out of the sedan and walked toward me," he told local reporters on Saturday. "The man punched me in the left temple and said I'd driven my vehicle to cut in front of his.

"I apologised to him even though I thought I was not wrong but I wanted the problem to end. I was also afraid that the man might have a weapon. The man asked me to get out of my pickup to prostrate myself in front of his mother, who was sitting in the Benz. I did what he asked. The woman told me that she was slightly hurt in her forehead. I apologised to her and left.

"But the man did not stop. He said he would kill me if I was not old. The incident happened in full view of shop staff, but nobody dared to intervene for fear of being assaulted."

After the incident, he phoned his children to tell them what had happened, and later gathered video evidence from the security camera installed in front of the shop to file a complaint with the Nong Song Hong police.

Warut Meeta, 31, a grandson of Mr Montri, asked police to make the Mercedes-Benz driver answer for what he had done. His family would not compromise over the incident, he said.

Just another case of terminal madness

Last weekend there was bit of a scene at Don Mueang airport when a passenger, after being told he was too late to board a domestic flight, decided the best response was to pick up the AirAsia computer laptop and smash it on the floor. Not a good idea.

Somehow the fellow, a former policeman, thought that arriving just four minutes before the plane was due to take off for Khon Kaen, was more than enough time for he and his wife to board. After being told they would have to wait for another flight the couple gave the AirAsia staff what can be politely termed a "bit of an earful" before he grabbed the laptop, hurled it on the floor and stormed off in a rage.

To be fair, the fellow has since apologised, admitting he was too late for the flight and paid for the damage incurred. But the Airport Authority of Thailand (AOT) has reportedly filed a suit against him. One suspects this sort of thing goes on more often than we know. There is something about airports that brings out the red mist.

There was a similar event at Don Mueang many years ago involving an Australian tourist. He discovered at check-in that his name wasn't on the passenger list and was politely told he would be put on standby. He told them what he thought of the situation, but unfortunately none of the Thai staff understood the meaning of "don't come the raw prawn with me".

He stood there for a while seething and then decided to take it out on the nasty laptop which had deleted his name. In front of the horrified staff, he grabbed the computer and smashed it on the floor.

Despite his behaviour, he got a seat on the plane. Apparently the ground staff just wanted to get rid of him.

Do you know who I am?

Airport incidents do not always involve computers. In Thailand it's often a result of someone who thinks they are important throwing a tantrum. This is known as the "do (sometimes 'don't') you know who I am?", syndrome. Readers may recall an incident at Suvarnabhumi airport a few years ago when somebody "important" slapped the ears of an airport security guard who had the temerity to request he underwent a standard body check. Sadly the ear-cuffing worked because he was let through, while the person he assaulted had to go to hospital suffering from ear drum damage.

It's not just airports. On a highway near Bangkok a couple of years ago an important person refused to submit to checkpoint breathalyser tests simply because he was ... well, important. Alas, "do you know who I am?" still works a treat in Thailand.

Sorry mate

It is felt that the most pertinent response to someone who comes out with "do you know who I am?" is to reply, with a hint of concern, "No, I'm sorry, I can't help you there."

There is a lovely story concerning the late British Queen Mother visiting an old folks home in England and inquiring sweetly of one of the residents "do you know who I am?" To which she received the concerned reply, "No, I'm afraid not dear. But if you ask one of the nurses, she'll be able to tell you."

Acting up

Celebrities are often accused of "do you know who I am?" moments, but sometimes they can't avoid it.

When actor Ian McKellen showed up at the London premiere of Lord of the Rings, the doorman wouldn't let him in because he didn't have a ticket. The actor explained that he was one of the cast and was to appear on the stage before the film. The doorman was not convinced. Amused but a little frustrated, McKellen had to resort to asking the doorman if he knew who he was. "Sorry, I don't," came the reply.

At which point McKellen turned to wave to hundreds of fans outside and they all erupted with cheers. "Well, they all know who I am," he said, as the embarrassed doorman hastily let him in.

The beach bum

Some years ago actor Leonardo DiCaprio had a quirky experience while strolling along Malibu beach in his shorts. An elderly woman mistook him for a starving beach bum and offered a sandwich to keep him going. An amused DiCaprio accepted the sandwich, but thought he should explain "actually I'm an actor". The lady replied rather indignantly, "And I'm Raquel Welch!"

Actress Drew Barrymore had a similar experience while sitting in a Hollywood restaurant. A woman approached and offered what she thought was a compliment, saying, "If you were a bit fatter you would look just like Drew Barrymore."

Missing Edith

The item mentioning Edith Clampton (Mrs), in last week's column coincided with a couple of letters in our PostBag section about the good lady. One was from Ron Martin enquiring about Edith's whereabouts and the other from Constance Beasley who provided some answers. According to Constance, Edith is stuck in lockdown at home, wherever that is, and it is unlikely that she will return to Thailand as she believes it's no fun anymore. She may also be upset that in last week's column an "m" accidentally went missing and she became Clapton. Perhaps she's taken up the guitar.

Taman Tun

It is important to get this right.  "Do you know who I am"?  is far too passive.  "Don't you know who I am"? always works for me.
If the old only could, if the young only knew.


Ha! ha! do you or don't you - the reality is, only the guy in question feels he is so important as he has got a few bob, but not enough to buy manners. but they seem to get away with whatever by just paying for the damage.

Do you know who I am?

A crowded flight was canceled after an airline's 767 had been
withdrawn from service. A single attendant was re-booking a long line of
inconvenienced travelers.

Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight
and it

The attendant replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help
you, but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to
work something out." The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so
that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

Without hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her public
address microphone: "May I have your attention please; may I have your
attention please", she began - her voice heard clearly throughout the
terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS.
If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14."

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man
glared at the attendant, gritted his teeth and said, " You!"

Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm
sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too."
