    Seriously in this instance I didn't. My job was to cut the tags that go inside sports shorts off a long roll, after a a few Leo's my cutting started to be off the line, so I was replaced by a six year old 555.

    A reminder that working for peanuts, or with peanuts, remains prohibited to foreigners

    We get Indians on bicycles around Chanthaburi selling peanuts; I always thought it was a front for yaba selling or moneylenders

    On bicycles of course that makes them pedalling peddlers of peanuts

    Illegal roti, peanut peddlers busted in Korat
    July 04, 2018
    Labour Department officials and police, acting on complaints from residents, rousted two Indians and a Myanmar man in downtown Nakhon Ratchasima on Wednesday for selling roti and peanuts.
    That kind of work is reserved for Thais.
    Preecha Intarachathorn, the province’s chief employment officer, said the Myanmar man identified only as Hassan, 18, was arrested for selling roti at Ban Natthanee Village on Sirirat Thani Road. The Indians, identified as Bhodu, 21, and Govind, 22, were arrested elsewhere for selling peanuts.

    The 2018 list

    Prohibited Jobs for Foreigners in Thailand

    (updated in 2018 - Please read the whole text to understand what is allowed or not)

    A Foreigner can work in Thailand under certain conditions. He or she will normally need a valid visa (some visas exclude working, like a tourist visa) and a valid work permit (there are few exceptions). The main law related to Foreigners working in Thailand is called the Aliens Working Act (B.E. 2521 or 1978) and was recently modified in B.E. 2551 (2008). Foreigners are also restricted to have businesses in certain fields under the Foreign Business Act of 1999.

    A Ministerial regulation should be issued before 23 February 2010 to specify what Foreigners (aliens) can or can't do. This date is 2 years after the enforcement of the Working of Aliens Act of 2008.

    However, until the new Ministerial regulation, there is a decree made in 1979 which prohibits Foreigners to work 39 occupations. Some of these prohibited jobs were modified or deleted. But at the moment, Foreigners (Aliens) are not permitted to work in the following positions:

    Labour work except labour work in fishing boats under the next category below. The said work which is forbidden to aliens shall not apply to aliens who have entered into Thailand under an agreement on hire of labour concluded between the Government of Thailand and other nations, and also aliens whose status has been prescribed as legal immigrant and who possess a residence certificate under the law governing immigration.
    Agriculture, animal husbandry, forestry or fishery, except work requiring specialized knowledge, farm supervision, or labour work in fishing boats, particularly marine fishery.
    Bricklaying, carpentry, or other construction work.
    Wood carving.
    Driving motor vehicles or vehicles which do not use machinery or mechanical devices, except piloting aircraft internationally.
    Front shop sales and auction sale work.
    Supervising, auditing, or giving service in accountancy, except occasional internal auditing.
    Cutting or polishing precious or semi-precious stones.
    Haircutting, hairdressing, or beautification.
    Cloth weaving by hand.
    Mat weaving or making utensils from reed, rattan, jute, hay, or bamboo.
    Making rice paper by hand.
    Lacquer work.
    Making Thai musical instruments.
    Niello work.
    Goldsmith, silversmith, or gold/copper alloy smith work.
    Stone work.
    Making Thai dolls.
    Making mattresses or quilts.
    Making alms bowls.
    Making silk products by hand.
    Making Buddha images.
    Knife making.
    Making paper or cloth umbrellas.
    Making shoes.
    Making hats.
    Brokerage or agency except in international trading.
    Professional civil engineering concerning design and calculation, systemization, analysis, planning, testing, construction supervision, or consulting services, excluding work requiring specialized techniques.
    Professional architectural work concerning design, drawing/making, cost estimation, or consulting services.
    Dressmaking.
    Pottery.
    Cigarette rolling by hand.
    Tour guiding or conducting.
    Hawking of goods & Thai typesetting by hand.
    Unwinding and twisting silk by hand.
    Clerical or secretarial work.
    Providing legal services or engaging in legal work, except arbitration work; and work relating to defense of cases at arbitration level, provided the law governing the dispute under consideration by the arbitrators is not Thai law, or it is a case where there is no need to apply for the enforcement of such arbitration award in Thailand.

    This regulation was modified and a new announcement was made in June 2018: (Taken from the Ministry of labour website)

    Shit I've done that before. I like rollies better than regular cigarettes and often carry my own tobacco.

    From that list I'm not supposed to even make my bed or take a shower by myself. 5555

    I think we are just supposed to sit on the street and hand out money.

    One of the great pleasures in life... having a shower with a lovely lady. But, they always come with a cost.

    But, making my own bed is just something that I've always done.
