    You've obviously never shopped at Makro Ted?
    There they check everything against your receipt - easy as there are no bags.

    Supermarket chain Big C announces foreigner evening curfew
    Posted on March 27, 2015 by Around The Moat in National News // 28 Comments

    Expat foreigners living in Thailand are to be excluded from Big C stores after 5pm, the company has announced in a statement.

    Due to complaints from Thai natives, Big C has decided to implement a total ban on foreigners from entering their stores between the hours of 5pm in the evening and closing time.

    The measures are being taken to appease Thai nationals frustrated by having to wait in line behind foreigners who have not grasped the basics of the Thai language or the ability to recognise the difference between Thai coins.

    Thais are notorious for their lack of patience, and a dithering old westerner counting coins at the checkout till is a key frustration of the indigenous population.

    The ban will apply to all persons living in Thailand that are not owners of a Thai ID-card. Thais of a particularly pale complexion but have been advised to bring identification with them to the supermarket from now on.

    Big C expects the ban to have minimal impact on their expat customers. A Big C spokesperson said, We dont expect many expats to actually be affected by the ban as they all have maids or Thai wives that can do the shopping for them anyway. Furthermore they are often rich and do not work during the day, so they can pop along then if they need to. But for hard working Thais who only have a few minutes to quickly buy some stuff on the way home after a days work and picking up the children, it will make a big difference

    This ban should allow Thai nationals a more pleasant shopping experience, where they can push and shove in the queue as much as they like without drawing the wrath of an older white gentleman who will shout at them in a language they dont understand.

    Big C loyalty card holder Pongpat Siriwatana commented, In the last week Ive told six different foreigners to go back and weigh their vegetables, but somehow I still end up waiting at the till as the shop attendant runs off to weigh the produce for them. How do they not learn?

    ^ that's it but complete BS.

    Dear readers,

    It is a joke!

    Big C is the best supermarket in the whole country! The service is super, the prices are great and they have the best customer care ever (also, they have the best lawyers… )

    Dear Big C,

    Accept our apologies. We didn’t mean to hurt you. We have removed the article and will not charge you for all the free advertising.

    Best regards

    Around the Moat


    didn't see the humour personally...just really silly....and sillier still those that believed it 55 C is business....hello!

    I could not see the humor in it. It will have done his site's credibility no good at all.

    Yeah that would have gone down better if these Moat idiots were actually funny. Sadly, they're not.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
