Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

I certainly accept that caller was not insulting me (apart from calling me preachy, no worry), as he didn't understand the full meaning of the word Boy are you dim. Frontal lobotomy? Alright enough with the insults now. Getting childish. Okay, your dictionary had a frontal lobotomy! Good enough for...

I don't know myself, but it is in a booth directly opposite the small smattering of gold shops to one side of the basement. I'm going to BP later, I'll get a pic and post it here.

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Yes accepting that just about every definition of sanctimony you can find infers falseness/hypocrisy. Anyway, I have finished now. Sanctimony is derived from Latin and means virtuousness. However, it has been adapted and is now said about someone who believes they are morally superior. Or in layman...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Where I live, out in Hin Lek Fai, many local Thai's are now building pool villas and renting them out daily and they're not complying with the law of the land, perhaps understandably considering the profits to be made! Generally they're not a problem, just family groups out for the weekend but some...

Sanctimony does imply hypocrisy. Check the definition. Anyway never mind.
No, no, no and no. Not in the context used. It's there if you look hard enough.

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Whilst only condos have been mentioned so far, I wonder if this also applies to houses. If it does apply to houses, this could be the way to close down party houses, which would be a good result. Well, where I live, the developments rules understandably comply with the law of the land, so short ter...

Caller, I disagree with you on this issue, but as neither of us have any say in the running of this Country let us agree to differ.

There are more important things to worry about - like the price of wine here!
Agreed! :cheers:

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

I've already been called sanctimonious here (which implies hypocrisy, so in fact that's b*ll*cks) That was me, having a bit of fun and I wasn't thinking hypocrisy at all, which seems completely irrelevant in this context. It was more about having an over-zealous sense of virtuousness or morality be...

Do you think that a country run for the financial benefit of one family is a good idea?
That's what's happening now - for friends and family - but you're too blinkered to see it.

I suspect a lot of condo owners who bought to actually live here will be relieved by this ruling.

By the by, for the last two Sunday's, Vorani has written critical opinions for the Bangkok Post. It will be interesting to see if he re-appears this coming Sunday.

Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

Prayut is trying to fix the problems, but he is one man, and corruption is very deeply-rooted here. As the "illegal government takeover" as you phrase it, had the backing of the majority of Thai people, do you think that us guests here should be so critical? As for eradicating Pheu Thai, well that ...
