  • Hotel Washbasin falls on customer’s feet.

    Facebook User Nueng Nstar shared pictures of an incident where a hotel’s washbasin broke down in the bathroom along with blood as a result of the accident. Nueng had plans to stay at a hotel in the Rattanathibet area, Nonthaburi Province for over 10 days from 6 December to 17 December 2019 for work. A friend in the group was using the bathroom when the washbasin suddenly fell down onto her feet. The victim ended up with 9 stitches (sutures) with a medical bill of 6,300 THB.

    The victim tried to talk to the hotel about the accident. Instead of reasoning with the customers, the hotel denied all responsibility and stated that they want to press charges for breaking their washbasin. Nueng stated “The washbasin in the hotel’s bathroom fell down onto my friend’s feet. We talked to the hotel manager and asked whether they would be taking care of the medical bills as the accident was a result of faulty products in their room.

    The manager told us that they have no responsibility for the issue and that the customer must take care of all the medical costs as no one from the hotel was at the incident when it happened. How could they say that? we just want the hotel to take responsibility for the situation that happened. It’s 600 THB per night, we’re staying for more than 10 nights with a total bill of over 6,000 THB.

    Not only is the hotel denying any responsibility, they told us that we might’ve tried to remove the washbasin. Who would do that? I use it to wash my face not to dance on it. I came here to sleep, do I need one of your employees to come shower and sleep with me? This is not ok, I only asked the hotel to take care of the medical bill but now I might want something more. From what the manager told me if I was stuck in a falling elevator and died then it would be my fault if there was no hotel staff in there with me. This has affected my job and my feelings.”

  • Taxi returns 120K to Australian BusinessMan.

    This story helps restore some faith for Thai taxis. A taxi driver from Roi Et Province returned 120,000 THB to an Australian Businessman along with some valuable goods on 3 November 2019.

    Uthit Sanehha 49 years old returned a handbag to Holler Andreas 47 years old, a businessman from Australia. Inside the bag were EU bills,  USD bills, and THB bills coming to a total of 120,000 THB. There were also some other valuable goods in the bag. Holler had called a taxi from his hotel on 2 November 2019 on Silom Road. The hotel staff had placed his bag in the trunk of the taxi, Holler didn’t actually get to ride in the taxi but the bag did.

    Holler stated that at 13.46, hotel staff from the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G on Silom Road called a taxi for him to head to another hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 8. The hotel staff placed his bag in the trunk of the taxi. The staff then walked to the driver and asked whether he had change for a 1,000 THB bill, to which the taxi responded no. The staff then walked back into the hotel to get some smaller bills. The taxi must’ve misunderstood and drove away.

    Holler was still standing on the road confused, he didn’t know if the taxi driver realized his bag was in the trunk. Inside was his passport, ID card, 6 Credit cards, 3 iPhones, 4,000 Euros, 1,000 Swiss Francs, 10,000 THB, and 30 USD.

    Uthit the driver stated that he normally starts driving from midnight to 12 pm every day. But on the 3rd his taxi needed some repairs so he needed to drive to the taxi garage. At 9 am Uthit started to clean the taxi, this is when he found a black bag in his trunk. He was shocked because he couldn’t remember which passenger it belonged to. He only remembered that there were 3 groups of passengers who placed items in the trunk.

    The first person is a foreigner traveling from Silom to Sukhumvit 26, the second was 2 foreign customers traveling from Sukhumvit to Jan Road, and the last customer was a local traveling from Mo Chit 2 to Sukhumvit 62. Uthit didn’t know what to do so he called the owner of the taxi garage and some other taxi driver friends.

    He decided to open the bag to see if there was a phone inside incase the owner tried calling. At the same time, the taxi drivers received a call from FM 91 notifying the drivers that a foreigner had forgot a bag with valuables inside. Uthit knew this must’ve been the owner so he borrowed a friend’s taxi and drove to the radio station.

    Uthit states, he never wants something that doesn’t belong to him. If no one called the phones inside then he was going to file a report with the police. When he saw the bag he just thought of how to return it to the true owner as fast as possible. He has been a taxi driver for a long time and had previously found 50,000 THB left behind by a passenger which he returned. Holler was very happy to get his good back and gave Uthit 15,000 THB as a kind courtesy.
