What makes me mad? Really mad? The total disregard for road rules and general stupidity on the roads. I can tolerate most other "annoyances" but not this one.
I was reminded of this 3 days ago when here in Chanthaburi a mother with 2 small kids on a bike .. all without helmets hit a car head on while overtaking. The smallest kid was killed and the other one suffered a fractured skull when he was thrown into the windscreen of the car. The mother had a few scratches.
Ice cubes in beer, intolerable.
I don't think it has anything to do with keeping the beer cold as ice lasts about 5 seconds here in Thailand...I think it's more sinister...when I've used ice in my beer I've found I drink 3 times as fast so as to avoid having a glass of beer flavored water...I think it was some beer seller who started this idea...

nah, its revolting. Who ever heard of beer on the rocks? Definitely an acquired distaste.
speaking of sinister. i go to my local 7-11 almost every day. most days, i get the same yogurt. every single time, bar none, i specifically tell them i don't want those little plastic spoons. furthermore it's always the same people working there. so what happens when i buy 2 yogurt and forget to tell them? THREE plastic spoons.
^ Ha! Yep.
I had the 500 baht double shuffle earlier today when I paid with a 1000 baht note. The 'special' till had to be opened by the 'special' assistant and there was much snapping of elastic bands and electronic bleeping.
It could have been worse. I could have been stuck behind the guy who's paying his electricity bill, water bill, internet bill and cable TV bill -and then wants three ready-meals to go in the microwave.
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
^yep, a five liter bottle of water and a straw.
Ahh 7...I love when you have 37 people all lined up behind that guy with the bills to pay and the meals to go with one till open and 8 other 7 employees reading magazines and stacking shelves out on the floor...
and what's with the ciggies in the separate smaller plastic bag within the larger plastic bag of other goods that are all hermetically sealed in nuclear bomb proof packaging??
Those pork burgers are okay if you slather them with mustard and ketchup.
