It was a bit 1996. (Go on, say 'NOT" and that will make it automatically hilarious.)

Thai women. Don't get me started.
There are few problems in life that cannot be solved with toast.
One of them, however, is opening a can of corned beef with that stupid key. This cannot easily be done at the best of times, and toast is of surprisingly little use in resolving the issue.
Our new and expensive Samsung washing machine; piece of shit. It's under warranty the only thing that keeps me from shooting it.
Samsung tv = shit; Samsung refrigerator = shit; and now this! Never again.

bugger... we just bought one last week. We are moving the end of the month and the new place didn't have one, so we got a samsung bargin for 8k.
^ Well, we'll see how this works out. This is our first warranty job. All the others expired right after warranty. But even so; I'm done with Samsung Thailand.
A bridge too far...
By the way; these are products that commonly last 10 to 15 years in the U.S. with zero problems AND are a hell of a lot cheaper!
There's a brand called Fisher & Paykel which electrical-appliance-fixer-upper guys swear by.
"Why the fucking hell did you buy this piece of shit na?"
i have a mitsubishi fridge. which thought was a car..
Okay, then there is the bury everything in cement; plumbing in particular! Arrrrrrgh! Water leak!
Fuck me; I have to bust concrete to get to it. Fuck! Fuck! Fuck! How fucking stupid is that anyway?
Never, ever, ever, again! If there's a next time; IT WILL BE DONE MY WAY; NO IF, ANDS, OR BUTS ABOUT IT...PERIOD!!!!!!
Okay, I'm done...
Must be some pos Samsung made in Thailand. Everything samsung imports to North America is top notch stuff.
Samsung, like most Korean companies do and Japanese companies did, exports their highest-quality products to America because it's such an important market. They export their lowest-quality products to SE Asia and less important markets--including domestic. This is why a Samsung t.v. in Korea is usually crappier than a Samsung t.v. in America.
Koreans have gotten angry about this, but they get angry about everything.
Maybe Samsung doesn't like Thailand and sends them shit products on purpose.
China made products are the ones that are made cheap and fall apart after a month. At least in Canada they do. Not sure about in Thailand though.
It's been an export reality for decades. In Mexico you can't find shrimp over an inch long or a decent tomato. Since America is the most coveted import market in the world why would anyone want to lose their share by sending shit?
I see Japan as the only Asian nation (maybe Singapore) that has the sophistication to know the difference between a tomato that drops to the floor and explodes and one that bounces back up like a tennis ball. Oh, and the Japs hardly ever buy their own products, cept food, especially rice.
When I'm in the Third World what I miss most is the variety, or the option to pick what's cheap and what's quality. In Thailand, outside of BKK, where do you go to avoid buying shit? Half the imported chocolate you find have turned gray. And if you complain they look at you as if you're crazy, "Looks okay to me." I always say, "Yes, I'm sure it looks okay to you."
Buy a quart of milk in Mexico and you'd better drink it on your way home, before it sours.
I had an LG phone that didn't last 6 months and an LG tv that died the day after the warranty died...I've now bought a Samsung tv and bought the GF a galaxy tab...so here's hoping you're just one of those unlucky fukkers THX...
