after attending an enjoyable night at spikes birthday bash (11/07/16) I went to get the baht bus back to jomtien. this is not my most favourite mode of transport due to the fact you can choose to hang off the back where you could lose your legs if rear ended, or are crammed in and and have to sit in close proximity to other people......... even worse if next to an indian, ***racist word***, russkie who seem to be adverse when it comes to using a bar of soap or any form of deodorant.
the bus is nearly full, but a space is made available by a person as I sit down I notice I am in the middle of two ladyboys, also one opposite. they all seem to have been hit with the ugly stick, and two have rather short brutish haircuts, poss having just spent time at some correctional facility. off we go bumpity bump, stop start, bumpity bump. I now feel a movement on my left hand thigh where my pocket is. I do a small fidget and instinctively I put hand to pocket. the zip has been unzipped.
I try to make eye contact with the one on my right to let her know I am aware, but this was to no avail. as my senses are now on full alert I notice all 3 of them have very large bags across their laps. realise the bag is used to hide the arm and hand so the action of trying to dip someone's pocket is concealed.
words are exchanged between them that I could not understand. next the buzzer is pressed and they get off. slight delay before we move off so i watch as they cross the road and now flag down another baht bus. to no doubt try again. oh the joys of living in Thailand. love it.
so lads, be aware of your surrounding's, keep your wits about you, and stay street wise.
regarding edit.............the racist word was Pakistani, but I abbreviated it to 4 letters. the forum computer done this on my behalf. wonder if pom, jock, taffy, paddy are racist word ??. it seems not. will speak to petesie, or ausmagoo when I next see you.
