I this wasnt Thailand with its total fear of anything remotely like forward planing you might even think that expecting a rush at "opening time" they may have pre phoned the order so as the staff could have it ready on trollies before they arrived and then make the financial transaction at a legal time .........ok nah TIT
Reading noosard's earlier post about arriving at the wholesalers before 11 and seeing trucks already loaded and more loading underway and the guy with a fist full of receipts, it seems that pre-ordering and loading before the official 11 a.m. flag fall was already being done. With some provincial governor's making decisions at 9 p.m. the day before and the volume of posts from the forum panic merchants asking if anyone knew what was happening, even the oh so clever farangs were clueless.

But we won't let that stand in the way of the old "Thai people are hopeless" narrative.

If the buyers have a liquor license I think they are allowed to buy outside of those times

Not sure who saw the pictures from Gee Soon or the video from Makro but Government have seen them and are debating on whether to ban alcohol again. Health minister was very disappointed in people's Behaviour

Yesterday was a thinly veiled double non-essential beer shopping exercise for which I will forever be in the social distancing judges purgatory.

Today was a single liquor purchasing sortie at 5 p.m. at our favorite Phosri Road international liquor store. Jack and Jamesons acquired plus 1 liter of Finlandia in case I ever need a screwdriver.

I asked the chap at the shop what the deal is regards Udon's booze buying window and he reckons it comes under the government's nationwide "review in 14 days". He thinks we're good until then but it can change on a whim.

Looking at that vdo that's gone viral, as others have said, what did the government expect when there was the "today only" rumor spreading like wildfire. But a bad show by store management IMHO by letting that scrum kick off. Thousands of other stores managed it much better... well, the 6 stores I did my non-essential shopping in did.

I saw a couple of farang mental giants on Soi Sampan mid-afternoon yesterday, nursing their large, sweaty Leo's at a stone table out front of one of the massage shops on the bottom end of the street. Local lass seen lurking inside the doors, nobody wearing masks.

I wonder if they lived there being as booze is only to be drank at home ?? ... SO IM TOLD at them places a mask n gloves are the last thing that need to be worn .. a condom however is the vital part of PPE.

^ I can't imagine that rationale getting much mileage if a public-spirited local called the cops on the fμckwits. I can see such acts of in-your-face ignorance contributing to the pre-emptive, "Lets just ban booze again until they get the message" strike by the Guv'ner.

Bit early for a wall climb, eh?

I applaud any law abiding citizen that grasses up these irresponsible restriction flouters. They obviously live in a bubble , are as thick as sh*te or just dont care ..OR ALL 3 ...the Leo slurping socks n sandal gang run soi samphan :lol: :lol:

Indded Tam its early for you to be so negative , have a coffee and chill im sure Yai will be out to play soon and in this heat you might get lucking with the lack of her boobie covering attire AGAIN especially if you give her a can of Archa for breakfast.

DM chilled OUT.

Tomorrow, #6 is a holiday, is it a no alcohol sales holiday? My calendar doesn't show one way or the other.

Noticed last Wednesday local Ma and Pa shop had notice on fridges stating same selling hours for booze as the major retailers. Asked the lady why and she said 'No Poblem No Poblem'. Today the missus went down to buy water and I asked her to get a couple of cold Changs. Now 'cannot' sell before 11am lady said, "Police watching and big fines". Maybe everyone boasting about booze being available during the ban has pi**ed someone at a higher level off. You would think they would be relaxing things rather than enforcing st*pid rules.
