By shortcuts we fall

Another great op-ed from K. Voranai over at the Bangkok Post, here he openly discusses that fact that because most people in Thailand aren’t willing to finish things 100% and follow the correct procedures and hence the issue that we arrive today in with politics.

From tuk-tuk taxis and motorbikes to sports cars and luxury sedans, observe the traffic and notice that everyone looks for the shortcut. Jump the light. Sneak the U-turn. Up on the road shoulder.

There’s a queue? No worries; let me call somebody. There’s a wait? No sweat, a gift basket to the right person will get you in. Shortcuts, bless the Lord Buddha, in Thailand we love them.
