15K on a Sunday - hold on folks it is about to get very bumpy and very much 'locked down'.
I think Tim saw the writing on the wall a long time ago when he decided to stay in Phuket - he has been around a while and saw it coming. Chris from Retired Working For You moved to Samui a few weeks ago, and I think he also saw what was coming.
Many decades ago a lady work friend was laughing quietly when one of the blokes was talking about his new 4WD. I could see something was up and later asked her. He had bought a Mitsubishi Pajero and I did not know (many dont) that a Pajero in Spanish is a wanker. We both thought it suited him perfectly and it became the 'in' joke around the office - until he found out - ooops. But - there was a building across the road with 'CAGAR' on it - cant remember what those letters were short for now as the company is gone - but CAGAR is Spanish for poo - she hated looking at that big sign.
Every word can be offensive or rude to someone - it is impossible to be 'correct' all the time - this current waver of 'cancel culture' is very very wrong. The last time I heard about burning books and destroying things of the past, was the Taliban and before that the Nazis.
The letter says nothing, changes nothing and will mean nothing to the population still waiting for their promised vaccines.
Corporate apologies are inevitably false and only given to deflect criticism and lawsuits.
