I couldn’t help but notice one of the email headlines I received from Thaivisa this week, it kind of screamed out at me. I had read about it before but this time something kicked in and I thought I’ll have another read all about it.
Convenience Stores Get Into Bed With The Police
It was the announcement that the Royal Thai Police and 7-Eleven convenience store chain were joining forces in a fight against crime. The joint venture will roll out a pilot scheme in twelve 7-Eleven outlets in Pattaya whereby tourists and ex pats will be able to report crimes at the shops. The staff at 7-Eleven will then immediately report the incident and their location to the police who will arrive and assist the distressed victim.
What an interesting story.

Tourist 7-Eleven Assistant Actions
The scene is Pattaya and a middle aged English male tourist on his first holiday in Thailand is seen hurriedly entering a 7-Eleven store opposite a large hotel. The shop door slides open to reveal it is occupied by a solitary lady boy cashier in an otherwise empty shop. The man rushes to the checkout counter.
I want to report a robbery
A bar girl has stolen my Rolex watch from my hotel room
She bad lady…..your heart heavy too much …I want me comfort you long time
I want you to telephone the police
The lady boy disappears under the counter and emerges holding a pen and notebook in one hand and a large hot dog sausage in the other. She gently places her elbows on the counter and leans right forward revealing firm and very ample breast cleavage. She rolls the tip of her tongue around the top of the sausage and then puts it down to one side.
Tell me what happen….. no worry…my inglish good to much
The tourist forces his gaze away from the sausage, swallows hard and then starts to narrate the crime which has happened to him.
I took a bar girl back to my hotel room and she asked me to take a shower first. When I finished she was gone and so was my big gold Rolex watch.
The lady boy locks her gaze on to the tourists eyes and with her right hand gently strokes the sausage.
Hotel name you
Royal Resort Rooms
What time happen you
Nine this evening
Nine cock….mmmm….okay I telephone police
The lady boy takes a mobile phone out from under the counter and delicately places it to her mouth.
Not worry sir…I speak inglish to police… if I speak wrong you speak me I do
Despite the cool air inside the 7-Eleven shop the tourist wipes his sweating forehead whilst the lady boy waits for the police to answer her call.
Hello…offy sir…….7-Eleven have clime come here….man have plom plem come my shop…..okay I speak you what happen….lady lob Lob Lamsey long lam Loyal Lesort Looms…Lolex watch…lady steal…nine cock…..heavy heart mark mark…..now he cannot boom boom….nam ta mar mark mark…
The lady boy stops in mid sentence as the 7-Eleven front doors slide open and a lone western tourist heads out into the hot night air continuously shaking his head from side to side before disappearing into the big hotel opposite.
Inside the 7-Eleven convenience store a lonely lady boy stands at the counter watching a hot dog sausage slowly slide down the closed glass doors as Pattaya colourfully goes about her business outside.
Do you think the pilot scheme might work. I’m a little unsure myself.
