There was much excitement in a Bangkok convenience store at the weekend when it became clear that one of the assistants working behind the counter was being 'rather too friendly' with one of the customers.
The incident, which took place in the Central Pinklao branch of 7Eleven, was witnessed first hand by Moys Kenwood, originally from East Yorkshire. He told me:
"This assistant who was serving me gave me a crafty little smile when she asked for the 35 baht. I knew right there and then that she wanted my shaft inside her. It was as plain as the nose on my face."
Kenwood then told how he had tried to obtain the girl's telephone number, but had been amazed when she called for assistance from her boss. Kenwood:
"She was obviously thinking of her job. Having sex with customers on the premises, and especially whilst on duty, is strictly forbidden - even in Thailand - and she didn't want to risk dismissal. I can see it from her point of view now, although at the time, I was annoyed. I already had a huge hard-on ready for her."
When we questioned the young lady involved, Khun Nang, 29, she said:
"It was a smirk rather than a smile. These farangs come in thinking they can have any girl they like. Which they can, but 35 baht was a bit low!"
