“May you be damned!” – Locals ignore sign urging them to stop throwing litter

A threatening sign erected near one of Thailand biggest fruit markets has fallen on deaf ears when it comes to stopping people tossing out trash.  

The sign in Wang Ta Kor sub-district of Lang Suan in Chumpon says in Thai: “Whoever throws litter beside the road – may you and your families be damned”.  It uses the expression “chip hai”  – a common verbal swear word not normally associated with signage.  Daily News went to investigate and found a mountain of stinking trash especially discarded durian husks.  It is near to the largest fruit market in the south that deals in fruit for the domestic and export markets.  The local authority have said that they don’t have the budget and just can’t cope.
