A Thai man went on Facebook to relate his experience of a taxi ride in the capital.

When the driver got to the area of the Fortune Town intersection he said he was too tired to go on.

Driver: Nong! I just can’t go on. I need to stop for a nap at the lights.

Me: Do you want me to drive?

Driver: I was hoping you were going to say that.

Me: Okeh…(Is this really happening to me) (I think to myself)

Got to the destination – it was 300 baht – paid in full.

Me: Phee! We’re here! Are you OK to drive now?

Driver: Yes, I’m fine now. Thanks a lot.

Take care and drive safely. If you need to just have a lie down.

The post was widely shared on social media and reported on by Thai Rath. There was a video of the meter running up past 245 baht and pictures of the driver snoozing in the reclined passenger seat.
