Thai man and baby dumped by the wife find solace at 7/11

A Thai man with a little baby told 7/11 staff that he had no money and was going home from Chonburi to Mae Sot in Tak on a motorbike.

 

The staff took pity and gave him a bed for the night and money for the journey next day.

 

Thai Rath said that praise for the 7/11 staff had come after the Facebook post on the page of Patiphan Thongphum.

 

Concerned staff had seen the man and child huddled outside the Wat Borwin branch. They inquired as to his welfare and he said:

 

"I came home from work and the wife had left me for a younger man. I decided to take the baby to Mae Sot for my mum to look after.

 

"But I haven't been paid yet and I don't have enough for a hotel".

 

The staff organised a makeshift bed, had a whip round and posted that they hoped "Tom" would be safely on his way in the morning, reported Thai Rath.

Well done staff at that 7/11, good to see that there are kind/ caring people prepared to help others in need.

I see this level of kindness and generosity regularly in Thailand. It's why I love Thailand and it's people.

7/11 staff always seem to do the right thing by people. I had an asthma attack in a 7 /11 and the staff got me a chair and called my doctor who came up about 10 minutes later. Real Thai people  are one of the main attractions here. I dare say in Australia or USA you would be tossed out on the street and die .

That's quite a trip, especially if going with a baby. Good luck.

What mother would leave her baby... most Thai women are self centered and very selfish just take the time to really observe and analyze and the conclusion is obvious ...

Try to find a policeman to tie the baby to him.

I have always asserted that there's absolutely bugger all wrong with Thailand's social fabric.

That's true, it's when they get behind a wheel or handlebars, there begins the problem.

"Or a gun, knife, stick, bottle, can, glass ect ect".

Only one thing, that does not apply mainly to Thais. I can walk about in relative safety

in Thailand, but not in the UK.

How will he transport a baby on his motorcycle? Saw a guy holding a baby in one arm while weaving through traffic.

 

Am a biker and wish him well. But would  n o t  want to risk a baby's death if I had a chance or the need to have a baby on my bike!

 

3rd class train? Probably cheaper tthan the gas alone...

It was an appropriate answer to an off topic Post my man

As for being a native English speaker, you need to look at your own performance don't you know

The story has too many red flags.

- There is a very quick acceptance of the man's story. No attempt is made  to verify or to corroborate.  How do we know the child was his, or that he did not have a domestic dispute and just took the child? Perhaps a  dispute over custody?

 

- Thailand has the Child Protection Act of 2003. This Act provides multiple avenues of assistance that could have easily been triggered, and yet, no one did that. The assistance provided while well intentioned, if not accompanied by common sense, was an irresponsible act and was negligent.  These people should have also made an effort to;

1. Call the police.

2.  Report to Child Protection Services.  Each province has  a Provincial Child Protection Committee to provide for child protection at the local level. The Provincial Social Development and Human Security office acts as the local coordinating agency.  In term of immediate assistance, the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security (MSDHS) has established the 24 - hour hotline service also known as the Prachabodi Centre. The hotline telephone number is 1300. The hotline receives the report, then coordinates with the appropriate Provincial Office of Social Development and Human Security. The MSDHS has also established free shelters called Emergency Home for Children and Family. The shelters are available in Bangkok and every province.

 

Apparently, no one here has encountered a child custody dispute before. They are never easy or simple and are often coloured over  with tales of woe and tragedy.
