Okay, that isn’t so bad, I know; but the scumbag assholes stole from blind people.
My English mate Keith and his wife Sarah go to the blind people for massages every week nearly. He told me about the despicable act a few weeks back.
So Keith and an Australian guy Barry who had a couple of spare phones donated them to the blind people so they can again have a little bit of freedom and be contacted by clients to book massages.
The blind people are fully qualified masseuses and have certificates to prove the fact. Even though they are totally blind they can still live a fairly normal life and are very busy most the time with a constant stream of customers. They charge 120 baht for one and a half to 2 hour massage.
The 2 ladies were busy with clients today and were hard at work when we arrived. I have never had a massage from here and truthfully haven’t been for a massage for 2 years I would say. Keith said they do a great job and are really strong and the massage is as good as or better than others he has had before.
Keith and Sarah showed the main blind man, obviously by feel all the buttons on the phones and then we had to make some adjustments such as making the tone for each time you push in a number when you make a call, each number gives off a slightly different sound and they can obviously here this.
He picked up the on and off buttons quickly and then the dial and stop buttons. He was given a run down on connecting the charger and he was virtually off and running. It took about 20 minutes with a few technical problems, mainly because all of us were fools about changing some of the setting in the phone.
I was really proud of my good mate and other acquaintance at the really good deed they had done. I sadly couldn’t contribute as I don’t have any old back-up phones or I would have given them a phone as well (really I would have, I’m a nice guy).
So after a really horrible act it was replaced by some really nice people and it also made some other people really happy. I am really proud of the blind people being independent and working and it must have taken some guts to do this initially. I see beggars down the market better off than these blind masseuses and this is why I don’t give them a red cent. Two good arms, legs and eyes, they could be working if they really wanted to I am sure of that.
