Maybe it's true that we often value what we don't have. Discipline, to put it mildly, is a quality in short supply in Thai culture. What we do have is plenty of the opposite, known in Thai as mug ngai.

Mug ngai can be roughly defined as a tendency to take the easy way out with little concern for the inconvenience caused to others.

Taking shortcuts by driving the wrong way or riding on footpaths is just one example.

Paying bribes to traffic policemen, throwing trash on the ground, and performing shoddy work are all other examples of our mug ngai culture.

Sådant beteende kan inte vara populärt framförallt av militären.
