Bangkok dialogue

I am apartment-hunting. The landlord of the place I’m looking at points to a sign in the lobby of the building.

Landlord: This building also has a shuttle bus, it can take you to the BTS [elevated metro system], only 15 minutes.

Me: It takes 15 minutes to get to the BTS?

Landlord: Yes, very convenient.

Me: But the nearest BTS station is a 5-minute walk from here.

Landlord (laughs): You know, Thai people don’t like walking.

Me: You don’t say.
