Good for a big laugh  A show of readiness!
How about a prove of readiness?
No long hours waiting for a immigration stamp in a overcrowded arrival hall with a few lanes for foreigners and 3 lanes for thai were just a few only pass by and the immigration officers rest, stare in the air, doing nothing 
BKK, order Phuket to have just 1 lane for 'thai only' and more lanes for foreigners

So while they were doing this passengers were waiting impatiently in the terminals? Good call. Just do your jobs, don't make a big thing about just coping.
