Two angry shoppers, said to be Chinese nationals, fought over a basket of Thai products at a 7-Eleven store — an incident that could have been easily avoided if they just walked 200 meters to another 7-Eleven.
The video, which went viral last night and amused Thai netizens to no end, showed two women fighting over the contents of a shopping basket as a man tried to calm them down.
The display ended when a store’s employee desperately intervened and yelled in Thai, “Mee! Mee! Mee!” which simply means, “We have more!”
The location of the store was not revealed.
Thailand was the top holiday destination for Chinese tourists last year and 7.9 million of them flocking to the kingdom in 2015. For this reason, some 7-Eleven stores in areas popular with Chinese tourists have dedicated a shelf to products that would appeal to Chinese holidaymakers, such as Thai cosmetics, Thai medicine, honey, and other souvenirs.

Many netizens commented on what the women could have possibly been fighting over. From looking closely at the packaging in the video, many agreed it must be this aloe vera & snail lotion.
