In Thai culture, to lose your cool is to lose face. In interactions, you get furthest when you are polite. Excessive impatience and assertiveness generally result in others turning the other way, including officials and vendors, basically avoiding you and tuning you out.

Thai culture is one of the most civil civilizations in the world.
