    Interesting morning

    We had a bit of rain in the night, like you do, and everyone has gone to Khorat City. So I'm outside, in my fishing type trousers, sweeping the path and trying to get the soil back on to the garden and out of the gate runner. I hear a noise and there is this Thai dude, in a fancy uniform, glaring at me. "You av wor permit", he intones? I replied that I lived here and I was sorry but I did not think that I needed a work permit to sweep my own path. "I will see your passpor".

    So we go down to the bungalow and when we get there I notice that he has bought a friend with a clipboard. They proceed to examine every inch of 'my house' and then start going though the cupboards. I consider ringing the Mrs but the guy with the clipboard has creases in his trousers that would cut bricks and a glare that said a little more than keep quiet and still. "I see no evidens you liv he-a", he started and then pulled out a pair of pants that looked like they fitted a small Elephant. I grabbed them and pulled them over my trousers to show that they were mine and then showed him more of the same drying on the line, next to Mrs LoomB's stuff.

    Meanwhile, clipboard dude was checking the photos, all over the walls, and examining my 'day bed', in the breezy part of the house. "you not sleep togedder", he asked? I replied that I didn't as there was a Thai man who came and did that for me. There was a very-- long --pause . Then, for the first time, he laughed. Like drains, they laughed and made their way back to the road. Pausing at the gate, dude one, bent and picked up the broom. Bowing as they presented it to me, they both went off, still chuckling.

    I hear another sound, girls laughing. I am standing in the drive clutching a broom and wearing a T-shirt with "kill the bastards" on it and pair of pants outside my trousers. "Farrang, he he he", they say and shake their heads. I run and hide.

    It seems that the man next door has been hitting his wife and kids and has not paid his rent and will be leaving the area. He saw me doing some weeding earlier in the week. Dude one, was his wife's Brother.

    How's your day going???

    probably should have gotten your camera out after the levity and got a photo with him. Could have been useful in identifying the uniform.

    No way they get into my house unless they show identification and I veryfy who they are with my wife/neighbor/BiL.

    Lots of scammers out there. You're lucky you didn't end up stabbed, bound and missing watches, jewelry, car.

    They got no right to enter the premises anyway. Even police need a warrant.

    And Loombucket, who were these people? Police I assumed, but then again doesn't quite sound like it.

    If they were genuine, they would have been Immigration Officers, not police

    Yes I think they all are, and I think immigration officers would need a warrant to enter private property and search it too.

    You don't let two strangers with clip board enter your property in your home country, you shouldn't do it here either. Easy way to get robbed. At least you should have been asking for ID, what govt division they were from etc.

    Not just walking them into your house to go through your things.

    Not having a pop at you though Loombucket, just suggesting you should be more careful in future.

    Dude one, was a Policeman. He had the uniform and the gun. I spent a long time looking at the gun. The clipboard dude had an expensive suit on and smelled like a tarts hankie but I don't remember his face. I'm sure that they are not from round here. If I had been more awake, I would not have opened the gate.

    Another Interesting Event

    I was at The Mall earlier today. On the way home I decided to stop off at Home Mart to buy some screw hooks for hanging plants under the eaves of the house. As I got off the bus I saw two cops on one motorbike sitting next to the Highway Police box under the Khon Kaen overpass.

    After I'd walked by I heard the motorcycle start up and was surprised to turn and see the cops following me at my slow walking pace.

    I tried to ignore them and headed straight for Home Mart.

    I found what I wanted and decided to browse a bit when the cops came in the store! They started following me around inside. (As if having the clerk dog me wasn't enough.)

    Finally one cop stops me and asks, in Thai, "What are you buying?"

    I answered him in English and moved on. He kept following and asked, again in Thai, "What kind? Where are they?"

    This time I answered quickly in Thai, paid the bill and got out of there.

    I immediately hightailed it home, not looking back, but thought of this thread while doing so.

    What's up, anyway?

    Yeah, I had the immigration "investigation unit" around - looking for 'illegals', a lot of hot air about nothing.
    I came out to meet them in the street and referred them to the village head-man, the local police-station and the district obator to confirm everything I told them.

    The missus and onlooking neighbour were laughing afterwards, my face had turned white as chalk apparently.

    Gossip had it I was arrested and in the slammer,
    the sister-in-law came rushing along to help the missus an hour later.

    Ferking village morons...

    It seems that the 'Gentleman' in question (the bloke next door) was arrested this morning and hauled away. I was out and missed the whole thing. Police recovered a lot of stolen stuff hidden in water jars. His kids have been having a wild party ever since. I think he hit them, sometimes but he was pretty drunk most of the time so I expect that they were glad to see him go. Wife seems to do all the work anyway.
