    nice work from a pair of idiots, one of whom allegedly has me on ignore and his own failed marriage proves he was the failure, and the other who is but hurt because I pointed out the violence is not funny.

    Currently the old lady spends about 4-5 hours a day on FaceTime supervising the $15K renovation of her house in Taphan Hin. Squabbling among two of her brothers and son resulted in one brother and son sent home. I think her stress level will go down now with those two yahoos gone. All they did was talk smack about the brother in charge of the project.

    Wasn’t going to do this until we moved back but my BIL in charge lost his 25+ years job because of COVID. Figured he needed something to do for 3-4 months.

    Hopefully with 25+ years in one job he'd be ok financially . . .

    Front desk clerk primarily. Assistant supervisor. Was only making 14,000 baht a month after all those years. In Nakhonsawan.

    SK, Plus how much from the employee tip pool. Normally hotel employees get a nice little amount from shared tips as well. Be worth asking him.

    Thats going to be me next week. The wife and I are are finally getting started on a pretty big renovation on the house. Going to expand and reinforce the kitchen which had begun to subside after 20 years. Then convert the back porch into an indoor atrium. We have to take out a sala to get the pile driver in, so adding a nice guest cottage which will be ensuite as well. Our housekeeper is getting a new bedroom, and a new laundry room, plus we are putting the water tank on a tower so most of the house will be gravity flow then. Starting next week. Going to be living rough for a few months but the end result will be nice.

    The wife has been dealing with most of this with some input from me. So she has been pretty much on edge the last month or so. Getting in a better mood as the start time nears.

    ^ excellent AO, nice to have some activity in that subforum and renovations are a nice alternative angle.

    I feel however we need a TD construction thread queuing system else we'll all blow our beans and having nothing left for the rest of the year. I'll phone Mrs Toot and tell her to press pause after the roof has gone on, she'll understand.

    No need to do that carry on. Ours is hopefully 8-10 weeks. With the rain I see 3 months easy. Getting the freaking pile driver in is going to be the biggest problem.

    Love your house but the kitchen definitely needed an upgrade. Can't wait to see what gets done to it.

    Reasons for wives to get angry -

    - PMT
    - Menopause ( the monster paws)
    - husband won't do as he's told
    - husband does as he's told therefore he's a pussy
    - husband fights back
    - husband refuses to fight back
    - wife's girlfriends are (perceived to be) prettier / richer / more popular / smarter
    - mirror shows unacceptable image despite eating for hours and exercising for minutes
    - just because

    Im slowly coming around to the benefits of living alone. I rarely argue with myself, but submit to prevarication more often.

    She said he never did anything for her so he climbed the highest mountain and swam the widest sea to prove his love.

    She divorced him because he was never home.

    And -

    wife when single on the prowl with gfs sees a man and thinks ‘oooh he looks sensible and reliable - mum will like him so I’ll have me some of that’ (as if .....) and then when married thinks ‘oooh that bad boy who made me do unspeakable but thrilling things (which didn’t make me a slut because he was in control so I couldn’t help myself) wasn’t so bad after all’ and then looks at boring decent nice guy husband with renewed contempt ....

    only happens because they are sexually frustrated, think they are still in their 20s when they are in the early 40s, and men will fight for her like she was in her 20s

    hence rush for a rewatch of "50 shades of grey" and then buy the book

    ‘men will fight for her’

    Had a spine-chilling revelatory moment talking to a young German woman years ago.
    She broke the silence of the sisterhood and revealed that the female equivalent of men watching hot girls pash is women watching rugged men fighting (over them).
    Noooooo ......
    But it makes perfect sense when you think about it.

    it's an animal thing, there is nothing you can do, they have no control over that feeling

    that's why our next evolution is going to be gayness

    watching men fighting over you, must be a huge ego booster, which goes very well with the fundamental narcissist nature of women
