    » We moved to this new house six months ago and everything is fine except for the noisy dogs next door. I spoke to the owner and asked if they could make their dogs quiet and she said it's not their dogs fault but the dog opposite who always stand outside their gate and make their dogs ridiculous!...

    • Gavelind commented : Hi, I understand your problem and I think it is sad and wrong for you to come with such a remark. Your case is not about race or nationality, it is about having a bad-mannered neighbor, not a Thai, or a Chinese or a Kenyan, a person who has barking dogs next to your door. That is the problem. Well, if you don't like the neighborhood, the only thing left for you to do is to move out. I went through the same ordeal in Canada, mind you, between Canadians, coming from the same city, sharing the same language, the same laws, the same faith, the same color: their dogs made us crazy, there was nothing we could do. Calling the police a couple of times because the dogs were lose and frightened little kids playing in the street, a few tickets, took them to court... to no avail. Peace came back to us after we moved out. That's all and that's it. You are very lucky to live in Thailand where foreigners and above all women have some sorts of rights anyway. What would you do in Saudi Arabia or Turkey where women are sold on the open market and are worth less than a camel? Wake up! Why live in another country and want to impose your values on them? See where the US has gone and see how far that took them! Hundreds of thousands have died, cities are in ruins... what for? Stay home, believe me, let the others live the way they are used to. You will never change them and will only be an outcast, an outsider, miserable and frustrated. At home, you are not a foreigner, and you have rights. It is much safer too, as now that you have enemies, they will retaliate.
