A Thai teacher in her first year lost 1,000 THB of her SD for "being 5 minutes late" and "having had 5 visitors" triggering 5 x 100 THB fines. She has been making my life difficult with repeat complaints to my employer. Non-payment of rent, vandalism (pouring chemicals down the toilet - she's a freaking nutter). The last straw was that she messed up my lunch break by coming to my university to replace the instant HWH. Hell, she could have made an appointment... Besides, there was no need for this upgrade. I moved out that day - - - and the following day, she tried to keep 90% of my SD. There was a 800 THB fine by Immigration. HER FINE, not mine. But she deducted that etc. Absurd stuff like charging 400 THB for damage to a door by laying shirts on it. That door is over 10 years old and there is nothing wrong with it... But then, you gathered that this is all about grabbing money and not fairness. Thai friends suggested to walk away and let her keep the 2,000 THB. I went to the cops. There was a meeting and the result of round 1 are promising. I'll get 1,500 THB she must produce the electricity bills for my meter IF she cheated, I'll collect another 500 THB. (If she hasn't cheated, then she can keep the 500 THB and enjoy me lying in front of her, asking her forgiveness ) She tried to wriggleout by claiming that the electricity company would allow her toread all those 30 meters and then report ONE collective amount. . No way, Jose. Needed a translator. The cop likely enjoyed the fight. If she was packing heat, I would be dead by now. She hissed like a snake Then I stunned her by claiming the door. (>10 years old, with new doors retailing for1,600 THB). Her wanting to have her cake and eat it is not a novel concept. Round 2 will take placetomorrow. Let's see if she will produce the bills? Will be interesting tolearn if the cops will take note if a wealthy landlady goes on a petty crime spree. ... The new place is 500 THB cheaper and the SD here is half. YMMV, but I felt bloody minded and pig-headed about this "lady"
