It's not your country! Go home!!!

Postby NorrinRadd » Wed, 04 Jul 2012 9:16 pm

Us - walking up the street where we live
She - walking her or her host family's dog
Dog - poos on the sidewalk in the same place as is every week, often a few times a week
I - suspect she won't be cleaning it
She - walks away not cleaning it
Me - "hey"
She - nothing, walking away, pretending not to hear
Me - "hey" "clean your mess"
The Mrs. - "hey - you have a responsibility to clean this"
She - This is not your country! Go home!!! - in a rather agitated and venomous voice

Classic.

By that time she was too far away and it was too hot to give chase.

Next time get out your phone and catch her in the act and upload it to stomp including the admonishment by her. Let'em have a taste of their own medicine.

I've taken to holding up my phone in the morning at oncoming cars on YCK road when crossing the street for those who invariably will literally run the red light at the cross walk. You ought to see some of 'em stand their cars on their front bumpers when they cotton to what I'm doing. :cool:

I do exactly the same thing to taxi drivers who are playing punk and refusing to stop. It has a similar effect.

I've always wondered when Stomp's encouragement of passive-aggressive behavior of the locals will be turned against them.

a former writer of the government PR newspaper wrote a whole article in yahoo bout stomp being a free for all. They don't bother to edit the stuff thats posted there. since shes a foreigner, all comments on the write up was ofcourse as expected anti-foreigner sentiments.

Hahahahaha! What a tw@t! I think I might have whipped out one of the baggies that I always seem to have on me, scooped up the doo and followed her home with it :-D Maybe that would work better in a neighbourhood back home where I could just leave it on their door step.

I did but a) by the time I had the camera ready she was too far away b) it was too dark anyway.

I did threaten her with a Stomp! posting, then thought about it afterwards - does that not make one a disciple of Big Brother?

So +1 to what nakatago posted.

What is this, I don't even... Ack! Since this is her country, shouldn't she be the one being responsible for its cleanliness?

ABSURD.

We found her.

She's a maid in our condo. The guards know of her, she's done the same thing to them and the dog on the condo grounds.

We actually found out her unit #. Am considering next steps.

Leave a steaming coiled up one on her doorstep with a birthday candle in it.
