    • Guest smb by any other name!
      It must be pretty quiet in San Diego then? ย 
    • Guest Oh... the value must be...
      This site is BORING.
    • If you don't want to hear your neighbours above, below, left, right, behind or opposite you - then don't have neighbours above, below, left, right, behind or opposite you! That's easy!! ๐Ÿ˜ So go and live on top of a mountain - or on a desert island or something? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm not kidding... Last night - (or in the early hours of this morning, to be fair...)ย  Sitting on my balcony, still jetlagged at around 01:30 Hrs. Lights on, of course! Quietly minding my own business and studying one of my books... I dared to cough?!! (Well, it wasn't really anything more than just clearing my throat. To the best of my knowledge, I don't have TB?) Oh, and I am not sure but it is not entirely impossible, by the way, that I might have committed the ultimate crime of the century, by accidentally dragging my chair? Just a tiny little bit? If I did - Sorry! It wasn't intentional. I am usually pretty quiet at that time of night. And I wasn't drunk. I didn't even have a single beer in the fridge. And if I did, in fact, scrape the chair around at all, I wasn't even aware that I had done so. OK? No. I'm pretty sure it was clearing my throat that was the final straw for my poor old long-suffering neighbours; a full 20, maybe 30 metres away from my balcony. Oh, you should have seen the commotion! On came their lights. The occupants - or at least, some of them - stood at their window gabbling away in Thai. Had they realised that I can get by quite nicely in the local lingo, they could have easily cursed me in their own language! But they didn't. (I wonder what would have happened if I had been a local? Probably, nothing at all...) Anyway; so instead of saying anything to me directly, they just closed their curtains again. Then, out of sight, all I could hear was a very loud: "Hoy!! ๐Ÿ˜•Well, sorry that I breathed then! ...I just finished the passage that I was working on, in my book; quietly went inside, and put the balcony light out... Now, I can understand one of my other neighbours not liking the smell of my cigars - so I don't smoke them on my own balcony anymore. (It helps that I can't afford the damn things at the moment, anyway...) But now, I am not even allowed to sit outside and get some fresh air after dark?ย  Thailand - the "Land of Smiles!" ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
    • Well... That was back in 2005, when I started this topic!!! ...And how things have moved on now!! In 2018, search engines actually work - and now we just take them for granted!!
