I gave your story a haha because of the way you finished -- not because of the frustrating situation you encountered.

 

Talk about a rock and a hard place! There's nothing right about just letting the little misguided delinquents dump their garbage in your drive, and you can't berate them appropriately without incurring the wrath of the wife. That's tough! It sounds like your mission was accomplished in the end, though, and they'll probably keep clear of you and your property line.  

Yes but i may point out  she was ruder to them in thai than i was but i still got the blame.

It was about 18 months ago

I do remember the day well and me and mrs p do laugh about it now

Neighbours still dont speak

I disagree. I find most Thai are very clean in their personal washing. 

I agree that they are generally personally clean.  Men however, do not wash their hands with soap, and barely was with water after using the toilet

We live in a new housing area and when we took possession of our house the builder warned us not to put our trash bin outside our gate on the soi because everyone else on the soi  will put their trash there. We leave the bin inside the gate/fence and have problems.

Better to collect it and dispose of it responsibly before it endS up in some endangered turtle’s stomach. Thais are generally pretty good at cleaning inside their houses but for some reason out in public they don’t seem to GAF.

Education, Education, Education, is there education in the villages and jungles?

Okay maybe government sponsored educational cartoons demonstrating how to clean up after themselves!

Simple answer NO

Villages schools provide a very basic education obviously complete with obligatory indoctrination

re litter outside our local school its horrendous the locals, adults and kids......they dont even notice

 

The so called elite, the teachers care even less

What is wrong with Thai people? Drive around the back roads of Pattaya and you find rubbish dumped at every isolated location. It is little wonder that Pattaya smells like an open sewer.
