Hello and Sawasdee khrap, I almost forgot my 90 day Alien thingy and went to see the local Immigration this afternoon, in my eyes the coolest bunch of guys who're really so nice that it's impossible to describe it with only a few words.... But there's a new woman I've never seen and she basically jumped on me and started her questioning. "Please let me call my lawyer" first, were my honest thoughts, but then not necessary. The last time when I did my 90 day thingy, I left the office after only 2 minutes, no "special questions" involved but this time my friend was busy and I had to go the "normal way " with the "extraordinary" one who looked like a bear hunter to me. "Name of mom and dad? " was how it all started. I said that they both passed away a long time ago, but I had to write down their names. A little bit misspelled, but that's normal when you're a teacher here. So many bs questions that I almost started to throw up. She seems to be a real hardliner and not liked by the whole other staff. Next questions were about my online activities, Facebook, my e-mail address(es) YouTube, we-chat and all that other stuff. I said that I don't waste my valuable time on the internet and prefer to hang out with family and friends. "Your bank account(s) here, where?" I said that I always get my money in Tang Soth, (cash) and don't need such a thing. Car, motorbike, house? Mai Mee. I told her that the car would be my wife's car, but she insisted to have the details, license plate, when it was built, model, etc...that was also the time when she started to really annoy me. I gave her completely different details, the only thing that was true were the 4 digits of my license plate. She wrote down registered in Sisaket, but that's not really true. And also my own mistake... Then the question who my foreign friends here would be? Why would I even mention anybody's name? So I said that I do not have any foreign friends, and only love to hang out with my Thai TP friends, but another Immigration officer jumped in and said that I'd be a good friend of an American with the name Seth who's teaching at a local school for a long time. We were colleagues for quite a few years. She wanted to have details about him and my busy Immigr. friend helped me out and said: " No, it's not W.....ia..s, ( the other guy was trying to remember his last name) but my friend then said that his last name would be "Americano" and the clerk finally wrote down "Seth Americano." Lol. . The way my friend from the Immigration looked at me and the signs she gave me with her eyes were pretty clear. Do not tell them the truth, she also knows my American friend, helped him out quite a few times and why would she even help me to not mention his last name on the form that was actually for me? I've got the feeling that this is a George Orwell type one and once they've got your e-mail, friends' names, etc..they'll use their technology from the FBI, but also the stuff they've got from the German BKA and create a nice data base about each and every foreigner who's living here. I finally left the office after 23 minutes and grabbed a few small Leos and corrected a lot of student books. I think we should be careful what information we give to them, even when we've got nothing to hide. It reminds me of the"Reichskristallnacht" many moons ago in a country far far away. Stay safe.
