An apartment owner in Buriram has shared her experience with a local teacher in Sisaket province. The owner didn’t know other methods in which to make the teacher contact her back to help reimburse her for the damage of the trashed room. The issue began when the teacher owned 2 months of rent, at 3,500 THB per month, the total rent owned was 7,000 THB.
Sanook news reported that the apartment is named Kwanmuang Sri located in the Sisaket city. Punatad, the caretaker of the apartment stated that the female teacher signed a contract before moving in to live in the apartment, so there was an agreement made. Then signs started to show when she never paid the rent for 2 full months. Punatad tried to contact the teacher but she never answered her phone.
Finally, on the 11th of this month, the caretaker had no choice but to enter the teacher’s room in hopes to ask her about the rent owned. Punatad knocked on the door several times but nobody answered. He decided to use the spare key to enter the room and was extremely shocked to the mess in front of him.
The room was absolutely trashed and all the furniture was destroyed. The glass screen on the TV was broken, trash was all over the room, and the furniture was in extreme condition like it had been used for at least 20 years, not 2 months.
The bed was ripped apart by what appeared to be knife marks, the pillow stuffing was scattered all across the room, the dishes were placed inside the toilet, the fridge was left open, the room stunk like rotting fish, and the AC was left on for 10 days straight.
Punatad tried to contact the teacher again but it ended up with silence as usual. He then decided to file a report with the Sisaket police. Luckily, the rent contract is legally binding and holds all necessary personal information of the teacher.
Trashed rooms are not unusual, but the fact that it was a public school teacher who caused such damage is surprising as they are the ones that have to be strict in teaching children the importance of being clean and respectful to the building owner.
Over 30,000 THB of damage was caused to the room. The police stated that if the teacher does not come to negotiate with Punatad they will have to go to her workplace to search for her. There is no clear reason to why the room was in such a terrible condition but it is estimated that the reason might have to do with relationship issues in the teacher’s life.
