Who needs Soap Operas when you have the Consular Section
An e-mail today from one of the staff. I've changed the names, not for any privacy sake, but so that the story is more understandable to a Western audience. Okay, maybe for privacy.

Subject: An affair
A woman, Jane, called and reported that Ms. Susie, dob: unknown, residing at Ban St Louis, Missouri district, Vientiane, will probably apply for a visitor visa tomorrow or within this month and next month. Jane claimed that the Susie is a bad woman because Susie has had affairs with Jane's husband, Dick. Ms. Susie has been informed for many times to stop such a relationship with Janes's husband but Susie does not.
The point now is that Jane will not allow this Susie to receive a visa because Susie must resolve the problem with her husband first.
I thanked Jane for her information and I asked her that she can come here to report if she wants.
My question is, if Susie is sleeping with Dick, who is Jane's husband, and Jane is mad about it, why would Jane want to keep Susie from going to the United States? I would think that could help solve Jane's problems.
