Bothered

Something is bothering me.  I read the blog of an ex-pat woman living in Saudi Arabia on a regular basis.  However, her attitude that she is better than Saudi women is really getting old.  She also has no respect for the laws there, and refuses to cover her hair.  Do I agree with the Saudi laws?  No.  But that doesn't mean you can just do what you want and not follow the law, then get irate if the religious police stop you.  When you are in a foreign country you have to follow their laws, whether you agree with them or not.  Also, because you have a college education that doesn't make you better than Saudis that don't.  When people try and tell her this, she just makes fun of them in her blog entries.  I swear, I have no idea why I keep reading it.
