136 days left on this bullshit contract
So I'm chilling at my home in Taiwan and I get an email from my co-teacher that says you have to move out of company housing in that shitty hotel. This is a problem because I was told specifically that I had to stay in the shitty hotel and because of that I never made arrangements for a new place to live. I fly back to Saudi and my boss says don't worry you'll have a month to look for something new. 3 days later I'm told that month has been shortened to 3 days and my fat fuck boss decides that to add an additional layer of difficulty we all have to move within 5 blocks of him. So here I am in this shit country with less than rudimentary Arabic looking for a place. Extra problem. This is a tourist town (because Arabs are dumb) so most places only want to rent for 3 months so they can jack the rent during high season.
We get up on Wednesday( the day before we are scheduled to move out to look for apartments because the deal we made on Tuesday with the Sudanese apartment manager for reasonably nice apartments was voided by the Saudi owner who was looking to price gouge the Americans) and this place is a horror scene. We were openly speculating on the number and nature of the murders committed in this space. The next space was just as dirty and dark so I didn't take any pics.
My employer gave me 4,000 dollars to live in this luxury but at this point I'll just keep what's left over from the deposit and eat at restaurants rather than cook. My dumb ass co-workers are busy buying beds and tv's and shit but there is no way I would ever do business with these people again so I'll just sleep on a mat and download movies from the internet.
