14 Days ( The Dumbest article I have ever read in my life)

14 days left on this bullshit contract. I can't wait to leave this shitty country. Next week Ramadahn starts and I may or may not be able to find food during the day. They are holding my pay until the final week so they can have plenty of time to fuck up the computation.  I have added new pictures to my Tumblr page. I especially like the photos of their submerged vehicles. These derelict nutjobs are too busy praising and not working to build a sewer system so whenever it rains( and it rains a lot here) the streets flood and a good time is had by me watching adult men pull up their dresses as they attempt to cross the street.

The lifehacker article talks about a new motivational technique in which employees pretend to be receiving 300 dollars per hour to boost productivity. I'm sorry my imagination just isn't that good. My attitude is my work matches the pay I receive . If the employer is paying little I do as little as possible. If I like the job I go so far as to pretend that I'm working hard while doing for very little. Right now my students are in handout city because I stopped giving a fuck about teaching when the company screwed me out of a day of pay in February. So they come in I give them a reading comprehension worksheet that I may or may nor check at the end of the class. In the afternoon I show movies. It is very difficult to find movies that are completely sexless so I feel that I am working hard on that front.


  1. 1 of your best. It's weird, isn't it, how so many employers in engrishteachinglands think that if they treat their foreign employee like shit then they're going to produce work of an amazingly high standard.
    I've got one who takes any conversation no matter how polite and incredibly non controversial as a personal insult. The boss apparently thinks the best power game is to treat foreign employees like they're so below them they can't make one simple, positive comment.
    To the others who are already working there, their normalcy bias is in full swing so they can't imagine not working under somebody like this. The boss has had midnight runs before - wow I'm so surprised!
    We all have to handle this by a low key camapaign of passive aggressiveness. They don't want professional, pleasant staff - screw em,do not worry about the future of where you work or anything else to do with it. Do the minimum, look like its the maximum.

  2. I am with you longbeachboy, I am in the same englishteachingshitland in Poland. I don't understand why we don't get pay on the last day of work or few days later but have to wait for 2, even 3 weeks each month? the student paid the fuckers at the begining of the semester, sometimes even for the whole year !!!
