    Culture Shock !!!

    This story is about a girl who lived in Taiwan, but it still applies to Thailand and everywhere else. I think we've all met a version of Lindsey Craig at some point in our lives

    She couldn't even tolerate a different province FFS!!!...and she is a Masters grad??? OMFG just shows that an education in the wrong hands is worthless...


    The saddest part of this whole situation is that she has millions of people to keep her company, She's not a minority in her views...

    An education guarantees nothing.

    Bills to pay and an academic degree are not guarantees?

    She was naive, stupid and ignorant. Then she has the incredible lack of insight to say the experience has made her stronger. Yeah, the last time I ran away from something and cried like a baby about it in someone's office I also realized the experience had made me stronger.
