    Unless they are hiding or not acknowledging themselves on the board, I think that's it. And after today...it will be minus me.

    Sad to hear that. So, you're leaving? Where to if I may ask? Still in Thailand?

Since then he has not responded to any phone calls and messages.

    Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any suggestions on how to deal with this situation? I wouldn't like him to do this at another school, and would like to get the books etc back.
    Yes, I am a Johnny Come Lately to this thread, but the situation is even worse in Cambo and 'Nam, where it's common for this to happen.

    If ever you find yourself working in either of those countries, it's not difficult to get more money and/or a promotion for being reliable.

    I'm not in Hat Yai, I used to live in Hat Yai. Will be down in Hat Yai next weekend.
    Are you actually reading this? Do you think I care?

    He is constantly broke, and drunk from sunrise to sunset and still manages to get jobs. He's been around for about 18 years. Now this is not from hear say since I used to go out on the piss with him quite often.

    That's why I think he must have some guardian angel and that he will be around forever.

    Re: New teacher leaves without warning

    The easy thing for schools is to offer and pay decent contract completion bonuses and to put new teachers on 3m probation subject to a reference. But of course with teacher shortages any twat with a white face will get a job..........

    ...only half, judging by her/his avatar...

    Regarding the more serious topic of 'leaving without warning...' ...as long as Thailand refuses to pay for real teachers, they will continue to get a crop of drunkards, sexpats, and deviants who will leave on the drop of a dime...

    Re: New teacher leaves without warning

    Agree with you 100% Nemo. My school is desperate for teachers at this time of the year, and any young, native speaker who walks through the door is employed. I'm not directly involved in the recruitment process, but often there seems to be no proper interview, and references aren't checked. They should realise by now that everone suffers in the long term.
