Loans and retirement schemes are semi-doable.eligibility to applying for loans, buying land and home in your name, retirement schemes etc.
Buying land and a house ain't going to happen for any farangs, teaching or otherwise IMO!

Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
Does it mean we sit quiet and say nothing?
Moaning is one thing, moaning and expecting change because of it is another!
I want to be clear on this:
The Thai way to say "no" seems to be to say "yes" to everything, then ignore it, don't do anything and hope that no one calls you on it. "But you said 'yes'!"
Is this about right? Or is there something I'm missing?
Can do, but I prefer to opt out with an excuse. "Excuse me, I'm not feeling well." After awhile they'll get the message.Originally Posted by ajarnernest
Making yourself scarce can be another way of saying "no." Don't hang around the staffroom. Always have a folder or piece of paper in your hands as you walk around campus. Look busy.
Use a proxy to communicate, don't be direct.
Look busy, do nothing is the best strategy for English teachers working in LOS!
Mate it's like from one extreme to the other with you isn't it?
Nopes ken! CC said "Look busy". I just modified it to "Look busy, do nothing"

Consider yourself contract labor, not an employee. Don't think of the Thai's as your "boss", think of them as the ones paying your contract. They can break the contract and so can you, in reality without any notice. That leaves you with one option, so do it to the best of your ability...TEACH and convince the students they are learning something!...........Susan
