If that's the case I suffered burnout 6 years ago...but I'm still content to enter a classroom...that doesn't really jibe now does it...
It's not always the case that when someone recognizes shit as shit that he's a pessimist or cynic or burned out...but it is usually the perspective of those who tend to view shit as sunshine...simply because anything else would burst their bubble...

It wouldn't really be a bad thing if Nana Plaza was just swallowed by into the ground. It's not as if it has any redeeming features.
Nuts In A Blender
^ Less than a shopping mall that could replace it would.
For every product that a shopping mall sells, it has to buy as new from someone else first. It can only make a bit of profit off each product once.
Every "product" that is sold at Nana is basically used and is recycled over and over and over. The same product is sold many times over. Tons of profit in that type of business.

They're both shopping malls...it's just as NokYai says...one has a superior business model that garners substantially more profit...
All the better for the Thai economy as a whole...
If it was their strong point they would be bankers instead of hookers. Wouldn't make much difference though they both would screw you.
so has there been any kind of final analysis as to why people choose to do Tefl in Thailand?
I have no reservations about giving my reasons.
