We White folk can bang Jewish girls and just squirt up in there without fear of impregnating them. After all, we're not the same species. :eyeroll:
I think the Filo got you covered :grin:
How many "Filipino Association blah blah groups" are there in Thailand? Why isn't there just ONE? That's the way it is. Someone has a little dispute with another and they break off, start their own group. Kind of a tribal thing.
My advice -- assess the situation. How close are the Flips to the administration? Depending on how deep they've got their tongue in your boss' crack, you'd best play it safe, or move schools. The fact that it seems they get paid less however kinda makes it sound like they're not very liked in admin. But who knows?
There are some good Flips for sure, but I'm generally cautious when meeting new ones... although I could probably say the same for white backpackers from KSR.
And because I know my good colleagues are reading this, peace out. This ain't about you. Feel free to talk about the drunk stupid British or the arrogant asshole Americans (like the one posting) but you have to admit the nature of Filipinos is to use each other as stepping blocks to reach the top. Look at how it is back home. It's a sad state of affairs, one which if possible to change, can see the Philippines rising to it's former glory.
I came across this thread and lots of bashing from sweepingly-minded native-English-teacher-wannabe ignorants calling us flippers in general! Thanks to those who are not! I salute you! Umm…let us see who’s gonna flip out:
1- a Canadian wannabe teacher who decided to teach in Thailand coz what? Yeah, no more money for the “prosti” honey;
2- an Australian wannabe teacher who managed to sneak in to the teaching world because of what again? Yeah, no more repetitions here..just refer to no. 1.
3- an American wannabe teacher who by far had shown nothing but disgrace in the school he worked at and guess why? Because he hadn’t had a single knowledge about 2nd-language learners and had been constantly kicked out from every school he tried to scatter his shits around.
4- And then, let me be a sorta racist myself. British wannabe teachers are generally great! They respect, adore and cooperate to the respectable “flippers” (I hate this word and promise I will be coining terms for the bashers next time!) and never generalize. Plus, they used to turn out as one of the best TEFL teachers because they didn’t brag about owning the language. So, if you are a British basher here, you are not included to this praise, okey dokey?
So, who are you, basher? I am a Philippine teacher whom you didn’t exclude to your measly rant. If you are not more than me, I invite you to bring it on here. Let us see who is better, i.e.:
a- Have you successfully helped students in passing managerial level for TOEIC;
b- Have you had any students who passed TOEFL and IELTS score requirements in some UK and US universities;
c- Have you trained any students who won national speaking and spelling contests;
Simple questions for all the can-minded-English-native bashers here! There are more if you decide to bring it on…Flipper-bashing is good for dinner, I suppose -- and I make sure your words will come back to hit your very face. This “flipper” will surely flip you all out…Donkeys!
Just a note though…I admit I am kinda different than the others. All I am saying here is you need not generalize. There are lots of us (stop naming us flippers, please) who don’t whine, grief and kiss admin’s asses just to go forward. We are the ones who like to save the seemingly unsalvageable Filipino teachers’ situation here. We will never give up proving ourselves in the righteous ways, SO PLEASE DON’T GENERALIZE! That is all. And, if you are of a sound mind, you will stop using the f-word. It sounds so close to the f-word we all abhor once abbreviated. If you are a Canadian or Australian basher here, will you like me to coin this word for you: CREOLITIC NATIVE? I can start piecing out dreadful grammar from some bashers here. So, there!
It was a first-user miss. I was trying to thank some posters for their encouraging words and not saying thanks at the end of my post. So, no...not polite. :tongue:
BTW, how do I keep quotes while replying to them just like what you did, Thaitanium? Appreciate your help :)
Highlite the text you want to quote and a little blue quote box will appear...click that and the text will appear in the quik reply box below...
you're welcome sir...and God be with you...
1- Hold on to the good group coz, for sure, they hate what those whiners are doing;
2- Speak out to the management as well, if you think they are abusing your peace. In that way, I guarantee 100% that they will come into terms with reality. They are deserving to be called "flippers". These are the ones who are seemingly insecure because, one way or the other, they know that they lack something English. I am sorry to say that they really need to improve everything that concerns professionalism starting from scratch. That is, improving their English to start with;
Oh and so much more to say. I just don't like to add to the creases coz, most of the time, it consumes me...:):):)
^Ajarn Phillippine, whilst I admire your contribution and your efforts, I do have a question, are you drunk? I cannot make head nor tail of what you is bangin on aboot...
But, if you wish me to reply to the "...God be with you and the amen", here it is:
Halleluyah! (no pun intended)
Then, let us go back to the topic...
