After months of searching without luck,due to my age, I finally got a job 3 hours out of Bangkok.
Went to work last Wednesday and noticed that the 2 other farang teachers weren't in.
Taught my first 2 classes and was then informed: "Didn't anybody tell you?"
Your agency's contract has been cancelled as they were unable to supply teachers.
Not to worry she said, the school will pay you for the days you worked. Still waiting for that.
Back to searching.
I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.
Wow. Sorry, bro. That sucks.
Since you have a contract with your agency, they can just send you to another school, right?
^ What did the agency say?
Just curious; how old are you?
That sucks, good luck.

Yes the agency phoned yesterday and offered another school.
I hadn't signed a contract at that time.
Okay, so the agency has enough clients to place you elsewhere. I was crossing my fingers that they wouldn't just put you out in the cold. Good luck at your new assignment!
I don't mean to be mean, but why don't you have enough savings to retire at 64?

If I can't walk my class; every row, every student, for the whole class, then I couldn't do my job as it needed to be done.
The OP may feel his abilities are important and he actually cares about his profession.
64 years young; go for it.

There are other options besides teaching and drinking. Still, I take the point--many do keep teaching for the love of it.
