It’s Better Than A Poke in the Eye With A Sharp Stick

warning: adult content – very violent & sexual language.

As a marketing maven for TEFL International I get to run a nifty little program called Tweetdeck. It lets me access and respond to other people’s tweets. I can type in the phrase “teach in Thailand”, and I will get all the tweets that contain that phrase for the past 2 hours – if the tweet is something like “I wish I could teach in Thailand”, I just type in our URL w/a brief invitation and send it to them.

I thought I would share, unedited, some of the tweets I’ve seen recently under the headings “I hate my job” and “I hate winter”.

The next time you want to complain about your life as an ESL teacher here in Thailand, just remember what these people tweeted so uninhibitedly! Imagine what their life must be like to make them tweet like this!
