I will not be near this place any longer than necessary, if there is ANY morsel of truth to what you are saying. This is an emergency. Just how many sickos are there in PZ?
Also, what does this say about Max's performance in the video? It adds to the fishiness of his story in the video, trying illogically to desperately sort of partially vaguely blame Teacher R for getting Bob fired. Maybe Max DID somehow find info online on Bob so max could take his place.
Dear Fellow Poster,
There is more than a morsel of truth to what I write. I have no reason to come here except to write what has really happened, as best as I can remember it, truly as best as I can recall these things. As hardened as I may seem to you, I am actually not hardened at all. I have been in China a goodly number of years; I have come across dozens of foreign teachers, and at least 5 - 6 FAO's.
Somehow, somehow, when an FT is a good teacher at PZ, he or she is a really good teacher. When, however, an FT is totally crazed at PZ, he or she is crazed beyond mental institution.
Somehow, somehow, I worked with good, caring, warm, decent FAO's, FAO Directors and the like. Karl, however, is not among them. He is the face of evil and deceipt. The Director FAO that Karl replaced was a cranky, easily-angered guy but he was at least decent, approachable and relatively honest. He simply burned out. The same for the FAO assistants. Shemerry was great but she ran away to Canada and when she came back, she had enough. The person before Shemerry is still in the College but has been assigned elsewhere. A really good person but also burned out. The FAO Assistant before Shemerry, Farr, was totally and perfectly incompetent. Perhaps it was his weight (350 lbs) but he came from the same village in Nei Mongu as Karl. So Peizheng is a sad story in the end.
There have been few decent Program A and Program B Directors. As a rule, the Program B directors have mostly all been nuts, whacky, drunks, etc., etc. D. was great but she ran away with the love of her life. She was also terribly scattered but otherwise she was a truly caring person. The longest-running Program A Director, B.C., was really good until she hit the bottle when PZ got to her and once the bottle was hit, it remained hit. Then things changed. She protected the Filipinos until the end and when Karl announced that the Filipinos had to go, ipso facto
, she quit.
And as for the Filipinos, I am still in contact with some of them. Some were cheated out of their last month's pay, the last part of the airfare, etc., overtime, the entire lot. Now where did that RMB 100,000 or so disappear? You tell me! Some like Babes were just pushed out in the middle of the term, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TERM. She was told to go to Manila, by Karl, to get a new visa, and when she go to Manila, guess what? She was fired. Is that scummy? I ask you -- is that scummy? And she was such a lovely lady.
When these things happened to Bob S., and to Bruce, the Canadian and his family, I was just crushed and mortified but it was in keeping with Karl Wang's policy of sleaze, to say the least.
When Daniel DeV. went to the bicycle sheds and trashed a good number of bicycles, and threw others in the river (that were fished out when the water level shrunk), when he beat up a simple little cashier at the Bu Bu Gao, and Karl absolutely blinked and then warned him that the police were coming, everyone was angry beyond angry. When Daniel DeV. was out on sick leave for three months after being beaten up by the pimp for non-payment, we all were revolted, just revolted. And this is the only time in all these years at the College that Paul's name became clouded, because, somehow, somehow, people were led to believe that he helped the crazed Daniel DeV. escape when the police were coming. True or not, I don't know but it was surely noised about and he was summoned to Karl for an explanation, even though it was KARL who called Daniel to warn him of the police! Is that insane or is that insane?
Yes, indeed somehow, somehow Max's performance on the video is indeed really trashy. Really, really trashy -- totally not believable and absolutely not sustainable. Karl KNEW from the day Bob arrived how old he was. It was Karl who hired him directly -- not Farr (the previous FAO). Poor Mark's vacant seat as director had not even been before Bob went after it and Bob announced that he was going get rid of all the trash. Those were his words, not mine. In the end, the trash got rid of him. And since you seem NOT to be believe me, and that is your 100% prerogative, here is the link that SOMEONE SOMEONE SOMEONE
forwarded to Karl which caused Bob's instant non-end-of-year demise with the resulting order to leave almost immediately (from Karl) : http://www.silverdaddies.com/view_profi ... ile=121551
. There you have that part of the story. Karl simply cannot be confronted to himself particularly when it is a white male foreigner of a certain age cohabiting with a Chinese male of a not-so-certain age. Karl hates to look in the mirror.
Oh, and then I forgot to mention what some teachers did do. To curry favor with Karl, they would go to his house in Huadu to give private, unpaid English lessons to his son, a senior middle school student at the time. I know of at least two teachers, now departed Peizheng, who did this. Real kiss a**.
There have been so, so many incidents like that. So many. As for the boy toy, it is you that has begged the issue this time. I believe for a fact that you know him and may even be on a very friendly basis with him.
And yes, there are lots and lots and lots of jobs in China at the present. It is not hard to find, truly not hard, with salaries higher than that of PZ and in more normal settings. And here I speak to the fact directly and that is all I will say on this particular issue.
