    Received a Job Offer

    Post  Psioncy on Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:39 am

    I got a fantastic job offer.  I don't know if I can pass it up.

    The guy is american, and he's got all kinds of problems with chinese bullshitting him.

    Over multi-milllion dollar pieces of machinery.

    They are tossing around middle-class western salary figures at me.  How can I say "no"?

    I stayed at the Hilton last night. It's boring.

    But, the food is fantastic. I got like three plates of breakfast.

    Bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, butter. Then I poured ranch dressing over all of it.

    OMG it was like HEAVEN!

    Then I got offered lunch, but I refused.  I was too full from breakfast.

    Just drank coffee.  For dinner I went to T3 and had Burger King.

    Life is weird.

    You don't know what you are working for.

    You just work and work and work.

    It's all lie.

    Me? I like pussy.

    Even this new boss of me, he can't imagine the amount of pussy I have had.

    He has money, talks about what airplane he wants to buy, but still doesn't know the pussy.

    Ok, i'm down with this job.

    Money, it's just numbers.

    PUSSY: it's just numbers...

    But those are the best numbers!

    Money ain't shit.

    bewares of snakes in the grass.

    beware of Neptunian smokes and mirrors and deception and half-truths and promises that were never meant to be kept.

    but if it's legit, yeah then go for it.

    Well this is not a chinese company, so I think I can safely cut the bullshit factor by a factor of 50.

    And I'm well suited to calling chinese on their bullshit. It's just matter of monitoring shit, by on site-inspection, and reporting it back.

    As well as any other shennigans I think they may be up to.

    I've been here over 12 years and have a PHD in chinese bullshit.

    And I'll be getting paid to BE HONEST. Usually that works against me.

    It'll be a big change, but for the money, fuck it. I stopped wearing business suits years ago, but I'll have to get some tailored. A fancy watch, iPhone, whatever to play the part. Chinese really respond to that for some reason.

    Shaving every day instead of twice a week. Cologne in place of 8 kuai xiangshui.

    I'll need to hire an assistant. Start a consulting company to make sure visas and everything are legit.

    Make four times my current salary, plus have an expense account and tons of time off. Yeah, it's too good to pass up.

    A few years of that and I'll be flush enough to build my cabins, greenhouse, windmill, the works.

    I almost got a job in a factory once doing Quality Control.

    It was a Western company.

    And the factories here would ship out a lot of damaged goods.

    And they didn't trust locals, so they needed a laowai to check things here.

    But it fell through.

    Could have been making a western salary these last few years.

    Well this isn't a done deal. But it looks pretty solid, at least as much as one can hope for in this day and age of bullshit.

    I don't know how I'd deal with having that much money. Ideally I'd like to save it up for my land.

    Cuz that's my retirement right there.

    Then when I'm older I'll have a mostly self-sustaining homestead to live comfortably in dirt cheap.

    Or put up a bunch of cabins, rent them out, and live off that income in my retirement.

    Maybe I'll make enough money to get my ex-GF back.

    I know what that says about her, and yeah, she's pure evil.

    I'd still like to get her back nonetheless.

    Just accept her for who she is, pure fkn unadulterated EVIL, and try to work with it somehow.

    Cuz it's a *cute* evil, oh my gosh. Soooooo cute.
