Q: Feeling unappreciated on graduation day

So I've spent the past three years at an international school and we graduated our

first class today.  After the ceremony everyone goes out for a celebration but guess who? Me the only foreigner at the school. Pictures were taken with some of the students and their families but no invite to the  graduation celebration dinner. This was my third year at this school so I don't understand why no invite. I guess I'm feeling a little unappreciated and venting a little. I wonder why no invite.

your usefulness to the students has ended, and there is no need for them to ingratiate themselves with you anymore. 

 

it sucks, but the interest and 'caring' attitude many students express towards their FT's is by and large superficial and now there is no benefit for them to pay you any attention now.

You might have spent your free time with extra coaching or activities, beyond contracted responsibilities, but that means squat to people who will take take take if there are people with the good-will to give especially for free.

 

As far as these students are concerned, they probably think they owe you nothing.

 

I spot very quickly the students who are worth the extra time and effort, and are genuine people, but these are few and far between.

 

congratulations on successfully completing another year in China.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
