Q: Why are the delivery guys trying to break my door?

I ordered some food from an online grocery store for expats and the delivery guy was knocking on the door so hard that I got scared. He was still knocking on the door while I was trying to open it. I try to be polite but at that moment I almost lost it. Have you ever got mad at the delivery guys for knocking on the door too hard?

I never realized there was polite way and an obnoxious way to knock on a door until I came to China. Just never had any reason to think about it before.

Yes, sometimes they are just stupid. It gets me angry when they keep pressing the door bell constantly even when I tell them I am coming.

Install a door bell and paste this print in big bold letters under the door bell switch -

门铃 - 请按一次

 "Door bell - please press only once.""

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
