Because that's what you are, anon, you are the cancer of this forum and even your wife can see that.

 

Got your salary from last week BTW?

Why not ask her why she calls you that? Communication is an integral part of marriage; it won't work without it.

 

My wife calls me a "dirty foreigner," "bastard," "motherfucker," etc., but she says it to my face. We just joke around like that all the time. Is your wife joking?

My wife calls me"hey". I call her "psst".

 

It's just pet names. Madame Mao called her husband Chairman. How weird is that ?

Adolf called his dad "Uncle". Even wierder.

Don't worry about it, your wife's pet name for you does not qualify you as a potential "despot".

I will add: many Chinese refer to their own children/nieces/nephews as, "Little devil," etc. It can be used affectionately. Not that I agree with it - my wife and I usually try to leave the "devil" out of our slurs/insults to each other.

What does she actually say? Bai Ermo? Mogui? or an affectionate Gweilo as my wife's mother calls me?

It's normal. My girlfriend often affectionately calls me "Puk Gaai" (Cantonese for prick) and I reply in kind by calling her a "Pendejo" (Spanish for fool). It's somewhat effective, if we're in a crowded place and I need to find her.. if I yell out her English name, it's unlikely she will hear me. However, when I say "Hey! Pendejo! Where are you?!" she hears me. The same for her. Though I also teach her a lot of good German profanity.

Well calling a boyfriend or husband devil in Chinese does not necessarilly present a negative thing. Just contrary. It can be more 'the play word'.
But I assume that this cannot be your only problem when you cannot get your explanation from your partner or if your partner rejects to stop calling you so despite of the fact it irritates you.
Are you seriously asking such a question on the Internet forum?

A:My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working illegally, it would be them that suffer should you report the school. Wouldn't it be better to have a quiet word wqith the teachers, find out there situation, and help them out? There are many reasons people find themselves working illegally. Some intentional, some not. The non-intentional ones have been tricked and are the victims. Help them find a way to get legal employment.If you are working without Z-Visa, Working Residence Permit, and Foreigners Work Permit for the job and location, you don't have an enforcable contract.. You may be lucky in having an employer who does exactly what they promised in the contract, but why take the risk?Without an enforcable contract Chinese Employment Laws don't protect you. Get legal if you can, and if you can't know the risks. We shouldn't do anymore than try to give meaningful advice - as the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water..."Now, on the Native/Non-Native Issue. Yeah, it's shitty. There are many, many, many great ESL teachers who are non-natives, including Chinese teachers. Hell, I know enough great Local Teachers who are wonderful with their students and whose English is more than adequate to teach it. But clients don't pay the equivelant. This is market driven, clients pay premium for Foreign Teachers That's the reality and why many training centres scam both the teachers and the clients. Caveat Emptor. Reporting the schools will just get some teachers in trouble.Sure, some teachers have eyes wide open and know that they are running the risk. Not my problem, their choice is their problem. If schools employing illegals bother you, it's simple. Don't work for those schools. Don't work for those employers. It will eventually be non-cost effective for them to hire illegally because they'll have to pay too much for those that want to run the risk. Market driven economics 101. So, in conclusion, keep yourself legal and yourself safe, help those that want or need your help, and keep in your lane regarding 'illegals'. Because if you're fully legal, China is the mollusc of your choice. -- Azriaphale760493
