We just got 14 people arrive here on their way to Laos to do voluntary work.Admirable but what their going to do is dig irrigation ditches! Surely the people of Laos can dig their own.I can understand if someone has a particular skill to offer but surely this is ridiculous.what do other Travelfishers think?
I can hear myself right now:
"Put some back into it Goddamnit! What a bunch of lazy sonsabitches you are. You're movin' like pond water!"
"But it's hot, and we're just volunteers"
"Always an excuse. Let's move it. I want to be done before Christmas."
It is a variation of this that I think I am no longer employed at the local temple teaching the novice monks English (English now being removed from the cariculum).
