Can't divulge the whole particulars, but I have a new 'flyjin' story. My older 'flyjin' posts are here.
Well, most of the teachers who bailed on their classrooms were young enough to need the goodwill of the school for a future recommendation, and returning to a country where there just aren't any teaching jobs, eh? Their choice, but I would not dare ask after I'd left that way, even if I had done it during real radioactive activity in Tokyo. If it was worth it to bail, it's worth it to pay the price, in my book. One of these (let's say the fact he's a semi-literate 'juice head' fit his job description) not only bailed at the very last minute, posted pics of living it up on some island beaches, but also sabotaged his school documents when he was told he would not get the favourable recommendation he asked for. This all followed him trying to leave the children stuck at the school with the other teachers, so he could go get laid with whatever trash he had set aside for it.
Of course, according to the friend telling me this story, as confident as he was he'd get a favourable recommendation, he's as optimistic about another business plan he has. Wonder if that will pay him the five-million yen he made to live somewhere as interesting as Tokyo. Yeah, good luck, kid.
