When I started working in a certain non-education-related industry in Taiwan, I had to provide a letter from my former employer, addressed to the relavent Ministry, stating that I had worked at least 3 years in that industry.
No experience? No problem! I drafted a letter from my “boss”, Mr. George Castanza, providing the needed information. Under the letterhead of Vandelay Industries. This letter is now on file in the bowels of the Ministry in question. Guess they don’t watch Seinfeld.
Then there’s the legend of the English teacher who gave his adult student, an arrogant young businessman, the English name of Anus. Anus Chang. The guy had business cards printed up and applied for a credit card under this name.
What mean or whimsical things have YOU done to unsuspecting locals?
