[quote=“Huang Guang Chen”][quote]THIS SAT XPAT RAGGAE PARTY ON THE LAKE
Just a reminder that this Saturday Xpat will be throwing another
killer bash to celebrate the release of the 3rd issue: POP. Come out to
the Lake Tavern in Kaohsiung starting at sunset and help us kick off our
best issue yet with:[/quote]
Nothing to do with this unfortunately worded ad was it?
Agree with Chewy. By the bye, I’m sure all my (non-teaching, admittedly) jobs had some measure of death insurance. Has someone checked out what the family is entitled to? If she was hit by a car, even though she sounds as though she was pissed, the driver too might be liable, or at least his/her insurance. Sounds to me like they need some assistance other than just money.
I know a friend in Taichuing had to deal with this when a young American co-worker was killed. He negotiated with the school, insurance and so on to get her body home.
Would these insurance schemes still cover a person if they were drinking and driving?Seriously, I can’t fathom why someone who has been drinking wouldn’t pay 120NT and take a taxi ride home. Aren’t teachers supposed to make good money in Taiwan relatively speaking? If she could afford to drink, why didn’t she just take a taxi home? :fume:
Canadian Maritimers are always stereotyped as drinking rum and pushing cod around the floor with their noses. It is sad that they aren’t overcoming this stereotype when they are overseas by acting more responsibly.
I’m sad for the families of this girl, but drinking and driving (especially in a country where taxis are bloody cheap–not like in Japan :s) puts everybodies life at risk.
