Just plain abuse

I live in Rayong and for the previous two years I have worked at a Thai school.

Has this ever happened to you? I did my job in a caring, diligent manner the whole time I was there. I showed respect to everyone from school directors on down. The department director who hired me was let go between my first and second year and she was replaced by a totally incompetent loser who insisted on bringing everyone down to her level. Still, I persisted in maintaining a professional attitude.

Until one day , at assembly, I was approached by the school director who immediately adopted a belittling tone. He made it quite clear he didn't like me, (although we never spoke) and from that day on my life in Rayong has been one of harassment and intimidation. I mean, these guys are ruthless. I honestly fear for my safety even though I've never done anything to anyone.

What goes guys? These school officials have never openly threatened me but they have made it clear to everyone that they don't like me and they're out to get me. No one deserves this.
