So, you have about a third as much experience of living in Poland as him and no experience at all of living in the country he moved from or in providing for a family, but you still decided to berate him about the effort that he is making to provide for his family. How delightful of you.

But once the Westerner says to a girl that they are only English teachers, they will realize how lowly regarded they are. The girl will respond with "what else do you do besides teaching?"
Strangely, in nearly two decades here, not even one woman has said that to me. Perhaps it's you rather than the profession?
