We get old as the clock ticks away. Some of you are more or less fortunate or successful than myself. I am on a disability pension and am considering teaching in China for six months to a year, but I do not want to relinquish my disability pension, the pension covers my rental where I live. I would like to take the risk by staying on it while working in China. Realistically the money earned in China is very low, if I decided to cancel my pension I would not be able to live adequately in China, and pay my rent and utilities while I am absent. I am curious to know if any of you older risk takers have done what I am considering, or are doing it. I know what the consequences are if Centrelink discover I have been away for more than the decreed six week period permitted for absence. If any of you reading this are in a position to explain bare facts and experiences that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello moral police officer. So you have three professional qualifications? You are a psychologist, a Centrelink employee and an educator. You have a Masters in philosophy too. You must be highly esteemed in your community.
Last message you left on another thread you implied, through your typically self-righteous knowledge of social and racial relations, you are a psychologist.

You are incorrect in assuming I am trying to take advantage or abusing welfare. The salaries are so low in Asia they would barely cover my rent and utilities in Australia, if I got off the disability pension. Would you like me to tell you my disabilities? I have two, but I still have my eyesight. I am a qualified teacher of ESL but I can't find a job in Australia. The salaries of a full time teacher in Asia are the equivalent to welfare payments.

If you did your maths, which I have done already, there is no way I could live in Asia with their local salary. I would be saving very little. The point of it all is not to save money, it's to have a break from 'Straya'.

What part of Australia do you live in? And why are you assuming I am trying to cheat the system? Self righteous Anglo-Saxon Dr of epistemology.

You want to take a break away from 'straya while illegally defrauding its welfare system.

Sounds to me like you're a little conflicted there.

And why do I think you're attempting to defraud the system? Because you say precisely that in your first post.

What a stunning assumption. I think you may have your own issues with racism.

So now you are a moral police officer, go ahead and contact a current affairs. You sound very bored with your life and have nothing better to do than lecture people on proprieties. Me conflicted? Maybe you are, I don't feel conflicted, pray tell me how I am conflicted, Mr Psychologist.
Now I am attempting to defraud the system! I have not committed anything illegal yet, it is all theory. I have my issues with racism? Are you me? Since when did you become me to know me better than you? I would be interested in meeting the stunning assumption you talk of, she must be beautiful!
