My organization got defunded, my hospital basically asked me to just give them money for gas but otherwise don't need me, and all my secondary projects have fallen apart. FMPCL.

A teacher asks if I can help him download pictures of his classes he has taken on his phone. Easy enough right? Well...instead of pictures of students I get an eye full of porn. Great first week at school :)

Our "village" in Belize had no clue what the Peace Corps was when they said they would take volunteers, so once they figured out that no money came with us they didn't see any point in working with us. Our town preferred getting free stuff from Europe tha

The American Peace Corps staf here shamelessly play favorites, no matter how hard you work for your community or how many successful projects you have completed.

Was without permission in a major city working on a computer donation for my school, when I got mugged by two guys and subsequently stabbed in the chest, fighting them off. No bullshit. Glad they got my phone with absolutely zero dollars in it though.

Experienced a milky discharge from my nipple (I'm a guy). Called the PCMO: "I think that's normal!"

All the guys spend their time at the tourist spots banging backpacker chicks and drinking free drinks from american tourists. The girls deal with threats of rape on a daily basis. Peace Corps Admin. could care less.

Beautiful country, generous, welcoming people, counterparts that want to work with me, and students who make me feel like I'm making a difference. What's not to like?

Was walking down the street when a kuya (older male) on a motorbike drove by me, groped my boob, and sped away.

Got accepted to "help out" with a camp. Got free food. The equivalent of a months salary for 3 days of "work". A nice hotel room to myself with hot water. And hot women to stare at. #poshcorps #bitches

Been depressed for about a couple months now. I haven't been in to the office consistently for months, because my CP has been a bitch to me from the start of service. For instance, she doesn't even acknowledge my presence, even when I say hello to her.

During my whole of service I barely had any intestinal problems unlike many of my fellow volunteers. I just returned home to the states and I shit 6 times a day and almost joined the club.....twice.....

Today, after an intense struggle of hitchhiking with my pissed off cat to the next village because "they definitely have shots", I returned covered in poop and pee, and with an unvaccinated cat. You win again, Africa.
