By Depressed - Sudan

Great deal

Today, I arrived in Africa to start my new job. I agreed to come to a city with little to no electricity, and poor water for triple the money I was making in Canada. I just realized my boss and I negotiated in two completely different currencies, and I'm now making half of what I used to. FML

Should have read your contract!

Nobody moves continents without a contract of employment and that must have had your pay and the currency in it.

Better get re-negotiating!

You..... took a job... in Sudan... expecting to make 3 times your previous wage? Son of a Bitch!

I bet you own your own personal bridge to nowhere, prime swamp land in Canada, 1000' of white sand beach in Tennessee, and shit outside of your own dumpster.

I am guessing you are a prime candidate to win a 2011 Darwin Award. Congratulations!!

It may seem bad now, but people in poor countries are just as happy as they are in rich countries (if not happier) because they are less materialistic.

Your boss must not have thought very highly of your intelligence if he started a "negotiation" at half of your current salary [because he obviously knew the currency].

the boss would not know what OP was making, only a fool would tell a prospective employer what they are making now..... on second thought OP has demonstrated being a fool so maybe they did tell the new boss what they were making.

The way the FML is worded it sounds more like his "new job" is with the same company. . .Only an idiot would negotiate with someone from another country and assume they were being paid in their home currency.
