Don't aim for a higher salary if you speak "English Kubeta"

The Dalai Lama once said, "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them." I'm sure everyone will agree. If someone is "giving" help yet along with it are not so good words, does that fall under the help category? Perhaps... probably... maybe...

A Filipino posted a job for our kababayans via Facebook. Good, right? But here's the catch, you'll have to look past the ad containing below the belt words or with degrading tone under it. If you can do it there's a chance you'll get the job.

The guy who posted the ad made mention that the salary was just 15k, too low for those who have higher education like master's degree or whatnot. He also encouraged applicants not to be choosy. "Others are aiming for a 20k salary yet they speak "ENGLISH KUBETA?," he added.

Facebook users didn't like what they saw. Minutes later, his post was flooded with comments. 

Yet he never backed down.

And the comments continued.

I believe the guy's real intention was to have a funny and catchy ad. However, it didn't go as planned. Things backfired.
