Petty knitpicking?  ...an unfurnished apartment, that remained unfurnished (the bed was provided, later)?

I'm... I'm not sure if you're aware of this,  but did you know that you can turn an unfurnished apartment into a furnished apartment by buying things and putting them in it?

When I moved into an unfurnished apartment like you're describing - no bed, table, chairs, desk, etc, I purchased those items. And then I used them. And my apartment was very comfortable, and no longer unfurnished.

Not sure if you are aware,  but good schools get hat stuff taken care off., or are supposed to....get with the program.

No contradictions. 

A good school will make sure an apartment is ready for their incoming staff member and not expect them to furnish it by his/her self.

If you don't do that for your staf..well, what does that say about you?

Basedcowboy- I'm... I'm not sure if you're aware of this,  but did you know that you can turn an unfurnished apartment into a furnished apartment by buying things and putting them in it?

When I moved into an unfurnished apartment like you're describing - no bed, table, chairs, desk, etc, I purchased those items. And then I used them. And my apartment was very comfortable, and no longer unfurnished.

I'm...I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the industry standard when an apartment is provided in the world of Korean ESL gigs is that the apartment at the very least comes with the basic furnishings, i.e. a bed. 

Basedcowboy, if your reaction to a school providing an empty apartment is to go and furnish it on your own you're the kind of sucker shady hakwans can only dream about.  Hey, did you, um...did you know that if a school short changes you on payday you can just transfer the amount in question from another account and voila, full pay cheque!
