1) ”Such kind of ... “ is a typical error found among Chinese learners of English.
We say "such a setback", or "this/that kind of setbacks", but never "such kind of setback". Why? Because "such" = this/that kind of. Period.

2) A setback could be "self-sought" (自找的), fine, but cannot be "self-seeking", which has a very different meaning an English professor ought to know.

A self-sought trouble indeed. Too bad!

看样子大使没有好好折腾一下字典

当大使要听话嘛!不是说要“不折腾”吗?那就什么都别折腾!

说不定哪一天,人家升了,当了驻美大使,那你回国的签证可就。。。

签证不归大使管,搞定领事就行了。

外行了吧,领事归谁管啊?

理论上有大小,可是根本不在同一个城市,管得了吗?
