Things I have endured over the last week.

CT: Matahari, we need to move your 6 open classes to next week. Please give us lesson plans today.
ME: Okay, I will do 3 today and 3 tomorrow.
CT : No, today.
ME: I have classes all day.
CT : Yes, today

CT: Matahari teacher we will clean on Friday for open classes.
ME: When will we clean because I have 8 classes on a Friday remember, so only time is lunchtime.
CT: Yes, you can clean lunchtime.
ME: But I need to eat at lunchtime.
CT: No, we clean lunchtime, I also have classes.
ME: Yes, but you only have 3 classes.
CT: *puts in earbuds*

Tonight I will drink wine. ALL the wine.


Can you tell your coT it's impossible? If your coT tries to argue, keep interjecting IMPOSSIBLE? Yikes.

I am using this tactic!!!! Hoping that it will work.

- NEIS is a hot piece of sh*t.

- It's picture day and the only indication I got was a message sent to my computer yesterday at 16:48.

End of rant.

You... you got notified about picture day? Before picture day?

Truly, the fates smile upon you, sir.

Also, what's wrong with NEIS? I mean, it's clunky, but once you learn how to use it, it's pretty quick and simple.
Yeah it kinda seems like an issue of your coworkers not notifying you sooner, but I can't see how neis is to blame.

Pretty sure NEIS and finding out about photo day are separate things. But, finding out a day before photo day is fine. I mean, how long do you need to prepare for photo day?

Check the time; the message was sent after she left for home. I'm sure prior messages were sent far in advance, but in Korean. Sorry nobody filled you in~

Oh, yikes. Now I feel like a jerk.

But yeah, to be fair, I'm pretty chill about picture day, anyways, or I'd have lost my mind. I've literally only been informed of picture day ahead of time once. Ever.

As someone who used to do interface design things, I would love to take a copy of neis. Because it's basically exactly how you shouldn't design an interface.

Every one who designed neis is a stupid idiot and shouldn't be allowed around computers. A second year php programmer at uni could do better, and I know many high school students who could probably do better as well.

Minor rant, but... today, as I was standing at the front of the class teaching, my CT decided that would be perfect time to stand right in front of me and use an electric pencil sharpener. Because, you know, she couldn't wait a whole 30 seconds until I was finished right? It had to be IMMEDIATELY. It's not like the students even needed a pencil right then and there either. It was pretty loud so I stopped talking while she was doing her thing, HOPING she would realize she's interrupting. But no...she kept on going. :undecided:

I am taking an online university course. It was supposed to cost $280. I check my account and I have $1400 outstanding. I swear, to work at a university you should have at least graduated elementary school.

Yes. NEIS is an utter abomination. Once you put something in the system, you can't edit it! Better hope you ticked every box and added every staff member name that's required, because miss one and you're going to be deleting that entry and putting it all back in from scratch. Then there's the pop-ups, electronic certificates, lists of names you can click on that it's entirely not clear you can click on and more pop-ups. There aren't even clear "OK" and "CANCEL" buttons when you're putting something in! Is it too much to ask for a simple 확인 and 취소 in an intuitive location?

Hey Facebook and Google! I realise I'm in Korea, but all of my accounts are registered in English, you thick dunces. So when I'm using your sites, WHY DO YOU SUDDENLY SHOW EVERYTHING IN KOREAN, A LANGUAGE I BARELY UNDERSTAND?
Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it.

^Yes. I find it annoying that even though I specifically type "google.com" it automatically switches to "google.co.kr." And then after I search for something (having typed in English), it asks me if I want the search results in English.

This is why I use google.co.uk. I don't get redirected or any of that bullshit.

Ahh, a day in the life for me as well. Sometimes if they are feeling benevolent, they land on the top of my monitor in pairs or threes and just watch me for ten minutes at a time.  I've tried killing them but what's the point when there are no screens on the open windows in the teachers' room.

Add /ncr (no country redirect) to Google.com to not get redirected to the Korean site. I thought everyone in Korea knew this by now?

"Almost Korean hate Japan."

"Almost Koreans love spicy food."

"Almost Korean women just want to be married and don't want a job."


Usually I don't care about people making English mistakes unless I'm in class. The GRAND OPEN signs everywhere don't bother me and as long as I can understand the meaning of something, I am thankful for the shitty English everywhere.

However, this mistake makes me cringe every time I hear it, which is OFTEN. The thing is, I don't even correct them because the sentences they start with "almost" are usually annoying and obnoxious sweeping generalizations that I don't want them to make any grammatical sense. I'm just not sure why it seems like this entire country doesn't know the meaning of "almost" - even the people who otherwise have a firm grasp on the language.

Ha I love a good THE GRAND OPEN sign. So close to being right.
