Imo,

I'm not telling anyone, anything, as I appreciate that this is a rant thread.

I'm just looking to understand where their head is at and what they expect, along with killing some time.

That's messed up.

What is their excuse?

Did you get your severance and pension in full?

My co is just totally ignoring me so I'm not even getting any excuses from my school. I got my severence 3 weeks after I left, which was also later than I expected. And I don't qualify for pension because I'm British!

I emailed the co ordinator for the office of ed but he's on holiday currently  :undecided:

The way that you ask questions is easily interpreted as badgering/disbelief. Tone is hard online though and harder still for some people. I think most of the time that's why people see you as disagreeable (even me sometimes haha).

Why is it when coteachers ask you a question about the difference between two answers they don't tell you what the original question was???

I can tell you the difference between the two sentences, yes.

What I CAN'T tell you is which one is right because I have zero context as to what the original question was....there's virtually a million different ways to answer questions in English and while some may convey more or less information than the other ones, that in itself does not make the answer wrong.

Idk that just seems so weird to me, I told my coteacher on multiple occasions that I can't tell her which one is right without the original question. But she will just text me two sentences (At ALL hours of the day and night mind you) and ask me which one is wrong....wrong in regards to what ma'am???

ughhhhh

I'm going to offend loads of people here.....I'm sick of hearing people from the US whinge about how things are different at home.

I get it, and I know why people do it and i know they are just comparing it to their home as I would do with the UK and I know there is absolutely no reason for me to be so enraged...but  sometimes it makes me want to scream. I think it's just cos there are more of you so I see it more....


There are other countries in the world, and many of them do things differently to the US. Get over it.

Whinge. I feel like I've only ever seen this in text and not spoken aloud where I hail from. I think I like this word and will adopt it.

Do it. It's a very versatile word :) How will you know how to pronounce it though?

Man...that sounds like a case for the Hardly Boys if there ever was one.

Do you have a raging clue for justice?

FND,

Not sure what you expect others to do...

There are a couple of kids at my current school who actually crap in the urinal.

What do you suggest?

Just did some hiking around Seoraksan and seriously this 벌떡주 thing has got to stop. It now seems like every single vendor at every single trailhead of every single mountain now sells this stuff (not to mention every single 강원랜드 rest-stop). When I had just come to Korea and first saw this stuff I thought it was a cute local novelty and even bought a bottle. Now that I know it's everywhere it just seems lewd and obnoxious. Anyone who's spent any amount of time here knows exactly what a dick-headed bottle of alcohol represents and who it attracts.



Don't go anywhere near the mountains this month, by the way, especially to the GRAND OPEN trail by Osaek. An hour line just to get to the trailhead and then 4 hours walking single file to get through the 2km course.

Canada is the coldest country for E2s. We talk about the weather a lot in Canada. Please understand our unique situation.
