Talking about lunch

I just opted out for December. I already paid 100k for this months lunch so I may as well stick it out.

The more I look into what they serve, and how unhealhty it is the more I feel inclined to bring my own lunch.

Looking forward to eating clean and healthy! Although I will miss the warm soup as its been nice to have on these cold days.

The idea of napping in the workplace. "Oh its ok so-in-so teaches hard so they have to take naps!" So apparently if you are seen taking naps in the office people just assume you worked yourself till you could go no more and had to take a nap. Even napping during classes. I never have complained about it, but after my coteacher asked about I had to explain to my coteachers that in previews jobs I had seen people fired on the stop for a first nap taking offense that was considered stealing in the states.

Also, people in my office snore. Loud.

Why do so many old people here need to travel during commuting hours? They hog up a lot of seats, prowl through the packed aisles to find a seat, congregate near the exit doors and have no balance when the subway shakes.

Time to end free travel for senior citizens during commuting hours.

I just opeted back in out of necessity.  Two days and my stomach is in actual pain. I just don't have the time to cook at home anymore. I'll probably get cancer...

Man i was just thinking this same thing. Currently on a bus rammed with ajumma during peak hours. And of course they all live in the rural areas so they never stand and relent seats until the bus goes way out there from my city.

I mean, can they not just do their commute like 30 minutes or an hour earlier?

My gf just said that I can't put the pomegranate rinds in the compost here (municipal compost collection) because they don't accept that. It's not food. The way it works here isn't that it's composted, it's that it's used for feed for farms. So no peels. She said left over rice from dinner is okay, or vegetable parts (the parts that you or I would eat) are okay, but that peels aren't.

Does this make any sense? Pigs don't give a shit about whether it's an orange peel or a slice of orange.

Also, it's stupid that they feed it to animals, it should be composted en masse and then sent to farms as high quality fertiliser.

Any insights?

I think it is silly. We have something like seven different bins.

I guess the rationale of using compost as feed is it is like a farming subsidy or something.

Do yet actually still do that, though?

My wife worked as a scientist in the ag industry in Canada, and they put a lot of thought into the feed mix for hogs there to maximize gain.

I would think that feeding pigs slop out of compost bags is now just propaganda.

I just did this a few months ago, feels great. Usually I bring a protein + salad but I hear you - not having warm food this time of year is hard. And then of course your coworkers scrutinize your "small portions" even though, nutritionally, you're getting something much more valuable.

Just heard boss cot gossiping and giggling with other teachers about how messy my desk is in Korean. Like... they know I can understand some Korean, especially if it's simple. I guess because I'm always listening rather than speaking they forget though.

Anyways, all that does is just make me not want to clean my desk, ever. She's such an ass I don't want to do anything that will make her happy lol.

(Fun fact: When we had our first fight, back in like April, and she made me cry, afterwards she gave me a banana choco pie to apologize. I decided I wouldn't eat it until I had forgiven her. It's still on my bookshelf at home.)

I feel like they should put the female NETs with a male co teacher. All I ever here on here from a female female team is constant bickering, bitching and fighting. The female male combinations seems to produce less of that shite. Sue me.

All of my other coteachers are also women and we get along great. It's 1 out of 5 total coteachers, or 20%, that I don't get along with

if you don't want to read about people having arguments with their coteachers, maybe don't come into the ranting/venting thread? lol

The real question, of course, is if a pig eats the banana choco pie (pure poison), does it mean that the pig has forgiven her?  :huh:

I enjoy a rant. I'll stay. I wasn't having a dig at you personally it just seems to be the general consensus around here that i've noticed over the past decade and 600+ pages of the ranting threads.

Less bickering.......

but when I had a male co teacher I was treated like a child, belittled and perved at. He was a bit older and was obviously trying to be nice but it would make my skin crawl. He would also randomly scream at the students for no reason.
 The younger male co teacher I had would distract the boys in the class, obviously wanting to be their brother and feel like a cool teacher.


I've never had problems with co-teachers but bickering seems way more easy. Even with the above teachers I just shut up and played the EPIK co teaching game and as far as I know they loved me.

It sounds so backwards and if this were home I would totally disagree...but I feel like here in Korea its way more comfortable to put male with male and female with female. This isn't true all of the time sure...but sadly it mostly is.

The heat is on full blast in the office this morning, which naturally means it has gotten a little uncomfortable in here. What have they done to combat that, you ask?

Turn down the heater a bit?

Maybe take off their winter coats?

Alas, they've gone with the "open all the windows" option. The heat's still blasting, the coats are still on, but now the heat can escape and cool air can come in and temper the heat a bit. A brilliant solution, really. We all have so much to learn from our coworkers.
