Every day these 3 cunts gather around my desk which is right next to the kettle and have loud conversation/coffee hour.  I really needed to get my third grade lesson done today but couldn't work with them next to me.  So I decided to say **** it and just do a second grade lesson with them.  My coteacher doesn't seem to give a shit anyway... she'll either be fucked off sitting at her desk in the other room or walking around chatting with the kids distracting everyone anyway so **** it.  Now I can sit at my desk and read instead of stressing over it since no one else gives a shit.

Is it a rule that all middle school secretaries have to be as loud and annoying as possible?  I swear the one at this school answers the phone every time with the equivalent of "HELLO YOU HAVE REACHED _____ MIDDLE SCHOOL.  THIS IS _______.  THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CALLING.  YOUR CALL IS IMPORTANT TO US.  HOW MAY I DIRECT YOUR CALL TODAY?"  Every single time.  And then the line disconnects somehow and she answers immediately with the entire speech.  It got ridiculous last winter break when the students were prank calling the school.

Oh cool, we've wheeled in the electric heaters.  Ironically, they left the door next to me wide open when doing so so it felt like my desk was in the arctic.  I look forward to the power surges the heaters will periodically cause that make my computer turn off randomly a few times each day.

Reminds me of a woman I worked with at a gas station in Canada, Barb. She worked inside, I would work the full serve gas bar. My dad would come in to get gas and go inside and it was always the same thing.

Barb: Do you have a CAA card?
Dad: No, Barb, I don't. Just like I didn't have one three days ago.
B: Do you want Vitamin water, 2 for 1?
Dad: Barb, have you ever seen me buy anything other than gas here in the last year? You know I don't have a CAA card, you know I don't want Vitamin Water and you know I'm CO2's dad.
Barb: Sir, this is what we have to say to customers when they come in.
D:  >:( :rolleyes:

Like a goddamn robot. It's my Dad, you're not going to get in trouble for not following protocol, Barb.

There is an older male teacher in my office and whenever he comes back in from taking his breaks he smells so badly of smoke. To the point where he might as well have just stayed and smoked in the office. He must smoke a full pack every break.

He also is extremely loud with every speaking interaction and does those ridiculously loud ahjumma sighs all the time.

My elem. coT asked me when my main school's winter vacation started so I told her (January) and she acted all shocked and asked if I was sure and said she didn't think so--

I cut her off and informed her that we have classes until the end of December just like last year (and just like elem school) and that I have a school calendar. I don't know why she thinks she knows my school's schedule better than I do  :rolleyes:

She then proceeded to go on and say how elem. school has to have classes in Feb. (for two weeks or whatever) and I told her that middle school also has a week of classes in Feb. but she just seemed to be in complete disbelief.

This exchange along with random comments of how I must have "so much free time" now along with talking about how "busy" she is makes me feel like she's trying to have a pissing contest about who works more.  :rolleyes: Judging from the work ethic I've observed, I'm pretty sure I know who the winner is.

I still have absolutely no idea what to do for that week. I told a friend back home that our vacation starts in January and she asked "wait, then why are you not going to be back until the end of February?"

Well, let me tell you...

For the past 3 years (and longer but that's when I got here) my school has always placed emphasis on placing kids in higher grades into English camp. The reason being that the younger grades would have time to do it later.

My current CT has decided to **** with this and switch it around. I was just surrounded by a bunch of almost crying fifth graders asking why they can't go to camp. Which is ofc the first I heard about it.

CTs reasoning. It's 'easier' to teach younger kids.

**** YOU.

Yeah, maybe if you were to actually teach the bloody fuckin' camp it might make a bit of difference. Instead you can't even be arsed to show up after the VP ordered you to and are going to pay your niece a third of the EXTRA PAY you receive to show up and do your job. Oh and that pay is the girls university 'entrance' present. Fuckin' lovely family they must be... At least I won't be constantly interrupted by some old lady that thinks children will go into shock if they aren't injected with juice every fifteen minutes.

As for me, I'm now going to be missing out on the last camp with my grade 5s and 6s whom I've been teaching since they started grade 3 and 4. I have no problems admitting they are by and far my favorite group of kids.

It's not only that my coteacher sometimes speaks with her mouth full at lunch, it's that she ONLY speaks with her mouth full.  Like, a thought pops into her head and she hurries up and takes a bite so she can say it out loud.

My poor coteacher has been sick for the last two weeks, and last night she couldn't sleep because she developed a fever and was coughing so much. She still has a fever today, but she can't go home because King Principal isn't here right now so she can't ask for permission to leave. I don't even know why she came. She's just miserable and exhausted, but here she is anyway spreading her germs There is nothing so important today that she needed to be here. Just stay home and take care of yourself!

Luckily, I managed to get it off by asking for my vacation around that time. The school didn't make a fuss or anything as well. :o

Haha, thank you!  I'm actually doing much better since all my classes are finished for the day  8)

This weekend I was looking at going into Seoul but the trains are insanely sold out probably due to the protests.  Impeach that bitch already so I can go shopping.

Many have pondered.  I'm not trying to gloat but... I don't have to teach at all that week. :P
Phew. Glad I qualified that otherwise it might have come off as gloating.

I don't think I had to either. On Monday when I put in for my winter vacation, I saw the national holidays at the end of jan, and the white days in Feb, and asked "Am I allowed to use vacation on these days?" got told yes, that's fine.
Thanks for the link, I'll have a read!

One of my third grade students has a nasty cold and doesn't cover her mouth when she coughs, etc., and she gave me a massive hug around lunch time today... :cry: I would have taken her arms off of me except that she gets bullied a lot and a couple of boys called her disgusting during class the other day. :sad: I will risk getting sick again, I guess... :blank:
