^ Lol.

Admin. creep puts me on edge whenever he's nearby or tries to speak to me. Questions that are ordinary from anyone else are simply creepy from him.

No, you do not need to know if I'm going out tonight. Or tomorrow. Or ever. My personal time is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!! Get that through your thick skull!!  >:(

If my school gets a replacement for me when I'm done here, I'm definitely passing on a full warning about his past shenanigans.


You sound full-on obsessed with him. It's beyond creepy. What happened- did he pay you a compliment once? HOW DARE HE!!! You should learn to move on and not carry that negativity with you because it will eat you up.

Wow, did you really just make a wild assumption about a situation without knowing literally anything about it? Do you honestly think that most people would find someone creepy just because he dared pay them a compliment? You've got it completely flipped around.

yirj17's admin creep is a married man with a kid. He's tried to put the moves on yirj17 on numerous occasions despite her making it clear that she is 100% not interested in him and has a boyfriend. The admin creep borderlined stalked her and even hovered outside her home on at least one occasion. yirj17 had to get multiple people at her school involved to make him leave her alone, all of whom agreed that yirj17 had reason and the right to be concerned with that guy and his behavior towards her. None of the other KTs at her school like him, either, because there is something seriously wrong with him.

It's hard to move on from that when that person won't let you. He still works in the same office as her, hasn't quite accepted that she really and truly isn't interested in having an affair with him, and, even though he's backed off some because he knows people are watching him now, still tries to involve himself in her life in that attempt. He's an idiot who has a complete lack of social awareness, but he thinks he's clever, so imagine what you get with that kind of man when he has a sexual obsession with you. 

yirj17 isn't really carrying that negativity around with her so much as she's just keeping her guard up around him. Because, you know, he's not some poor and innocent guy. He's a legitimate and inappropriate creep who doesn't understand the meaning of "no".

Just let her ****** rant about him.

Aw, thanks chinguetti. Saves me from giving an explanation and reiterating tales of being stalked.

The point about carrying negativity is valid. Generally it's out of sight, out of mind, but because of deskwarming season, all the other teachers are gone and this guy thinks he can creep again. I was puttering around in the English lab and he stopped by multiple times within the span of like half an hour to "check the electricity." :undecided: I told him I wasn't finished -- which was obvious because otherwise I would have turned everything off and locked up. I briefly went out of the room to return some supplies elsewhere and when I came back he had turned off the power strip for the computer. Which was annoying because I had literally just told him I wasn't done in there.

Kinda difficult to avoid him when we're the only two people in the building and he bothers me with inane stuff. The secretary left early that day so I guess that's why he was particularly bothersome. If this is how he decides to be during deskwarming then I'm gonna just say screw it and work from home.

Omg.  At my second school I can't lesson plan because when I try to save things on that computer it doesn't work.  The computer people all tried to fix it and no one could.  Now after I've come back to my main school I see that this one is doing the same thing and no one speaks English here to help me.  And even when my coteacher returns she's basically 100% useless and explaining it is gonna be a nightmare.

My rant: the new people who come on these threads and judge people based off one post which is part of a situation that has been going on for months  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Remember when that guy tried to berate me for "trying to get involved in office politics"? Lol

Hahahaha, no. There is one "stick person" and 3 direction givers per face (group), so one kid gets a bit of paper glue (normal glue stick on his/her hands nothing a wet wipe can't cleanup), and yes, if I had wanted the activity to be repeatable I would have used magnets. I am not a noob. The craft is part of a project and continues through the whole ten day camp. Face, body, colors, clothes, etc..
Ah ok, that makes sense!
There are some crazy lesson plans on this site, so I thought I would just offer some unasked for suggestions:azn:

Not a problem at all, plus sometimes my plans are pretty noobish and half way through I will stop and think "you really didn't think this through did ya?"

Aw man. So I ordered some Bear Creek soup mixes from Coupang awhile back and was fixin' to have the chili mix over the weekend. Too late I saw that it requires the addition of a can of tomato paste. Which doesn't seem to exist at the local marts.

Gonna have to wait until my next order and add a thing of tomato paste  :-[ May as well order enough ingredients to make chili from scratch as well. So much for being lazy, hah

Forgive people for being so rude as to judge someone based off a single post, more like it. Lol. But hey, it's the internet. You can't take others too seriously.

The dude is just an annoying git so I complain on here as it's the appropriate thread. It's not like I bring him up IRL conversations. Like just now he popped into the office twice, said nothing to me, then returned to ask if I'd like to join him for lunch. Lol no. I shook my head. This is pretty universal for "no" I would think but he popped in yet again to "confirm" so I had to verbally tell him "no."

In other rant news, I didn't bother to try to get my dramamine prescription refilled because even though I'd been feeling less sick I was still feeling sick, and that was a mistake, to say the least

Wonder if I can convince my coteacher to let me use sick leave to get out of work early and get that all figured out

Omg.  My ct is off today.  When I got to work my desk was covered in sticky notes with instructions for camp.  Then she called the office and there was an awkward phone hand off to me in which she asked if I saw all her notes.  And then she asked if it was possible for me to turn off and on the heat, even though one of the notes says "sixtieshappy!  Turn off the heater."  Just imagining her sitting at home and freaking out over all of this...

It starts young, today at camp:
A 6th grade girl was pleading with me to show her how to put 2 pieces of paper together
using a paper clip... She spent more time pleading than actually attempting the task. When
she saw I was going to help her, she attempted it and gave up.

Omg a few months ago I was shocked to see a bunch of my middle school students didn't understand paper clips.

Probably, since he's apparently one of those guys that shames women for feeling uncomfortable by sarcastically saying "OMG what did he do? Pay you a compliment? How horrible! :rolleyes: " and then blames others because he took something out of context and didn't ask for clarification before passing down judgement.

What I really don't understand is why people double down when you point out that they were in the wrong, or misunderstood something. Like once Chinguetti exhaustively explained the situation he could've been like "Oh wow, I'm sorry. That was inappropriate and not cool of me to say." instead of the standard "WELL, we can't REALLY know because we haven't heard HIS side of the story"  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The other day one of my friends back home posted a thing on facebook asking people not to support her ex's band because he's abusive and manipulative and actively seeks out younger girls. Some guy snarkily said like "Pretty sure I've seen you dancing to Chris Brown songs before" because he didn't realize that this was someone who had personally hurt her. After that misunderstanding was cleared up for some reason he... continued hassling her???

I wanted to renew for 2nd year here.
However, my open class back in September was supposed to get moved to December, but the school forgot and didn't do it.
Today I got told that I can't renew, because no one knows what to do if an employee misses their open class. When I asked for more clarification, I just got told: "it's a mix of when you started is a strange time, problems between city hall / education board, and teacher / student / principal's feelings towards you." or something. I had a good rapport with all my co-teachers, students, and principals.
I guess, I'll talk with my recruiter and see if I can get this sorted out, I'd love to stay in my area for 1 more year.

If not, I'll go back to NZ for a small break and try find something with an August start in Japan. :D
