Are you kidding me? Being thousands of km away from home, away from family, and everything familiar will lead to some bouts of sadness. Especially if there was a major event such as a death in the family or not being able to see a major life event such as a siblings wedding. People get sad at times. I'm not saying you should yell at kids when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, but shit does happen.
As I have said, if you are an emotional "wreck", take a "sick" day.

Why come to school and "infect" others in the workplace, your school, with your moodiness?

It isn't "fair" to your students or your coteachers.

Bottom line, I'm afraid I don't agree with your blanket excuse that "shit does happen" should equate to "being unprofessional is OK".  It is NOT.

I am really not clear on your reference points throughout life that have brought you to some of these outlandish conclusions.  Maybe you favor alexithymia and it makes it hard for you to accept that humans generally experience a range of different emotions every day or maybe you've seen Girl Interrupted a boatload of times.

Either way, it's not unprofessional to have feelings. It doesn't make you a wreck. It doesn't mean you're infecting others.  It also doesn't mean you're blaring "Everybody Hurts", snapping at kids, sobbing between choral drills, etc.

I sincerely hope that the empathy you lack for other adults is at least dispensed to your students who may be similarly "moody" based on unsafe/chaotic home lives, bullying, etc.

PECAN: wow, in my 10 years here i've never had a coteacher hit me. i'm not sure if you are trolling? anyway OP, if you're not, i think you need to take a long hard look at what behaviors you have been doing recently that caused your coteacher to hit you. perhaps there was a cultural misunderstanding? not every foreigner is as in tune with korean culture as i am, and knows how to conduct themselves in the workplace like i do. is there anything about your coteaching relationship that might have caused her to act this way? perhaps you have been stressing her out recently. also, getting your coteacher arrested will not reflect well on you. you should look for another job when your contract is up because you won't get renewed.

Pecan your latest post is just another example of what i was talking about. how do you get 'emotional wreck' from someone saying they aren't feeling as chipper as usual?

and if that person did take a sick day you'd probably berate them for 'not being able to control their emotions', or being weak, or something like that  :rolleyes:

this is an example of one of your typical posts:

PERSON: the most incredible thing just happened. my coteacher stormed into the teachers office, started randomly hitting me. then she burst into a classroom, screamed in a student's face and tore up his textbook. after that she ran into the parking lot, got in her car and crashed it into a wall. the principal called the police and she was arrested. they took her to the hospital where she had a brain scan done and they found a brain tumor. doctors say that's the reason why she was acting so crazy. she's now undergoing emergency brain surgery.

Thanks for the cackle.

I haven't actually audibly laughed at something on this Waygook.org website in a really long time - until this.

What I do is analysis.
What are you analyzing?

Evolutionary biology / anthropology.

That's because health is a more or less undefined parameter defined by the individual using it.

It is quantifiable, and the metics do not include life span. It's not "all subjective", that's just what religious cult people say.  :azn:
You were pointed to a source, the World Health Organization.  Go learn something.

As for the sensitive millennials that I continue to offend, please understand ;)

I am from a different generation/born in a much different time.  I view this form of interaction quite a bit differently than you facebook, twitter, tinder using folks do (not my cup of tea).

It doesn't register as "real"/humane to me in the least, so I can be pretty tone deaf when it comes to my level of empathy.

I don't post here to coddle nor to be coddled by others.

I'm simply killing time and enjoy being able to help some in the rare occasion when I am able.

No harm meant here.

Hmmm. It sounds suspiciously like you are asking for empathy considering your special situation. That's pretty snowflake-y of you.

My apologies (in perpetuity).

If it has to be explained to you, it means you missed it ;)

I don't think you offend anyone. Except the time you were chastising a dead couple who had fallen to the deaths for not having funeral insurance. While family members were posting in the same thread.

You just seem dreadfully out of touch with real human interaction. If you didnt already mention it I would guess people like you or Ptolemy had been in Korea for 20 plus years. It really, really shows.

ME: What's going on over at Waygook these days? ...oh.

Stop feeding the trolls!

1. Pecan gives these replies because people get mad.

2. Ptolemy is a troll, but also, as someone with an evolutionary anthropological background, I can tell you that he/she is supah supah wrong-uh. Probably the kind of person who uses the term "Paleo" incorrectly all the time, Ugh.

Anyways, thanks for the Overwatch game. Nice to see there are still so many good resources on this site.


P.S. Loki88, damn, don't let your kid die for the sake of family harmony! If she does it again, pretend you're gonna pop him in the freezer :D (kidding. Hope your kiddo's gonna be okay.)

I really want this deep fried garbage now, but I don't think it exists in Korea (?) and though I've made cali rolls before, I've never deep fried them myself.  Ugh, crispy goodness with eel sauce and spicy mayo.
