Sooooo the routine teacher medical exam I just did now includes anal probing. It wouldn't have even been so terrible if my coteacher spoke English. I didn't understand which hole they wanted me to shove it in  :cry:

This has been phasing in and out for years. When I first arrived in Osan in 2012 and did my medical check, they handed me a Q-tip and told me to have at it (in a public restroom too, how gauche). Subsequent years in other cities (Seoul and Yongin) didn't require that at all.

I don't know what they were looking for in 2012 but they sure as hell didn't find it up my ass.

What in the actual ****? What are they looking for UP OUR ASSES?

I have an upcoming medical exam. I am now slightly uneasy...    :sad:

My name is Chinguetti.
Every time I see your posts now I sing

Knees weak, arms are heavy
There's kimchi on her apron already,

Nice, I've always wanted a theme song. c:

That's it. Contract ended today. Flying home on monday after a weekend in Seoul one more time. Consider me a statistic of high turnover rates, yet also consider me a free man.

I'm not too traumatized, I got to probe my own self in the bathroom. It was just so awkward leading up to it. My coteacher just kept asking "is it possible?.. Inside you?" Over and over. Eventually she translated the word anus. And when I asked what it was testing for she didn't understand.

Oh my god I am sorry but I can't help myself from laughing at "is it possible...inside you?" Were you at least given notice for this probing?

Sorry but there must be a misunderstanding here somewhere.

I assumed you meant the doctor wanted to check your prostate which is pretty normal if you're in one of the high risk age groups.

But you're saying you had to go into a bathroom and insert something into your own anus?  :huh: :huh: :huh:

I think you're in the wrong thread. :laugh:



Also... I wish this was me right now. :sad: I cannot wait for the end of my contract. Just six more months...... The kids were annoying today, but that might have just been me. :laugh:

No notice, haha. When I got back from peeing on the drug test stick my co-teacher was in a heated debate with the nurse about it though.

She always asks if various things are "possible" and 90% of the time I don't know what she's talking about.

I see a particular 6th grade class twice a week and gave them some very light homework for today. Assuming they could get away with it, almost half the class didn't do it. I wasn't having any of that, especially since the students who did do it put effort into their work.

Usually, I'd give them a sentence to write out (I must do my homework etc.). However, it seems like this is the same as normal homework they get from Korean English teachers, who have nary the understanding nor the comprehension to mark anything other than spelling or simple grammar.
This semester, I decided to make them actually think while doing punishment and dread doing it in the future, I gave them 60 trisyllabic words to write out.

I explained what a trisyllabic word was and gave two examples. Furthermore, I give punishment as homework, not classwork, since I want them to pay attention to the lesson... Except one student, who I'll get to in a bit, who was rude on top of not doing his homework, he got 100.
The students immediately began protesting that they didn't know what it was etc.
By a show of hands, I asked students to show if the owned a smartphone, computer and/or had internet access (all hands went up). "Right", I said, "You can use your computers and smartphones for something other than gaming and Kakao, and find trisyllabic words in online dictionaries".
I didn't want to spell out that you could simply put "trisyllabic words" in Naver and get a list.

After class, one kid claims he's already done his and shows me his book with hundreds of random English words written, in no discernible order, most of which were not trisyllabic. I can't believe how spoilt, entitled and useless these kids can be, when given a task that requires thought and initiative. Punishment is supposed to be unpleasant.

They gave me a long Q-tip attached to a lid, with a small bottle for it to be screwed on to and asked me to swab the inside of my asshole. I was expecting at least a handicapped bathroom like we would get when asked to do a piss test at home, but nope. Just a tiny stall, me, the Q-tip and the love of Christ. Still, I'd take this over a doctor doing it for me. No need for two people to be degraded.

Thankfully, I was mentally prepared for it since a fellow waygook teacher warned me. I still have no idea why I haven't done it since or why it is apparently making a come back.

Conversely, the reward system here seems nuts to me. No skin off my back usually since my co-ts are mostly in charge of that but I do periodically give out sweets for a job well done/completed work.

In the moment I'm like, "Yay, they're happy because they got chocolate!" but after class I realize how bizarre it is to get candy for making an effort in class.

Not really upset, just mystified. I had class with the crazy kid from yesterday who attacked and broke my teachers desk over his phone. He was totally fine now, waved to me, said "Hi teacher!!" and carried on with his business. He had gotten no punishment even though he cussed me out and damaged school property. How can the school not punish him? That isn't the sort of behavior that is ok. Yet... it is?

I left two weeks ago, but after 7 1/2 years in the land of kimchi smiles, I'm having a hard time breaking the habit of checking in to see what everyone is arguing about on waygook.

Et tu, Jackson? You're gone? Paul stopped posting nearly a month ago. I haven't seen Johnny Russian in ages. Agent Michael Scarn left no trace after the Brexit( :cheesy:). Khavala got rid of his Emilio Esteves profile pic. Tamjen cut out I don't know how many months ago. TeresaD's husband with the Weird Al pic is nowhere to be found. NomadicMadda is running off to school. We're left here to fend for ourselves among the "eating dog in korea," "sh*t talkers," and "trouble among coworkers" threads that just won't die... :cry:

*I nearly forgot to mention the longstanding feud between warring factions now working itself out in full public view on the "korean shooting medals" thread.

What got me was when one of the very last students to show up asked me if he could go get a drink of water as soon as sat down.

This drives me insane. You're already late, just drink some water or piss before you come to my class. I'm not going to be more mad that you're 8 mins late versus 6 mins late.

DERP

Please understand their situation. They have only been told no when it comes to not studying English. Everything else is ok. After all, the parents and the teachers already feel bad about that.

Don't forget we tragically lost our favourite crazy conspiracy theorist Kliuchevskoi a few weeks ago. Times are hard indeed. Scarn's still around though.

I'm pretty sure Kliuchevskoi has been reborn as Aurata. The guy with the cat as his pic.
Either that or there are two pathologically pro-Russian nut bars roaming around Korea.

This does explain the lack of good entertainment on the forums these days, I was hoping everyone was just on vacation!!!

TeresaD's husband was banned immediately from waygook, apparently on a 15% warning... 15% warning and then BOOM!!! Gone!

Let's get back to this anal probe thing? Not sure I would actually do it. I would just give them back the clean Q-tip claiming religious reasons......  Also I asked a nurse friend and she said she knew it to be used to test for anal gonorrhea.   :blank:
