Today I'm angry with myself.

1 .Had a short conversation with a charming person (who will remain genderless) who started by listing their qualifications and saying they were more qualified than any NETs in Korea and how good they were at their job and how NETs weren't really needed in their classroom. What they missed about the NETs was getting all the creative lesson plans and speaking lessons the NET did.

I SWEAR people don't think before they speak to me.

I didn't say anything. I just stared at her. I can't help feeling I should've said something. I don't know what, I'm still trying to figure that out but I should've said something.

2. A CT and I were talking about stupid things we'd done in our childhoods and I told my CT something stupid I did as a kid (touched dry-ice) that she told the students in her class as a warning of why-you-should't-do-this. She didn't ask me if she could say anything. She just just told her class and everyone else she met. I found out when the kids came to tell me that my CT had told them, "I did something stupid." (Which is true but besides the point)

I'm so angry because I didn't stop to think about the cardinal rule: don't give out any personal information. I didn't confront her afterwards either. She's a nice person but I should've said something.

Went on a fifth date to play some badminton. All the nets were taken so we decided to play on the stonework that was next to the courts. Bad idea.

I didn't think about how uneven it is. I jumped too high to get the birdie and landed on my right foot.

 :police: Jesus. Yeah, I've done this before. This one is 10% of that.

 :-* Kevin, you are so passionate about what you do.

 :police:  :afro: Thanks.

I'm curious why her gender deserves (or doesn't deserve?) mentioning here...?

Had a nice two week vacation in the states where servers never questioned my ability to consume without complaint the dish I had ordered, but then on the flight home...

Non-Korean Flight attendant: Would you like the beef bibimbap or the chicken pasta?

Me: I'll have the bibimbap

N-K FA: Here you go!

Me: eating quietly  :azn:

Korean FA: sees me eating happily ISN"T THAT TOO SPICY FOR YOU??   :shocked: :shocked:

Me:

I know it shouldn't make me rage so hard but that and the "oooohhh, you can use chopsticks so good!" nonsense are basically the only comments that really grate on my nerves here, plus it was a real nice reminder that vaca was over and I was heading back to the 대한민국! :undecided:

What's the deal with all of these little fruit flies? They swarm all over my garbage and come into the main room. I've blocked off the finger holes on the mesh screens, I put all organic rubbish in the freezer before I throw it out and I've sprayed the hell out of them yet they're still there the little f&$@*&s!!!

First class of the semester, and the electrical outlets are turned off in the classroom because of a renovation on the same floor.

Computer battery dies, so I can't even use my ppt - which the kids can't see- for reference.

This is a free-semester lesson, not a textbook lesson. 

Just makes me want to scream.

I've been having the same problem. I have to take my trash out way more often than I did during the winter because if I leave a rinsed off meat package in there, there will be fruit fly swarm by the next day.

Yeah. They're impossible to keep out: their larvae come in via the veggies and fruit that you bring in.
Best way to resolve this issue is to toss out your food rubbish every day, and to store it in your freezer until you do.

I hate it when people think they can call me at work for any old reason. If it's not an emergency, don't ****** call me while I'm at work. I don't care if it's your break, I don't care if you think it's my break. Don't_fucking_call_me_at_work. At least text me to see if it's okay first.

With the spirit of that in mind, I ****** hate telemarkers with a passion, but I still haven't figured out a reliable way of blocking their numbers here. I mean... is there a good app for that? One that won't accidentally filter out wanted calls?

Clearly not coming back from vacation very gracefully.

So glad that they don't expect me to conduct classes this week because, honestly, those kids would have been traumitized by the amount of confusion that I'd have otherwise inflicted opon them had I been given the usual run right after a big break.
