The woman in the office is like it's lunch time let's go. I should be happy, i know, but I'm not 73 years old and I don't eat lunch at 11:45 on weekdays.

I donít get it.

What does age have to do with it?

Neither do I.  If I have no fourth period class then I'll have my lunch at 11:30, probably because I'm a little bored.  I kind of like to eat lunch early, and I usually always have dinner about 5pm.  During the holidays, we had a family gathering and my sister was against booking the restaurant for 5pm because 'it was too early for dinner'.  I equally don't understand my wife or Koreans on their dinner eating/midnight snack policy.  My wife will have dinner anytime from 6pm-1am, and my students regularly eat chicken or other delivery food before bed.
Yeah, our lunch break at school is at 11:35. I'm not a huge fan of that early because I'm not as hungry then, but it is what it is.

I'd love to eat lunch at around 11 - 12 PM because I'm usually hungry as hell by then. I'm practically gnawing on my desk. If I didn't have my little snacks in between, I'd probably ****** riot.

No one should have to go through this.

I use to eat at 11:30 sometimes if I didn't have a class during that period when I was in Middle School?  Elementary, the classes get crammed into the mornings and I never get to eat like that early.  Today had 5 in a row and ate after 1 pm.  I do not like doing all my classes in a block.  I wish they'd spread them out like they do in middle school.

lunchtime is 1230pm here. But teachers who don't work the before lunch period, have lunch from 12pm.

I don't understand. Students seemed to get punished for the weirdest things here. Some girls at my second school were crying in the halls, and were ACTUALLY BEING PUNISHED for calling a delivery to the school auditorium. That actually makes sense but I didn't expect such a harsh reaction. And today, one student put his feet on the desk and my co-teacher was livid to the point of stopping my class.

But ya know, ignoring the English teacher and talking during the lesson are just fine.  :undecided:

I've noticed that. Things in my class are just responded to with "hahah yeah kids will be kids!!" but they screw up elsewhere and it's like "you must scrub the classroom on your knees for your insolence."

Do they actually make their students do that? I've only seen such cases in movies  :huh:

WTF is it with people thinking native speakers are the weakest link that they can take advantage of?

The cupboards for slippers were reorganised such that I didn't have one. As a result, I got to work on Tuesday to find another teacher's slippers on top of mine. I immediately found a Korean English teacher and let her know how pissed I was. That worked, because the shoe cupboards were rearranged so that I had one by lunch.

Today, I get to work to find them rearranged again, although this time I do have a cupboard. However, there is already a pair of women's shoes and guest slippers in there. They are now on the floor, and they are going to be moved ever increasing distances from the shoe cupboard each time I find them in there. Or maybe I'll just wear my shoes.

Too many foreign teachers act like pathetic little mice in Korea. I wish people would make Koreans realise they can't screw us around just because we don't fit into their retarded 10th century hierarchy.

I wear my shoes, and I quite like it. I was told originally that I needed slippers, but I said everyone walks outside with their slippers, so it is all dirty just the same. They just looked at me. I never bought slippers.

I can't be arsed with slippers anymore. I bought shoes for both indoor and outdoor use, but the truth is I never change them out, and no one has said anything to me about it, yet.
