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.

Not a teaching related rant but:
Sweet unholy raptor Jesus do I hate other people. I've gotten back into competitive Overwatch, and while I'm not that good (average as best), I've gone on a massive losing streak (25 losses in a row), most of which could have been avoided with just a bit of teamwork. I've dropped 2 tiers, and have almost dropped a 3rd, because people don't want to work together to try and win, they just do their own thing and ruin things for everyone else on the team. :\
This has put me in a very bad mood the last 2 days. >.<
