So it's deskwarming time again -

What are some good online games you play at work to pass the time?

My suggestion - http://agar.io/

Move a circle around collecting other circles whilst trying not to be eaten by bigger circles  :laugh: It's very addictive and infuriating!

damn, some of the guys on there are huge (that's what she said).

How do I make my circle go faster?

You can't. As it gets bigger it gets slower, but you don't need to be fast...just greedy.

Get Out Of Desk Warming?
« Reply #756 on: July 24, 2015, 05:31:46 PM »
Okay, so we all hate desk warming and look for a way out of it... and I know it's probably useless to even have hope to get out of it (in my case anyway) but I had this convo on FB with this person who gets out of it and says I am letting my school "push" me around...

see image attached.

now really, how in the hell is he pulling this off? And 2nd, has anyone else done this and is sitll here and not facing a volatile work environment - coz I know my main school vice would flip!

Answers??

Is it because of his residency?

how how how??

UPDATE:
I'd never sacrifice my good relationships with my schools for time off desk warming (I can take unpaid leave if I want it that bad) I have been here already 2 years , I know the drill and I pick my battles.

Turns out he is just a jerk and now works privately at home , online - probably where he belongs, I feel sorry for his co-workers.

If you do this, be prepared to have all your jeong flushed down the toilet and have a hellish fall semester. Just because this guy's school declined to take it to the labor board doesn't excuse his behavior. Having an F visa is not a
 license to be a knob. I wouldnt expect any reference letters either.

 Why not have him post to waygook to share the secrets of his visa?

It is every employee's duty to abide by the contract, which clearly states that we are required to come to school Monday-Friday, 8 hours a day, except for our paid vacation days and holidays.

This guy sounds like he's either BSing or happens to be one of the lucky few where their schools allow them to stay home, and he's just playing it up to sound like he's a big shot. Refusing to abide by the contract is certainly not going to put you in any good light with the school and IS grounds for getting you fired. Contract teachers are also required to come in, not just us. It's not discrimination against NETs, it's abiding by what your contract clearly states.

OP, ignore that guy and what he says. Do your duty and do it without complaint, like the rest of us.

RE: desk warming... bring a kindle and read, bring an instrument and write music, work on upping your credentials, prepare for whatever future lessons you have...be productive and it will not be time wasted.

I had a question. I'm barely into my first year as a GEPIK teacher and first time in Korea so I'm still trying to understand desk warming etiquette. What do you guys usually do during this time?

BIG QUESTION: Does your co teacher sit in the same room as you during this time? Me and my co teacher get along very well but we usually sit in complete silence during the "desk warming" periods. I just don't feel like I could get away with watching movies and stuff because my co teacher is in the room and she also seems to not listen to music or anything. (I'd love to listen to music.)
