I recommend the genderless spam gift set.

Showoff with your foreign imports. You probably even eat it with utensils :rolleyes:.

I'm *THIS CLOSE* to specifying your gender!

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.

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!!!

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 don't even leave fruit or vegetables in my apartment anymore. I miss seedless grapes  :-[

The teacher next to me is sucking on candy in a way that can only be described as violently.

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.

Yeahhhh, they drive me mad. Even tried the plastic bottle trick but they didn't fall for it.  :cry:

Just gave my 60 days notice. Already getting the guilt trip about how much of a burden 2 extra classes a week for 2 months will be for my CTs.

Fruit flies normally make it into your home from the fruit or veggies you buy from wherever. So eat them fast and/or keep them sealed in your own containers and/or in the fridge -- remove them from any packaging or containers that they were purchased in and toss those out immediately.

Once fruit flies are in the home, you have to get rid of any source of food. So organic waste should be immediately disposed of, leftovers should be kept in sealed containers or in the fridge. Sink and drain need to be kept empty and cleaned. Trash needs to be taken out or sealed so that there's no in or out unless you say so. Surfaces should be wiped down. Fruit flies can live on very, very little. So you need to be diligent. :)

Then you kill off the fuckers still flying around, and you'll be good after a couple of days.

I feel that. Was scheduled for 4 classes today (first day back for the kiddos) and (thankfully!) only one had the gall to show up. Still a little annoyed at that TBH... :rolleyes:

I mean you can't expect me to go form 0 to 4/5 classes all on the first day! I need time to make peace with the fact that I even have to be in this building again for 8 hours a day. And you you want me to be fun and talky, too?! No way. Slowly, please. Ease me into it like an old man into a warm bath.

Seriously, even the KTs are like, "Wtf is the point?"

They've just been skimming by with easy review lessons. I've only seen like a couple of math teachers immediately launch into the next chapter.

I left on vacation for 2 weeks and thought I had taken out the trash before I left. I had not. The trash was a disaster. Fruit flies everywhere, egg sacs stuck to the inside of the bin. It was awful.

Trick for getting rid of the remaining fruit flies in your house:
Put some yeast, warm water, and a little sugar in an empty plastic bottle. Beer might work too. Cover with plastic wrap and poke a few small holes in the wrap. The fruit flies will get stuck in the bottle and drown in the liquid.

Wife's main school was forced to remain closed and extend the holidays until Friday, the cafeteria is undergoing renovations.

Prior to this, the school asked the parents to help out by preparing lunches for their children for that week so they didn't have to close and be forced to start winter holidays late. The overwhelming majority refused claiming they were "too busy"... What kind of parent keeps their kid out of school for a week because they can't be arsed to make their own children lunch for a few days?

Maybe it was a ploy to get their kids more vacation time.  :shocked: Conspiracy!

Man I feel for you. I haaaaaate the "you have sick days but not really" policy. A few weeks back, I couldn't swallow without triggering convulsions. I was very clear with my Co-t but still got a response like "Oh so you will not teach your classes today?" as if I was shirking my English Clown duties to jerk off at home.
