They're doing construction on the exterior of the building, so drills and hammers bashing away.
To sooth my soul, my CT and a HR teacher have been sitting in the office singing Christmas and Church hymns in the key of 'H', for the past 2hrs! Anywhere other than the office is colder than the planet Hoth.

Shoot me, please!
Big deal.  My apartuh is situated directly above a big intersection, where roadwork has been going on since shortly after I moved there, March, 2016.

Since it's such a busy intersection, the roadwork has been done at night, from 8 PM until about 5:30 AM.  I have not had an uninterrupted night's sleep in all that time.  They finally finished last week.

Two hours! Pshaw.

I'm betting that's illegal and they're doing it because it's cheaper and nobody has the balls to complain.
Either way, March 2016? Why haven't you moved?
Of course it's not illegal.  If they did it during the daytime, road traffic on the west side of Seoul would grind to a halt.  Construction at major intersections all over the world is done at night for this reason.

Why would it be cheaper at night?  It's probably more expensive as graveyard shift workers always demand a little extra.

Actually there is (seldom followed) noise ordinance which forbids noise over a certain level after a certain time at night.  This is why major construction projects have decibel metres displying readings to the public.  The rules also say there can be no construction work in a residential area on Sundays.  I once complained about a building site making nouse 18 hours a day 7 days a week and all city hall said was:

Yes, many people have complained.

NOTHING HAPPENED!

It's winter and as usual everyone complaining how cold is inside. Yes, well maybe it wouldn't be cold if people built buildings with insulation and stopped opening doors and windows.

The classic these days are teachers who open the door (classroom or office) and just stand in the doorway waiting/looking for someone. 

Also I've resigned myself to the fact that my students will never close a door behind them even when reminded a million times.  I can just hear the voice of my mum..."Where you born in a barn?!!!"  :laugh:

You knows it's bad in your building when you look forward to coming to school to find some quiet time.  Yet another weekend my c*k sucking neighbor had the music cranked for 12+ hours, Sat. and Sun.  The topper was having to listen to him rabbit f*ck some girl in the building.  But this usually only lasts a good 5~10 mins.  Yay for me, but kina sad for her!

So, um, would you like a biology lesson?

Or maybe a lesson on how not to use insults traditionally aimed at hurting LGBT people, especially when they don't even apply?

How is my rant in anyway geared toward the LGBT community?  Ya know what?  I don't even wanna know nor do I even care.  Be gone troll.

My guess is the c*ck sucking part in that there is nothing wrong with sucking some c*ck.

 :rolleyes:  Regardless of what people say, there's someone some where, that will be offended.  If I would have called the person a 'jerk',  would I have to worry about a physics major being offended?  "It's a rate of change of acceleration!  NOT A PERSON!"  I'm waiting for PETA to come rushing in and tell me I'm encouraging the rape of innocent bunnies by using the line 'rabbit f*ck"...    :rolleyes:

I am sorry that you chose to defensively double down on your ignorance and throw a little tantrum.

Please do not use hurtful, homophobioc language. I don't understand why you are throwing a wobbly over this.

What a shame that people like you go into education.

I hate ads.

I report every single ad that appears on my Facebook profile as 'sexually explicit'. Every single one.

FB will send me a notification every single day saying 'we have reviewed your report' blah blah blah. But they only ever do this when it's a small time advertiser. I've never had a FB response from one of the big companies' advert reports. Seems like they have special treatment for the big boys. This bothers me, but not as much as the ads themselves.

Those ads when you are watching a video.... ooooh. I deleted the app after I saw that shit.

Perhaps they have already reviewed it?

"I use a free service and then there are ads? Why is this happening to me?"

I will never understand this argument. Same with youtube, "The ads are annoying!!"

You watch as many videos as you want for free. Suck it up.

Anyone come across the youtube ad playing recently of an older Korean lady eating some crunchy fried chicken with her mouth open? Horrific. I reported that shit and went to the video page itself and left a rude comment.

Firstly please don't use vulgar language discriminating the LGBT community.  :rolleyes: :laugh:

Secondly, I was complaining about the reporting of ads not the fact that there are ads. Facebook isn't free. They sell my data and I don't receive any compensation for it. They owe me money not ads.

I would much rather pay a subscription than have to see an ad. I really mean that.

Ads are like those people that write: 'I know you won't read this' CORRECT! I won't read it.

Or

Please like and subscribe within the first minute or more than once on any Youtube video gets an instant dislike from me.  :evil:

Smash the like button is an instant dislike as well. Well pointed out.

Those people that play an animation on their video with their mouse scrolling over to the subscribe button and then the bell notification button also earn an instant dislike.

I really don't mind the constant "Do you have a girlfriend?" question being asked by Koreans (save the time that it was the immediate follow-up to when the taxi driver asked me where I was going), but what gets me is when you say "No" and they ask "Why?"

It's already awkward enough, but it gets even more so if the answer is:

  • I recently broke up.
  • My partner died.
  • I don't want a relationship.

Bet they'd stop asking then (or at least, I'd hope).
