Haha. I can't imagine having students that high level.

Mine would be more like:

#bcbs: Okay. I'm going to give you five cards.
S': *blank stare*
#bcbs: Five. Cards. Cards. One two three four five. Cards. I will give.
S's: *look at Korean coteacher*
#bcbs: How many cards will I give?
S's: *blank stare*
S: 아 영어 싫어! 왜 계속 영어 말아?
#bcbs: Because. Anyways. I'll give you five cards. Make groups of four students. Groups. Four students. Four.
S's: *blank stare*

There's a guitar I want very badly, but it costs $4435. I'm caught between "#YOLO" and "#areyouf*ckingcrazy."

Sell one of your old guitars to offset the cost and then buy it. That makes it cheaper. #lifehacks

I always find that with stuff like, you'll forget how much it costs after a while, because you'll get so much enjoyment out of it. And it'll last forever

I've been with KEB for years and am happy with their service etc.  But there's something I don't understand from a customer service point of view.  When I call their English line and they've dealt with my query, I just want them to say 'Have a good day', I just want to say goodbye, and that's it.  I don't understand why there is the awkward bit at the end where they have to tell me their name.  I doesn't make sense to me.  At the beginning?  Okay.  At the end, when I just want to go?  No.

Catch students smoking.
They run away.  I chase them (because I don't know their names so I can't just report them later)
A group of teachers look at me like I'm mental.
Tell my coteacher what happened...she just laughs.

I caught a group of my middle school students smoking one Saturday evening.
I happened to know one of their names (he was a bit of a trouble makers, so his was one of the very few I knew), so I was able to effectively fake knowing who they all were.
I then proceeded to extort good behaviour out of the entire group for a month or two.   :smiley:

I don't think it's that Alex.  There is a collective 'can't be arsed' with Korean teachers and smoking students.  I mean there is no ultimate punishment here like there is in England.  You get caught in England a few times, you get punished and then you're expelled if you continue.  In Korea, it's almost impossible to expel a student, and they know it.

I used to work in a middle school that was connected to a high school.  The high school boys used to come over to the middle school side to smoke away from the prying eyes of the high school teachers.  One time, after lunch, my gentle co-teacher walked past some boys smoking (on school grounds) and she said they shouldn't do that.   One said, 'you're not my teacher!', to which my co-teacher was upset about.  Wow!  If I'd heard that, it would have been POW! time.  There is just no coyness about it, it is just a brazen FU, which is why teachers gave up.  I used to smoke with my friends when I was fourteen, but A. never at school B. we used to find the most remote secret spot to do it, followed by eating toothpaste etc.   

I also had another middle school boy, who was the county footballer, just brazenly smoking in the toilets, I dragged him out on a  number of occasions to stand outside the teachers' room.  I explained to his home room teacher and he'd just shrug, 'what can we do?'  So I'd leave him outside in the corridor for the whole break-time.  To be fair, he'd never move.  But he just carried on doing it.  What can I do?

My school actually took the issue seriously, enough so that they started testing students' urine for nicotine, lol. Tbf, though, it's because the problem actually got really bad, and students were getting a lot more bold about it and, consequently, many other things. It really was one of those "give them an inch, they'll take a mile" sort of things.

I don't know what happened to students whenever they were caught smoking or failed the urine test, but it was apparently enough to curb the problem, so now it's incredibly rare to catch students blatantly smoking around on school grounds.

My school is also special, though, and it was the first school I worked at here where I witnessed students getting expelled without having to commit an actual crime first. So, there's that.

A boy's school that I used to work at took it semi-seriously in that if you got caught, the punishment would be quick and severe (they always had to kneel by the teacher's office and would often get hit with a meter stick -- hard enough to hurt, but not enough to bruise or cause any damage... and it may sound terrible, but the boys seemed to think it was funny? Then they'd have to spend the rest of the day in solitary confinement). But then the staff would never go looking in known "secret" smoking areas to catch them. Basically, out of sight, out of mind. Just don't do it inside or anywhere a teacher can see you. Heaven help you if you do, though.
