I mean, Korean teachers continue to draw salary while on vacation. If there is camp, additional payment is 25k per hour. For Korean teachers. Nothing for NETs.

Oh so you mean you think you should get extra money on top of your salary? We have different contracts don't we, so it doesn't matter what we are doing at school, teaching or sitting on our arse, we get paid the same.

I'm with you on the 22 hours a week thing though. I think that's why mine is only 4 hours a day. Although I wouldn't say you are working for 'free' just no overtime pay.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

550k per week is the extra money paid to the Korean teacher involved in the camp. And their involvement is often little to none.

If you're working at your main school, or one of your travel schools, and the camps fall in the normal working hours, it's technically just part of your regularly salaried job, so no extra pay.

But if you work for some other school, often they'll try to attract teachers by  basically paying you a wage on top of the one you're already pulling (which is super nice!). If the camp is on a weekend, after school hours, or during your vacation days, then obviously they're required to pay you extra, as it falls outside regular working hours.
 
   Some schools are just super nice (or aren't aware of the differences between KET and NET contracts lol) and pay extra for regular summer/winter camps, but they're certainly not obligated to!

Right, but they are giving up their vacation time to assist. Otherwise there is no incentive for them to do it. It is in our contracts to do it, not in theirs.

But sometimes the K-teacher just comes the beginning of the first day for the opening ceremony, takes a picture, then comes at the end of the last day for the closing ceremony and takes a group picture of themselves with the students again. Should they be paid for that? When the NET does all the work?

Once again, all teachers got to experience the wisdom of our all-knowing principal

What do you do with a perfectly serviceable, covered parking area that's inside the school premises and allows teachers to get out their car and take 10 steps to enter the school building? Well, you get rid of it and convert it into a 3rd playground.
Yes, the school already has a playground and a giant soccer pitch, but lets convert the parking area into a 3rd playground.

So where do teachers park? Don't worry, principals got you covered. All 40-50 staff and teachers are to park on the actual soccer pitch, even inside the goal posts. This way, he prevents the students from doing dangerous activities like play soccer during the pandemic and probably after the pandemic. He also provides teachers with some morning exercises, this morning was particularly refreshing as it rained and all teachers trudged through the downpour and about 100m of mud to get to the main building. I'm sure the pregnant teachers were particularly grateful for his foresight and wisdom.

Other signs of magnificent leadership include deciding to renovate (not an emergency) every toilet in both school buildings, at the SAME TIME, save the toilet in the school hall (on the other side of the soccer pitch). Now, we have around 350 people having to cross a soccer pitch to share 2, 2 cubicle toilets for the next 2-3 weeks. Oh, it's monsoon season so it'll be raining more frequently now.

The only other available toilet is, of course, the one in the principal's office, which only HE is allowed to use. Strange thing is that, as of late, I've been binging on documentaries about completely looney and incompetent dictators.

You've got to wonder how idiots like this get the job. And thanks for confirming what I've always suspected - Korean school principals don't have anything better to do with their time than make strange and arbitrary decisions, just to remind everyone who's boss. Seriously, what do they do in their offices all day?

well i know the one at my old school would just nap on his sofa under the aircon (which he forbade any other classrooms using but his office). in between that he'd have 1:1 meetings with the female teachers and try to make them cry

Another 15 minute section on TV watching Koreans boil and eat instant noodles, while acting like they've never seen or eaten such a thing before. Do Koreans literally NEVER get tired of watching people do the same mundane thing over and over...and over? Mental

Go on DM,tell me I'm just annoyed because my wife won't let me have power over the remote (whereas in reality I'm annoyed because I'm trying to read a book and the slurping sounds they are making are absolutely revolting)

I'm also noticed Korean TV has recently devolved and now they put microphones directly next to people's mouths when they are eating, so you can hear every ****** chewing sound they make in dolby ****** surround sound. Just....why

I’m surprised hear students answer the ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ question with ‘Mukbang YouTuber’. That’s a career? (Unfortunately it is. Some people make a living doing that. Attractive women can get money simply for eating food.)

Do mukbangers trend skinny or “attractive”? My impression was no. Part of their appeal; watch people not particularly concerned with their appearance eat as they wish.

At least it gives me a good excuse to go out an run early in the morning. Also, my daughter’s on a funny daycare schedule now. One week there catching a cold, the next week home recovering — without fail  :cry: (I know, daycares aren’t officially open anyway)

I can't speak for Korean mukbangers, but as far as American ones the food is part of the highlight, but probably 70% of the content is their personality. I started watching Troyce simply because his vid was about eating a whole gator but I subbed him because he was talking about shit in the news and had some interesting takes. Some mukbangers do that- news or entertaiment reviews with food. I subbed Toshpointfro because she had some weird food I was checking out but she's one of those big positivity people in a chill way and after watching her vids it always puts me in a good frame of mind.

Mukbanging isn't easy. It's not just stuffing your face and people watching. They have to work at their content.

Then why don't you just turn it off or ask her to turn it off if it's so annoying?

Some people like the sound of people eating. Some don't. It's like ASMR. Some people like certain sounds some don't. Like I find engine and mechanical sounds almost soothing but I imagine to some people the sound of a purring engine is like nails on chalkboard. Different strokes n all that.

Could be a form of misophonia....

Quote
Similar to OCD, misophonia presents differently in each individual. Misophonia may range from mild (for example, decreased tolerance of certain types of sounds) to severe, excessive sensitivity to specific auditory (sound) triggers. These sound triggers are often highly specific, including sounds emitted in the context of common human behavior such as sounds associated with: chewing, breathing, swallowing, stepping, lip smacking, tapping, and speaking (sometimes specific spoken sounds). In some cases, extreme sound sensitivity, a characteristic of misophonia, is associated with the behavior of a specific individual, such as “my brother chewing,” or “my mother’s voice.” In other cases, the presentation may be more generalized (e.g., all women’s voices, barking dogs) or may include environmental or engineered stimuli (e.g., “the hum of fluorescent lighting, clocks ticking, etc.”).

Individuals with misophonia describe encounters with triggering sounds resulting in discomfort, distress, or anger. Affected individuals liken experience of the sound trigger more closely to irritation, disgust, or even pain, rather than anxiety/fear. The magnitude of disturbance is not necessarily proportional to the duration or the volume of the sound trigger. For example, some children may exhibit an intense outburst when seemingly low-intensity sounds are encountered. The most common behavioral response is the avoidance of and/or withdrawal from sound triggers or situation/stimuli that
are likely to result in exposure to the sound. In some cases, situations or stimuli associated with specific sounds are also avoided (i.e., conditioned aversion), as just the possibility of encountering triggers may result in distress or discomfort. For example, an individual may avoid restaurants because of the high likelihood of encountering chewing sounds. Among youth with misophonia, rage or anger outbursts may occur in the presence of triggering sounds or stimuli associated with sounds (e.g. being in a room full of Halloween candy may trigger an outburst in a child with extreme sensitivity to the sound of opening a plastic wrapper).

I'm always kind of reminded of this when I hear Ricky Gervais talking about being out in public, because he seems to hate any noise made by anyone else.  My dad as he's got older seems less tolerant of noise when we go out.

I just don't get why it's such a big deal. Like, go to another room? Ask her to turn it off? Do something about it other than complaining?

I absolutely hate the shows about parents with their kids. Like, literally can't be in the room when they're on. When my partner watches them, I just go to another room or go wash dishes, or on occasion ask them to watch it some other time.
Everyone has stuff that annoys them.

I'm with you on this. It's very easy to ignore things like that or, as you say, just go into another room. I learned this when I was younger. It was just part of having siblings and a large family.

Yes, they do.  And the ranting/venting thread would be an ideal place to VENT about them.  Pretty sure he wasn't actually looking for solutions or feedback.  That would go against the whole purpose of this forum.   

You know what annoys me?  People that come on to the ranting/venting thread and criticize people for ranting or venting.
