I have to wonder, why is it so incredibly difficult to buy a broom, mop, or other stick-like cleaning implement that both a) is full length, and b) has a non-telescoping handle?

I know these things exist, because most schools have them. But search for consumer products, and it is exceptionally difficult to find anything that matches those two requirements.

Help us, BasedGod. TYBG.

People still die and get married and stuff. It also contributes to the money given to teachers and staff when they leave to a new school.

I wouldn't complain about paying into it, since you were literally a beneficiary of it just two years ago.

What I said was I don't mind...but I have paid for it already for 2 years.....and there haven't been any deaths, births, marriages, school dinners or anything since January (we get announcements about each of those things)  and I am literally leaving in a month......so if money was needed for any of those reasons no problem, I will gladly pay....but there has not been and if they were planning to give me anything for leaving....then just let me keep my own money instead of transactions back and forth because in that case I'm paying 100,000 won for 20,000 in return?

Point system revised for residency visa

Expats baffled and enraged

Another change? Not long ago was this:

F2 visa changes disrupt foreign residents' lives
https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2020/01/177_281802.html

Why is the Korean government making it harder and harder to get and keep the F2 visa?

Can't believe it! My 4 year granddaughter just cut up our new-ish duvet with her baby scissors. Made incisions right along the length of one side and around the corner of a short end. Looked lovely. Totally my fault for saying she could trim a piece of stitching that was hanging down.

I am hoping that Colbuurrrrrn gets booted off of this site, fast.  I really cringe whenever I see a post of his because I know it will be possibly intolerant, ignorant, and hateful. 

Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

Also, don't you get any unused money back?

I've been here for 12 years, and most years someone from the office comes around with an envelope, a nice 70-100000 W inside. 
Mr. C is not a bad person, in fact is quite a good person here. One of the best people on this forum if you really look at it

That's your bribe Mr C....   :wink:

Same here.  If no one really gets married or dies during the year, then there is usually a rebate of some such.

Stoat, that is just stirring.  The post as it stands now and what she wrote originally really aren't that different.

I've only gotten a refund once in 5 years and usually my schools didn't make me pay because I was only there a few days a week, but it's just that I am leaving the school soon and I know there wasn't anything that the money had been used for...so why make me pay it, just to give it back.......but if there is a need for it between now and when I leave, sure I'll pay.....

The mods (there are only 3 or 4 active ones) don't read every thread. Especially not over the weekends. If something is against the TOS and it bothers you, rather than complaining about it here, PLEASE BRING IT TO THE ATTENTION OF A MOD USING THE "REPORT" FUNCTION so that it can be dealt with.


... although I suppose then one would then have nothing to rant about, which would suck.

I did. The post was still there, although now it appears it has gone. That's getting on for 5/6/7 times now and no real action. One wonders...
