I'm 40ish, and yet still fully aware that on the other side of any keyboard is a living, feeling human being.

Rant/vent away...
I don't think you offend anyone. Except the time you were chastising a dead couple who had fallen to the deaths for not having funeral insurance. While family members were posting in the same thread.

Yeah.  I wouldn't characterize it as you have above, but point taken.

My level of tact and social grace only continues to diminish as time goes by...

I hope many today, especially those that have started a family, have a term-life policy.

If not, do your spouse and dependents a favor and get it today.

Putting them in a position to panhandle isn't cool.

You were pointed to a source, the World Health Organization.  Go learn something.

LOL @ "source", nice google bro.

Now go work 20yrs as a macro-analyst, then spend 1000 hours synthesizing all sources into a coherent theory, using a genius IQ.

isn't ptolemy the one who wanted a separate section of waygook created specifically for non-teachers because he just couldn't bear to associate with us?

i wish we had taken his request more seriously, then he could just go be annoying over there and not here

Why is the game battle ship so hard for Korean teachers to understand, yet if you remove the teacher from the room, and then explain it again to the kids the kids get it in under 2 minutes?

HOLY SHIT YES

"It is too hard, we do not have this game."

Well, I learned yutnori in 3 mins, so................. ...... The kids are brighter than you think.

I hate bomb games. So when I get told to use a bomb game INSTEAD of a cool new game, disheartening to say the least.

My Thursday CT is excellent at classroom management, yet she has one issue I can't stand and I'm anticipating for tomorrow, she doesn't like any kind of detour from the lesson or textbook, no matter how short.

Some of my new students at her school are dying to ask me certain questions like, 'Why do you speak English if you're from SA?' 'Are there cities in your country?' and 'Why aren't you black?'
It takes me 2 minutes to detour and explain the history of SA and shatter years of ignorance.
The 'ahas' I get from students at my other schools are oddly satisfying once they learn the truth.
No... My CT thinks memorizing 'I water the tree at 7 o'clock' is more important.
Apparently, she thinks teaching is testing what they already know instead of learning something new.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; we are not merely English teachers, we are cultural ambassadors. This country is so homogeneous, it's good for the kids to have some exposure to those that don't live the same way that they do.

To shut that down............ just............... .... irks me. This Korean co-teacher irked me.

Oops, wrong thread.

I think you just summed up the entire Korean education system right there.

Hmmm,  you can't even follow an attribution--not my source, not my googling, brainiak.

The "source" in question was "Health Expectancy Indicators" from the World Health Organization.  Obviously your 20 years + 1000 hours trumps their paltry experience ...
