Just had my G3 class at my main school (middle school).
They are really friendly to me outside of class time, but during class, 3 of the girls want to participate, the other girls + the boys, don't want to do anything in class and are super rowdy.
Today, I was trying to get them to quieten down, to no avail. Asked my co-T politely for help, who looked up, shrugged, told me I'm not allowed to do any form of discipline, and then went back to her phone games. She snapped at me when I tried doing the for every 1 min of my time you waste, I'll waste a minute of your time. Team based point system hasn't worked.

After class, she had a long talk with me about me needing to control the students better, even though she admits that she can't do it in her own class. She said they all hate studying, and so are like this in every class. Every other class I have this year is okay. >.<

I always line up with the students. It sets an example, and lining up is something that needs to be installed in society here. If teachers can cut in line what message does that send?
But how can you lead by example when you're standing in the back?

I thought Paypal didn't even work well in Korea...?

I don't mind the idea of a subscription, but I do wish major contributors would have received a personal warning even three days before- "Hey, we're doing this, please move your content offsite so you can have unrestricted access." This is stealing, yo.

I went on a nice trip this weekend but one of the people who went would not shut up. I don’t understand people who feel the need to vocalize every thought and make everything about them. I spent the whole weekend with that chatty Cathy...

I feel you. A friend from high school came to visit me in China and she talked so much, so long, and so loudly that I lost my voice just trying to keep up and I ended up having to take a day off work after she left because I was physically exhausted from all the talking.

Not talking wasn't even an option. I'd tell her we were changing or taking a nap, and she'd shout through the door. Ditto for showering, pooping, etc.

If you are sharing a small space and/or the majority of your time with someone, HECK OFF OCCASIONALLY!

This has been bugging me for a while. It's not a rant. It's more a confused question: why, for the love of Mike, would someone use the recycle bin as a storage folder?!

On-line retailers that allow you to proceed through the cyber-security maze to get your card authorized before telling you that item is on back-order, tying up your credit limit until who knows when.

The kids are forcing me to go full-tyrant today. I get that it's still early in the week, but this isn't Monday, folks. I gotta say that they're a little more quick to respond to my demands, though. The fear spreads. I am The Ahjumma.

Also, I lost a little bit of patience with a male teacher last week. I didn't blow up at him, but I didn't bother to hide my irritation, either, which he fully and completely deserved, and everyone knows it. Didn't stop him from trying to snub me this morning, though. Not really too sure why he would think I give any fucks about him, especially given how rude he was to me on Friday, but I'm going to be all sugar and spice while he continues to make an ass out of himself. Even in Korea with very few people willing to openly admit to it, shit coming from anyone still stinks, and they'll wrinkle their noses at it all the same even if you force them to do it on the sly.

Come in to work feeling  :smiley:, it's a beautiful fall day.

CT: DMZ teacher, Mr. Kim's father passed away yesterday. ㅠㅠ

ME: That's too bad. I remember he mentioned that his father wasn't doing well.

CT: Yes, and tonight all the teachers will visit his house. Can you come?

Me: (I have no other plans. How long could this take, right?) Sure. Where is it?

CT: Good, we will take Ms. Jo's car. His house is in Gyeongju. (We're in Ulsan ~ 1hour away)

Me: (arghhhhhh) OK...

New mood:  >:( >:( >:(

Guess the mods don't want us voicing our dissatisfaction about the change anymore. Will doing so here in the ranting thread be met with warnings/mutes?

haha, yeah, really.

again, they probably didn't close it to try and aggrevate everyone, but stuff like that would make me even less inclined to pay

Ok while a mod is here. Please, instead of policing and muting, can you head on over to the thread "I want to pay-but how". Seriously before you lose a whole lot more of us.

I literally cannot access my own content anymore because of the new paywall issue. I uploaded content more than a year ago (the Where's Wally game) and, because I changed schools, I no longer have it on my computer (I thought I did though). Now, I have to pay to access my own content! I don't have money on my Paypal account so I literally can't pay right now (not that I should pay to access my own things o.O).

Is there a way to search waygook.org users by username?

Did a google search and found an old thread.  He doesn't appear to be banned?  Profile looks normal.

Maximmm is over at the Spam site now.  He said he can no longer access waygook because his ip addresses have been banned.

I'm not sure what a banned profile looks like. According to "Jejujohn77-not-weigookin74" weigookin74 was blocked (banned?) and his profile looks the same as maximmm's...

Hmm.  I guess I thought it would resemble a deleted account where the name would be bolded but unable to be clicked on?  Perhaps the IP addresses have been banned like HabsFanInKorea said.

Pretty sure he's talking about Davey closing the complaining thread. Is a bit frustrating when earlier in the day he said we were waiting on Arsalan but that the conversation could continue.

Sure, I'll be as specific as I can be: Whichever mods have locked every thread about the paywall.
