WTF is it with people thinking native speakers are the weakest link that they can take advantage of?

The cupboards for slippers were reorganised such that I didn't have one. As a result, I got to work on Tuesday to find another teacher's slippers on top of mine. I immediately found a Korean English teacher and let her know how pissed I was. That worked, because the shoe cupboards were rearranged so that I had one by lunch.

Today, I get to work to find them rearranged again, although this time I do have a cupboard. However, there is already a pair of women's shoes and guest slippers in there. They are now on the floor, and they are going to be moved ever increasing distances from the shoe cupboard each time I find them in there. Or maybe I'll just wear my shoes.

Too many foreign teachers act like pathetic little mice in Korea. I wish people would make Koreans realise they can't screw us around just because we don't fit into their retarded 10th century hierarchy.

I wear my shoes, and I quite like it. I was told originally that I needed slippers, but I said everyone walks outside with their slippers, so it is all dirty just the same. They just looked at me. I never bought slippers.

I can't be arsed with slippers anymore. I bought shoes for both indoor and outdoor use, but the truth is I never change them out, and no one has said anything to me about it, yet.

Not a teaching related rant but:
Sweet unholy raptor Jesus do I hate other people. I've gotten back into competitive Overwatch, and while I'm not that good (average as best), I've gone on a massive losing streak (25 losses in a row), most of which could have been avoided with just a bit of teamwork. I've dropped 2 tiers, and have almost dropped a 3rd, because people don't want to work together to try and win, they just do their own thing and ruin things for everyone else on the team. :\
This has put me in a very bad mood the last 2 days. >.<

If your shoe cupboard disappears you have to beat them at their own game...

Step 1: Walk around school in outdoor shoes.
Step 2: Walk around teachers and step on someones toe.
Step 3: Answer any 'why are you wearing outdoor shoes?' questions with 'No shoe cupboard'.
Step 4: Sliding tackle your vice principal as he's getting his morning mix coffee. Make sure you use both feet.
Step 5: Give it the old, sorry, so sorry, are you ok razzledazzle. Slip in a 'No shoe cupboard' in between sorrys.
Step 6: Go outside at lunch and find a dog poo. Step in that.
Step 7: Come back after lunch and recline that bad boy chair like you're the boss and rest them feet on the desk right in front of the nearest teacher.
Step 8: Don't bother turning up for your class. You can't work under this kind of regime where shoe cupboards aren't respected.
Step 9: Call an emergency meeting with the Principal, VP and the head of the Korean ministry of education.
Step 10: Knock a couple dozen Sojus with the boys back and sort this shoe cupboard discrimination out.
Step 11: The Janitor gets fired and his pension is taken away.
Step 12: You get your shoe cupboard back along with your own personal parking space, the entire summer vacation off and a w2m compensation package.

Not yet, but people are hopeful that one might come this year.
On the forums there is a place to look for team mates, but since I play on Korean servers, due to lag playing on 'Americas', I wouldn't be able to find anyone there.
As it is mostly people playing on Americas that uses the forums.

How often do you play, and what role? I play a couple of times a week with some friends, you're more than welcome to join us. We're not particularly good, but we enjoy the competitive modes!

Almost every day, and a tank / support flex. Usually Moira for support, but will probably play Brigitte once she is in comp (have gotten bored of the others), or any tank except Dva (depending on what I feel like / what the team needs).
I usually have a big group I play with, but they have been busy lately, and they can't play again until next week.

She seems OP if you are out of place / your team lets her get close and you are a 200hp hero.
But she is easily killed by range, and if she can't get close to the fights, she is dead weight.

I stopped playing Overwatch several months ago. I know the feel. Even if you have a few friends, it only takes one bad teammate to ruin a game for you. Overwatch is fantastic, but god is it frustrating.

I'd been wearing shoes for a while to provide support for my knee after a meniscal tear and operation. Only the students said anything about it. I switched back to slippers (well, men's sandals) a couple of weeks ago because I no longer need the extra support, and my feet would start to smell in the hiking boots I'd been wearing.

My 6th grade students are really low level it makes me wonder what on earth the previous NET and the KT did for the past two years.
They are just completely non-responsive, totally uncooperative, 98% of each class just doesn't participate at all. I keep things simple for them, because they are low level, I use activities that have worked perfectly fine with other classes in other age groups and other schools but they won't follow even basic instructions.

This is going to be a long year... Every activity I toss at them just has all the fun sucked right out...

We have a student who had an English for the whole year until last week. She has always hated the name, didn't pick it for herself, and finally said that she wanted to change it. We've all switched and started calling her by the new name, except one teacher who is antagonizing her, calling her "Not-new name." It's making her grumpier in his class and just making her upset.

Some people are just jerks.

I had a friend named “Jenny” in junior high.  That is her legal name; it isn’t short for anything.
There was a teacher who would repeatedly ask if it was “Jennifer” or “Genniveve”.
