I was delighted with Korea's victory over Germany but now my morning commute has made me hate all the annoying Koreans again.

You were? I was awoken to the sound of cheering, shouting, singing, and soju bottles being smashed in the street. "Oh, God, I hope Korea doesn't advance; I want peaceful sleep going forward," I thought to myself.

Half the A/C units in my apartment are not working.

This morning the tech came back for the second time, and got the one in my son's room back in service... Kitchen, MBR and office still without A/C.

Waiting for parts.

I woke up to a powercut at 3:30. Because, when the power came back on, my sensor light turned on and woke me up. I'm super tired right now because of a short amount of sleep that was also interrupted. :'(

I taught at one school for a few months, years ago. The principal was incredibly cheap, he lorded the aircon on 24/7 in has office but refused to let anyone use it in for more than a few minutes in the classrooms. He had the "brilliant" idea of pouring water on the floor, in the classroom, so it would evaporate and "cool" the room.

I literally just bought a brand new 2,000,000 stand and wall aircon set for my apartment. They installed it. It worked for a few days. Then all the coolant must have leaked out or something, because now it just blows air. And now it's going to take like ten days for them to send someone to fix it. Miserable.

To be fair, last year I lived in a top-floor villa apartment with no aircon at all, and I survived with just a fan, even though it sucked. And this apartment is much cooler than that, so it's still been doable. It's just the humidity that gets me.

Very few education/engineering double majors out there.

yep. in my old school,  there was brand new samsung aircon units installed in every classroom. it was a big school, maybe 60 classrooms. naturally, the principal deemed these new units too expensive to run, so nobody was allowed to use them all summer, apart from himself in his office, of course. he would walk around the school and shout at any teachers who turned the aircon on, then stroll back to his lovely air-conditioned office

the previous principal would let teachers use the air con, but only in the afternoon when it was hotter (which was by the time all classes had finished, and students had gone home). made no sense

Me too, last summer I was in a 5th floor place with no aircon. Tbh it wasn't too bad because I could walk around with  with summer stuff on and during the hottest days we slept on the floor because it was cooler. Don't think I'd get away with that at work though  :laugh:

Please understand the Principal's unique position. He needs to budget for his outings to Noraebangs and drinking overpriced whisky.

Putting ice water behind a fan might help a bit. Water on the floor? I imagine it would just make the room more humid (and possibly damage the floor).

Nice to know it's not just classrooms that experience regular "eh-aw cone" outages.

Even though Korea won their final Group Stage match against Germany, they will not advance to the knockout stages.

I set the air con in the office to dehumidify this morning. Coupled with a fan, it's the best way to cool down on a humid day and doesn't cost a lot of money to run.

Get back from lunch, and somebody has turned off the A/C, which was only acting as a dehumidifier, and opened the windows to let all the moist air back in. How can teachers be so stupid?

It's been decided that, from next semester, I have to run an 'afterschool, but before 5pm, English drama club'.
I get given famous English stories and have to convert them into colloquial style English; and I can't just get a version from the internet either, that is already converted into a play.
They want me to go through the version they give me and do that. It's not allowed to deviate slightly. >.<
The students will be putting on a play for their parents / teachers or something.
