Got caught up in some work and forgot about the time, and now lunch is about a minute away and I don't have time to use the restroom before my coT shows up.

That is better than it being 12:30, and you just found out that there is no lunch today, and everyone already is out at lunch...somewhere... :huh: :rolleyes:

This assh*le of a HR teacher has his 3rd grade students already waiting outside my classroom 2min before the bell rings to signal the end of the class I'm currently teaching. This is the 3rd time in as many weeks he's done it and it'll damn sure be the last.

but as an adult I think you're allowed to go to the bathroom when you want.

If you do upside-down bingsu, it may be easier. Have them in a line go to each station and put their toppings, and then lastly get the ice, and send them on their way. Just a thought. I have no idea if it would be any better, but it may work.

It's all in the prep- Tablecloths, toppings in wide-brimmed containers rather than narrow jars, plastic gloves, servig ladles/spoons, etc.

Use tongs rather than spoons to add toppings like dduk, jelly, canned fruit.

It's always a bit ironic when traditional Korean foods are made for an English festival. It's like opening the texts and seeing in-depth explanations of Korean places, customs, and history.

I get why it's done, but...  :rolleyes:

That' true, and we've done all that which has helped...but kids are still kids. There is always one that still struggles to use a spoon  :laugh:

Yeah me too. I'm pretty sure it's just because someone wanted to buy the ice shaving machine thing so the school could use it in the future and it's a good excuse.
Anyway I guess it's easier to teach them things they sort of already know.

Way to muddy the waters of my cultural-linguistic righteous indignation!  >:(

I'm all for not letting expensive crap go to waste! And yeah, I agree: why teach an old dog new tricks when you can just make it do the same one in a different language -- 2 birds with one stone!

     I remember when I made real honest to goodness tacos with my rugrats last summer. I had absolutely everything wrapped in plastic, prechopped, Tupperwared away. The kids had giant smocks, disposable gloves, face masks, everything. It was awesome: they looked like workers in a quarantine zone!
     But... well... I shouldn't have bothered. When we were done, the kitchen needed to be hosed down and I was seriously considering lining the kids up and having them slowly file past the hose as well. Was a great day, though!

Yeah, but I eat lunch with my coT, and I don't want to make her wait outside the bathroom for me unless I have to. xD I had a whole period beforehand to take care of business, I just got lost in my work.

@ Aristocrat: That would piss me off, too, wtf.

In her infinite wisdom, our MOE supervisor has planned a trip for the NETs and CTs for tomorrow.
We have to be at the education office at 12:40 sharp. The supervisor has also sent a message to my CT instructing that NETs are not allowed to leave before the end of 4th period... So, I've got to teach till 12:20, skip lunch or going to the loo, to rush to the education office by 12:40, endure a 90min bus ride, enjoy a wonderful cultural trip of being told how great Korea is for the next couple of hours... in the rain and no lunch, eat mystery dinner and arrive back at 930pm.

Wake up for school the next day.

Don't forget to claim overtime for the trip. I'd just turn up late, on purpose.

On the bright side, I get to reaffirm my belief that Korean culture has no redeeming qualities anymore. Every one of my 3 CTs who are attending (it's not optional) have told me that everyone thinks her schedule is ridiculously stupid, but nobody dares criticize. A person in charge could declare that 3+2 = 6 a nobody would dare question it... if/when said person in charge does get called out, they'll simply blame an underling.
