The best way to deal with this is to tell the posters they are being annoying.

"Excuse me, eggieguffer/hangook77/foreverparadise, but could you cut back on the political threads irrelevant to posters' lives in Korea?"

Something like that.

1) If you have a Skype number, and it forwards to your cellphone, the call and the forward count as 2 calls in a row for the purposes of bypassing "do not disturb" on an iPhone.

2) if you have a Skype number from the USA, and live in Seoul, this is not a good thing.

I have US and UK phone numbers through them for business.

People are more likely to pick up or call back a local number.

First two classes of the day went very smoothly. Students all participated, no one was being a dick, got to play fun games to completion. Perfect.

But I kept getting funny looks from all of my students and coteachers. I checked all the usual things, couldn't figure out what the problem was.

Then went into the bathroom and saw this.

WHy DiD noONE TELL MEE!!!

Not really ranting but...

I've been working with a substitute English teacher for the past few weeks and she's so awesome.  Organised, tells me things I need to know in good time, gives me feedback on my work, enthusiastic as hell in our classes, easy to communicate with, motivates the students etc...

I've been in Korea for nearly five years and this is the first time I've worked with a coteacher like that. 

She's leaving soon  :cry:

I'd like to note that while I have started two of those American politics threads, they are perhaps two of the most neutrally-titled ones and dealt with BIG stories (Ford-Kavanaugh Hearings and 2018 Midterms). Also, I made sure to specifically structure the 2018 Midterms ones say as to encourage participation by our non-American colleagues here at waygook.org.

The recent politics voting thread shows 31 for Democrats vs 4 Republicans ... yet most politics threads are started by Trump fans.

They are disproportionately making new politics threads.

Get to school, CT informs me that the schedule has changed. It's going to be:

1st - Free
2nd - 5th g.
3rd - 6th g.
4th - 5th g.
5th - 6th g.

Fine, I sit back for a bit and chill. 9:15, the HR teacher calls and says she made a mistake, the students are one their way.
I scramble to get things ready, it also screws up my schedule as had a listening test planned for the end of the chapter and 20min is not enough time to briefly review and do the test. The IT guy also formatted the computer's HD yesterday and re-installed Windows. What Bill Gates also did was change the f*cking password and not tell anyone what it was. We phoned him and he only got back to us with the password during 2nd period.

Just before the 3rd period, I'm told there's no class and of course, 15min into the period, the other HR teacher calls and sends her students to class, she too made a mistake and forgot the schedule. The schedule has changed again, which basically translates to nobody knows what the hell is going on.

Probably would be having a mental breakdown right now if not for the reassurance I get to attend a concert this weekend. Still have two classes to go, but the worst is out of the way.

It's an Owl City concert by the way.
