    Oh and did I mention the rather complicated system of thumbdrives on which we are all issued and what we are told to put our scores on.

    All the staff computers had a database program installed and you insert the thumb drive and via a complex system of menus enter your scores. The joke is that it would have been so much easier to make use of the schools Intranet and enter scores through that instead of shelling out 200K+ on these tempremental flashdrives, which lost more than 3 people's scores in our dept alone. Barmy!

    I like the one without the shirt better.

    My school is still doing the old fashioned way. We sign and we sign out. And our administrators aren't too much demanding. And we get our pay on time. :D

    when the school year begins, my boss approaches me about once a week to sign in...he tells me to write in 830-1600, no matter when i come in...after a couple of weeks, he forgets to remind me and i end up signing for the whole month on the last day of the pay period...

    I hope our signing in policy will remain the same as the summer, every other day, and put in 8a and 5p.

    I can't believe anyone would lower themselves to swipe in and out everyday like a factory worker.

    If you all refused to do it then I doubt it would last very long......

    This is an absolute disgrace and I would never work for a place that implemented such a system. Only in Thailand would this happen and you degrade yourselves by putting up with it.

    I will pm you for the details, but the wife makes over 3 times my salary here mate. I do have to sign now 3 times a week. But I can still take mondays off, teach tuesday, wed, and thursday from 8 till 2:00. Then Wednesday and Friday from 10 until 3pm. Plenty of time to drop and pick the kids up so what the hell.

    You take care mate.

    When it comes to the job, only if you dont have a punch. You just lay down and let them count you out. But all in all my life here is great, but will change in 3 years when the kids hit junior high.

    If you're there on time etc. what's the big problem with signing in??? It's not good or anything, but hardly like the end of the world???
