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 second that. Until you change that damn picture, I couldn't care less about your crappy job.
"If you're not interested in changing where you work (and thus the student population, obviously) then a) your success at applying various and sundry teaching techniques is unlikely to have anything to do with how effective they are in general, and b) your sweeping generalizations about Thai students serve no purpose but to fuel your inertia and your feeling of being an 'insider'. Sadly (for you) few who read your sweeping generalizations will perceive it that way, but hey if it makes you feel good, knock yourself out." -zeusdogg
There..I've put a shirt on...happy now?
Now about my crappy school....
I like the one without the shirt better.
Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.
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
Never raise your hand on a student... it leaves your groin unprotected!
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.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.

Some people have just a tad of masochist in them!!
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.Originally Posted by podge
Their second fight over two years, after the controversial draw. Rumpole is out of his corner and hits AO with a jab, a right and a left and AO is down 1,2,3,4.....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.
Third, actually. Take me up on my offer on the other thread. None of this fingerprint scan or signing in crap here!
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???
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
