Typical Korean b.s.

Yesterday our morning classes went on a field trip for some sort of sex-ed presentation. We native teachers didn't go, but we still had to come into work at 9 a.m. to clean whiteboards. How long do you think it takes four teachers to clean eight whiteboards? The answer is not three hours.

So I brought in my laptop and cranked out three travel articles for a new Web site, 1122 words in about an hour, and I was feeling sluggish and uninspired.

As it turns out, the spray cleaners we were given to use on the whiteboards should absolutely not ever be used on whiteboards. After a single writing on the newly cleaned boards, the erasers fail to erase anything and now leave horrendous black streaks worse than any ink accumulation *before* the so-called "cleaning." Super.


  1. whatever that spray is, they must have used it once at my old school. I left one friday with perfectly good boards and came back on Monday with terrible, impossible to erase boards....

  2. Oh blimey, that made me chuckle! Typical Korean BS indeed.
