Making USS car auctions/sellers take responsibility for their mistakes has to be one of my greats for today. Ive been screwed by these fuckers so many times. Some nong wrote the wrong description about a car and ended up copping my request for a partial refund. Its justice after all the times they screwed us!

I was messing around in the garden and I noticed a dog walker hanging out having a gander out of the corner of my eye. I live in a geriatric farming community so I figured one of the obaasans was checking out my ass. About a minute passed and the dog walker said konnichiwa. I looked up and saw the hottest woman I've seen in a long while! I'm making it a point to be out in my garden every day at 5:30 so I can see my new friend!

Met one of the assistants from the last job for a chin-wag over coffee yesterday, filled her in on the details she didnt know about my leaving and corrected the "mis-information" the boss had fed her. Then she told me that when theyd had their meeting for their assigments for the new term, as usual they were asked which teacher they preferreed to work with, and they all said "Langslave!". She went on to say they all agreed I was a calming presence for them while I was there (as compared to some of my foreign brethren...), and the whole mood of the place was quite dark and down now. Cheered me up a tad that did.

Wonder how the ex-boss will think about your absence.

Reminded me of a former job where the boss complained about a very popular teacher who left and "stole" some of her students and started his own school. Gee, maybe you could have done something to keep him as your employee...

Unfortunately shes not someone capable of looking at things objectively, and cannot imagine that shes ever wrong about anything, so shell just carry on as before and probably piss off more people even more in the process. While I was talking to the assistant yesterday too, it became evident that of the last 5 F/T foreign teachers thatve left there over the last 4 years, all but one left in a similar frame of mind. I remember the last two guy having regular slinging matches with the bitch. But she never learns. She has absolutely no "people skills" as the term goes these days. I wish her nothing but the worst.

Walking stereotype, that sort of eikaiwa owner. I have written of my experiences with such employers in TGTBTU. Funny, they both thought they were "unique". Being a short-sighted, criminal control freak is hardly unique in this industry. Sad.

Back in the Nova days almost all the managers we had were women (I recall only 2 men but maybe 11 women) and on more than one occasion a student would say having a female manager must be hard. But I had almost no trouble with any of them, quite the opposite in fact. Maybe 2 were problems. Most of them were nothing like this cow. And yes steki, a lot of it is about control..."her will be done".

"She Who Must Be Obeyed"? I remembered you are a Hammer fan.

My last eikaiwa gig had a male owner and we talked about the differences between female and male owners. Talking stereotypes here, but female owners seem to have more of a maternal drive to "protect" (control) their investments. Men seem to be better at "hunting" and having a wider perspective on the situation.

I personally prefer working at larger companies, as the general bureaucracy can create some consistency and no one person can run a fiefdom.

Thats exactly the word..fiefdom. Thats how she runs the place. The king above her has bestowed this place on her, and she runs it as she sees fit. Better stop griping in here I spose.
When you say Hammer, do you mean Sledge Hammer? Ill have to go and dig him out and give him a watch, havent done that for ages. And I have a cuppla episodes of Duckman somewhere.....
