Korea: I need you to understand something. If my office is more than 30 degrees celsius, I’m not going to be able to do any work. My brain is cooking. Especially because I’m dressed according to your medieval conservatism standards.
No, no – don’t get me wrong. I do appreciate the fact that we’ve been given permission to turn on the electricity to use the fans. Thanks. Genuinely.
I just also think it’s vaguely insulting that despite a fancy-ass air conditioning unit in my classroom, you choose to only turn it on if the principal is having a meeting there. Never mind the two teachers and 30+ students, noticeably raising the room’s centigrade, are incapable of focusing, teaching or learning, no, no. That A/C must sit there unused until mid-July as you’ve insisted…
…despite the fact that we end classes July 22nd.
So thanks. Really.
Honestly, if you’re not freezing your ass off because the heat’s not on in winter, you’re sweating like a whore in church because these cheap bastards don’t want to “waste the money”. Pardon my French.
