Q: Do you have a Why Teachers Drink File?

I have done some ESL work to help out the Sister in-law
However my job at home involves teaching adult students to use Earthmoving equipment and driving large trucks.
before they get near the equipment they have to do a written exam
Spelling dose not come into it (thank god)
but some of the answers I get to simple Questions gets me breaking out the chewing gum to see who can walk and chew at the same time.
after the first month so far it is about a inch thick already
(not as Thick as Some)
how about you guys
what is the dumbest thing to come across your desk (in writting Female students dont count)

When boys take girls names and when I point it out, they defend their position saying that I only know "American English"...

The ones who ask more questions than you can answer in the class time in the first minute, and then they repeat them every five minutes until you point it out. Then they say you are singling them out because you do not like them, then they do the same thing the next day.

PS. I hope the ones in china do not do that or else I am going to have to say that whisky is part of my culture.

Today I had a kid projective vomit all over two other girls in his class. I had one three year old repeatedly hit my (lovely and highly competent) teaching aide in the stomach, chest and arms then spit at her full in the face. I had a class of four year olds spend half an hour running riot through the hallways chased around by the school's receptionists and TAs, with looks of sympathy being passed around for whoever's problem they were (pre-class, I hasten to add).

As comic relief, I had a potential future FT colleague give a teaching demonstration where he drew what looked for all intents like a dick with balls on the whiteboard then insist it was 'mouth', and got somewhat pissy with me when I laughed my arse off.

At about 4pm, boyfriend and lovely foreign colleague ask "what should we do tonight?". Me: "I don't care as long as it involves beer!!!" The same colleague summed up my day as: "spew, phlegm, balls and dicks. The bodily fluid day!"

Oh, yes, I have a file!!!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
