she’s heavy and she ain’t my sister.

the golden rule of surviving a 1-hour school assembly: never choose to sit behind a weight-challenged teacher. just because your good self, who’s also slightly *cough* “weight-challenged”, knows how to properly sit without taking up people’s leg space, doesn’t mean the said teacher who is “slightly more” challenged in the weight department knows how to as well.

that said, it’s only 5 more days til i leave this school.

this face doesn’t care.

more reasons to add to my endless list of “why i hate this school”.

the teachers had a pot luck in the staffroom yesterday for one of the teachers leaving for a 1-year course. they bought food, cakes, etc. today, the whole kitchen and eating area are littered with bits and pieces of food and trash from yesterday’s do.

we have a couple of cleaners who come every morning to clean the staffroom ie sweep, mop, take out the trash. that’s all they do, really.

so today, seeing the ‘extra’ amount of work they had to do, they decided to bitch about it to me. cos i happen to be the nearest to the entrance (damn.)

“like little girls ah.” the cleaner said, pointing to the dirty kitchen and eating area.

“if my employee sees this, she will say ah, i didnt do my work.” she continues.

i just gave her a half-smile and screamed in my head, “I DONT FUCKING CARE LAH BITCH. JUST SWEEP AND SHUT THE HELL UP”

cos, 1) i have freakin’ stomach cramps. and i have to stand in front of the classroom the entire day, handling children who are born to be monkeys. so don’t come and complain that your job wreaks.

2) i have a freakin’ headache from lack of sleep. and that makes me bitchier than usual. so, no, i don’t care about your job woes.

That’s one.

And then there is this particular male worker in the office who continually makes me uncomfortable by ‘playfully’ greeting me or acknowledging me whenever he sees me. that includes smiling like a sexed up old perv when he sees me, ‘playfully’ trying to stop me from shaking my pen when i’m trying to think of what to write in my lesson plan book, making inappropriate (and disgusting) flirting gestures (yes, may i hear a collective “EWW” from the audience please.), etc.

What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that can occur at work, school uni or in social settings. Sexual harassment in the workplace is any form of unwelcome sexual attention that is, or that you find, offensive, humiliating or intimidating that occurs anywhere you carry out any task for your employment.

Sexual harassment can be written, verbal or physical. Both males and females can be the victims of sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment can include:

  • Unwelcome touching, grabbing or other physical contact
  • Comments that have sexual meanings
  • Asking for sex or sexual favours
  • Leering and staring
  • unwelcome flirting
  • Displaying rude and offensive material, e.g. calendars, cartoons
  • Sexual gestures and body movement
  • Sexual jokes and comments
  • Questions about your sex life
  • Sex based insults
  • Criminal offences such as obscene phone calls, indecent exposure and sexual assault.

i feel violated in every sense of the word. if this isn’t sexual harassment at the work place, then i don’t know what is.



damn the school.
