It's too fuckin hot, and our office has no air conditioning and one tiny window. :( I'm sweating buckets just typing :( At least it's my duty day today, so in a bit I can go stand in the nice cool corridor and educate the year 11s in music....and shamelessly plug my band :oops:

-We throw away 1.2 million sausages a day in the middle of worldwide food shortages

-They've uncovered some lost Picasso's that are essentially children's drawings

-Boris Johnson bans alchohol on the tube

Having to deal with a stupid fuckwit of a parent who would like me to let her son out of my lesson to go the toilet whenever he needs to, without having consequences, because he has a 'condition'.
So now im to deal with all the kids saying it aint fair as he's allowed out and they have to stay at the end if they want to go. Accordingly i denied him the chance to go even after he offered to make the time up- complete lie, now she wants me to apoligise to her son for upsetting him, no chance!
Oh and my rules i impose on all my classes are wrong. Secondary school kids should be allowed to go the toilet whenever they ask, even if they have just had a lunch break or its two mins before the bell as thats their rights, but i dont get special privaleges to leave the lesson whenever i want to go the toilet.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr stupid woman

Just think of the number of cartoon-stereotype dogs that those sausages could feed.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

Somewhere in the ten minutes between taking it out of the machine and actually wanting to spend it I managed to lose a tenner.




Hopefully whoever found it is somebody that really needed it.

If you've got to go, you've got to go. Do you want kids wetting themselves?

And if you deny a kid with a medical condition permission to go to the toilet whenever, then you/your school is breaking the disability discrimination act.

Just saying like.

Window? Luxury.

What really got to me today was realising how jaded I am, in my job and life in general. There's absolutely bugger all to look forward to.

Problem is %90 of the time it's just kids who want to go and mess around in the corridors and disturb lessons to go see their friends. In the real world there are times that you have to hold it. A single lesson is an hour max, perfectly reasonable time to hold it, especially of they've just had break.

If it's a medical condition, then yes, it is fair enough BUT teachers should be made aware of it BEFORE the kid even enters the classroom, and trying to explain it to the other kids isn't easy.

The weather forecast being wrong. It said hot and sunny, so I rode into work, rather than getting the tube -- and then the rain started :-(
