I was browsing /r/Teachers and saw somebody post the pay scale for my obscure district in a thread. I looked at their profile and saw they submitted a bunch of pictures with their girlfriend along with other things like complaints against the art teacher in his building etc. I switched to a burner account and messaged them that I recognized him and he should be careful with what he posts online and identifying information. I never got a response back. He did delete the reddit account though.

I hope the dude didn't shit himself. I would hope someone would do the same for me.

I'm already getting pretty tired of this 40 hour a week nonsense after doing almost 10 years of it

I am in the school building only 36 hours a week. The total daily instructional time is 3 hours and 30 minutes. I spend maybe a quarter of that actually teaching. A lot of time on my phone. The teachers laugh about how easy our jobs are compared to other people. We get drunk and laugh about it at our Christmas parties.

I am actually working towards administration so I can work even less. 

Suck it.

i work about 20 hours a week. if i wanted to be based somewhere like southeast asia, or even bali, i could probably work 10-15. i’d have too much free time, almost.

i do think it’s important to have a job and some purpose in life, but the culture of humblebragging over how much of your life you (unproductively) spend to make someone else richer is very toxic and totally silly. ‘i work 60+ hours a week!’ yeah, you’re not being virtuous in doing that. you’re being masochistic. and you’re paying for your manager’s next boat or holiday in antibes.

Even if I didn't get automatic yearly raises and a pension, I could live comfortably on what I make now forever. I make enough to get high and date and still throw some at the stock market.

Life doesn't seem so bad now.

i'm not necessarily talking about you personally. but there have been umpteen studies that working longer hours != being more productive. even in terms of basic attention to tasks and motivation.

and there's a very prevalent culture, especially in junior positions in banking and law firms, of basically living at the office and making a song and dance of it. interns at london investment banks regularly do 60-70 hours a week. they're definitely not working smart or making the most of it. it's basically a ritual of initiation and a part of the office culture's socialisation. and it's very, very dumb.

I'm an evening person, I literally get paid for my off time.

I can snooze through the day, mooch around poking at stuff, people are still blown away by my efficiency and productivity.
Now that I'm a project manager its just mind-bending how little I do during the day.

Then I have the evening free to do my own/family stuff while I'm awake and motivated.

Off work through early next year and only 2 vacation days used (that were use or lose anyway). Definitely the most consecutive time off I've had in quite some time; gonna be weird.

Old boss refused herself because she was the one who recommended me. Probably the toughest interview I've ever had but I think I did well, and I got a thumbs up via text about a half hour after I got done, so I'm sure I did ok.

Now just waiting for an offer letter. Pray for me, mighty stewards of bf2s
Offer letter came in and it was significantly higher than what I was expecting. Total compensation would be about 40% more than my current role. Too good to pass up.

Thanks for your prayers, bf2s. We did it.

I got the vice principal and his secretary little boxes of chocolate for Christmas.

Good career advice I read a long time ago was to always butter up the school secretaries. They are often the gatekeepers to your boss.

I just had to stop a big fight from happening. The situation was totally handled and everyone was calming down. A VP came in yelling at the kids and made the situation way worse. Now the kids are suspended. They didn't do anything wrong. That's total bullshit.

Steady stream of key people leaving my company, my take is the CEO is an oaf.
Up close he's unimpressive.

In other news I survived the trip to south east asia. 18hrs door to door to get there, more to get back, flights were fucked up, basically didn't sleep for ~40hrs. Definitely don't get paid enough for this.

It was like visting minion world, and there were always three of them. Every meeting went along these lines.

"Hey guys, do you think we could do it this way?"
"Dilbert, we'll discuss it. Patooty orang patata, Dilbert tatooty patata?"
"No, tatooty potata!"
"Tatooty potata? No! Tapoopy dum fark ar!"
"Ha ha! Tapoopy dum fark ar!"
"Ha ha! Tapoopy patata dum fark ar!"
"Yes Dilbert, we can do that"
"Thats great, thanks, I love you guys"
"We love you too Dilbert"
