When I re-watch a show I enjoyed when I was younger, I’ve forgotten how awesome it is or I have the crushing realisation that I liked a terrible, corny show.

You can be proud of your sexuality and still in the closet for your own safety. Not everyone you know has to know that you’re not straight for you to be a ‘good’ queer/gay. Protecting yourself from homophobes is not ‘contributing to the issue’. Do not come out into a dangerous situation with no support network or without any financial independence. If you think someone might out you, don’t tell them shit.

money is like the basic form of reimbursement. if they cant pay their workers, they frankly deserve to lose the schools in the region. like my job sucks but the $$$ keeps me coming back. This isnt a charity.

You’re right. And I feel that way, and a lot of other employees feel that way. This isn’t even the worst company in this business when it comes to crap like this. I mean, It’s great when it’s not one of the times of year when they need me to stay after every day. 

you cant do that tho. you should report them. time worked=money, not more time off. time off=no money. stop working the extra time or make sure you are paid for it. your labor is their profit. its their very least they could do

One of the issues is that I don’t work directly for the people that run my company. I run in a school, and my company want to impress the board of education, so we’re pretty much supposed to say yes to anything and everything or we reflect badly on our company and risk them losing the schools in the region. So if my school expects me to work extra shifts, it’s not my company’s fault, so to speak, that I have to do it. They just really don’t like to reimburse me with money. They prefer giving time off. I don’t know that that’s not legal here, though? 

damn,…. who do you work for????? is this a Japanese-based company or???

As far as I understand, the company is operated and based in Japan, but the people running it are Canadian and US American. I don’t want to jump the gun because maybe they will give me the time off eventually, but yeah. ALTs, or assistant language teachers, are kind of put-upon. They expect a lot from us for not very much money. 

On a brighter note, I found out one of my kids is really into making mechanical drawings. He loves to draw robots and machines, and he had this awesome sketch of the turrets from Portal. He was so excited that I knew what Portal was and that I had played it because it’s not as well-known here.
