Things at work have been crazy this week. Our new teacher, who started last week, just quit. Her Grandma died suddenly and when she told the school she was leaving and wasn't coming back, things went from bad to worse. The school doesn't believe that her Grandma is the real reason she is leaving and they had a meeting with her where everyone ended up screaming. The new teacher went home and the Korean teachers went to chase her down. They tried to secure a key to her apartment and had every intention of evicting her onto the street. Too late. By the time they arrived, she had packed her bags and left. It was stressful and very tense around the office. We were supposed to have the welcome dinner for our new staff last night but it was cancelled. Mainly for lack of the new staff.

Hmmm, at least they didn't hold her down so she couldn't leave. True story.
Or try to beat her senseless in the middle of the street when she tried to leave when her contract was up. Another true story.
Or kick her out of her house 2 weeks before her contract was up b/c she refused to extend her contract for another year. My true story.
Moral of the story: if you want to leave, don't tell them. Just leave.
