Might have been his way of hitting on you. ;)

That might be even sadder.

So, last week I got take out wings for dinner twice from a place across the street from me. The second time I went the clerk was like "oh, you were here before". Tonight, I decided to go to the Pita Pit also across the street from me. The guy there was all ""hey, it's been awhile since I've seen you, how are things?"

I don't think it's a good thing that multiple fast food employees in my area recognize me.

Before the baby arrived, I used to hit the mall chick-fil-a to fill my pockets with chicken on my way to a day at the AMC theater. One day I noticed the shift manager had gotten a haircut. He looked pretty freaked out when I mentioned it.

Maybe he thought that was your way of hitting on him. ;)

Being out of work has really got to me this week. As I've heard of other people who I've worked with getting jobs, it's really hitting home that I'm unemployed.

I've managed to get a bit of supply teaching - 21 days in total since September, which is pathetic considering that I've had four weeks out of work in four years since I qualified, up to Sept 2011. I refuse to do cover supervisor work, unless the agency are desperate, as I would be expected to teach and mark work but only get paid half what I would get on teacher rates.

At least three local authorities around here won't pay for a supply teacher for day to day work, and I've had numerous trial days for various schools, which has amounted to bugger all.

I've sent off at least 15 application forms and had one interview since September.

At the minute, money isn't too much of a problem but it's getting depressing thinking that I want to move out of here and save up for our wedding.

OK, whiny rant over. I know some of you have been out of work for longer. It's just been a tough week :(

I'm pretty sure this is against union rules. Please let your union rep know which schools are doing this.

And after the week I've had, fancy moving down to Leicester and covering me for a while? :D And parents' evening next Monday.

It is against the rules, but I know of at least three schools where HLTAs and cover supervisors plan, teach, assess students work and write reports. The schools know it's wrong and the union reps in the schools are aware of what is going on. Do they do anything about it? Do they fuck!

There is a growing army of cover supervisors and HLTAs taking over the jobs of teachers in many schools, which of course completely undermines the professionalism of teachers. Eventually this will lead to the lowering of teachers pay and remove the need for QTS to teach in any school. The unions allowed CS into schools with the removal of teachers covering others in times of absence. Pandora's box has been opened ...

I still think you should contact your local union. That's totally out of order. If the head is condoning it I'd write to governors too and get them fired.

My Kid took my iPad2 today to play with and it flew right out of its casing and landed face side down. I just wanted to cry. It now has a few shallow scratches and two deep cracks/scratches. All of them are on the top and bottom, but still... :(

My best friend all through school from kindergarten to high school... just posted pics of his brand new baby.
I did not even know she was pregnant!
And we live in the same damn town. :(
I am really, really bad at keeping in touch with friends.

I can have in-depth discussions with informed opinions about virtually every program in the Disney, Jr line-up.
