I believe Big Blooming Blighter is on his way out of town to his first teaching assignment tomorrow, if not today. Let's wish him well.

Blighter, pay no attention to nay sayers.

Will you have internet access to update us on your dismal sojourn into the inner station of the ultimate horror?

I doubt it. These centres tend to restrict internet to education sites or a school intranet, and none of them permit using the internet for personal, non-educational/work-related use.

I guess you don't have a laptop you can take? We'd like updates if possible. :nod:

He doesn't have a laptop. I'll post his text messages as they come through.

Rob is unhappy. The promised evening meals are unavailable, and he has to share a floor with his (teenage) pupils, with no other adult on the floor.

To be fair to him, that is incredibly unprofessional and quite disgraceful from the organisation organising the whole thing, but let's taunt him anyway. :yup:

Let's also taunt him for not living in a country where they allow smartphones so he can openly whine about such squalid working environment. :yup:
