Staff meets could be classified as every ADD persons worst nightmare. On a good week, it is ONLY four hours of my fellow teachers rambling in German. The bad weeks it lasts until nearly 8 o'clock, meaning I've been sitting there trying to understand the quick speaking Germans for almost six hours. Miserable does not even begin to describe it.
Most people probably complain about staff meetings because they hate their co-workers, which, thankfully, is not the case here at the dragon school. I really enjoy the people I work with and we get along really well during the week, but on Wednesday afternoons by 4pm, I am ready to punch the next person who brings up a new topic for us to discuss.
So, I know I could have worse problems in my life, but on when I am about three hours into a meeting that I have not understood more than 20% of, it is hard to imagine anything more painful.
