An End to it All

Poodle Pelham has decided to abandon the blogosphere and concentrate on more terrestrial activities, such as gardening and building up his new international removals business (true!). So this blog will feature no more updates, although it will remain suspended here in cyberspace, as an endearing testimonial to ADWC. To remove these postings would be a crime to education, I'm sure you'll agree.

Over the past few years I have enjoyed depositing my tasty morsels of turd-like toxicity, revealing the numerous scandals, corruption, and typically obnoxious bullying that personifies the ADWC management. However, life needs to roll on forward, in a different place and at a different pace, so 'Poops' here has decided to drop no more anal cup-cakes on these well-visited and highly respected pages. It's all over - woof-woof!

Of course, if any of my followers (past, present, or future) have any exciting stories to tell about ADWC, please pass them on to my better-educated and more dedicated colleague, Suede Oasis. I'm sure that you all know where to find him, but just give a little click here if you don't.

So, it's a fond farewell, and thanks for all the pork. Sorry, I mean fish, of course!

More Tales from the HCT Management handbook

Here's another warning for those unfortunate teachers who are still having to work at ADWC. It's a recent arrival from Kuwait!


It’s taken some time for me to gather the energy and inclination to write this but I feel that the cruel nature of The Claw (Chris Luscombe - Whyte) is amply illustrated by this story from back in the days when she worked at a previous HCT outpost. Basically I was one of three teachers who were sacked by The Claw on the flimsiest of pretexts. However we were soon reinstated upon appeal by a certain trustworthy and honourable individual whose name I’ll not mention (mainly because The Claw never found out about this side of the story and she might still find it in her wicked self to devise a suitably mean and inhuman form of retribution for this person who still works for HCT).

One afternoon the three of us teachers were sat in the Faculty lounge when one of the Admin minions entered the room and informed us that we were needed by The Claw immediately in her office. To make sure we didn’t dawdle we were escorted to the office by a security guard who just happened to be around. In The Claw’s office we were told that a certain matter had been brought to her attention and that we would have to leave the college premises after clearing our desks (half an hour was given for this task). Apparently we had all been involved in unprofessional behaviour on the previous day’s field trip which had involved certain female students and we were thus guilty of gross misconduct.

Of course the truth was nothing like this and the allegations were totally baseless. But The Claw refused to listen to us and had clearly already decided that we were to be dismissed without even hearing our version of events. As the college director was away on business we had no choice but to duly clear our desks and were escorted off the premises – an entirely humiliating experience for all three of us.

Fortunately one of us had a decent connection (read wasta) with one of the locals and we were able to see him that very night and explain the situation. In fact he knew one of the families involved in the so-called incident and was able to verify the real facts immediately. In turn he was able to inform his HCT contact of the matter and we were assured that everything would be resolved the following day. And indeed the next day we were called back to work by the college. No apology was offered to us and we were made to feel that we were lucky to keep our jobs. The Claw never even offered a word to defend her gross and unprofessional behaviour and in fact shunned us all from that moment on. The director made no subsequent reference to the revoked dismissals either.

I’m glad that all of us three teachers are sufficiently distant from HCT and the evil influence of The Claw to be able to make this story public now. In fact I’m sure there are many similar stories to be told about HCT and The Claw. For those who have to work with (or rather against) her, I offer my sympathies – but remember, things will only get better once you are outside the reach of such unprincipled dogs..

Miss Piggy - A fine chop indeed!

Once again we have received comprehensive evidence of just how HCT ungratefully spits out the monsters that the system itself has created. The following e-mail was sent out by the ADWC director, informing everybody that the college had taken the decision to dump Miss P for her own good.

Bless them!

"This is to inform you that unfortunately Jeanette Drissi’s contract had to be terminated just prior to the Eid break. A series of epileptic seizures, which occurred at the Khalifa campus led to serious concerns about Jeanette’s welfare.

These type of decisions are always difficult, but it was felt to be in Jeanette’s best long-term health interests. We thank Jeanette for her many years of work at ADWC and I am sure that all of you will join me in wishing her all the best in her future endeavors".

What's also odd here is that, instead of just pointing blandly to 'health problems', the Director chose to make Miss P's epilepsy public knowledge. Well done again, HCT - why not just heap the humiliation up even further?!
