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!

Curse you, Red Baron!!! (Shaking fist at the sky!)

Hey Poops, I heard that your 'international removals business' involves human trafficking - is that right?

Tayeb Kamali said...

Here's another knee-slapper!

It's at least the third video presentation where I've heard him say "Here, (fill in the blank), is where my wife, Kaye, and I want to settle down and retire.

Upon viewing this last interview, I fired the dog...

Poops, you should be grateful for all the bones (of info) that we've tossed your way over the years!

'Poops' will only be grateful when HCT throw HIM the bones that he reckons they still owe him.

Could be a long wait, eh, King Tubby?

We'll miss U, PP!!

Anthony J.Solloway said...

A wise move, PP.Now that I am running the show, your days were numbered anyways. Thanks for all the info on contributors that the site has provided. I shall us them to decide who goes and who stays.

Raja Karma said...

My feeling is that YOU won't be around for too long either, AJS. "All over by Christmas", I'd say!

Anthony J.Solloway said...

@ Raja Karma

I've already worked out who YOU are, Raja Karma. Start packing your bags my lad! When Anthony J. Solloway gets going, you'll get going!

Yeh, he's that guy who washes your car for 5 dirhams at the ADWC car park!

Raja, I mean, not Solly...

Sceptical Tunbridge Wells said...

The Anthony Solloway story so far then is:

1) Anthony Solloway starts a malicious website.
2) Anthony Solloway is arrested in the UAE.
3) The UAUE University Watch site reports that Anthony has died in custody.
4. Anthony Solloway rises like Moriarty from the dead.
5.Anthony Solloway becomes a record breaker on Punch in the Facebook.
6. Anthony Solloway is hired to run education in the UAE.

Am I the only person for finds this far fetched?

In the UAE, being an incompetent nut-job are essential requirements for administrators. Anthony Solloway will do well.

Quite a few HCTeachers share those attributes too!

Ah, hell! Time to throw down...or up, depending on how much you like looking at that skank!

An end to it? Not at all!
Congrats to ADWC for getting rid of another director and associate director after 2 and 1.5 years of service. The chairs are shaking in their pants. Why don't they fire those chairs, the real backstabbers and unprofessionals, who also conform to every new director?
HCT is really, really a strange place.

HCT refugee said...

Absolutely true. Images of a dysfunctional family, or even the Adams Family, come to mind when thinking of ADWC.

Unless you really are desperate for income, just give the place a very wide berth.

Anonymous said...

Like the word "dysfunctional family" at ADWC. Someone said "Hunger Game"

To Anonymous (June 29) ... absolutely agree

Salaries are about to be 'slashed', I hear.

Any confirmation of that?

Both housing and salaries to be cut.

Anonymous said...

Probably very true. Salaries and housing heavily 'trimmed', and larger classes too.

Time to LEAVE!!

Anonymous said...

It's all going belly up. Anyone with a shred of self respect and dignity would leave this traumatic and abusive environment.

Anonymous said...

No, not true. Anyone with an ounce of self-respect and dignity would have left years ago, when the the writing was still fresh on the wall.

Now it's too late. You'll get shafted as soon as you put in your notice now. And serves you right too!

All hail king kamali and his minions

Absolutley agree to June 29 and July 15. Also thanks to all your comments and posting because those who are considering to join HCT can learn. Those who are planning to join HCT, READ ALL and THINK CAREFULLY. Anyone with the integrity would never join or leave as soon as he/she arrives unless you are desperate for money.

Tayeb Kamali said...

O.K, O.K., O.K., look...

I've kept quiet while rumours of my demise, albeit premature, have been bandied about on this, so-called "internet engine".

Well, I can take it no longer! I am losing sleep thinking how upset people seem to be over my firm hand on the tiller of the HCT yacht.

So, here it is: I have instructed my very capable aide-de-camp, Senthil to forthwith pay out any HCT/CERT employee who wishes to separate from our fine set of institutions.

Furthermore, I have pledged to issue comprehensive and stirring references for all who want to avail of this offer.

ACS stands ready to receive your separation requests.

Anonymous said...

HCT yacht? more like The SS Hellboat. Have you reverted to your policy of firing people who are taking lunch breaks or using the washroom TK?

Tayeb Kamali said...

No, that's what Associate Directors are for.

Anonymous said...

And so that leaves you free to terrorize low level clerks and security while petting your poisonous cobra Senthil on the head...

That's about the size of it.

Whoa! You're way too switched on to be working for me!

You wanna job?

Byron said...

Oh my God, and so begins another season of pretending to teach in a pretend college. Can I take anymore of this? I doubt it very much...

Benny said...

At this point the HCT is in a death spiral. The HCT has always had management issues, but never package/contract issues. Clever but cynical people did their jobs and lived their lives, which is why you never saw much on this forum apart from malcontents. However, new management has translated into serious problems. It's November and there is no info about new contracts or packages. Stay away until things are sorted. You've been warned.

Anonymous said...

Absolutely right, Benny (above). The new management have even decided to fire Steve Munns!

Tayeb Kamali said...

They can't fire my Stevie-boy! What will become of his sweet-tart, Jo the Pro???

Anonymous said...

Off to the knackers yard, where she belongs!

Suede Oasis said...

OK, so what's the news on the new contracts offered to ADWC inmates? Any surprises?

Wiser by Half said...

So, what can I say about HCT? My college used to be a decent place to work at, which is probably why I stayed there for six years. But I quit when the management changed dramatically and the place became a toxic environment for teachers.

In short, it's no place for real teachers now, and HCT is rapidly becoming a magnet for those who are pepared to dump any true educational values that they might have once possessed.

The incoming 'Chair' had no clue about syllabi and motivating teachers to give their best, but acted as if she had invented the very process of teaching. Even worse, experienced teachers came to be treated very harshly, with the least experienced being given the most responsibility.

So if you have indeed lost your teacher's soul, HCT is very probably the ideal place for you. But if you have just a single ounce of dignity and integrity left, give this place a very wide berth and find something better.

Dear Readers,

I have received a few requests to bring this blog back to life.

Do any of you have any preferences aboout that?

Salut!

PP

Anonymous said...

You abandoned us. Why should we rally to you. A person of conviction would have kept the blog alive. Now, it looks like a load of whingers...

Poodle Pelham said...

OK, fair comment. But if anybody from ADWC does have any 'interesting news' to share, I'd be happy to publish it on this site still.

See y'all

PP

Suede Oasis said...

You're welcome to come back, Poops. I could do with some company round here. Cyberspace can be SO lonely!

Poodle Pelham said...

Wow - another 350 attempts to log into this blog from Russia this week!
Somebody sure is trying REAL HARD to take this site down - but they will NEVER succeed!
