Sounds like the tales my mothers used to tell of working in the early 1970s in a rural school in England which hadn't been modernized much since Victorian times.

I'm surprised the pipes don't freeze up.

It's strange isn't... you'd think this was a poor school, but it isn't. I'll only be working here for 3 years and finish at 5pm every day. Some of these teachers work until past nine at night and are here most of their working lives! You'd think they'd want comfortable working conditions.....

In my in-laws house in winter in the areas that are not heated, such as the hallway to the bathroom or the stairway, you can see your breath when you exhale it is so cold.

It's always warm at the pachinko parlor, baby! Some of those oyajis at your school probably stay warm just thinking about the times they'll have chain-smoking and shooting those little silver balls once they knock off of work.

Hey tornados28, those old Japanese houses are just so cold aren't they! Maybe that has something to do with why the Japanese aren't so bugged about the cold corridors and bathrooms at school.... just a thought....

Hey southofreality, Right you are! Actually, I bet the smoking room at school is lovely and warm too! Maybe I should take up smoking just to defrost a few times a day!
