People keep mixing the order of my names; I find forms so confusing... Last name, Firstname Middle name... so confusing.

Then again, my work experience is notoriously scant :-[   

We probably just come from different walks of life, I think. Agree to disagree.  ;D

Lol, Penny. I apologise.

Dear Hanguks

I turned on the air conditioning and opened the windows and people were really confused by this. Why?

War on Terriorism

A new war memorial in Whitley County misspelled "terrorism".  The blooper-engraved bench was added to a Vietnam War memorial in Columbia City, Indiana, on Tuesday as a way to celebrate veterans of modern wars….

In offices its moronic unless you've got an IceBlaster 5000 and the window is open just a bit so its nice and comfy with just a bit of breeze.

However, there is no better way to drive than with the A/C on full blast and the windows down on a nice dry, hot day. You get all the feeling of the warm sun and none of that nasty sweat.

Same with driving with the windows open a bit and the heater on full blast in the winter. It's like a hot tub in winter.

Last week, my boss who is in his thirties came into the office, sat down and had a meeting with the other employees, many younger than himself.  He listened to them and then made a decision based on what everyone said.  What is going on?

Where the hell is my car?  WTF?  I went shopping for half an hour so parked it with the hazard lights on in the right-hand lane of the busy intersection blocking the ambulance emergency exit and the entrance to the diabetes centre.  When I came back it had gone.  WTF!  Someone stole it.  It is a gray Avante, please help.

That is hilarious, who knew his little fluffy face could hide such a dangerous interior.



The designer sounds like an idiot.  You have one job to do, and you did it wrong!  It looks even worse having 'War on Terr orism'.  Sounds like a rare STD.

I feel this thread needs three sub-threads

1) Serious answers

2) Light-hearted stereotype-based answers (all in good fun)

3) Meta-answers. Like 'Unlike waygook.org which would be filled with threads about how Moon Jae-In is running things and arguing over Donald Trump, hanguk.org would be filled with threads about how Moon Jae-In is running things and arguing over Donald Trump."

I like in this situation the guy imported his car.

My bosses uncles brothers friend didn't talk to me at his daughters wedding. He looked confused about why I was there. How do they make wedding money?


Also, why are the trains so expensive? and I can't understand what people are saying, why don't people in the UK speak American?

1) OMG I cannot figure out the public transport system here.  The men screaming out of the small buses scare me.
2) Why doesn't anyone speak English?
3) These people are so unsanitary, they eat everything with their hands.
4) Thank god these people love fried chicken as much as we do back home.
5) Why is there no indoor heating anywhere?
6) It's so bizarre that people actually swim for fun, why would you do that?
7) I went to the beach and people expected me to go into the water, why would someone do that?
8 ) The internet is like dial up speed. I can't do anything.
9) The women here are so slutty, they wear tank tops and spaghetti strap tops and there is all this cleavage and it is just ridiculous showing off that much skin. And I was told that my skirt was too short for work pffffft.
10) Why are white people trying to tan?
11) I had no idea you could see so many stars at night.
12) OMG the sun is always shining and the sky is so blue. I am spending so much money on skin lightener.
13) Why is everyone so fat?

Didn't know #13 was an issue in SA?

We are climbing up on the obesity bandwagon, but in this particular instance I just thought that our beautiful hourglass figures and beer appreciation "boep pens" will be entirely misconstrued.

My boss got angry that I was only pretending to understand everything he said! I thought I was just being polite by nodding along despite having to ****** clue what he was talking about! What the hell am I supposed to do, ask for clarification?

I forgot what thread I was in and I was going to tell you, "Of course, ask, you knob!"

Why are baked goods and eggs sold in groups of 6? I always have an extra muffin that goes bad. If I only buy 5 it costs me more, and there is sales tax on it!

Why don't Canadian stores include the sales tax on the price tag?  If seams so sneaky. I think it is a foreigner rip-off-charge, but my CT tells me it is not. I don't trust her... she smiles too much.

I see what you did there. And I like it. Korea does, indeed, do many things better than Canada.

why would someone want to buy 5 muffins? just buy the pack. and eat the 'extra' one. 3 muffins a day over 2 days, one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (or afternoon snack). 5 muffins makes absolutely no sense.

if in your strange 5-muffin world you can only ever eat 5 muffins at a time, give the 'extra' one to a colleague and they'll be grateful.

very strange post.

Hey guys it Minsu, i really needs some legal advices.

the other night i was in a nightclub and i saw a white guy talking to a korean girl. it made me angry so i went up to him and told him that he shouldn't talk to 'our' women.

he laughed at me, so i punched him in the face. then i called the police.

but when the police came, they arrested me! what a hell! why do they arrest me and not the foreigner?

I really hurt my hand when i punched him, so i want to sue for medical cost. but police say i can't do that. what a hell!

The fact that you might actually think this how Koreans act back home and the stuff they would talk about is pretty pathetic. I don't think you know this country or its people near as well as you think you do and you need to stop relying on your imagination so much.
