Somewhat relevant.  I get annoyed when some Koreans assume I can't read hangeul at all because I can't decipher cursive as well.  Maybe if it wasn't chicken scratch, I could read it just fine.  Lemme scribble some English cursive and see how well you do  :rolleyes:

This shit is nuts. Annoys me as well

You must not be very fluent in Korean. If you were, you would be able to read Korean handwriting without problems.

Some of these people are university educated folks who are still using an incorrect spelling. Does it matter? Do I assume they can't speak English because of that? So silly.
I know exactly what you're talking about. Even here on Waygook, a site filled with university educated folk, a constantly see simple words spelled incorrectly. Super basic words! Stuff like "theatre", "colour", "centre", "axe", "traveller", and "Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis".   :wink:

After reading the last few pages...I think I'd rather have dinner with a bunch of slurping hacking ajosshis, than the waygook Korean grammar Nazi crowd. At least I'd be able to eat, get drunk and watch the ballgame with only occasional noise interruptions rather than a constant stream of babble in the background.

Congrats on making the Koreans in the first few pages seem not quite so bad.

I don't think it would be fair to attribute this practice specifically to Koreans.

It just so happens that I live in the ROK.

I mean, people are pointless, and they are bound to annoy the life out of me wherever I am ;)

Just today, I was minding my own business, relaxed, engrossed in my garden, and my neighbor had to come outside to smoke, spit, etc.

Thanks A-hole :)

1.) Spitting in front you
2.) Casually littering around you
3.) Complete and utter lack of spatial awareness, ie texting and walking in all different directions so that I have no choice other than to bump into you or step on your feet, standing in the middle of walkways so I cannot get by, etc etc.
4.) Brushing by someone without saying some version of "excuse me," in Korean or English.
5.) Teeth sucking

I think some historian discovered that in the 14th century a Korean actually said excuse me, but there was some debate regarding the accuracy of his research.

I hate when Koreans freak out when they see ear wax!

Europeans have moist earwax that most Koreans don't have which causes a freak out once in awhile.

I'm pretty sure I've never exposed my earwax to a Korean... or anyone not my mother. I would probably also be freaked out if I saw your earwax...

Do you also show them your snot or your bumwipes? 

I generally don't go around showing that stuff to people.

If you can't spell a basic word, I wonder how good your Korean really is. Maybe there's another reason(besides your race) why they are speaking to your SO rather than you.

And you think... what? That native Koreans are immune to misspelling their language's words? Plus 외 and 왜 aren't exactly dissimilar.

Of course people can misspell words. However, if you're claiming to speak a language and you make a basic mistake, one can't help but wonder how fluent you are/if they(the waitstaff) can really understand you. If someone claimed to speak English and subsequently misspelled an easy word, then I'd question them as well.

A person in America could order "Hamburger give me" and the waitress would understand, but might ask the native speaking partner what they'd like on it or if there's anything special they would like done to it.
You can't be serious! Do you know how many people spell the word "definitely" wrong? Definately. Definitaly. Defanately. Definetely. Definetily. It's feels almost endless. Some of these people are university educated folks who are still using an incorrect spelling. Does it matter? Do I assume they can't speak English because of that? So silly.

I am guilty of this. I just recently learned to spell definitely and I am 32 now.  :lipsrsealed:

Not sure if this has already been said but what really grinds my gears is when Koreans say yes to doing things even if they don't want to, and then they get secretly mad at you for "making them do it". I mean, if I ask them if they want to do something I actually want to know if it is okay. If not, just say no!!! Or if saying "no" is too much of a culture shock, offer another suggestion instead. It has happened with both my co workers and my bf. They get secretly mad at you for something they could've just said "no" for in the first place!! ugh //endrant
