One time I went to the movies and this employee was super nice and helpful.  The next weekend I went to the movies again and the same employee was there.  The latter time she drew hearts on my receipt (for the floor and room number) instead of the usual circles.   :laugh: :undecided: :laugh:

HER floor and room number?  :azn:

Oh if only...  :afro:

 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Don't let it go to your head. There is a certain immaturity in some Korean women.

A few months ago, I took a jar of coins to the bank. The teller told me I could wait, or she would send me a text when it was counted and deposited.

The text she sent had 💕💕 heart emoticons. 

Guess she didn't see my account balance.

They might have been buttering you both up for tips. Did they write their account numbers, as well?  :afro: :afro:

I think she might have helped herself to that.  The deposit was strangely an exact multiple of 10 000.

I forgot that fathers day is coming up.... Now I need to think of something I can get shipped to my dad..... What do you get someone who hates everything and everyone? Any suggestions? Otherwise he's getting another Marks Work Wearhouse giftcard...

I got my dad an NC Dinos 테임즈 jersey, as he was just recently picked up by our home team, the Milwaukee Brewers. It's great because the teams happen to share similar colors, and it's sure to draw attention when he goes to Miller Park.

Does he like to cook? My step mother has gone gluten-free so I thought they could use a good Korean-style rice cooker at their house. They're incredibly expensive though, so an Instant Pot might make a good gift. Or perhaps a Korean necktie? Too formal?

My dad can't even butter a dang sandwich so cooking things are out of the question. He's into NASCAR so maybe something related.... My friend screwed up his christmas gift (She came to visit and I got him a bunch of food but then she gave his gift to one of my other friends who are most of the food by the time I found out she gave him like a pack of gum and a choco-pie)so I need to get him something good.... Are there any Korean race car things? Maybe get him something super Korean for his car...

I was asked for a medical note today because she thought I actually had a heart problem.

When I explained what happened, it was not pretty.

Really wish I'd managed to nab a Nintendo Classic Mini before they sold out. And subsequently got discontinued in less than a year because the Nintendo company's a butt.

Could have used it for part of this year's summer camp. Regrets.

No, I am fukking dense. ㅋㅋ

I decided a while ago to stop lying to people. I'm quite charismatic so it's quite easy for me to do, it's a useful skill, but I don't like using it.

I'll let the chips fall where they may. There's nothing my school can do to me that's worse than the feeling I have right now anyway.

My middle school 1st years at my current school are very particular about teams and seating arrangements. When I tell them to get into two teams (there's 12 of them) they take about 5 minutes to all play 'rock, paper, scissors' to figure out the team leader and pick their team members.  :rolleyes: Just split normally into 2 groups like everyone else. I also witnessed them assigning each other seats at lunch today too.

A student just snuck up behind me while I was sitting at my desk watching YT and suddenly whispered at me "Teacher... why is grammar important?"

Scared the bejeezus out of me.  :cry:

I was teaching the kids how to play "Go Fish" today, and after they put all the cards in the middle I told them to each take 5 cards. They did RPS to decide in what order to take the cards. Ridiculous.

I put a picture up of Kel Mitchel from his role in Good Burger on the screen and one student's immediate reaction before anything else is said is, "That's racist!" with a smile on his face. What's that about??

I remember when I found those in Namdaemun like a week after the election and I couldn't stop laughing. The ajeossi was a bit confused so my bf had to explain why I was laughing at them so much.

Today I told my students that if they sang to me in English, I'd give them candy. No repeat songs allowed. (I had a thing of Icebreaker sours)

Got about 10~12 singers, some of whom sang more than once  8)  :laugh:
