koreans have magically self-cleaning asses
I never knew this.  It's simply amazing.

I mean many of them don't use toilet paper...

Today there was "spaghetti" at lunch but it was some strange abomination between typical red pasta sauce and a kind of kimchi-like vinaigrette. That's how you grossly bastardize multiple cultures at once.

this is a minor annoyance but i really wish they would keep the toilet paper in the bathrooms stocked at my school. no hand dryers or paper towels i accepted easily. i keep my own TP at my desk now but sometimes i've had to go to like 4 or 5 bathrooms just to find some, and it'll stay that way for days and days. are they trying to save? is it just not in the budget? do the people here just not care about kids running around with no access to toilet paper at school? i know the cleaning ladies go in there more often than they restock the toilet paper because they empty out the trashes. just.. do better, c'mon.


and if someone is going to reply to this with some annoying word vomit about how constant access to toilet paper is a wasteful western invention and we really don't need it as evidenced by how koreans have magically self-cleaning asses, i don't care. i really don't care.

Anyone who would literally call access to toilet paper 'western intervention' is silly.

Actually, 99% of homeroom teachers keep some toilet paper in their classroom, and most students keep some or have a friend who keeps some in their little cubby locker or bag.

So, the school doesn't stock it because dumb kids will make a mess out of it and waste it, and also it's just expected that people will have their own toilet paper, or borrow from a friend, because that's normal.

I was lucky, I've always had washrooms for teachers at all my schools, and they always have toilet paper, because teachers aren't going to grab it and run through the halls or cover the bathroom in it.

That's fine for when they are in homeroom, but I often see kids in between classes run into the stalls with absolutely nothing, do their business, and then run out. No one is giving them toilet paper in those situations.  My coteachers don't give students toilet paper when they leave in the middle of class and they never ask me for it. Granted, it's the younger students I see doing this. I'm sure the 6th graders are a little bit more conscientious.

"and also it's just expected that people will have their own toilet paper, or borrow from a friend, because that's normal."
Yes I know, as everyone knows access to toilet paper isn't just a western thing. It was a joke about how completely useless the majority of responses on here are. Kind of like telling someone who has lived in Korea for three years that people generally carry toilet paper on them.

My point was I wish the bathrooms had toilet paper, I don't care about their reasons or how they make up for it sometimes.

Principal walks past my office during lunch, I have the lights on, door and window closed with the AC on. I was in the room but he didn't see me.

Two hours later, I leave the room for three minutes to talk to a co-teacher, come back and he's waiting outside my office. He then begins to yell at me in Korean, I have no idea what he's yelling, and just walks away.

My co teacher then shows up, says that he thought I was not in the room all day with the AC blowing and lights on. I already felt like the principal didn't like me, but this definitely made the situation worse.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave even though I really don't want to.

I haven't been able to sleep for over 2 weeks due to some anxiety issues which I'm usually able to keep under control, but apparently not anymore. It's only been made worse by the recent earthquakes. I feel like if there's another one I might legitimately have to leave for my mental health. I felt like actual death today after getting the least sleep I've gotten since this started - 1 hour. Usually I at least manage 3. I got some sleeping medicine from the doctor last night but he gave me fxxkin ambien, which can cause hallucinations and sleepwalking. I live on the 9th floor, I am not risking any sleepwalking out the window.

To top it all off, my boss was just asking me about everything, and I told her about my fear of taking the ambien because I live alone so if I did start doing something dangerous no one would be there to stop me. She totally shrugged it off and told me to trust the doctor. So, now it's going to be my fault in her mind if I come to work again tomorrow fxxked up from lack of sleep.

When will my nightmare end

To be fair to people, it's hard to fully understand meaning in text.

 I've noticed with peoples rants before, they do this sort of rhetorical question thing which is all cool but its hard to actually understand that it's rhetorical.

 It actually looks like you're asking a question and then get annoyed at people answering you. It really looks like you don't know the reasons why this or that happens. I'm not attacking you btw  :laugh: just trying to explain.

My point was I wish the bathrooms had toilet paper, I don't care about their reasons or how they make up for it sometimes. Okay cool, just say that then.

It is annoying, I've had many awkward situations where i've been tired and realized too late that there is no loo roll  :cry:

I think she's referring to the thread that was asking which Asian women were the best: from Japan, Korea, China, the Phillipines, etc. I never actually clicked on it because I was busy rolling my eyes, but I can't imagine the responses in there were that civil. Also, I only saw the title once, so I might be distorting it a little.

This happened to me, today. >:( Luckily, I was only peeing, but I was so angry. I just put my pants back on (very lightly because I was trying not to get pee drops on my undie) and went over to the next stall to wipe. I'm getting angry just thinking about it. The TP in that stall ran out yesterday but it's the one I always go to out of habit just because it's the first stall when you walk in (only two stalls) but I forgot.

Truth be told, ya'll didn't miss much. Someone posted in this thread about it, the content of which I found more entertaining:

aww I had typed out this whole response to where the best woman were on that thread just as it got deleted so I'm posting it here because I feel like I worked hard on my review!

Japanese woman fold up into a compact cube for more convenient storage, whilst China just released a new model of woman which comes in a deep navy blue titled "woman, for men". Woman from the Philippines still contain a recently banned antibacterial agent in their coating and are thus not recommended for use near children. Korean woman are at the cutting edge of anti theft technology but there have been a number of issues due to their lack of compatibility with windows 10.

Hope that helps you make an informed decision even though it's on a different thread.

There's a lot of toilet paper everywhere in this country. But damn you if you flush it down the toilet. I have seen messages on stall doors for ages in both Korean and English: Don't flush the toilet paper down the toilet. I understand that Korea has small pipes, but toilet paper is made to dissolve. And ok, I understand that sit toilets instead of squat toilets were put in during the Olympics in 1988. And the toilet paper at that time clogged up a lot of pipes. But that was 1988! Toilet paper has evolved man. Modern toilet paper is supposed to dissolve in about 30 seconds. It's the least offensive thing you could flush other than your own piss. But the belief prevails anyway. Where are the scientific experts in this country? Certainly not in the news. Food and other solids are ok to flush, by the way.

A friend came to visit me a while back, and said as she used a public toilet, a cleaner was there.  When it came time to empty the paper bin next to the toilet......she tipped it all in the toilet and fluashed it!  The paper in the bin is about habbit, and not plumbing.  Basically, if it has a modern toilet, it can cope with paper.

The toilets weren't the problem. Korean toilet paper used to be F-grade or something. We're talking splinters!

Isn't there a Waygook user who isn't allowed to flush her toilet paper in her apartment?

Or have I imagined that?

I can't think of anything worse than putting toilet paper in a bin in my own home  :huh:

I am so sad, lonely, and depressed in this country.

I know the job is easy. I know I shouldn't be complaining.

But every single day is a struggle and I still have 161 left on my countdown app.
