Even worse are the constant requests for wi-fi, for people to hotspot, people who won't check something or watch something because they're skinflints with data.

we've told you this before demartian, if you don't want to hear stuff like this then don't hang around with and lord over 'spongers' and 'cheapskates' like this.  i don't, and do you know how many times I've heard people say these things in the last five years?  *hint* less than one.

"I don't pay for data so I need to wander around aimlessly when I'm out on a Saturday night to kakao my friends cuz I need to find a free wifi source. 10 bucks a month for a gig of data is just to rich for my tastes" says the man who doesn't pay rent and makes at least 2 million a month.

OK I guess that'd technically be me, though I never use my phone for the internet, so I guess I don't bum anything. Does accessing wifi in a coffee shop with an ipad count?

Only if you did not buy anything at the coffee shop. Otherwise you are a paying customer.

I think a happy medium between zero data and uncapped data can be found for most people. I can't imagine doing zero and I don't think that would be very common. Even if you just had 1gb for kakao, maps and the odd google.

Personally I think restricted data is good for me. I find myself on my phone too much when I'm home because I know the wifi covers it. When I'm out I actively don't look at my phone so as to not use too much of my data. It's amazing how much time I can waste on utter pointlessness like instagram, random youtube rabbitholes etc.

I pay 55,000 won per month on my phone, but that was getting a new phone and 3 or 5GB of data per month.
I don't ever get close to that, as there is loads of wifi spots around Korea, or I'm around a PC with an internet connection and don't need to use my mobile data then. About the only time I'm using my mobile data, is when I'm on the bus somewhere and looking at things.
I'm not being a cheapskate for not having unlimited, I have what I need, so paying more, for more data, would just be a waste of money.

Ah yeah, phew! But didn't Starbucks change their policy on non paying customers recently after those black guys got arrested? Nowadays you can just hang around there without buying anything can't you?

I've never met a working employee who didn't have the normal generous data plan. 
What you haven't encountered some dipshit millennial who is always asking you to hotspot them or searching for wifi or asking someone if they have wifi the second they step into their house?

So are you one of those spongers and cheapskates? Get your own data and stop being a bum.

Can someone explain to me what bumming wifi actually means? (please be gentle)

"Hey dude, I gotta have the restaurant charge my phone, my extra battery is tapped out. Can you stream the game on your phone while mine charges?"
"Sorry, I don't have data and they don't have wifi here."

"Sorry, you guys were waiting. I had to find a place with wifi so I could figure out where you were."

(Walks in door) "Hey do you have wifi?"

"Alright let's get to work."
"Uh we can't work here, there's no wifi."
"Just tether your phone."
"I don't have any data. Do you?"

Bumming wi-fi can be a gateway drug to begpacking and other forms of dumb behavior. In fact, bumming is too nice a word. It's more like leeching.

And like I said, I get it if you're one of those minimalist/old-school types who just doesn't use their phone/data much and so it's utterly pointless for you and you don't sponge off of anyone. You're cool. I'd even let slide people who keep it confined to say, a coffee shop (and buy something once an 1-2 hours). There's something I do that they'll let slide.

Outright wifi  cheapskatery? Stop being a bum and spend the extra 10 bucks for effs sake. If you're desperate for money, I have a ziploc bag full of lose change you can shave.

why are you watching a game in a restaurant?  talk to these people, they need your wise words.

stop hanging around with hopeless idiots and this won't happen.

this happens at home.  someone comes to your house and asks what the wifi password is.  where's the problem with that?

"Just tether your phone."

here's what you do to this person... to quote your hero...

My cousin had to ask a restaurant to charge his phone while we were there.
However, the night before he got REALLY drunk, and forgot to put his phone on the charger when he got back to the hotel / once he woke up haha.

But, I've never seen anything else like that example. :p

I mean as long as bumming wi-fi doesn't hinder your everyday activities and life, and you're not annoying me about it, you're fine in my book. At least you're not leeching torrents from a private tracker..

Now, those people.... >:( :evil:

Also kyndo, why does your school have large bolt cutters?? :huh:

Friends in a restaurant watching a game on their respective smart phones is a bit weird I'd have thought. Unless times have changed a lot.

What kind of bumass biitch is crowding around a telephone to watch something. My policy is if you cant afford a big screen tv with all the packages or access to some sort of vip lounge showing all the big games then you shouldn't be out in public. Stay indoors with all the other low class cretins. Crowding around watching on a telephone screen....lol. Now I've heard it all.
