the best i've gotten is one day, i was exhausted and i litterally did not pay attention to what i was putting on, threw my hair in a messy ponytail and a plain headband to help control the flyaways...
every single person i met said how sexy/beautiful/pretty i look, being nice or true?
I get this sometimes too, unfortunately though if I straighten my hair on the day before or the day after I do this (throw my hair up and headband) then I get a different response...
:-) that'll teach me to make it obvious when I roll out of bed and when I don't.

i actually got my hair chemically straightened, and after i did it, there really wasn't much response...
even when i dress up really nice, no response.
i think i'm with you haha

After haring received my ARC card my co-teacher at the time decided to take me shopping.So while he is driving me there he leans over:

CoT:Do you want porn?
Me:Uhm,no thanks.
CoT:I think you will need one,life be difficult without porn.
Me:I will be ok without,so no thanks.

Here i am thinking that this dude doesnt mix his words,he just gets to the point.Turns on Monday morning he wanted to take me to a shop to get a phone.

I ordered 찜닭 (like a chicken stew for those who are unfamiliar) for dinner last night and only finished half. I brought the other half in to enjoy for lunch today.

My CT looked at my bag, asked what was inside, and said, "It seems to me that you are a pig".

Only in Korea!
;D  I think she has not beet to other countries so far. That's why she responded like that. In Korean, When we usually eat 찜닭 , we don't like to get the leftover. Also,
                We usually eat leftover at home not bring leftover to the company or school. i think that is the cultural difference between your country and Korean.so next i hope you will eat leftover at home not the school or company.

This seems like a case of a translation gone very wrong. When my parents visited this summer, my cot kept asking "when will I meet them? I want to service them.". Ummm... I think they get by just fine on their own, but thanks for the offer.

koradian:  good for you for not wasting the leftovers!  as my mum would say "there are a lot of starving people in this world."
regardless of the cultural norm it is better to eat food than waste it. 

i always bring leftovers for lunch.  in fact, i cook more dinner than i need specifically so that i will have leftovers for lunch the next day.  my coworkers always look in my lunch kit and ask what i am eating.  i show them.  we get on with our day.  no biggie.  :)

While I agree with not wasting leftovers, please be aware that we don't all have the same cultural norms (hence, why they are called cultural norms).  In some cultures the norm was/is to to have excess food as a sign of wealth and fnancial prosperity.  I'd really like to write more but this thread really isn't the forum for such a discusion.  It was just the flippant way you said "regardless of the cultural norm" and then went ahead to inject your own cultural norm as true for all.

The yesterday, I was told that we were eating "Kitchen Soup" for lunch. She meant Chicken.

Last week, after helping me with my bank information, another danced around and laughed, "I know your PIN and your ID number, I'm stealing your identityyyyyyy!!"

I hope she was just kidding!! ;)

Just had the re-signing talk with one of my co-teachers. I mentioned how, learning from experience in Korea, I always expect the worst. So, I wouldn't be surprised if at the last minute my school 'forgot' to tell me they won't be re-signing me or something... you know what I mean.

So, her reply was, "Don't worry! If you don't commit a crime you can re-sign!"

I had a good laugh over this one!

My mentor teacher Steven is.... special.

I got a contagious eye infection
and since he never picks up his phone i went to school to notify him about my condition.
He got very concerned and then went and consulted my contract about sick days and had an extremely long discussion with the vice principal.
afterwards, he was telling me about all these things like obtaining a doctor's note, deducting my pay, reimbursement of medical fees, how i need to take time off b/c i might give it to the kids etc. and that they have to deduct my pay because he can't come up w/a way for me to make-up my hours *cough* incompetent *cough*

so i ask

"what do i do about classes today?"
steven: um... we can't do anything about it so continue w/classes as usual
 :o what?
steven: uh.. yeah. just try not to touch any of them. it should be fine  ;D

I've got a real doozy:

Co-teacher: Do you have any "carrier" (this is what I heard from her pronunciation) teaching?
Me: "Carrier"? What's that? [confused]
Co-teacher: Do you have any "carrier" teaching before?
Me: Oh, "career"? Do you mean "career"?
Co-teacher: [nods] Yeah, in "Korea" or any other country...
Me: Nonono...I'm not talking about the country "Korea" -- the word you said before is pronounced "ca-reer," not "car-ri-er"...

Ay yi yi...haha.
