There is this one student that seems to pop up everytime I'm walking while on my phone around campus. "Teacher, don't walk and look at your phone." "Teacher, you shouldn't walk and look at your phone." "Teacher..." He will just come out of nowhere and warn me.


Yaaasssss. I really...dislike... when people look at their phones and walk. It isn't because I care if they get hurt (I mean I do, but not exactly), it is because it inconveniences me when I am behind them and must wait for them to snap back to reality.
I don't like the ones who continually stare down as they walk, impeding the natural flow of the sidewalk. I do quick glances up and down, but keep my speed up. And I don't on busy sidewalks, like on Hongdae or where ever.

@Yirj That seems like asking for it. Scary!

Student walks into the office.

Student:  "Hello!!"
Me:  "Hello!"
Student:  "Balloon! (holds up a balloon) Big balloon!"

*brief pause*

Student:  "Bye bye!!"  (exits)

I enjoy when things like this happen.

The bye bye can basically be expanded to "I have now exhausted 93% of my English vocabulary. I simply wanted to show you my balloon. Good day, Sir."

Anyone even realize that a fairly bitter waygook user is someone they know in real life? It's really satisfying to make that connection and realize they're quiet in person because they're bitter at everything XD

LOL, yes this has happened to me. I know someone on here in RL. However the confidence and arrogance that comes through on this forum is in stark contrast to the lonely, sad, quiet, miserable person I know. :lipsrsealed:

I've known at least a couple previous waygook users in real life, they knew my handle, too.
One of them was the now (in?)famous Dr. gender last-name-rhymes-with-tomato. The stories were real.
:huh: :huh: :huh:
Soooo...
... Dr. gender Alfredo?
... Dr. gender Romeo?
... Dr. gender tornado?
... Dr. gender Horatio?
 :huh: :huh: :huh:

     I'm a lot less well spoken in real-life.... mostly because I (unfortunately) can't go back in time and constantly re-edit all my stupid remarks to sound progressively less stupid.

I've actually known several Wayg posters (and vice versa) but most have since left Korea, leaving me free to post to my trollish heart's content.  :azn: :evil:

This is the second reference to DrGenderPotato I have seen in the past week or so, so I had to google it. Seems the Dr must have left just when I arrived. Reading the posts now though, good way to kill the next hour!

I included waygook in the search, which narrowed it down a bit.

Also, just to add that the "You know what really grinds my gears______" thread is an absolute hoot!

I would LOVE to see people from here in real life, it would be so interesting. Like a nature documentary.

Sounds like a fun experiment! Let's all post photos of ourselves and see if our looks fit our online persona.

I'll start. Unfortunately the lighting in this pic makes my beard look a tad weak  :cry:

Bonus round: After reading all Dr. GenderPotato's posts try and figure out which account it morphed into after it was "silenced" by the mods  :wink: Happy weekend reading!

So she morphed into .. a robot maybe???

Truly you challenged me and now I am trying to figure it out. Because my brain sucks and it has some kind of weird OCD thing going on.  :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Can we start a trend with our students here and introduce them to some light ribbing of their peers?

I've met a few people on here selling stuff and the odd quick pint down at McClutchies.

The lights are all turned off in the hallways in my school, so it's like a dark tunnel with the open doors and light at the end. There was a very small child walking in the halls today (staff baby), but all I could see was the silhouette, so it was very eerie looking.
