Like Koreans wearing baseball jerseys from the MLB, who gives a shit? "But they don't know the meaning or history behind the team!"

So, I don't know the history of the necktie, I'm still going to wear one to a job interview.

Lol what? Where is this coming from? People actually care that Koreans wear MLB gear!? I guarantee that half of Americans that wear MLB stuff don't know anything about the teams either.

I think it's part of the discussion here:

http://www.waygook.org/index.php/topic,100820.0.html

I thought that particular example had been offered up as a bit of biting sarcasm, but who can really say on here? xD

They take some from the classroom stock every time they wanna go to the john.

This is my problem. I never remember to bring any in with me. Because, you know, why would there be any toilet paper next to a toilet, right?

@sevenpm: at one of my elementary schools, each homeroom has TP for the kiddos. They take some from the classroom stock every time they wanna go to the john.

Also, whatever did happen to Sonny??

He went away for a while. Gone but never forgotten.  :afro: Who know's when he'll show up next? It could be sooner than you think  :police:

Note to all coteachers:

If you haven't understood what I've just said, asking me to repeat it isn't the end of the world.  I honestly won't get mad.  Even Westerners don't understand each other sometimes.  It happens.

But don't let your eyes glaze over and just say "mmmmm" when I know you haven't understood what I've said.  What am I supposed to do then?  Just repeat it and embarrass us both even more?

It's genuinely gotten to the point where any conversation I have with someone at school is 99% me just listening because I know that if I say something, they either pretend they haven't heard it and carry on or pretend to have understood what I've said and carry on anyway  :-[

coT, why you so annoying?? Stop asking if I'm on a diet. I always tell you no. I guess this is one of your stock English phrases that you like to whip out for "conversation."

One of my co-teachers is always chiding me for not eating healthy enough and for not drinking enough water. Usually I don't care, but this week it's really getting on my nerves.

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.

My travel school removed M$ Office from their computers.

I explained the situation, and they said I have to use Han office.

So I basically spend 3 lessons working with slides that just don't work, the games don't work, nothing works. I just give up and do 3 physical games that I could think of right on the spot.

Then the teachers suddenly realized that all the powerpoint resources that they have collected over years of teaching maths, Korean, English, science, etc, now also don't work, one of the teachers is crying to the head teacher about it, the other is telling the computer guy to put M$ office back on while the computer guy says he can't. So the teachers told the computer guy to make all of their ppt's work perfectly in han office.

Shhhhh, no one tell them about M$ office PPT viewer!!! I'm not making lessons out of hours at home while they force me to sit here and do nothing.

I never knew this.  It's simply amazing.

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.

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

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.




"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.

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.
