I really don't mind the constant "Do you have a girlfriend?" question being asked by Koreans (save the time that it was the immediate follow-up to when the taxi driver asked me where I was going), but what gets me is when you say "No" and they ask "Why?"

It's already awkward enough, but it gets even more so if the answer is:

  • I recently broke up.
  • My partner died.
  • I don't want a relationship.

Bet they'd stop asking then (or at least, I'd hope).

Answer them with the same question:

Korean: Do you gave a girlfriend?

Real person: Do you have a girlfriend / boyfriend?  (Imply homosexuality if you feel mischievious, watch them squirm)

Genius. Simply genius.

Just have a policy of lying automatically about any questions related to your private life, coming from people who don't matter.

Taxi driver: Where are you from?  (in Korean)
Me: Thank you.
Taxi driver: Where are you from? (again in Korean)
Me: Kaenchanmayo

Peace and quiet.

I hate ads.

I report every single ad that appears on my Facebook profile as 'sexually explicit'. Every single one.

FB will send me a notification every single day saying 'we have reviewed your report' blah blah blah. But they only ever do this when it's a small time advertiser. I've never had a FB response from one of the big companies' advert reports. Seems like they have special treatment for the big boys. This bothers me, but not as much as the ads themselves.

Those ads when you are watching a video.... ooooh. I deleted the app after I saw that shit.

"I use a free service and then there are ads? Why is this happening to me?"

I will never understand this argument. Same with youtube, "The ads are annoying!!"

You watch as many videos as you want for free. Suck it up.

Firstly please don't use vulgar language discriminating the LGBT community.  :rolleyes: :laugh:

You are a really unkind and horrible person. You're also really. really bad at making jokes. Can't tell which is worse, honestly.

You knows it's bad in your building when you look forward to coming to school to find some quiet time.  Yet another weekend my c*k sucking neighbor had the music cranked for 12+ hours, Sat. and Sun.  The topper was having to listen to him rabbit f*ck some girl in the building.  But this usually only lasts a good 5~10 mins.  Yay for me, but kina sad for her!

Yesterday at my travel school, my students asked to watch a movie (cause it was after final exams) I said no, because the korean teacher said, you still have to study (which is true).
The students got so angry that they started a small fire in the classroom.
I quickly told them to put it out, and the high level student I was chatting with, yelled the Kor version of what I was saying to them.
Afterwards, I got the Kor teacher, who also grabbed the homeroom teacher, and the boys who done it got in so much trouble, that the other students, including the ones who had nothing to do with it, were so scared, that the class was literally silent all class.

Only 2 more weeks there >.<

They had a lighter or something, they ripped out pages from their textbook, and used the lighter to burn them.

Taxi drivers should be screened so that the chatty are weeded out. It should be only ppl who would rather listen to their music or radio program while ignoring you and driving you safely from Point A to Point B.
