I've noticed some bike riders driving in the street, instead of the nice bike paths that are made for their safety.

Which breings me to one of my pet peeves: THE FACT THAT ALL THE NICE BIKE PATHS THAT ARE MADE FOR OUR SAFETY ARE BLOCKED BY &@$^$*# PARKED CARS, VENDOR STALLS, AND IDIOT PEDESTRIANS!!!!   >:(

DON'T TOUCH MY DAMN COMPUTER SCREEN!

What is up with the damn screen touching here? if i'm discussing a lesson with my coteacher(s) in the office and showing them the materials for the class, they'll always point and claw at the computer screen.

and they do the same thing in the classroom. and when we teach in the classroom that has a smartboard, it's the same! and then of course the PPT moves to the next slide and my coteacher always acts amazed at this.

last night had my korean GF over and i was showing her something on my laptop and she touched my damn screen too. i tried to smack her hand away but it was too late and she actually left a small scratch on it, so i'm super pissed off at the moment  >:(

As far as the WAIT THO THERE ARE PROBLEMS EVERYWHERE argument, yeah hot take. The difference is, the problems that exist back home (to me) are severely depressing while having a laugh about how Lotte flatly denies that Pepero is a straight knock-off of Pocky (and all other "Ramyeon" iterations), for instance, brings about less despair.  :undecided:

I think the local gu-office call that "integrated public transport".

"Look see, you can cycle safely to the bus stop."

I don't know about this one. I think half the point of having sinks in our offices is so we can do things like brush our teeth away from the children.

Also, ranting and venting is not a healthy way to deal with stress
+1

Recently, I've been needing to "solve" a commute problem.

When I take the bus home, there are these two Korean men smoking at the bus stop.

The first two times, I pointed to the "no smoking" sign, they muttered some nonsense, and walked away.

However, the third time, I simply looked at them and didn't say anything, because they swore openly as I approached (no muttering, which indicated to me that they didn't intend on walking away or putting their cigarettes out).

Solution: I started walking to a different bus stop (the stop before that one).

The beauty of it...

When they got on the bus, who do they sit next to...

You guessed it :)  (lovely smoke smell, thanks guys)

Thankfully, the weather is getting nicer, so I can start walking home to avoid the issue.

In short, I agree with you Mr. D.  Removing myself from the situation is much healthier than beating my head against the bric/those two rude smokers (I think "rude" and "smoker" are unnecessarily redundant).
You've just enabled their law breaking.

That's pretty much the Korean solution to problems--just ignore them.

The police getting paid with tax won to do as little as possible is on my list of irks.

I hate Korean department stores. I hate being followed like a damn thief. Just leave me be and I'll buy something but when you follow me around, it makes me want to go someplace else and buy it just to spite you/your company.

I imagine that the drainage system existed long before the bike path and the recently resurfaced road. You are basically asking for the city to completely tear up the drainage system which was installed long before bike paths were considered a part of city planning (We're talking something on the order of 40+years).

Now you can either spend millions in tax revenue overhauling the drainage system so it blends perfectly with bike paths (rather than spending it on schools, parks, community services, etc.) OR you could have a few spots like this which are inconvenient.

Guess the klown without common sense or any grasp of city planning is you.

And 'klown' is really dodgy man. We're talking 'the blacks'/'coolie' territory.

Define department store? Are we talking Shinsegae? Or are you talking about the sock aisle on the 2nd floor floor of a HomePlus? Obviously in a cheap or medium-end its nice to be left alone.

However, high-end shopping, it really is best to be served (if you can communicate with them), that way you can ask questions, get recommendations, make it clear what you want, etc, especially if its something you don't really understand (or its something you REALLY understand).

Also, people would moan if the sales people ignored them. They'd probably think it was racist or something.
