Fewer things are less elegant than a cafeteria of Koreans trying to use knives and forks on Dankatsu day!

I always find it funny how people literally don't know how to use a knife and fork properly, and yet are always surprised when whitey uses chopsticks.
Maybe thats why they are so surprised. They can't handle our cutlery, how can we handle theirs?  :undecided: :laugh:


Every time I eat lunch the teachers comment on how I don't have any kimchi on my tray. Today I decided to put some on as an experiment. They were all like Scarn has kimchi! Kimchi is delicious etc. Ate my food and left the kimchi and scraped it off into the abyss and walked away like a boss.

Ugh this is half the reason why I want to quit lunch forever. I don't get as many comments as I do looks that are most certainly cataloguing what I have/haven't gotten, how much I'm throwing away, and somehow it's either "YOU BARELY EAT ANYTHING" or "WOW YOU SURE HAVE A LOT OF ______"

Just please let me live.

It was Bibimbap day.  I took my bowl, and a bit of each of the required sides.
When we sat down, I noticed that my co-workers each had a scope of red sauce. A few minuted later they noticed that I did not.

"It's alright!" I said, "I'll just eat it like this... it isn't worth going back."

"You must have it!  It will not be delicious without it."

One of them actually went back to the slop trough and got a small bowl for me.

"Thanks."

For some reason it just looks weird to me.  Maybe if they were at least round instead of square?

They come in square?  :shocked:

The ones I've seen in my area are all round. I think a lot of the girls buy them from stores like Innisfree and... Etude, maybe?

I hate how nutrition facts in Korean are often listed in a paragraph rather than in a chart. It would be much easier to figure it all out if it were laid out differently...

Ahhh I'm out in the boonies where we don't even have a convenience store.  Not sure where the kids are getting them then.

Urgh, I'm not a fan of the red sauce.  I much prefer bibimbap with some sesame oil and soy sauce.  Apparently that's the kiddie version but I never grew out of it.

Holy shit yes. Every time I turn something over to see what's in it, I inevitably sigh and just put it back.

Someone brought in little individually packaged chocolate cakes and they're actually quite delectable. 

I can't stop stuffing my face with this sugary garbage

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

There was a guy on here who used to use his real fullname as his username on here (he changed it eventually) and I met him one night..... he was even worse in real life. People in our area were talking about him before I even met him.

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.

I'm super obvious to find since my username is my nickname on FB but I don't say stuff on here that I wouldn't say in real life. I just lurk, take in the drama, and message my friend on Kakao about interesting threads. I've found a few friends on here because they'll ask me about something then 5 minutes later there's a post on here with the same question but they don't just go off on here every day about some minor inconvenience :P

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.

Well today I just caught him walking down the stairs while playing on his phone and fixed him with a quick look, and the total shame in his eyes as he saw me was great.

Nah, I was talking about someone else.

As far as I know I've never met DeMartino, that would be a trip though.

One of the new teachers told me my leggings looked sexy.  (we played sports the other day, I had on last year's uniform since I don't really have exercise clothes (they're pants that go below the knee, and I was wearing tights to cover up my lower legs because it's still cold)) 

I made this face  :huh: which made things awkward so she backtracked and said, "Uh, you look... good."  Cue awkward laughter from both parties.

Awkward.

My first year here, one of the teachers injured her foot because she fell down the stairs while playing on her phone.   :shocked:  She had to wear some sort of foot cage for a time.

Hahah right?  I'm so curious to know what everyone looks like.

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!
