Ever noticed how foreigners selling stuff here don't seem to understand depreciation?

For example 1997 KIA Car paid w1m for it back in 2001 just had 4 new tires fitted selling for w1m.

or

US PS4 500GB comes with original controllers and FIFA 2014 bought in 2013 selling for $395.

I've noticed this a lot recently. It bothers me a great deal. Please stop.
Who is here in 2019?

Right. If you paid 475 000 for a PS4 4 years ago and want 395$ for it, it'd better be mint and come with 8 games.

I would gladly spend 20% more on something for new, having the peace of mind that it's never been used AND a warranty. AND a receipt.

My GF's family gave me 4kg of kimchi on Chuseok. I have 2 kg left but I'm moving back to Canada.

It's organic and homemade. 45 000 OBO

For a second, I thought you were actually leaving us, and I was sad.

Are you buying my kimchi or not?

For some reason I've been craving fish and chips like crazy for the past few weeks. 

It's the one authentic British food that I've never seen here. 

I'm dying for it  :cry: :cry: :cry:

There is/was a fish and chip place in Sinchon in Seoul run by 2 English guys. Haven't been in about 6 years though so don't know if it's still open or not.

My country school cracks me up.  First I'm told by my 4th grade CoT that we won't be having class tomorrow, (at the normal time) but we will be having it after break.  10:55-11:30 AM... I inform him that I have block 5th grade at that time...  I get the look of, "And....."  Again, I explain I have lessons from 10:55-12:20 PM I even write it out on the white board.  Now he understands, but he tells me that he's going to ask my 5th grade CoT about it...  Dude, really?!  Then during break, one of my 6th graders comes in to chat.  She asks if I'm going to be in class today.  Yea...  I'll be there.  Now, why would she ask me that?  She probably knows some thing I don't.  Sure enough, I head down to teach my 6th grade and my CoT is still teaching his other lesson, we all get behind, no big deal. So, I stand outside his door for a good 10 minutes until it dawns on me, I guess I'm not teaching class today.  No wonder my 6th grader asked if I would be there today.  It's literally one thing after another here. 

TBH, I love this damn school!  If they're not canceling classes on me, then their changing times, forgetting to tell me if class has been canceled or not etc etc.  Most people would lose their sh*t, I on the other hand, find it amusing.  I'm seriously going to miss this school!

4th grade at my country school is now being taught "the body" so I thought maybe the song "Head, shoulder, knees, and toes" would help them along.  But while singing said song, I veered off into the "Animaniacs" theme song.  Anyone else hear the similarities?   :huh:

Seen them around in a few places but I have yet to see a place that gives malt vinegar with your order.  Rumour had it that Wolfhound kept a bottle behind the bar and you had to ask for it but the one time I tried the guy was adamant they didn't have it.  I once saw a bottle at the foreign food mart but it was ridiculously overpriced. I love that stuff with fish and chips.

Does anyone else have students that refer to them by their first name?

"Teacher" is the most common I'm sure, followed by "Name Teacher." But some students have taken to calling me by my first name alone. Not that it bothers me, I'm just curious how often it happens.

Good one.  Now you got me thinking about Malteasers.  Maybe they have something similar at Costco.  Anyways, this time of year after getting shafted for Canadian Thanksgiving it's time to root out American Thanksgiving fare.  Good thing this is the pointless rambling thread.  One class today due to field trips and I may be lurking on here.
