Contrarians, on Waygook.org.

Whenever someone starts complaining about something seemingly indefensible (Lyrics from mainstream 'hip-hop' music, Fan Death, Koreanized pizza etc.) you get a bunch of people agreeing or sharing similar stories. Then, you get some guy getting off his high horse to complain how 'narrow-minded' the complainer is and go on some moral crusade to correct our peasantry behaviour. In truth, this person is just trying to give the impression that they're smarter, more unique, more open-minded and more civilised than you.

There are exceptions to almost every rule, but ain't nobody got the time to keep mentioning it, or list every single exception just to keep these insufferable PC and contrarian blowhards happy.

What I hear from these people is,
"Het guys, can you stop complaining in the Rant/Vent thread? I don't like it."

Go create a unicorn thread then and I'll stay the hell out of it.

Don't think you get the point. I can't just go start a "Lets hate on black people" thread. There are pointless threads that have nothing to do with the forum, and this is one of them. I wouldn't go start a thread about kimchi in a photography forum.

People complain about complainers who are complaining about stupid shit.  Guess what? Get rid of the pointless complainers, and those "defenders" will disappear as well.

also, If Aristocrat feels that way, aren't you a big ol hypocrite, thinking you are better than those "contrarians" by complaining how they shouldn't be complaining about complainers?

Ranting is a part of daily life, and discussion. This forum ans a discussion board of life in Korea.
What you put into Korea, is what you will get out of Korea; it will not spoon feed you.

Digging into something 3 months into the past eh? Nothing better to do I suppose. If ranting is part of your daily life, I really do feel sorry for you :(. You must be wildly unhappy. Perhaps get a puppy? I hear those things are super cute and makes people happy.

The health care system has got my goat this week.  I'm really irritated by the fact that family members either have to take care of their loved ones while they're in the hospital, or find and pay someone to do it if they can't.  My wife was at the hospital from the time she got off work Friday night, until the time she went to work Monday morning.  Then, because she couldn't find a helper who could come in on Monday and Tuesday, her dad is at the hospital doing the duty.  And he really can't afford to be missing work.  The only positive would be that her stay thus far hasn't bankrupted any of us yet.

My high school has mid-terms this week, and all the other teachers in the room are off proctoring exams.  So all these little f*uckers are buzzing around MY desk and MY tea cup and MY computer and MY face because that's where the action apparently is.  >:(

Isn't this the nonsense that caused the MERS outbreak in the first place? Wasn't there some public campaign to increase the number of nurses and improve hospital care ASAP?

I guess we'll have to wait till the next deadly infectious disease outbreak.

I can help here! Go to Lotte Mart or somewhere and buy Apple (cider) vinegar, I find the Heinz brand from Lotte the best 'cause that stuff has a powerful odour and put about 2 or 3 drops (not squeezes) of dish washing soap into a small container and half fill with the vinegar. Put it near the bastards and watch in glee as they drown/poison themselves. Well... don't watch it takes a while but if you have cleaned and thrown away all sources of food for them they will over the course of an evening pretty much exterminate themselves. But remember not too much soap or they will realise. Good luck!

meh, I must not have been on the last thread of the page, but thought I was.

So no digging on my part.

Still though.

Plus, I thought Sejeong told us we need to read every page of all the 90 page threads to prevent re-post or something....  :rolleyes:

Apparently 5 am is the ideal time to throw a bunch of scrap wood and metal into a flat bed that's been left out after they cleaned inside and around the building.

Yep it's also the perfect time to collect all the cans from the recycling bins to crush them and move them into another bin (while listening to loud music).

And 10pm is the perfect time for announcements on the apartment's internal PA system, Midnight is the perfect time for a furniture-throwing argument with your spouse, and 3am is the perfect time for a cigarette and a lung-hack right outside someone's open window.

Oh my god, I was sick and went to bed early once this summer and they made an announcement at like 11PM.  Nearly gave me a f*cking heart attack! I'd say think of the children, but apparently children in my complex don't have bedtimes...  :rolleyes:

Not really a rant, but at one of my schools, whenever I'm free the cleaning lady will come into my classroom (without knocking, of course) and try to have a conversation (in Korean), at least 3 times a day. She speaks so fast, and I've gathered that it's always about something different. This has been going on since the beginning of the year and always ends with mild frustration, on both ends, and her eventually leaving with a polite greeting... Only to return later, to check if I've somehow mastered Korean in the time between now and her last visit.

What she wants, whenever she nearly gives me a heart attack whenever she barges in is a complete mystery.

Turns out my school has a super-clean teachers-only bathroom. Not sure how I missed it for 20 months. The student-bathrooms are horrendous.
