Fair enough.
Are you sure about that 250 million market value? That would be a terrible return for your landlord. Not even 3% which is very very low return on a real estate.
Anyways, it's not my business. I just find those figures very odd.

first off, I'll say I'm not into all the house stuff and interest rates and yields etc, just that I got the 교차로 and 벼룩시장 for a few weeks and studied the prices and mostly the range for the apartments for 월세 1000/60 to 2000/40 and the 매매 was between 2억 to 2억5000 for 30/34 pyeong.   apparently, she bought it for 2억2000 a couple of years ago, now from looking at the other prices it's in the 2억4000/5000 region.  actually, the current owner of my apartment wanted to sell last year, but the estate agent told him to wait for a year because last year the apartment complex I'm moving into was opening, so there was a flood of new apartments meaning he'd get less and/or find it harder to shift.  my new owner is a sweet old lady as I met her on Friday for the contract signing and we had a chat, so I don't think her first thought is that she is a hard business person, which is fine by me.  the guy moving out is a Buddhist so he was very minimalist in the apartment and everything was so clean  :cheesy: and also as he wakes up at 3am, I'd noticed he had no curtains up in the apartment.

The Thom Yorke tickets were selling really slowly. I was surprised.

I kind of regret not getting 1975 tickets, but like, I also feel like that crowd might be kind of obnoxious.

in our most recent lesson, i told our students that in america, unless you are in a flea market (or some type of bargaining situation), you can't really bargain in stores. like, you can't ask someone from Trader Joe's for a discount.

so later, we played a game and the teams had to tell me which expression that we learned in class isn't actually used in America, which is "can i get a discount?"

one student immediately screams: F*** YOU!!!
me & the korean teacher:.....*dumbfounded at what just happened
student: yeah! you can't say it in America!!
me: ....omg... i'm talking about what we LEARNED in CLASSSSSSSSSSSs

lol

he was way too eager to say that ;)

I got a seniors discount today at a drug store in Canada.

Iím 47.

I think the clerk was older than me.

:(

Whenever i go into Paris Baguette after 5pm they are all sold out of 90% of stock. The shelves are mostly empty. I can't get a loaf of bread or maybe a snack i am looking for. Same at Tous le Vous. What's the point of staying open to 10pm if you sell out of most stock by 5pm?  I understand that maybe they only have a baker in once a day in the morning to bake but if selling out seems to be a regular occurrence then surely you could make a bit more bread. It's actually quite difficult for me to get a loaf during the week because they are not open a 7am before work and then by 5:30 they are usually sold out.

Beverages are their best selling and highest profit margin items. And lots of people drink coffee or go sit in a cafe and chat in the evening.

OK. That makes sense then. I thought maybe that could be part of the way they make their money. Also i meant to put my original post in the ranting thread but put it here by mistake. I guess you could consider my post as raving maybe.

Beat me to it basedcowboy.

The beverages are the big profit makers and where a good chunk of their business comes from.

Speaking of Paris baguette, and this being the happy thread. Last year, the cute lady who works in the nearby paris baguette gave me a free reusable eco bag with my purchase (I don't think it was a promotion / special, because she didn't think about it, until she was almost done packing my stuff into the plastic bag I brought with me. :D

It amazes me how much the Korean cafe bakery chains' coffee has improved over the years. It's still pretty bad. But it's like, drinkable?
Back in the day, it was literally just flavourless brown water.

It made me chuckle haha.

Loving the weather today. I haven't jogged outdoors in a while. If the air stays as "clean" as it is right now, I might give it a go tonight.

Which ones have you tried recently to bring about this new observation?

I only ever hear students say this while in my classroom whenever they're trying to get a reaction out of me, lol. Would be a nice change of pace to hear some adults say it just because they want me me to hear them say it. I'd feel so included. xD

One of my co-workers came back from Japan over the weekend and brought snacks back. Plus, one of the students brought snack bags for all the teachers in my office today.

Been trying to diet recently, but it's hard to say no to so many free snacks ;D

We got heavy rain and strong winds where I am in Jeollanamdo.
I got to work feeling like I put on all my clothes and then got into a cold shower.

It'll probably be Thursday when I go jogging next (though, I played badminton today!)

was rinsing out some DnB in my car as I approached school, and lowered the window to talk to some of my students.  'Woo, club music!', cue ten of my students start club dancing around my car.   :laugh:
