Mr. C (and Toiling Ajumma a.k.a. KG) purposefully ignores the meaning of the comma, misreading the sentence in a Beavis&Butthead way: https://youtu.be/SL1sLcV4vr4

Help others, especially animals. Say what you think, being considerate of others. Appreciate more than deprecate. Teach well and jump on teachable moments. Enjoy Korea as it is, without changing it. Yet, at times, change your life for the better. "The most important [thing] is to have a good day."

I think you need to be more careful with your writing. Your sentences are easily misconstrued. I'm sure there is a poster on here who once wrote for a newspaper, perhaps, you can get some tips from them. Good luck, Van!

Raining quite hard this morning. Of course, I'm a real man and don't need an umbrella. Every man I passed had a look of weakness and submission in their eyes. And the women were giving me the eyes. A few even unlinked arms with their boyfriends after seeing a real alpha man walking in the rain. However, now that I'm at my desk I'm shivering a little from being wet and cold. The price of being a real man.

Your sentence was ungrammatical.  I pointed that out to humerous effect.  That is all.

Humorous?

As a professional English language teacher you should know full well: that sentence had an ellipsis. Online communication follows the rules of conversation more than book publishing.

Factory workers punch clocks, and 7-Eleven workers [do likewise].

Applying the charity principle of interpretation - and moving with the serious part of one's thinking - results in a clear reading of its meaning.

Yanking chains is your lot?

Dude, your sentence was ungrammatical. Admit so, or be a child.
