To be fair, Vietnamese New Year is awesome.
Now that's using your tÍte.

That's offensive.

Does anybody really understand the Sunday shop closing rules?

In Anyang today we couldn't find fried chicken for lunch, but lots of BBQ places to choose from.

I always assumed that if a shop was closed on a Sunday and it wasn't a big box grocer that they were doing it for personal or religious reasons. Gobongmin Gimbap is like that. Is there a rule?

Yeah, I'd agree with Donadlo and I'll also chime in that they probably open on a Sunday night. Fried chicken is more of a night time food than a day time food I'd say.

Maybe they were open later, but we tried three places. Restaurants usually do good business on Sunday lunch with both the heathen crowd and the after church crowd.

something i was thinking about yesterday

they love those tv shows that shows the inside of celebrity houses in korea. but they always look so empty inside

big empty room, with an ugly sofa in the corner. maybe one of those lazyboy chairs, a mat to sit on in the centre, maybe an exercise bike, tv and tv stand. but that's it. devoid of any interior design

maybe just cultural differences, but it irks me. shrug

I wish they always just put holidays on the Monday. I know a day off is a day off, but having it in the middle of the week just means we essentially have two Mondays to deal with in the space of a week  :laugh: :cry:

Getting my kids back on track after a mid-week holiday is like herding cats. They don't want to do anything because they just had a day off, and the weekend is just a day or two away. While a holiday is a holiday, I guess, I would greatly prefer a Monday or a Friday off.

My most disruptive school is on a Wednesday, normally I'd agree. But I'm SUPER happy about having this Wednesday off for a 2nd week. :p

You seriously need to report them. I thought my coteacher last year was psychotic, but your MT takes the cake.

 basically my Mt came to me and told me I had to pay $40 a month for the monthly hweshiks.

I had to pay 3 months in advance and I asked if I could wire her the money and she said that cash was better. This was like my second week at the school and I still trusted her and we were told during orientation that we probably would have to pay a couple months up front so I didn't really think to question it.

Yesterday the head teacher asked me if I had gone to any of the dinners and I told him no, that I had never been invited.

I asked him when they were, he said the school only has one once a semester but every month the teachers will get together and have one.

Part of me knew that they were just purposely not inviting me, but another part of me was just hoping that there hadn't been one. But nope looks like I got ****** scammed.

Report her, make a scene. Everything happening is unacceptable. You need to put that woman in her place.
