Why does everyone insist on backing in their car at COSTCO.  Are they morons or what?  They come back their car and can't get the cart to the back of their car to load all the stuff. So it takes them 10 extra minutes to carry everything slowly to the back.  Meanwhile, there are no parking spaces.  Do they even think or use logic or simply follow what everyone else is doing?  Like backing in is some sort of rule.  God damn it.

If you back in, you pull out. If you pull in, you back out. It's the same thing so I don't understand why you MUST back in, especially considering the reason you said.
Backing is higher risk than going forward.

Backing into a spot is lower risk than backing out because there is no cross traffic when you are backing in.

Driving out is lower risk than backing out because your field of vision is wider.

Most companies that have driver safety training tell people to back into spots.  In fact, in some Canadian provinces, it is illegal to back onto a roadway.

I go nose-in at Costco (I park on the roof at Yangjae) because it makes loading easier, but I still back in everywhere else.

It's also easier to sqeeze your car into a tight parking space when you are reversing. Simple physics. That is why most Korean drivers reverse park. Because the parking bays are very narrow at most places. Costco ones are actually wide enough for front first parking but most people are so used to the reverse way, they just do it like that at Costco as well.

even 5 and 6 grade elementary school? they don't wear uniforms, or leave their coats unattended. most of the time, when i say, "uh, take off your coat", they act surprised like, "oh! good idea!", so i genuinely think they hadn't thought of doing that, which baffles me

No, I don't think that's the case for elementary school, just for older students. I've insisted in the past that they take off their coats, and they've refused to do it over and over again until, once the coT is out of hearing range, they finally break down and tell me why they don't want to take off their coats, lol.

At primary school level, it could be because they're always being told to bundle up during cold weather, and will get scolded for not doing it or for taking their coats off, so after a while it probably doesn't really sink in that taking their coats off is an option even when their parents aren't around to tsk them over it.

Once the temperatures drop down to a certain point, many Korean families insist on having the heat cranked way up and to keep bodies as warm as possible, especially for kids. Some push it to the point of being unhealthy. There's a very strong aversion to cold temperatures here.

Many kids in East Asia don't remove their coats inside because their parents tell them not to, as well.

Cold is bad for your health, don't you know. Being cold AT ALL is bad for your health. But if you wear a coat, you will magically stay warm, even if you have been sitting for eight hours where every single other person is like>

*slams open every window*
*leaves all the doors wide open*
*pointedly turns off heat whenever you touch it*

"I don't understand why you're cold, teacher, you're wearing a coat."

...sigh....

yeah, you could be right. it's like when i ask "hands up who likes candy" and some students insist they don't like it. then, when pressed, it's because their parents don't let them eat it, so they say they don't like it. same with pizza, chocolate, or anything else all kids love. some kids in korea live pretty deprived lives, it seems. not allowed any foods kids love, studying 10 hours a day, never see their dads, aren't allowed to watch tv, etc. christ.

You knows it's bad in your building when you look forward to coming to school to find some quiet time.  Yet another weekend my c*k sucking neighbor had the music cranked for 12+ hours, Sat. and Sun.  The topper was having to listen to him rabbit f*ck some girl in the building.  But this usually only lasts a good 5~10 mins.  Yay for me, but kina sad for her!

Maybe their parents don't give them candy because it's basically poison. Don't poison people you love or care about.

Also candy is gross.

Candy is bad for you, but children should be allowed to experience the same childhood pleasures that their friends are allowed to enjoy.

My favorite part of winter is how everyone decides it's a good idea to leave all the doors and windows wide open in the hallways. Yes, let ALL the cold air in

Why I will never do a number 2 at school.

They're doing construction on the exterior of the building, so drills and hammers bashing away.
To sooth my soul, my CT and a HR teacher have been sitting in the office singing Christmas and Church hymns in the key of 'H', for the past 2hrs! Anywhere other than the office is colder than the planet Hoth.

Shoot me, please!

Big deal.  My apartuh is situated directly above a big intersection, where roadwork has been going on since shortly after I moved there, March, 2016.

Since it's such a busy intersection, the roadwork has been done at night, from 8 PM until about 5:30 AM.  I have not had an uninterrupted night's sleep in all that time.  They finally finished last week.

Two hours! Pshaw.
