he could…..if he knew how to use tumblr….he knows very little to no English….ha his favorite phrase is “somebody help me, what’s going on” I think he got it from a video game…a car game that runs people over?
AND if he did start his own blog it’d be filled with places he’d want to go and mostly food he’d want to eat…..mostly fried…..mostly fattening….you should see the blogs he follows….so much 돈까스 and 떡볶이 just no…
Husband is coming home early from work today (still gonna be about 8 pm) so I’m making him his favorite kimchi jjigae with tuna!!! sooooo yummy (its probably more my favorite…ha) but he has given me a warning….if I talk about tumblr drama to him one more time, he’s gonna make me delete my blog….I miss having my girlfriends from the states….but then again if I was in the states I’d probably wouldn’t be blogging! ha….
Drama in the tumblr community is just redonkulous…..I told my husband (a red hot blooded typical Korean man with wholesome Korean values and thoughts) about all of this. He knows Hartinseoul and Jong Ho, he knows her character as well. He doesn’t understand 80% of the things that come out of her mouth because…well because he doesn’t speak English….He didn’t really understand what the big deal was about the issue (with our language barrier I had to dumb it down a bit…I know right? how do you dumb down this shit??) So I made up this analogy…..
"Today I went outside, I saw pigs flying into the green sky and it was amazing!"
I asked Husband, what is the point to this story?? he responds, “that the pigs were flying?” I say bingo!! BUT all these mother fuckers want to talk about how I said the sky was green….throwing hard evidence and facts and links and proving the one thing I said was wrong….Husbands response? “what a bunch of psychos!” Hartinseoul probably didn’t mean to cause a stir with her “information” she wasn’t even trying to educate anyone about Korean government, the oppressed in Korea, etc, yet some people got offended and what’s even funnier is what Husband said after that…..why do so many 외국인’s (foreigners) care so much about what Koreans hardly care about? why are a bunch of 외국인’s (foreigners) fighting over something that has NOTHING to do with them….I laughed….I told him that thats just what people do…..anyway I digress….Hartinseoul probably could have handled the situation better but she didn’t and she didn’t want to and none of what she said by the way makes her a racist….
Racism is discrimination plus power….which is not what Hartinseoul has right now just because she had an opinion OR shared some information (that she never claimed was factual) on her blog doesn’t and shouldn’t make her a target for a racist….calling someone a racist or blaming them for racism is interpersonal racism on it’s own…..it’s like the pot calling the kettle black….and it’s ignorant. Hartinseoul is no Paula Deen.
"If there is anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard that it kills me." Paula Deen
it’s 납품 day at the office~ we had our 취합 last Wednesday (kind of like a deadline for all the electronic files) and now the documents are being delivered today! I love today’s because they need someone to go into Yongsan to hand deliver the documents and I am the ONLY person in my company that has access to the base….it takes most people a couple of hours to do this because they have to wait outside the gate and have people come to them, whereas it takes me 20minutes then I leave to go home!! YES!
girl~ Husband starts at 8:30am and supposed finish time is 6:30 too or 7:30 I can’t remember! but he NEVER finishes then…..like only once or twice this past year he’s been back at the company~ annoying
That sucks! Husband walked in AS I was typing that post! ha I swear that is the only thing I hate about Korea, they work people to death, get paid NO overtime (or they promise it in vacation times, which you can never take because your’re so fucking busy) and it’s just ridiculous! I’m always asking him and his 부장님 (we all use to work together at my company so we’re all really close)
”세상에서 일 당신들만 혼자 하냐고? 출근시간 지켰으면 퇴근시간도 지켜야하는게 아니라고? 왜 사람 잡아먹을려고하는지 이해못하겠다!”
I said this to the 부장님 over dinner 2 weeks ago…..he said he didn’t want to be there either but they had no choice, I say fuck it! I am here 9am on the dot (ok…sometimes 9:05) and I leave 6pm ON THE MOTHER FUCKING DOT! but I have no 눈치….(or 개념) ha I’d rather play the ignorant American role than have to stay at work a minute longer than I need too….no matter how much work you have you’re not going to finish it today….so why not do it tomorrow (which you still won’t finish)…
I say up yours Korea companies ㅗ^.^ㅗ
