    Watch Where you Walk! Grrr!!

    This is my daily rant. Usually I have a lot of patience, and can tolerate the insane shit that goes on here in the land of the morning calm (ya right!). I live in a city of 20 million inhabitants.

    Some days just get on my nerves more than others. I was in a rush this evening, trying to get from work to my Muay Thai class, and I was trying to rush around people. What is wrong with Koreans who wander aimlessly, and don't watch where they are walking. They just walk, like they are space cadets. They will bump into you, like you are riding bumper cars at the amusement park. I often say move out of my way in a loud voice, but they don't understand. What they do understand is a good pushin. Often I'll just push them and walk through them, like they do to get around.

    I'll be walking, and one will cut in front of me, while talking to their kboy on their sparkly samsung phones. Get off the fucking phone and pay attention to where you are going. Move for people, it can't be that difficult. Just have some basic courtesy stupid people. Grr!

    Well now that I got that off my chest. I feel better. Today is another day in the concrete jungle. I'm thinking of wearing my knee pads, and boxing gloves to walk to school, and just punch and knee people out of my way.. haha.

    Does anything annoy you where you live?

    Fvck I don't know what you are going to do once you make it to Phuket?

    Better make sure you get an apartment on the ground floor as you will be contemplating suicide with that attitude and by the way keep off the steriods.

    ^^Yes, I do see the irony in it..and I'm sick of being all nicey nicey. It doesn't work.

    ^haha! Not an attitude, just a rant. Been here three years, and know how it is. Just letting off some steam. So, nothing bugs you about Thailand?

    Carry an assault weapon held out in front of you as you walk.

    ^^Yes why don't you just do that, then write a nice thread about the experience from your convalescence home.

    If your life was going nowhere you wouldn't be in a rush to get there either.

    Huh. No different from Tokyo, BKK, Chinktown in Vancouver. Gotta learn the inner contentment mode, PB. Then nothing will bother you. Not even Marmers.

    I loved knocking Kimchistanis out of the way.

    It made me feel good about myself.

    ^Yeah, they do, it just doesn't bug them. It's not my fault that they are a poor excuse for manners.

    I bet it did. Did you kill any of them in the process?

    You obviously have never lived in Korea. ..

    That's the thing, they are always in a rush to get somewhere.. heart attack alert!

    What really got me today was the Konglish signs that I see everywhere.

    I saw this posted on an apt. one time.






    Is this a woman sign with a man on it? How gay is that.



    Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse!

    Oh dear. . . KW said something similar in another thread . . .

    It does seem, though, that PB is cruising for a bruising. . . as it were.
