Today I learned that ‘entitled’ means reminding a person less than tactfully that they agreed to an obligation they have not fulfilled within a timely manner.
I was told that she, “didn’t owe me anything”. Except that I asked for something, she agreed to it, and then she pretended like that never happened.
“Don’t be a dishonest person and agree to things you have no intention on holding yourself accountable to. Don’t attempt to shame me for asking for what I need when you had the freedom to say yes OR no.”
Or I should have said, “I have learned my lesson that you can’t be trusted to mean or keep your word.”
That basically translates to “I don’t trust you.”
All because in October it seemed totally reasonable she could get me a pair of gloves for Christmas BEFORE Christmas.
Another day in Korea, another day of Korean men beating up women in public.
I found out about this viral video through a Facebook link to this blog.
I clearly am somewhat biased, but there have been videos of groups of men drinking soju on the a much more crowded subway car in the middle of the floor. Sure, smoking on the subway is wrong. So is most of the things Koreans do because something being illegal isn’t the same as it being prohibited. This is a country that still struggles with corruption and views age, money, and power as irrefutable “might makes right” conditions. However, male is better than female, so a man making some scene is ignored while a woman making a scene is physically assaulted.
So, there is your fix of daily life in Korea. Women getting put in their place by force.
