* There is always music on in the toilets. Its generally classical or opera of the vein that makes me think of the Looney Tunes cartoons that are synchronized to the music, like the Barber of Seville with Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. I don't know if they are convinced that the music covers the sound of peeing but it doesn't.

* The people are also very loud. This year the foreigners/native English teacher departments teacher room has been combined with the secondary Korean teachers room. One room now includes nine bule, four Koreans who teach English, a Korean PE teacher, a Korean Mandarin teacher, a Korean grade five teacher and up until yesterday the Indonesian teacher. They sit about chattering like twittering birds, in high octaves at high decibels having tea time throughout the day. Someone brings in a snack and it's time for a chat and giggle and eat on the sofa. It's coffee time and they are at it again. I have no idea what they talk about only that its done loudly and often. Its a cacophony and they are oblivious to the fact that it's highly disruptive and irritating.

* They don't seem to realize there are many other very delicious types of food in the world. The cafeteria, the small supply shop and the hot snack bar all serve Korean food. There are a few other choices, namely Oreos, Cheetos and milk, but as you can see they are very few. I don't mind Korean food though it's not my favorite. What I can't fathom is eating the same thing every day. Kimchi, chicken katsu, rice, blah, blah, blah.
