Arrested In South Korea

5 10 2008

My best friend is currently teaching in South Korea.  She called me the other day in a bit of a panic.  Apparently, one of the other teachers she works with was arrested because he did not have the proper Visa to teach English.  The problem? Either does she, and she has been teaching Art AS WELL as English.  She is afraid there will be police waiting there for her on Monday morning, so none of the other teachers have gone into work. Oy.  I told her to carry the number to the Canadian Consulate on her at all times. Haha.  Actually, the first thing I did when she told me this news was laugh.  This is my natural reaction to uncomfortable situations.  It would be a funny story to tell after the fact though.  A sweet blog post at that : “How I Got Arrested in Korea.”  Regardless, I found it amusing, and after a while so did she.

She also informed me about a boy she’s been seeing who told her she looked liked Spiderman? Errrrmmm? Miscommunication? Please see my earlier post “Do You Speak English?” about crossed lines of communication.  Also, below is a picture of one the t-shirts they were selling in Korea that she took a picture of.  For their own sakes, I really hope its just miscommunication.  Apparently though, it only came a close second to  a shirt a girl was wearing simply saying  “C***!”  Oh boy.

This almost makes me want to go to Korea. Almost.  And don’t be surprised if my next post is asking for donations to bail my best bud out of jail in Korea.  It’s gonna be a long trek I reckon.

The Tshirts was fun. And there is nothing that could beat the comment your friend received that she looked like Spiderman!! Well serious communication issues.
