This is my first in a series of rants and raves at Korean living and lifestyle.

Luckily her eyes are closed

This week’s affliction is about lack of courtesy and hygiene when coughing and sneezing. Yesterday morning whilst waiting at the bus stop with my girlfriend and several Koreans. The cold wind was hitting us, strangers huddled like Penguins during their dark winters. A Korean woman next to me had a mild coughing fit, initial concern quickly changed to disgust as her coughing was directed at me. My medusa stare was too effective as she looked at me unflinching mid-whoop. Whilst obviously innocent, I was unamused and made a huge gesture of brushing her phlegm from my jacket.

    On the subway yesterday I had a man coughing and spulttering on everybody. He didn’t cover his mouth either. I think that’s why they all wear masks lol
