FALSE ADVERTISING?A Grain of salt

False advertising in Korea drives me crazy.

I hate people and companies who are intentionally misleading and think nothing of lying. Barbershop poles are misleading. You can’t imagine how many times I would enter a place with two spinning barber poles, thinking I was going to get a haircut, and being shocked with what really goes on there. And, after about 90 minutes, I usually voice my objections very strongly to the woman wearing a bikini.

Another example of false advertising is wedding rings. In Korea the vast majority of married women do not openly wear their wedding rings. How the hell am I supposed to know which women I can hit on and which ones I should stay away from? Married women, don’t be offended if western men suggest going to a love-mote

l. We simply can’t tell whether or not you are off-limits.
Viciously short skirts is another example of false advertising in Korea.
Women who tempt us with flimsy skirts are perhaps suggesting, “Take me. Ravage me. Do unspeakably delightful things to my quivering body.” Boy, how many times have I misread that.

Finally, “Don’t worry” drives me crazy. When a Korean tells me not to worry, that is the time I start to worry. “Doctor, what’s this huge lump on my neck??” “Oh, don’t worry about it.” That’s when I make funeral arrangements and say goodbye to my loved ones.

Look, Korea, just be up-front with us and stop all this false advertising and we’ll get along just fine. Please consider that with a grain of salt.
