Dear Korean Lady at the Korean Bookstore in the Korean Part of Town,
When you don’t have a book that you said you had over the phone, please do not waste 20 minutes pretending to look for it in the store. This is not Korea. You do not need to save face. You are wasting my time.
Additionally, when my fiancé asks you if we can order it, please do not say yes, then proceed to tell us that we should order it from another bookstore online, one which is more expensive. That makes no sense. Either order it for us or tell us to order it from your chain’s website. See above, re: this is not Korea, quit saving face.
Finally, yes I know the book is in Korean. You may have noticed that we are in…a Korean bookstore!
The Not-Customer Who Would Actually Like to Buy Something From You
You are all awesome. Three-way conference video chatting was tonight so you could all meet was neat. But George, why didn’t you have any questions for Good Man?
Please help me interpret things into Korean when we are all chatting because it is very hard for me to do it alone. Even though I mostly did an awesome job (except for when I ordered my mother to learn Korean).
Thank you for almost making me cry when you said you’re happy to have me as a daughter-in-law. I really wish we lived closer together.
Please let me take a personal day next Friday so we can do our thing.
