So one of my students was away all last week. She comes back to class on Monday and it turns out she was in the Philippines. Today we've found out she got swine flu and I taught her on Monday so the health department fucks have told me not to go to work until the 13th, that is, if I don't come down with swine flu in the mean time.
I know foreigners who are coming from overseas have been told not to go to work for one week after they come to/get back to Korea but what about the Koreans going overseas? This obviously doesn't apply to them (Koreans) or at least this student's parents thinks so. Now I don't mind a week off work but I'll probably lose some money because of it but my big worry is my young son getting it from me or from being at the hagwon yesterday for a visit. I feel fine now so hopefully I didn't get it from her .
STUPIDMORONIC FUCKING PARENTS for sending her to our hagwon the day after she got back from the Philippines but oh no those dirty foreigners have to be quarantined if they've been overseas but the pure Han race are immune with their kimchi .
I also have to now cancel, and lose money because of it, our trip to Chejudo this weekend. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR for fuck sake!!!!!
. . .
As for the health department DICKS, I'm the only teacher who's been told no to go to work for a week. Not one of the Korean teachers or my wife (Korean) who's wangjang have been told not to go to work for a week . I guess us 'dirty' foreigners are more susceptible to get swine flu. MY FUCKING ARSE WE ARE! Koreans with their almost nonexistent hygine standards definitely are, and worse just don't give a fuck so spread it around to everyone else without a care in the world.
Go ahead and read the rest. The Herald says yesterday the Ministry of Health confirmed an additional ten Koreans had swine flu, nine of whom recently returned from overseas trips.
