This week a parent called the 학원 where I worked demanding you

know if any of the foreign teachers went clubbing in Itaewon this weekend. While I understand completely why she is worried, I’m a little offended that she thinks only the foreign teachers would do that. In fact, none of us ever go clubbing. We’re all taking Covid-19 really seriously, and we’re following every recommendation from the KCDC, our local governments, and from our employer... why do the parents think that only we would be reckless??? Every day, I see young people outside without masks in big groups around the city?

    @PHILLIP to an extent, I understand. I know lots of foreigners go to Itaewon and stuff, but from where we live, going all the way to Itaewon is not really convenient. And what’s more, most of the foreign teachers I work with are much older than me... not really the age demographic to go clubbing. And most parents have met us.

    @Sasha 사샤 well, as I said, they can be annoying lol. Sometimes, they dont think rationally as they only think about their kid's safety and stuff. I even have a friend who works at kindergarten. She complains a lot about mothers 😓

    @PHILLIP haha yeah, moms can be really intense, that’s for sure. Like, I get it. They’re children are the most precious things in the world to them, but they don’t consider that every mom for every kid in their class feels the same way. So sometimes trying to satisfy every mother is really impossible lol

    @Evelyn ahhh okay. No, I didn’t understand what you meant well. Yeah, I think anyone who’s going clubbing right now is pretty foolish.

    @Evelyn yeah, I’m still grateful to be in Korea during this though. People in the US are being even more selfish. It’s kind of scary.

    억울하시겠어요ㅠㅠ 이태원 클럽에서 covid19 확진자가 나왔고 그 확진자는 바이러스 전염성이 높은 시기였습니다. 한국인들은 일반적으로 젊은 외국인이 한국에서 교류하기 위해 이태원 클럽을 많이 다닌다고 생각합니다. 그래서 학부모들이 선생님들도 걱정했던 것 같습니다. 저희는 정부지침을 잘 따르고 있으니 걱정마시라고 든든하게 얘기해주세요! 그럼 믿고 안심할 꺼예요~!!

    Because they always need to release their anger to someone. They think blaming some group make them look cool and thoughtful mother. These days many of people call like them who doesn't care about other people, mom chung. It means insect mother. Don't worry about it too much there are always rude people around here.

    First You’ve got beautiful color of your hair. 🙋 Ufortunately, Yes there is. There are many discrimination against foreigner for sure. In my opinion, as a foreigner we’re forced to take some compulsory duties as well. I am in Sri Lanka where I become a foreigner. Some people say Korona to me. They are teasing by saying Korean to Korona. I feel l were the virus itself and there are some more. I just remind myself that he is uneducated. Rest of the other people in here are all nice, gentle and very polite. Sorry it is too long. In brief, please don’t take the parent as if he were common in Korean. The others are sure to thank you as a great teacher. Please be calm and relax. Act as usual, I know and you boss knows you’re doing utmost to help stop spreading the virus. I am not saying only be patient. Appeal to cover you from bad rumors from the parents. I hope you can understand my mind with this poor English skill.
