Dear Korea #117 – Bed, Bath, & Beyond Help

:

 

The situation in this week’s strip is one I haven’t actually dealt with in a long time. Still, when I first came to Korea, it was a mess. Even the little Korean I knew didn’t do much to help.

I think this is a problem a lot of expats deal with on a regular basis. It’s what initially stopped me from purchasing any form of technology here, as I was constantly worried that I wouldn’t know how to use it. Having a friend to explain how it works helps, but those language limitations really get in the way whenever something goes wrong.

I’ve been trying to improve, but it’s taking so much longer than I had hoped. Luckily, a peek into a couple of translating apps have done wonders in terms of helping me figure things out.
