I Never Wear Shoes Inside in Korea. Why, You Ask?

Yep. That's definitely what you think it is.

Yep. That’s definitely what you think it is.

No, it’s not an act of cultural respect. No, I’ve not gone native. This country is literally covered in puke, from sidewalk to…bus…window. That’s puke. On the window. Running down to the floor. Somehow, someone’s puked on the window. I may never wear shoes inside again.

      Seriously everywhere. I sometimes wonder if piss and vomit will be on my chair at work when I get in.

    I would never take my shoes off. I would NOT want to step in any of that. Disgusting.

      Well, if you don’t take off your shoes when you go inside then there’s puke and pee in your apartment! Ewwww…
