The Guy at the Restaurant on Friday

Dear Guy at the Restaurant,

I saw you walk in with the three girls. I watched you all sit down and I saw you launch into your exhortation of your companions to use chopsticks. You held them up to the one girl and kept saying, ‘like this, like this. do it like this.’  I must say that while technically your style was correct, you lost points both for how low and tightly cramped you held them and for being an ass. And then, when your food came, you started to eat with your chopsticks so you could show off your Chopstick Skills and impress the Ladies. But you made one mistake.  Dude, NOBODY eats BiBimBap with chopsticks.  How gauche can you be?  You thought you’d impress them with your skills and maybe you did, but it was obvious to any and everyone else who knew anything about Korea that you had been there maybe one year and had done the usual ex-pat round which pretty much peaks in getting to know the drinking culture.  If you had had to depend on your so-called chopstick skills to survive, you would be a much thinner, deader man today.
Word of advice: next time, leave the chopsticks to the professionals.
