Had lunch with the girl from the supermarket today. We talk almost everyday, and last week I finally had the idea to do a language exchange. Exchanging numbers last night, she asked if I knew her name, and I did, from her nametag. She didn’t know mine even though we’ve been talking for almost 7 months! Overall it was a very good lunch and though we spoke mostly English, she helped me finish my Korean class homework.

She did get mad, however, because I used two hands to hand her things and she said that because I was older, she had to be polite to me (using polite forms and word endings in text messages and in conversation) and that she had to use two hands when serving me, not the other way around. And by mad, I mean close to pissed.
