"Oh, you're studying Korean, right?"
"Yes." I replied.
"I will help you. I want to learn English, so you can help me and I will help you. Give me your phone number" and she shoved her phone at me so I could type in my phone number.
"uh.... ok... " I replied, not knowing what to do. Frankly, I don't need a conversation partner with someone this pushy. I put in my phone number. The doors opened for her to get off at the 3rd floor, but she followed me up to the 6th.
"Let's meet on Saturday, at 7:30. I'll help you study."
"Uh.... I have Korean class then. " which isn't completely the truth, but it's not completely a lie either...
"Ok, I'll call you later. My name is ㅇ아ㅣㄹ." (actually I don't remember her name/ don't care) and she jumped back into the elevator and I went to my class that much later because of this annoyance.
Why does this woman feel as though she can so abruptly assume that I need a conversation partner? I have plenty of people that I can practice with and I don't need some stranger shoving a phone in my face to practice with. I guess I shouldn't complain. She was trying to be nice (/ get free English lessons with someone who can speak some Korean) but this is just so rude! If she calls, maybe I'll tell her that I work crazy hours and can't meet or something.... or that I'm leaving the country, since I am in a month anyway. ^^
