    I think one of the reasons they complain is because that is what they do at home. If you live in North America, you complain. If you live in Canada, you complain about the weather. You complain about the noise of your neighbors, you complain about your job, kid’s, house, wife, husband, mother,father,sister, dog, cat, cloths, hair, face, T.V., movies, the cable guy, the dish washer.

    We are complainers. No doubt about it. And I for one would like to say, it’s good to be in a country where I can’t understand the language because I’m sick and tired of listening to other people complain!!!!!!
    Why they complain when they’re in Korea, because, they’re in Korea. Don’t take it personally, and don’t take it seriously.
    However, there are people who are very happy with themselves and don’t complain. So please don’t think we are all the same, cause we’re sooooooooo not!!!!
