Heard on the Subway

I was on the subway with Lime last night — she dropped into town by chance and I just happened to get my malfunctioning phone working and call her before she gave up and left — and we heard the funniest conversation, or rather, one side of it. The young woman sitting beside her said, “… soju dubeyong…” in the most gleeful tone.

Lime translated the conversation this way:

“Well, if you got yourself a job, you could eat like me. I have a bunch of nice seafood for dinner, and two bottles of soju, and then some coffee, and beer… (pause) Okay, but if you got yourself a real job, not just crappy part-time work, you could afford to eat like that too.” Then the girl got off the subway.

It was quite amusing.
