I used to have Korean colleagues at work and it pisses me off when they knock on the door of the comfort room even if it clearly states in the lock that it is OCCUPIED. Cant they read? rude? or is it in their culture? I think they should be sensitive to other locals in the Philippines. If they are in the PH, they should act accordingly to the norms of the Filipinos. If they are in their own country, they can do whatever! I find it very annoying especially if I am the one inside the Comfort room or cubicle. Ive told quite a few koreans about this. " Stop knocking and WAIT FOR YOUR TURN!" I hope someone teaches them regarding manners!

Oh yes, the koreans Ive met are rude, inconsiderate and so thick faced! I was at a comfort room in one of the coffee shops somewhere in Ortigas and I did not take long. I usually take 3 min max. 2 koreans keeps on knocking on the door. Makes me want to trip on them when they came out of the store as I was outside. Next time people would knock on me... I swear, I will purposely take very long inside. Filipinos do not knock.. they wait, and so should they! If they wont follow what we Fil are doing here, they better just go home and buy some manners in their own country. One time in Starbucks,8 koreans took 2 tables, took 4 more chairs and sat. They DID NOT ORDER anything!! They just asked for paper cups and brought the pitcher of water in the table where the thermos of milk and half and halfs are and they just drank water and are so noisy as if they never have been in a coffee shop in all their lives. Then LEFT afterwards! goodness! so thick faced! what about the paying customer? they wont be able to sit because they had hogged all the seats already.. just drinking FREE WATER.
