I gently reminded a friend he maybe shouldn’t be talking with a mouthful of food (a real big mouthful, with fried chicken, vegetables and rice) when he’s two foot away from me. I said maybe girls wouldn’t like it. He had girl trouble.
He thought for a moment and said he’d probably continue eating and talking because it was “more efficient”.
This is a dude who watches Wolf of Wall street, and other High Finance flicks, works for a big 4 accounting firm, and wants to be an investment banker in the USA.
He flat out thinks he’s socially above foreigners who come to TW, and hinted that a few times.
Then he goes talking with a mouthful of muck, like that.
F**k it. Im sure this is the 9th circle of hell. Like, the mildest hell, but still hell.
I’m neither here nor there with masks. I don’t mind wearing them. But when I’m surrounded by filthy fuckers who bathe once a week and consider putting their hands under a tap for a second “washing your hands”, I’m all for them.
We digress. Let’s get back to that hot topic: GUM!
I think their reasoning is that vaccines dont stop spreading this virus. Whether masks are right or wrong, I believe that is their reason. the vaccines’ dont do certain things.
On chewing gum with masks on. my original point remains valid. a professional that requires oral clarity shouldn’t be chewing things. You dont see lectures by professionals while they chew gum. Maybe the farmer extension teaching folks what chemicals to spray their rice with, but not schools. It is frowned upon. I would equally agree that chewing gum, food, betel nut or anything else, while in lesson, isnt very professional. Chew before class, after or in a job that doesnt require clear sound waves coming from your mouth It might be judgemental, but i think everyone looks at a chewer, especially one that makes sounds (never mind the open mouth chewing cave folks) in a certain light. it isnt a clean, tidy professional look, no matter how one swings it. Same with smoking. Smoke at home. before class etc. all fine. but dont go into a job having that nasty mouth stench. Chewing gum during class doesnt help, it looks worse and still smells.
Anyone that thinks that is ok has no right about to talk smack about the food spraying open mouther bringing stinky tofu into the train after a hot day in the sun and not showering But, ift hey do do that, I guess they have the right to think the customer can chew gum. as the service provider, one is suppose to be professional towards the customer. the students in above case
First off, it’s repulsive, watching somebody manipulate a nasty piece of coloured resin in their mouth.
Second, you shouldn’t talk with something in your mouth. That’s good manners, or so I’ve been taught.
Third, it’s childish. Gum is for kids.
These are the opinions of Superking, and of Superking only.
