So I just got off the phone, explaining to the PLUS loan lender that it takes 25 days for my Korean bank to clear an American check and that even though I get my first paycheck tomorrow, I still have to find a break in my work schedule to make it physically to the bank to fill out an overseas remittance form to my U.S. bank account and I don’t know how long that takes to process. Could I get a shift in my payment date please?
Sure. No shift allowed. Only a one month forbearance.
42 minutes and 47 seconds later.
That equals 2,567 sconds.
At 18 won a second, that equals 46,206 won.
At approximately 1,500 won per $1, that equals $30.80
It’s 3 a.m. and I haven’t figured out tomorrow’s lesson plan to the teachers yet, which includes my boss…
Please let tomorrow work. I pray.
May there be viable wireless internet signals everywhere.
May all the classrooms have working monitors.
May paychecks actually electronically be deposited in bank accounts.
May sleep-starved teachers wake with the dawn and get to school on time.
May sleep-starved Korean children get some rest.
May all orphans know their own names.
