Stuff: No more motels!

Cultural note #427 (on Korea) states:
Never make promises to meet anyone inside, outside, at, or near a motel. This applies, even if the people whom you are meeting, stays AT that motel, be it for legitimate or non-legitimate purposes, a.k.a. shagging someone other than the officially recognized 'partner'. Motels with discretely curtained car parking facilities are not exempted from this rule.

Save yourself the embarrassment, because you never know who else you will bump into.
It was 7pm, so a colleague and I were waiting at a motel lobby for two other guys staying there. They are colleagues, in town for another project. We were meeting for dinner.

Ten minutes into the wait, we bump into someone else I knew. Whoa! Yes... he was there for a shag with a woman whom I did not recognize, presumably a 'working girl'. I personally wouldn't do it, but I've got nothing against him having a go at it ~ it's his choice. But it was just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo embarrassing!

After handshakes were exchanged and grins with heads lowered, we parted, each to our own business...

I will NEVER, EVER, for the life of me, till the END OF ETERNITY, would want to go through that embarrassment again!

Note on why I think this cultural note applies to Korea ~ Read 'HERE'.

One wonders what the woman thought after she saw two more men. Maybe she though it was to be a 'party.'
