I have made some great friendships at some of my jobs. One of them is Matt, a guy from Korea that was a programmer with me at CPS. I have a lot of friends from that place, more than any other I worked at but I had a very close relationship with Matt. I was really into Korean culture back then and I had even started to learn some minor phrases. I had been practicing Tae Kwon Do for about a year when I started to work for the company and Matt opened up to me because I knew so much about his culture. He was a very quiet and reserved man that spent all of his free time with his family. We would go to lunch almost every day and talked about culture, life and of course work. He would bring me Korean food or treats… and one day gave me the coaster pictured here. He was a very good person to work with and even got me into playing go. I am not as good as him, but I do enjoy the game. I remember that during the world cup I got him the Korean national team jersey and he was very thankful for it. It feels good when people appreciate what you do for them.
I kept my coaster along with my desk toys until now. They have been moved from job to job. It was not until recently that I looked closely at the coaster… and what did I find pR0n!
It is not just your regular kind of pR0n, it looks like an ancient painting but there is definitely nipples there. The funnies part is that it was not until I showed a coworker here that he noticed some pervert looking at the girls in the background.
