Have you ever heard about the dog poop girl?
A few years ago a girl’s small dog pooped in a train in South Korea. When asked by other passengers to clean up the mess, she told them to mind their own business.
Someone took a picture of her (and the poop) and posted them on a popular Korean blog. Other bloggers latched on to it and blogged about the incident. Within a few days tens of millions of people knew about it around the world. She came to be known as gae-ttong-nyue (dog-***- girl – in polite society she is referred to as the dog-poop-girl).
“It servers her right,” you may argue. “A person who does not clean up behind her dog should be exposed.” This reasoning may be true – but raises concerns about the way in which our privacy could so easily be invaded by the internet.
The moral of the story: don’t leave any mess behind – you may be world news within minutes.
