About This Chapter
The narrator laments that the slaves are being used as props in a drama. He says that they are useless in the house and that they should understand that he is not their master. He adds that thanks to them, his mother looks very happy. The cashier asks if she can run the errands from behind. The narrator says that she has to buy the ingredients for the meal. She says that if there is nothing needed, the customers will leave. She worries about the photos, but the waitress is like a model so she still worries. If she has already decided, she says, then she will break through. She tells the waitress that she would choose men over women if she were smart. She adds that it is true that you would better choose men than women like her. She lists the things she would do if she had the chance to change her social position. Walking hand-in-hand with a friend, eating tetaokbokki, going to a karaoke room, going shopping with friends, and going to the grocery store with friends are just some of the things that she could do. She would die after one year if she did not change her ways. She concludes that she is not a man and that her destiny is becoming part of arranged marriage.
