Fred Wesselton, a middle school teacher in Busan, had had enough. He recalls, "I was tired of the discrimination. I was tired of the whispering behind my back. My students were always saying 'You look so tired' or 'You smell like Daddy does after his business meetings.' Well, I just wanted to say to them. 'I'm not tired. I'm not sick. I'm not any different from any of you. I'm hungover. And I'm a human being, damnit, not an animal!" It was because of these sentiments that Mr. Wesselton created the first rights group for hungover persons, the NAAHP (National Association for the Advancement of Hungover People). The group is campaigning for equal rights under the law, protection from workplace discrimination, and "just one more hour of fucking sleep, please." For those interested in joining this group, they will be holding breakfast meeting in Itaewon, starting at 3PM.
