>The short story is that it's a bit irritating when people automatically talk right past you if you are with Japanese companions that seem to be there for you as translators.
wurrd - easy ways to deal with peeps like that but annoying nonetheless
Full Beamers - I ride my bike frequently at night often late along a back road people frequently use as a shortcut. So many drivers fail to dip their lights when approaching me, they all drive along on full beam thinking its ok because there are no cars coming in the opposite direction.
Cars, cyclists it doesnt matter, we are equally blinded by your damn headlights!
Dip your f*%$#ing lights!!!!!!
I usually hold my hands over my eyes until they dip, sometimes they do, sometimes they dont - its the oblivousness and lack of intuition of many drivers - the Mr Wheeler mentality (screw all other road users when I am behind the wheel), that irritates me no end.
I want to load my mama-chari basket with rotten eggs and hurl them at full beamers.
how about get one of those bright-arse torches and carry it in your basket, then whip it out and beam them back till they dip.
how about this one, 10 million candle power, 1 hours worth of battery life.
Perhaps I should shoulder mount it ala the "Predator", burn some holes in their retinas.....
can't see the pic, but sounds good!
how about this image?
yep! That looks like the one you want!
People (ususally my wife) who interrupt me while I'm trying concentrate (Work, TV). Usually nothing more than a "what do you want for dinner?"
No matter how many times I explain about my limited brain function this continues.
And then the conversation goes like this:
Her: "What do you want for dinner?"
Me: "Anything is fine"
Her: "Don't say that"
Me: "OK then, How about Okonomiyaki?"
Her: "Okonomiyaki------" (Said in a dissaproving tone
Me: " Argh-------------------"

I hate what they do to their shoes!
I get a bit fed up with Japanese people insisting on telling me I look like some famous person (and most of the time I look not even remotely like them...
the word "fab"
and yeah Sanjo. "So which one do I actually look like?? Michael Owen, Samuel L. Jackson, or Bruce Willis? Come on people, let's come up with some consensus here!"
way to look like a fab celeb
When tv peeps say "Zoom... In" and pull the stupid faces and actions.
when the same person, upon arrival at work every day, points out to me in this 100 degree weather and 1000% humidity that i'm sweating.
like i couldn't feel it crawling down my back and beading under my hair.
oh, and then proceeds to tell me - every day - that japanese women don't sweat. which seems to be infuriatlingly true.
comparatively maybe, but my GF complains about how sweaty she gets when it's hot.
Soubriquette gets pretty sweaty when she's baking. Apart from the heat, it's heavy work shifting 20kg bags of flour. She tastes all salty like. Yum.
So tomorrow tell him he's wrong and to sod off.
C'mon runaway bunny, you're in Miyagi. It aint that hot here, and this summer has been a lot cooler than the last two.
