28 Comments

Police said Monday they have arrested an elementary school teacher from Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture, for public indecency in the parking lot of a family restaurant in Saga on Sunday. According to a report on Fuji TV, police said that Masaya Tanaka, 34, stood in the parking lot and exposed his genitals to several female diners inside.

Police said that Tanaka approached the glass of the restaurant windows while wearing a T-shirt and shorts and exposed himself to the women. Fuji TV quoted witnesses as saying that although the incident occurred at about 1 a.m., the parking lot was illuminated and Tanaka's actions were easily visible from within the restaurant.

Tanaka was quoted by police as saying, “Sure I did it. I really ruined their day.”

“Sure I did it. I really ruined their day.”

No dipstick, you ruined your own life, no one elses. Although having said that, youll probably be rehired next year.

Another article involving a teacher, what is it with teachers recently, are they all drop kicks or just some of them?

Maybe the teachers need to be taught some moral and social rules and standards.

Or maybe teachers need to be selected from a higher level of society instead of selecting the first one to apply for the job.

Wonder if the restaurants business went up after this?

There are lots of people out there whose primary motive does seem to be causing trouble and physical and psychological pain to others.

But they usually hide it like their life depended on it. Its interesting that this guy just blurted out that that was his motive. Usually this motive gets overlooked and the man is just branded a sexual deviant, or other, when in fact, so many branded sexual deviants and whatnot are just like this guy; just looking for anything to shock and annoy others. It did not need be his genitals. Could have been a dead cat. People like this are just opportunists, and some of them have no limits.

Its surprising how many of them I find while playing onlline games. They never play the game. They don't try to win or help their team. They just look for ways to ruin it for all. Watch out for them. They are out there.

From what I know of Saga women, it'd take a lot more than that to ruin their day. They probably had a good laugh.

You have NO idea how many times some idiot would "show up" and start killing everybody just for the heck of it when I was playing "HALO" Online during my third pregnancy... LOL

I wonder if he was trying to get the restauranteur to add "Vienna Sausage" to the menu?

Might have ruined their meal, for sure, but really you only ruined your own career and probably your life... and for what? This guy is a class act. Teachers are starting to outnumber the police in terms of weird sexual crimes.

IMHO, that's the best way to deal with these guys. Everyone point and laugh out loud at it.

" Sure I did it. I really ruined their day."..................................somehow ( I know it's wrong but............) I found this very funny. I think he's trying to outdo Borat ( the movie )

Absolutely! When it happened to me I did exactly that and the guy just sort of pulled his pants up and ran off. I actually felt quite guilty - he looked kind of upset! I dont know who this guy thinks he is with this "I sure ruined their day" rubbish.

Would have been more like small cocktail sausages one thinks.

What? No cell phone video?

It beats me why anyone would do this.

I also wonder how long it took for the police to get there.

How long was he prancing up and down, exhibiting his one eyed trouser snake?

Why feel guilty? You should have added to his shame with a loud 小さいですね!

They where probably loud, obnoxious and ruined his dinner. He only expressed his view about it.

I am interested in finding out what the perpetrator actually said in Japanese. I can't readily think of the Japanese equivalent of "I really ruined their day."

I had exactly the same thought.

I can't think of a Japanese equivalent of "I really ruined their day" either.

Perhaps it wasn't a literal translation.
