A big part of the problem seems to be the lack of caution on the part of franchisers when handing out new licences. New stores appear all the time, often within throwing distance of another store. No wonder they can't sustain the 24/7 model.

Instead of moving 5 days somewhere else, how about adding 5 days? It doesn't reduce overwork to just change the dates.

They had to hit a wall eventually. The only way forward would be Minority Report style anticipated buying. We've become too impatient as a society (myself included) so we expect instant gratification. Remember when you had to order stuff from a catalog and wait six weeks?! Puts a couple of days in perspective.

I have to agree with TheRat on the small percentage of lazy types. Sadly it is those lazy types that always get my annoyed attention. I never forget the really bad students or the really good ones. Which leaves 90% of the students (who do well or OK and cause no headaches) not leaving a strong impression.

Japanese people like door knobs.
Reality: Only girls in "certain" photo books. And they're probably not so keen in reality.
What does this even mean? Some kind of euphemism I'm not aware of? Someone enlighten me please!

They won through in the final qualifying tournament in Slovakia this month and will be the first Japanese women's hockey team to take part in a Winter Olympics.
The Japan Women's team participated in Nagano in 1998 with a record of 0-5 with 2 goals for and 45 goals against.

"I’d like our teachers to try their best. To support them, we plan to spare no expense.”
Hope that means a marked increase in salary and pay for upgrading teacher's education on a regular basis. Another Quantity over Quality solution... sigh.
