Guess the moral of the story is that if you want justice, don't look for it in the courts --

All teachers at my school are licensed to perform CPR and take a refresher course every two years. I would assume that all schools enforce CPR training. They would probably have been performing CPR while they waited for the AED to arrive--as one is taught to do in the mandatory training.

The fact is that an AED should have been brought along on an event like that--walking 13 km may not be particularly strenuous for some, but it is for others.

@Disillusioned, after 16 years here, I have never had that happen to me. I would be well on my way to a new job if if someone called me up to shout at me, while I was sick, after I had specifically told them that I would be away for x number of days. I would also be taking an extra day or two and would explain that my recovery was impaired by my inability to rest.

As for the blatantly discriminatory comments, I watched the mama-san (who is Japanese) of my favorite restaurant absolutely school someone by saying that the problem with salary men is that they work themselves to death, sacrifice all of their free time to be at work instead of enjoying themselves or spending time with their families and lack the wherewithal to imagine any other way. Not everyone here has that mindset, but there are enough people who think like that in positions of power to make everybody else miserable.

On a brighter note, the old guys will run the show for another 10 years or so, things are changing with the younger generation. As they get older and more jaded, you can expect more people to answer back and less people to uphold the antiquated norms. There will be fireworks.

Are you suggesting that the term "adsorb" is incorrect?

@Fizzbit The biggest holder of Japanese bonds is the national pension system. So they won't be defaulting on other countries, they will be throwing retirees under the bus.

This is a pure win for the not so young man in question. He got his room cleaned up, got his mother into government care and will get the apartment to himself - all without spending a single yen.
