Posted in: Employees reveal absurd company regulations See in context

I work 9 and a half hours non-stop with no breaks and an extra unpaid hour meeting once a week and one unpaid two hour meeting once a month as well as the company falsely reporting 8 hour work days and claiming we get the one hour break. It's just how black companies operate in Japan.

I guess being 2018 people will complain about anything. I would think that the fact their child is dead would be the source of emotional distress. Would they be upset if the bandages were soaked in body fluids?

Posted in: Kindergarten employee arrested for abusing 5-year-old boy See in context

To many weak teachers here in Japan try to ignore these bad kids and it just causes other kids to act the same. Dragging an unruly kid out of the class by the arm is far from abuse. I've seen these types of kids bullying the smaller good kids and ruining the whole class just to get attention. Kudos to Ms. Yamanaka and shame on the snitch teacher.

If people were so easily compensated there would probably be a rise in false reports in hopes of getting free money.

Hope you don't mind me asking, were they just tinder hookups?

@goldorakd I don'tuse Tinder. Seems to be more women in their late 20s early 30s desperate to get married on there in my area. As that age group of single women seem to fall in that category in Japan. There are some members only clubs (not drink dance type) that cater to people looking for a date. (Not a paid date) Although Japanese is needed as they don't let most foreigners in.

Theres not much they can do to stop this. There are far more sites open that offer the same service for free. Try as they might there are always ways around them trying to block websites or find who creates them.

Posted in: Trump's high-risk doctrine? Swing for the bleacher seats See in context

Trump will be the first president to accept a sit-down with North Korea. While former presidents cowered away from the idea or sent someone else as a diplomat. Glad to see someone making moves others were afraid to.

Posted in: Which cities in Japan are good & bad to live in? See in context

Fukuoka in my opinion is the best place to live. Big city without all the overcrowding and crazy foreigners. Nice beaches without the threat of tsunamis. Beautiful weather and women.

If she is a housewife then I'd ask why not.

If she works then I'd offer to pick up dinner.

Posted in: Women in Japan reveal their worst dating experiences See in context

Ive had quite a bit of first dates at love hotels. Most of which was decided by the woman. Most of them continued to the have multiple dates all going straight to the hotel. Many will even pay as some of them aren't spending their own money. It just depends on the person you are with. Some people can be enjoyable no mater what you do or where you go.

Posted in: Civil servant spends 20 minute hitting on schoolgirl; gets arrested instead of a date See in context

The man didn't stalk the girl. He seen her twice. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. There's nothing wrong with flirting with a woman or a man. This case has nothing in common with the Lindsay Hawker case. Which is completely of topic. There isn't a single mention of her saying no to anything. One can add their own content to the story all they want in an attempt to make their points valid. Let's stick to what is in the article and not add in our own version.

Maybe they will get married later down the road and have a funny story to tell their kids. These articles paint a sad picture for Japanese men in the struggles of dating Japanese women.

Posted in: Imported dolphins See in context

Its not illegal in Japan like browny said. As long as people will pay to see dolphins and other animals do tricks and flips they will be bought and sold. Just because something is illegal in your country doesn't make it illegal in Japan. It is a way some people put food on the table for their families. Like it or not it's part of Japanese culture.

Hitting on her twice does make it stalking. You can't assume he would ask her again and again. If he had a record of stalking maybe. It's probably just some young guy freash out of Uni seen a cute girl and tried to see if she was interested in him. I'm not saying his approach was spot on but he's far from stalking. I see the same people on my daily transit, even a group of high school girls who always say random obscene things in Japanese to each other about me. I wouldn't consider that stalking or harassment.

Why do people keep bringing up stalking?

He seen her twice. Most likely they cross paths on their daily commute. That is not stalking.

Also he wasn't charged with sexual harassment. He was charged with obscene conduct in violation of the Prefectural Anti-Nuisance Ordinance.

Posted in: Civil servant spends 20 minute hitting on schoolgirl; gets arrested instead of a date See in context

Regardless of what you feel is right or wrong striking a person in Japan when you're a foreigner is a quick way to land yourself in trouble. I don't make the laws but I do know you would stand little chance in court. Your best bet is to run or shout for help, as the police tend to think of hitting someone should be a last resort if there is an opportunity to just run away.

That YouTube video is a very little use to most women as they would just watch it but not actually practice it and form the muscle memory to make any use of it. Most people with no experience will forget it right away and just act on the fight or flight.

Te best thing women can do is just avoid situations that put them at risk such as walking alone, walking down dark roads, ECT.

High school girls flirt with me all the time on my way to and from work.

He must have been quite annoying for her to call the police.

As for Bertie's story of the NY girl, that guy could have filed assault charges against her and won. The court system would favor him in this case. As yabaru pointed out just touching her on the shoulder wouldn't be assault. But her response by hitting him would be.

Even if you don't like the way the law works doesn't mean anything as it's the law and it doesn't matter what your countries laws are. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Posted in: Trump-Kim summit in Singapore presents logistical challenges for North Korea See in context

Trump isn't the first president to get an invite, but he is the first to accept it. Previous Presidents were to scared to actually go themselves and sent someone else to try and make deals. Which offended the North Korean ruler. So Trump is the first to accept the invitation as the others were cowards.

You can't force someone to drink alcohol. Telling them to drink isn't forcing them. Joining two men by yourself in a room to drink isn't the greatest of ideas.

Two more examples of one of Japan's biggest problems. The stress of being forced to conform to Japanese ideals of how people are supposed to be and act. Why were two students left alone on the 7th floor of the school? Does the school not have staff to supervise children on school grounds?
