smithinjapan: sure, you are right, checked with post office they dont know anything about delivery ie they can not guarantee on time delivery, but what would you do? It is even more painful just to observe situation like it is without being able to help your friends

I was just thinking… I can send some food to my friends, but how can I send them water? And they need water first… all this makes me so sad…

Posted in: Ken Matsudaira's wife found dead in apparent suicide See in context

I am shocked… It is really strange- sometimes you look on all these famous, rich, successful people and you think they must be happiest people in the world. Apparently to be and to look like are two different things. Another thing- “ suicide” can be not really “ suicide” ...

did it twice, Helsinki - Osaka. First time flight wasn't good, but very cheap. Second time- very good flight and still for very good value. Good points- they are always on time, airport is friendly user, very good and positive experience.

Of course, when economy was good and country was in need of workers, nobody did care if they speak language, if they respect rules etc, but now when economic situation is bad, they are complaining about “ bad immigrants”. This is a good example how hypocrite politicians are.

Posted in: In Japan, the customer is not king See in context

Well, to cut long story short: imho- pay first the price, then request service. Otherwise it is ridiculous and naïve to ask for special treatment. And of course, in all western countries hamburgers are tailor made upon each customer’s demand)))

Posted in: What makes Japanese women say, 'I never want to see that jerk again!' See in context

Hmm, I am thinking right now…what is so bad in asking questions like “ do you have a boy friend? why did you beak up”. Of course, it depends on situation, but a guy might ask a girl to go out just for a drink and then he wants to check if this girl would be “available”. I don’t think there are not non appropriate questions / topics, there are non appropriate situations to ask / discuss certain things

Posted in: French strikes disrupt life, shut Eiffel Tower See in context

Oui, c’est la merde, sorry for my French. Strikes in France became already same as festivals in Brazil, all activities are stopping for a time being and nobody cares about anyone. Great. Not great if you live in France or you have to travel via France during these days. Very sad reality that it is not really about labour conditions but just one more opportunity to hang around with your friends/ camarades doing nothing

Klein2: I propose to call Mc Donald’s and other fast food chain off our discussion because it is simply not a food. It is a chain. I don’t want that it sounds arrogant but you get what you are looking for. If you go to fast food chain, it will remind any way fast food quality, in some places it can be “ better”, in some it can be worst, but idea is the same- no tailor made service. It will be different story when you go to the family owned restaurant where people are interested to get and to keep their customers; where there is personal communication etc. that’s why I propose to compare things which are comparable…

i adore them! Sophia Loren the one of the most talented, charming, beautiful and class actress ever. For Maurizio Pollini- I went to his concert given in Musikverein in Vienna and this was something unbelievable, an unique experience.

Posted in: In Japan, the customer is not king See in context

First of all- please stop referring to mc Donald as to a restaurant. Mc Donald is jut nothing, fast food chain. It is not a food by its definition. Regarding customer service- I would say it became much better. In good restaurant they always accept some “exceptions” from orders and ready to provide tailor made service. In Osaka in oysters’ bar/ restaurant they were ok when I asked them if I can have some dishes from menu and combine them as I wanted. Same goes for beauty shops and high class end boutiques. I was desperately looking for a one ring, and they brought it from Nagano to Tokyo, my size, exactly what I wanted. No, you can say whatever you want, but for me Japanese customer service is really the best ever.

Guys, it is so funny, thanks a lot)) it seems to be that most people here can win prize of “ best solicitor for crying kids” )))Honestly I have been lucky, have never had this problem. Oh non, just one, baby was crying but very short, then I supposed he has got his prosac/ sleeping tablets/ scotch etc…

Posted in: How do you feel when someone you are greeting wants to hug you or kiss you on the cheek? When is it appropriate and do you think the custom can be misinterpreted in some cultures, such as Japan, for e See in context

Well, if it is really stranger – then it is not appropriate. But in Europe it is normal greeting way between friends, family members and acquaintances. My Japanese friends who have lived abroad do same way when we are meeting.
