It does sound terrible. Nonetheless this cyber-lynching sounds pretty bad too.

I think foreign men in particular would not be good targets because of all the built up rage from bad marriages, micro-discrimination on a daily basis, miserable commutes and poor job prospects. It is like picking a pimple that is ready to blow anyways

Thanks for the chuckle of the day

I haven’t seen any mention of working fathers taking time off to share childcare duties. Why is it only working mothers who are singled out? Industry and government are so irresponsible.

zichi—Always appreciate your comments, and positivity. I have a similar Xmas. Enjoy

I'm happy that we are not forced as much to experience Christmas as when in my birth country Britain.

We have no children and our immediate Japanese family have passed. We don't buy each other gifts but we do write each a card and some poems of love and appreciations. Battling with prostate cancer and having a robot op in February. Still in good spirits. Should be good after that. So you won't be getting rid of me just yet.
