Posted in: 1 dead, 10 injured after ex-Mazda temp hits 11 plant workers with car See in context

Laws are changing in Japan... in the near future, companies won't be able to hold on to temp workers for too long without hiring them as permanent employees (sorry, not sure of the exact length of time).

That'll probably make things worse, since companies will just fire workers after 3 years instead of hiring them permanently...

Easy solution. Get the station staff or cops to block entry through the ticket gates to anyone who is too hammered to walk straight. Allowing extremely drunk people to walk into your train station is asking for trouble and lacks responsibility for safety regulations. Train stations are not public places, they are privately owned.

They should install breathalyzers next to the Pasmo/Suica pads.

Where are these gaijin apartments that are supposedly cheaper and larger than the Japanese ones? All the gaijin apartments I've seen were more expensive than the Japanese ones of equal size in the same neighborhoods. That's how they make up for the lack of move-in fees- by charging higher rent.

Their excuse - "I was expecting an email from a client". Sod that - I was expecting some beer at a nomihodai, but you put the mockers on that, didn't you? Go home and feed your cats.

Had that experience before with a catlady. I wonder if it's the cats that make them lag behind everyone else.

First it says she was 47, then 46. Not only did he kill her, but he also made her one year younger?

Maybe he was drunk and wanted to sober up before going to the koban? If your choices are: a)sticking around the crimescene when you're pissdrunk b)showing up sober the next day and admitting to the hit-and-run and apologizing/bowing many will go with (b)

At least she's responsible enough to make him smoke in their own home >instead of outside in public. And that's better because...? And I don't have to inhale his second-hand smoke!

There is just way too much suicide here. It is the most selfish thing a person could do.

I think murder/rape is more selfish.

The second car should have stopped since he was probably already dead from the first car.
