It seems all these incidents happened in Tokyo. What's up with that? Also, I wonder how many alcohol-related deaths there have been during the same period. One reported death is a tragedy. Dozens,scores,hundreds?-reported deaths, bad for business.

I become annoyed when convenience store clerks insist on putting a piece of tape on my pack of gum, even when I ask them not to. Are they worried that they'll suddenly forget that I've paid as I walk from the register to the door? Also, why do I have to touch the register's screen every time I buy my Asahi? I'm a lot younger than I look; I'm almost 60. And I only buy non-alcohol beer.
