You're not the only one there. At one of my jobs we don't have paid holidays and at the other we do but I got told taking them will result in having all my hours cut.

I just got a call from my opthamologist's office. They said that my contacts from May were there and asked when I would come in to pick them up. The only problem is that they never asked if I wanted contacts, nor did they tell me when they would arrive (both of which they always do) so I simply went and ordered them online.

Speaking of juuminzei... A giant FUCK YOU to the Osaka Tax office. After 3 weeks of getting the runaround from these asshats they just figured it was easier to call and threaten my company than give me any kind of support. And the kicker was my area manager got that call while I was in the middle of an interview for a management position. Pretty much shot that opportunity to hell, you stupid cunt sores. :FU: :FU: :FU: :FU:

Ok,I heard the biggest fucking idiotic,hypocritical double standard of all time yesterday.
The badminton tanking came up yesterday and all students were disgusted and agreed
that sending the offenders packing was the right thing to do.
But,according to the very dickhead who brought up the issue it is OK for Japan`s womens
soccer team to do it because it is a tactic.

the Japanese women's soccer coach ordered his team not to score in its last game


Am I the only thicky missing her reasoning?

Yeah I agree. Although I don't agree with some of that journo's points. Resting players for a meaningless match is not the same as trying to lose. Its called player management and its not even the same god damn sport. In AFL at the minute (to be fair there has been rumours of it for years so its not new) there is a row about tanking so the bottom teams get top draft picks. Its illegal and I think any team that does it should be sanctioned. Although there is talk about rule changes coming in to stop this from happening.

Once, JUST FUCKING ONCE I'd like to be able to go and see a doctor in this country and get what I need without having to listen to some stupid statement or bullshit question! :bird:

Yes, I'm an English teacher.
Yes, I work at Nova (past gripe).
No, I don't work at Nova.
Yes, apparently I must like (at least one) Japanese ladies, seeing as though I'm married to one.
No, my wife wasn't one of my students.
No, Schwarzenegger isn't Australian.
No! Schwarzenegger isn't Australian!
Yes, I'm fucking positive that Schwarzenegger's NOT AUSTRALIAN!!!
Yes, I've got a big nose (even by gaijin standards).
It's the first time you've ever seen such a big nose is it.... Congratulations on being able to check that off your bucket list.
Yes, I've got a few tattoos. Yes, they hurt a bit.
and so on and so on...... :bird: :bird: :bird:

I don't have a lot of patience at the best of times and what little I do have goes into exponential decline when I'm crook.

Just do your fucking job cunts :bird:

That was from a quack who was taking a biopsy for a possible skin cancer on my back about 6 years ago.

More dickhead Japanese overseas! I saw a good 10 or so Japanese ranging from 20s to 50s making a hell of a ruckus on the train or on the street in Bkk. A few times Thai people rolled their eyes and gave me the mutual WTF do they think they are doing look.

Still, I didnt bother confronting these people. What is the point? They will automatically go to the GAIJIN IS WRONGLY ACCUSING US OF BLAH BLAH.

Oh and for those that care: Im thinking of making a change in jobs by Jan 2013. It is just time to do something about this.

I was mildly surprised myself. You are one of the few inkless people in our circle.

Not a judgement, of course. The biggest difference between the tattooed and untattooed is that those of us with ink generally do not judge those without.

My mom of all people walked me in to a tattoo parlor when I was 18 and told me to get whatever I want and she'd pay for it. I spent a couple of hours browsing through the tattoos and was overwhelmed with the choices and the fact that that fleeting moment would last the rest of my life. I was just thinking about what kind of tattoo I'd like the other day. I might decide on one by the time I retire.

my tat choice was easy. just flung six coins and got an i ching hexagram.
turned out to be wind over the water, implying hidden depths. good enough for me.

thank christ it wasnt hexagram 4 which is "an arsehole consults the oracle for frivolous questions."

If you don't have any ink by now, might be best to skip it altogether. My two cents.

my flatmate in the early 90s had a barcode tat (before it became a cliche).
i asked him what he would get next.

he replied "only an arsehole has more than 1 tattoo"

The only circumstance under which I would get a tat would be for something that is extremely meaningful to me. Otherwise I am sure that I would regret my choice of tat(s) in no time at all. What I don't get is the people who get them in place that is visible and then don't want to talk about it. :huh: A few years back I was at a party and there was an American chick there with a rather large chest, which she was showing off. But above her ample bosom was a wing-like tat that went across her chest from one side to the other. When I asked her about it toward the end of the night, she got all pissy and said she was sick of talking about it. Well, gee. You've got this elaborate tat in full view in the middle of your chest where it can't be missed and you wonder why peeps ask about it. Perhaps you should cover it up???

"Look at me but dont ask about blah blah."

Great.

This morning there were hundreds of high school turds in Tennoji station standing around. Grouped in bunches, everyone else was supposed to dodge them while getting where they were going. I didnt. Fuck that! Fucking kids! Get outta the way.

I don't dodge any of these ignorant fucktards any more. Unless it's one of those so ancient their skin is translucent seniors, they can pay attention and not get in everyone's way.

As for the not talking about tats - I see both sides. I have an I-Ching hexagram on my forearm. Now, if you ask what my tat is, I'll be happy to tell you. On the other hand, if you ask me why I have a brick wall on my arm, I'm going to tell you to fuck off.

Normally I wouldn't ask cause I'm really not that interested -- don't get me wrong, ppl can cover their bodies with tats it really doesn't bother me and it is their body after all -- but it was just to make conversation; I think we had exhausted all the other small talk by then. Which doubly pissed me off when she got pissy at me cause the truth of the matter was I couldn't have cared less! lol

Yeah, no,, that girl was a twat. If you show it off, expect questions. Just don't try to be a smart-arse with your question(s). (I'm not implying you were - your question was perfectly reasonable.)

Got caught in a jellyfish swarm today I lasted about five minutes in it untill one of those bastards snuck down my boardies and got my dickhead. One of the guys close to me started screaming. Not as bad as the man-o-wars and box jellies in Hawaii but very annoying. Second time I've been stung in the genitals in Japan. Still fucking hurts.
