hmm, he's a busy chap and quite right on many of his points. Japan really is the most stubborn place I've ever been to. Saying that I had to go to "Driving School" with the emphasis that it was a SCHOOL. This place is for punishing those of us who commit traffic violations., In my case it was speeding but then again I can piss faster than the speed limits in this country. They're so out of date. Anyway, we had to do a test of 50 questions. The problem is that my Kanji reading skills are pretty poor. So they gave me an EngRish version which was harder to understand than the Kanji test!
So I'm in a bit of a predicament here because if I fail the test I'll be banned from driving for 30 days and with my job that just wouldn't do. So I explain my situation to the police guy in charge at the time. Luckily for my he was understanding and took me away to a private room where he read out the questions for me. Totally against the rule yet this guy could sympathy with my situation and take it upon him self to sort out the issue. This is the sort of guy we need in the Japanese goverment instead of the usual no change pricks that we have now. It's just a shame Abe (I actually met him in the supermarket a few weeks back) backed down due to pressure from the old farts. While his policies weren't all good he was up for a change.
