I didn't notice Good or Bad signs and had never checked them. Thanks for telling me. Maybe people gave me thumbs down because of my bad English.

The thing that I don't want anyone to see when something happen to me is my diary. So I write it in English, almost illegible letters so that my husband would not find out what I feel about him.

Actually, my husband works at post office. Yes, the story of Mr. Mori is true. My hubby is a regular worker and his quota is 8000 post cards. No matter how we struggle to sell our relatives, friends, neighbors and my co-workers to ask to buy them, he can’t meet his quota. So he ended up buy some of them by himself to meet his quota. And not only Nengajyo, employees have to sell Kamomail(mid-summer greeting cards), various kinds of goods all year round or if he/she can’t do that they have to buy themselves. We just had 3rd box of mandarin oranges this month. If post office expects employees to sell or buy so many unwanted products, they should raise their salaries. Apparently, these cost to cover the quota is a huge burden for us. We have to send our son to a private college.
