@ Fizzbit, that's another thing I get here, especially in the stations. People always seem to expect me to be the one to move out of their way. If the other party makes an effort, so will I. But, if there's plenty of room and they refuse to, while heading straight for me, I'll stop at the last moment and let them crash into my shoulder. In one extreme example, a large woman crashed into me even though I had stopped a few seconds before. Then she got mad at me.

I sometimes get long stares, usually from older people. And, of course the "Gaijin perimeter" on the train. Many people won't sit next to me even though I'm in business attire, and fresh out of the shower. Many times I've watched as people head directly for the open seat next to me, only to swerve suddenly away at the last moment when they see me.

"White Day was started in 1978 by Japan’s National Confectionery Industry Association (NCIA) as an “answer day” to Valentine’s Day" more like an excuse to sell more product.

Enough already about compensation and apology. It's been done, get over it. And what exactly is "full compensation" anyway?

I'm not advocating leaving him alone, but I've seen many cases in the states where the charges are dropped because the family needs the money.

Remember, arrested doesn't necessarily mean jailed. Taking away the family's source of income won't help the situation.

I could name a few...people (almost exclusively the olds) who use their phones in the priority seats...phone users who plow their way through crowded stations expecting others to get out of their way...bicycle riders who'd rather text than be careful of innocent bystanders...

A few years ago, when I told an ojisan I teach English, right away he asked me "Where do you work...NOVA? HAHAHAHA"
