    I cackled with the mental image of some polite Japanese listener being confused as heck when you said "I'd rather slam my fingers against the door", but was too polite to call you insane.

    Not just in japan but in general, but British humour doesn’t work at all. It takes people about about 3 or 4 months to realise I’m being sarcastic. All non Brits take everything literally and think I’m weird.

    I know this will just get buried, but in the off chance you see it, I really want you to know that I really love your insight on Japanese culture. My father's side of the family is all from there, but the only person I know that has any insight into the culture is my grandmother, who refuses to take the there because, "I won't come back". Thank you for giving me a well informed insight into the culture that I have missed out on. Hopefully one day I will make it over there, and be able to use all the weird idiosyncrasies that my grandmother has made me grow accustomed to. Love your channel, keep the videos coming.
    Side note: If you have any tips on getting accepted into the JET program, I'd love to hear them. My japanese is terrible at best, but if I was a better grandson and called my grandmother more often, I reckon I could remedy this fairly quickly.

    Can anyone answer, if people expect everything to just work how does it fit in to the concept of "Shō ga nai"? Is that reserved only for events in your life rather than little things?

    On my trip to Japan, before I appreciated the benefits of a prepaid chip card, I was trying to use the Tokyo transit system by buying 1-use tickets. On one occasion, my ticket indeed got stuck in the machine. It was my fault -- I hadn't realized we were transitioning between two different systems and my ticket was only good on one of them -- but the stationmaster came out, opened the gate, retrieved my ticket, and exchanged it for a new one of the same value on the correct system.
    Amazing service, perfectly routine, that I wouldn't expect in the US any more than you might in the UK.
