Hello everyone! It is KON.
There was a such funny thing happened in a supermarket yesterday.
It is a conversation between three co‐workers in front of a famous sushi shop.
So many people in front of the shop and sure I am in line, too. We stay very closed and so I can easily hear the conversation around. (By the way, I was not pretend to listen what others talking about. lol)
Here is the conversations. (male leader (40s), female staff (30s), young staff (male 20s). )
◆ male leader
“Hey, guys! I came down to the cleaning shop earlier, and I always playing the「rock-paper-scissors」with a clerk at that shop. And guess what! we lasted 7 times and have no result, after that we got a little break and played again, this time we latest for 5 times and still have no result T-T, in the 6 times finally I lost. ”
◆ female staff
“So!? What is the point?”
(That male leader seemed a bit sad.)
◆ male leader
“What~ is this conversation so boring? ”
◆ young staff
That’s the whole story, and nobody laughed except that man.
But there is something left in mind. For me, if I was there and heard such a story,maybe I would say
” seriously?!” “7 times??” “you are totally unlucky ” “what if you win? will you get something!?”
That man just needs a ” straight man ” .
Since I grew up in China and now working in Japan, I can speak three languages (Chinese, Japanese and English). Communication between people is more complicated than we think. Is it a sensibility? Even if you listen to the same thing or talk about the same topic, people’s reaction is always quite different.
But as we are minded people and an adult! I really think that it is very important to have a good conversations with others.
Of course! In one store we can talk freely because we can speak not only Chinese but also Japanese and English.
I am looking forward to seeing you all !
BTW, this is my dinner at Setsubun tonight.
(The Japanese rule is eat up the whole sushi without saying a word! Let’ have a try!)
