Response to Language

I admit that my Japanese is not great, and a lot of Japanese panic when a foreigner speaks to them, in English or Japanese, but sometimes you just have to smile, shrug your shoulders and walk away, saying thank you.

Hey man, based on that sentence and our chat today, it's so simple to understand both how long you've been in the country, and why you're "not like" the danchan.

If only more gaijin had that attitude...simply stated and oh-so very true. Some Japanese just sort of mentally "check out" when a gaijin talks to them, in whatever lingo. It's helpful if you can deal with it. kudos to ya...
