Hora, keetay, keetay

Walkin to the fuckin bar

Isshou ni ikenaino?

Boku ka? Yeah, why not?

Hajimete, soreya!

Nanto to yuu no namae ka?

Suzuki Hiroshi to moshimasu.

Arigatou. Nihon ga nagai?

Nagasugiru.

Hi Brennan, Even though I don't understand the language the frustration comes through loud and clear. I say frustration rather than anger because you still use words of respect, a formal greeting and near the end a Thank you... Everyone knows konichi wa and arigatou. Of course the English helps understanding the rest. And "gaigin" stood out... foreigner A word I would not have recognized but I have read your blog and learned a little something. I smiled reading this, been there too long? The moment will pass... :rolleyes:
