I’ve recently been to Japan on holiday and thought I’d share a few thoughts on a bit of a funny story that happened.
Eventually we had to backtrack – the car was fishtailing a bit here and there he wasn’t looking too jolly. Extremely luckily, the 7 Eleven half way back to the railway station had an ATM and I could get some cash out.
Arriving in a country, I’d have some cash, but not when leaving – we purposely spent the last of our money, inadvertently creating the situation that caused us so much difficulty.
Its funny, but even in what must be one of the most high tech countries in the world, the technology and reliance on it didn’t help me much. It was a bit stressful when you’ve just had enough for one day. He put the meter back on, back to the hotel and I gave him a tip – something not regularly done in Japan. He’s thought I’d overpaid and offered it back, which goes back to my thought at the top of this blog about respect for other people.
