I did something wrong today

I did something wrong today, which proves how much faith Japanese people put in each other, as well as their passive aggressive nature.

I was searching for a car park for the longest time, not realizing there was a festival on until I had got into town. So, naturally, I park the car in the convenience store car park.

I shouldn’t have done that, I probably could have parked in another place just a little further away, but the other place right next to where I had to be was full, so I saw no choice.

Anyway, three hours later I get back to my car and it’s the funniest thing. There’s a cone touching the driver’s door, and two cones touching the front bumper. That’s it. That’s about all they can do I guess.

I shouldn’t have parked there. But this ‘punishment’ frankly, was a bit ridiculous. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t have much authority, and you want to use the authority that you do have. Was quite funny to be honest, but I don’t think I’ll do it again.

ENJOYED THIS? HAVE MORE.
