But more expensive to properly repair.

Every time one of these "Japan so weird" stories pops up, all I can think is "You made Donald Trump president and your country has more guns than people. STFU."

Know what's weird about American schools? All the shootings.

Yeah. If your country is weird, you can never comment on another ever again. That makes sense if you don't think about it.

Breaking and entering is nothing, you should see what they make their E class go through.

I mean Japan found a way to weaponize politeness, and more recently, cuteness. That's pretty crazy. Their politeness is so earnest that I can never tell what is true and what is the most deadpan sarcasm ever, being raised on a steady diet of Bart Simpson and Daria.

In the US we only occasionally flirt with politeness in ways must seem like fumbling children to them, like "bless your heart, dearie." They have so much to teach us, but we're so damn ADHD.

Either you went to Japan and didn't speak the language, or you built your image of the Japanese from TV and movies.

No, there is some dry as fark sarcasm in this country.  But you normally don't encounter it until you're good friends with the person and they know you'll accept their taste in dry comedy.  But, in public, with strangers?  Never.  Just the generic public level of politeness that's usually given to everyone.  People warm up when you get to know them, which is fairly normal no matter where you live.

//met some really awesome, sarcastic people too

Why couldn't they just leave the door unlocked?

Or maybe before test day the students should have taken everything home because they no longer need the cram school.
