Funny Signage

Seen on the JR Train on Mike's morning commute: "I was unaware of those piercing eyes looking at my backpack" (with picture showing large-backpack-wielding commuter banging onto fellow passenger with said backpack).

Translation into New York speech: "Hey you, with the big freaking backpack! Watch it buddy."

Hmmmm and I was thinking of an immersion class before traveling to Japan! yeah right. I don't think I could EVER get a handle on the cultural divide.
