Small Adventure 65

Some weeks ago, I was walking from Tenmonkan to the apartment. I got close to the building where the Nabeshima Yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant is located. Nabeshima is on the fourth floor, and there are fashion shops and offices on the other floors. There's a small open parking lot at street level at the left side of the building. A delivery truck had pulled up, and the driver parked on the street in front of the lot entrance before jumping out and running into the building. Some young guy (maybe college age) had his car in the lot, and when he and his friend were preparing to leave, they discovered their way blocked by the truck. After a few seconds, the driver got out of his car, swearing at the top of his lungs. He walked to the front of the truck and slammed his foot against the driver side headlight (he just bounced harmlessly backward, leaving the truck unscathed) then stomped in a rage into the building, stopping confused because he had no idea what floor the driver was on. I kept walking, so I have no idea if the kid tried confronting the delivery guy or not (if he really wanted to leave the lot, being nonconfrontational would have been the wiser option).

Japan. It's a safety country.
