Never had the pleasure of having anything more consequential than my umbrella stolen in Japan — until last week.
It was then that my bicycle was stolen.
Naturally, I thought of reporting this to the police, but then remembered something about my nearest koban: they are a bunch of assholes. Yes, assholes.
I’ve been stopped twice by them for doing nothing more than riding my (now swiped) bicycle. Once, obviously followed until a pair of them finally mustered up the courage to ask me for my documentation. Angered, at being accosted for what appeared to me to be no other reason than because of my appearance, I gave them an earful. Big time yelling/shaming ensued. In hindsight it probably would have been more effective to be rational and explain why I was angry, I know. I let the anger get the best of me.
Anyhow, this is why I now cannot go to the police box to report my stolen bike.
That sting? It’s pride fucking with me.
