Video of customer service in Japan… wait for it…

I’ve been to Japan. I didn’t love it.

Fascinating trip. But can’t say I liked the country. The food wasn’t terribly to my liking (even though I love sushi in the states, raw shrimp and raw squid is an entirely different story). The bigger issue for me was the level of regimentation in the culture. It disturbed me at a rather basic level.

Having said that, damn if Japan isn’t a country that (sometimes) works.

A few days ago I posted a video about Japanese movers who certainly do a nicer job than any American movers I’ve ever used.

They can’t figure it out, and push the “assistance” button. The video shows what happens next…
