Friday Free Day - The Girl at the Super Market

Hey everybody.  It's the last day of the blogging week, and so I thought I'd go with a little something personal.

So, near where I live there is this small super marlet-esque place.  Working there is this adorable girl named 谷川(tanigawa).  I have been going to said store for almost 2 years now.  I have been seeing this girl, who seems to work there quite regularly, and have been trying to think of something to say to her, besides the obligatory "Yes I can use chopstick so please put them in the bag you dolt."

FYI, I'm not trollin'.

So, anyway, as always with these types of stories, she always seems to be eyeing me, or perhaps that's just my paranoia kicking in.  Whatever the case, I have been trying to think of some way to flirt and/or get closer than just 'That one white costumer'.

But, herein lies the real dilemma. 

There is a bit of a stigma about foreign guys here, which is that we just go around picking up girls like, as the phrase here goes, 'Yellow Cabs'. 

To be fair, I do know of several foreign guys who do that very thing.  I, however, am not one of them.  While I am certainly not shy by any means, I am the type who focuses on one at a time. 

But, thanks to good ol' Uncle Stereotype, this girl, and many others, tend to avoid foreign guys. 

Well, here's the rundown of the foreign guy-girl-getting ratio.

Black guys: Require no effort what so ever.  All you have to do is dress like the stereotypical ganster/hip-hop black guy and you're set.

Everyone else: You have to follow Dante through the 9 circles of Hell just to get a phone number.

The other thing is that, despite common reasoning stating otherwise (Good ol' Japanese style), the better you are at the Japanese language, the less likely you are to get a girl.  Why?  Because when the common sense fairy was distributing common sense all over the world, right when it got to Japan the phone rang... or something like that.

So, what do you all think I should do?  I don't want to lie and ask her something like 'Hey, what does this say?' (Because I can most likely read more Japanese than she can haha)  But, I also don't want to be creepy.  (probably too late though eh? haha)

Stay frosty everyone!  Have a good weekend.

  2. I don't see anything wrong with trying to ask her what things mean.

    I follow and support those who do likewise.

  11. I agree with Brotosterone and Isaac. Dress like a gangsta and alpha up. She will be yours.

    Supporting as always.

  12. Just talk to her man! You don't need to ask her out, just get to know her with small talk.

  14. If she's eyeing you then you can clearly proceed to step 2. Drug her and rape her!
