The Daily Commute

In Yachiyo Machi you can run into a number of disturbances getting to and from work.
* A stray dog runs out from nowhere (nobody has fenced in yards)
* There is only one clerk working at the 7-11
* You nearly hit 8 Jr High School students on their bicycles
* A stray box of cabbage has fallen off of a truck and everyone needs to swerve to miss it
* Being stuck behind someone who is waiting to turn right (this can take forever)
* Being stuck behind someone who is trying to e-mail via their cell phone and simultaneously drive
*Being stuck behind a tractor, small truck filled with vegetables or moped

Even though I bitch a lot... getting to and from work in Japan is much less of a hassle than driving the insane gridlock of the 55 to the 405 everyday. Or even worse, the parking lot freeways of Seattle's Traffic. Happy Driving Everyone!
Lots of Love,
