In London too?

Maybe I have been in Japan too long. Maybe I have forgotten how irritating thoughtless people anywhere can be to one another; how rude and inconsiderate. It's not only Japan, although I suppose that Japan is the only place about where any possibility of less than perfectly polite, considerate citizens is denied by most of the residents and a huge number of foreigners who have a "Japan is uniquely unique" fetish. Anna, in London noticed similar irritants about folks in that city too in a few posts on her blog Does that mean that we can all be irritated by the actions of strangers in big crowded places? Could it be that Japan is not so uniquely unique after all? Blasphemy!
