True Terror in Tokyo to Avoid

Copyright (c) 2006-2021

I got this story straight from the horse:

A Japanese college student boy was walking in Shujuku (popular movie and restaurant section of Tokyo) when a pretty girl standing by a bar invited him to come in and have a drink with her. After having a drink and singing a karioki song he got handed a bill for $500 by the tough guy manager.

"This can't be right", the boy said.

The manager replied, "One hundred dollars for each drink. One hundred for singing a song. Another hundred for singing with the girl. And another hundred for putting your hand on the girl's shoulder while you sang. That's a total of $500."

"I only have $200."

"Then give me your watch until you come back with the money or you can't leave".

The next day he came back and redeemed his watch.

There are lots of lessons in this story for us "James Bond Lifestyle" students. Such as always know the kind of place that you are going into and what you are getting into. And with who.

And it's better to carry $500 and not need it, than to need $500 and not have it. And to quote Johnny Rivers in "Secret Agent Man". "A pretty face can hid an evil mind."
