A foreign resident living in Tokyo disposed of his three-year-old futon yesterday at the local convenience store before sneaking off into the dead of the night.
“Damn, that’s a real weight off my shoulders,” said Jon Lee.
Lee exhausted all other available options before getting rid of the futon at the local convenience store, including attempting to hacksaw his way into the garbage cage down the street.
“I even tried cutting it up into little pieces to fit it in the normal rubbish, but that was just eating into my life where I was actually trying to use that time to live.”
Lee says he placed a large garbage collection sticker on the futon, which his girlfriend told him he needed to purchase before throwing it away.
“There was no way I was gonna dump it at the normal trash collection spot – those stay-at-home housewives are all over that shit.”
“I saw one obasan looking out from her apartment window one night with a pair of binoculars, infrared goggles, and a Nikon 7500 DSLR camera pointed straight at the waste disposal area.”
Lee says he managed to get rid of around 17 pet bottles at the konbini before disposing of the futon.
