An angry Japanese diplomat has thrown his Coca-cola PET bottle into the normal trashcan in Australia after learning Japan lost its $50 billion submarine contract bid to France.
The recycling bin with the circle hole specifically for plastic or glass bottles was right next to the normal waste bin at the time of the incident.
The diplomat admits the frustration may have got the better of him and the Australians didn’t deserve this kind of extreme retaliation.
“I’ve never felt angrier in my life – at least this way they could feel some of our pain,” said Ryota Kiyoshi.
“But clearly I took it too far and I regret what I did.”
