A foreigner using the same Japanese phrase for the past 19 years has been told this morning that they’ve been saying it wrong.

The offending foreigner was blissfully unaware it had verbalized the same Japanese language mistake around 750 times since late 1998.

“I’ve been using the same Japanese language pattern since free solo climber Alain Roberts was arrested for scaling the Shinjuku Center Building.”

“I felt like I had been punched in the back of the neck by a small but powerful creature,” the gaijin said.

Experts say the gaijin may start to suffer from mental scarring now it has realized it has been repeating the same Japanese error to hundreds of locals around Japan who were fully aware of the painfully obvious linguistic gaffe.

  1. I answered the phone for 6 months “Mushi mushi” (“insect insect”) before someone told me it’s “moshi moshi.” I thought it was so funny I just kept on saying it.
