A pro bono English lesson was carried out yesterday in transit between Shinagawa and Ueno stations.
“Excuse me, where are you from?” asked 45-year-old local accountant Kaiwamu Ryo.
The impromptu training session ended after fifteen minutes without any form of payment exchanging hands.
Ryo also failed to offer any assistance towards Mark Spitzer’s tax return documentation for the current fiscal year.
“Next time I’ll just pretend I can only speak Russian,” says Spitzer, knowing full well that will never happen.
This was the second time this month Spitzer has been forced to work on the way home from work.
