Won't Miss #21 - roaches
Perhaps I was lucky in my pre-Japan life, but I never lived with roaches in the U.S. In Tokyo, no matter what I do, I see a roach or two each summer and they always show up at the worst time. For instance, one slowly crawled across my wall during a private English lesson. Others crawl across the kitchen wall at 3:00 am so that seeing one and hunting it down and killing it creates a huge sleep-stopping adrenaline rush.
I won't miss dealing with these scurrying unwanted guests.
