Won't Miss #27 - being stared at

I realize that Japanese people can't help but look at people who are appreciably different from themselves, and I don't begrudge them a quick glance. However, a lot of people will just stare long and hard at me as if they are viewing me from behind a one-way mirror where I can't see them, but they can see me. Even staring right back at them won't dissuade them from their gawking.

I definitely won't miss being treated like a dumb animal in a zoo exhibit.

  1. In my personal experience, high school girls are the worst about this. Children, drunks, the blatantly mentally empared and otherwise interesting people get a free pass, but those damned high school kids! Agh! Get off my lawn!
