Won't Miss #124 - assumed to fit the stereotype

Because I'm an American, most Japanese people believe they automatically know certain things about me:
  1. I eat beef and love hamburgers and potatoes.
  2. I have a gun.
  3. I grew up in a big house.
  4. I am not shy.
  5. I grew up around a lot of crime.
The truth is that only one of those things is true of me ("4"), and I won't miss people deciding that they know me without getting to know me based on a stereotype.
