Today, I'm on vacation in Japan with my brother. When he said he could speak Japanese, I guess what he really meant that he's a dumbass weeaboo who only knows the words "kawaii", "baka", "sugoi" and a few others. He ended up offending two locals so much that they beat the shit out of us. FML
I agree, your life sucks 27 965
You deserved it 3 363

Same thing different taste


Next FML: I said hi how are you in Japanese to some people in Japan today and they beat the crap out of me. FML. Did he know what the words meant..?

Looks like the brother had his priorities straight. Learn the insults before the greetings.

I don't think people would beat the shit out of you if you told them hi how are you. Lol read carefully

No, I think what's meant here, 65, is that the brother may have thought that "Banks sugoi kawaii" meant "Hi, how are you?" and so was confused as to why they were angry.

I think you guys are missing the sarcasm. They were saying that from the brothers perspective, he doesn't even realize what he said was wrong. He thought he was saying "hi, how are you."

Um I did read it carefully, I'm saying maybe he didn't know what he was saying..

I think OP already said something along those lines

if he watched a lot of anime he'd probably know other phrases or how to say hello at the very least lol

My thoughts exactly! Lol he hasn't watched enough anime!

Sadly, being a fan doesn't mean they pay attention to the language or the culture. I have 2 friends that claim to be huge anime fans but just only just the anime. They know nothing of the language or culture. Just that to a disturbing point really like Japan's cartoons and video games and it's become a way of live for both.

The opposite happens very often aswell. I for instance really like the language so I started learning it. Whenever people find tgat out they're like "oh you must watch alot of anime!" And I really dont. I've gotten into naruto and that's basically it.

I love Naruto! Along with other shows but I had started learning Japanese first and actually for me watching it in Japanese has helped me learn... Or atleast I'd like to think so.

Half-heartedly learning Japanese and using Japanese phrases in regular sentences really serves to show just how retarded they are.

I watch very few animes, and I'm trying to learn Japanese. I think it's hard.

Should've tried "Domo arragato, mr. Roboto!"

A) Arigato B) I like that movie, but that can be very annoying.

You should have joined in with them and beat him up aswell!

Glad I'm not the only one who thought of that

you should just leave his ass somewhere and take his phone and cash... let him sweat for a minute

A phrasebook and knowledge of sentence structure, two things you really need to have for vacations in non-english speaking countries.

Or a phone and google translate

Either could be acceptable. I've never seemed to go wrong with GT.

That would require a phone and data that both work in that country

You can use WiFi for the translate without taking your phone off airplane mode. That way you can use it to translate with out getting huge bills for messages and calls.

Seriously? in almost every country English will help a lot. Maybe not possible to have a convo about nuclear physics though
