Tip 48: Not all Japanese people are friendly

Me: Knocks on neighbor's door

Neighbor: opens door after about 2 minutes, peers only his head out

Me: Uh, hi. I'm your new neighbor.. I just moved in upstairs

Neighbor: ....

Me: So anyway, I just thought I'd come by and introduce myself

Neighbor: Oh.

Me: Yeah, so my name is Grant.

Neighbor: Puts on fake smiley face. Oh, nice to meet you!

Me: Nice to meet you too

Neighbor: Shuts door

I suppose I won't be asking for a cup of sugar any time soon.
