I’m asking for a friend.

Say this friend got an email from a Japanese cell phone company with the line, in Japanese, “If you do not recognize this e-mail, please let us know at the telephone number below.” Say he’d also been out to Xmas dinner and had a couple of drinks there and at home, and perhaps something else that’s legal in the State of Oregon. Should he try calling said Japanese cell phone company and informing them of the mistaken email?

And if this friend did, would you think poorly of him for using his pretty-fluent-but-not-up-on-cell-phone-business-lingo skills to converse with said cell phone company for fifteen minutes (much of it on hold)?

The friend needs a new hobby, right?

  1. Seems like a totally legit way for your friend to practice “cell-phone-business-lingo skills”.

    ??????????????? to you and yours.

  2. Sorry, that was supposed to read “akemashite omedetou gozaimasu” but I tried to cut and paste it in via wordpad and… I don’t have the Japanese language pack on my windows whatever it is? I dunno. Anyhow, Happy New Year!!
