office lady ejection seat

I felt a twinge of sadness when I happened upon this scene yesterday. The story it told was obvious. An OL, having had enough of photocopying endless documents and making numerous cups of tea and coffee, decided to go and end it all by enrolling in the Special Defense Force, signing up as a pilot and, on her first flying lesson, reaching for the greasy lever marked 'ejection seat'.

What a tragic waste of human life. And on Monday morning the salarymen in her office will go without drinks.


The seat. The shoes. And a vapourised OL.


The immaculate shoes of an OL, even after falling 10,000 feet.

Hi Englishman in Osaka

My wife, daughter and I are popping over from Taiwan for 5 days.

Where is the best place to get food (not too expensive - ok cheap!) in Osaka? Something local would be good.
