Is this charades?

3 Mar

Pointing, acting things out….. yes this is a life of charades.

This is what I did when I went to the post office today. I just wanted to buy stamps for my post cards. Easy right?! WRONG!

You would think that making a small square and pointing to the corner of the letter would get you some where… WRONG AGAIN!

The lady working, tilted her head like a confused dog many times.

After 10 minutes of playing this “game” I ended up only with stamps on the letters that I brought to the post office.

Fail.

I need to learn Japanese ASAP!

End of story.
