Apologies: The Japanese Tradition
I've lived in Japan since 1987, and it never ceases to amaze me about the way there's constant apology going on for fairly trivial stuff, but none when it's really needed. Anyway, I'm probably guilty of apologizing too much myself, having been here in Japan so long. This video Apologies: The Japanese Tradition, provenance unknown, is a fairly hysterical look at apology here, and is spot on. Check out the guy's facial expressions - quite humorous in places.
