I heard this true story directly from the young man:
A Japanese college student was walking in Shujuku (popular movie and restaurant section of Tokyo) when a pretty girl standing by a bar invited him to come in and have a drink with her.
After having a drink and singing a karioki song, the student got handed a bill for $500 by a tough looking manager. "This can't be right," the student said.
The manager replied, "One hundred dollars for each drink. One hundred for singing a song. Another hundred for singing with the girl. And another hundred for putting your hand on the girl's shoulder while you sang. That's a total of $500."
"I only have $200," the student said.
"Then give me your watch until you come back with the money or you can't leave," the manager threatened.
The next day the student came back and redeemed his watch.
Lots of lessons in this story for us James Bond Lifestyle students. Such as always know the kind of place that you're going into and what you're getting into.
And it's better to carry $500 and not need it, than need $500 and not have it.
