In the corner of a small Japanese restaurant, a dozen dark suited businessmen gathered at a large table.Of course, losing is also losing, but at least this way you can say that you lost intentionally.
A Japanese couple walk through a park filled with cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
Smoke hovered over the dinner and beer disappeared as quickly as it was poured.
At first glance, it looked like a typical Friday night post-work scene played out all over Tokyo's taverns.
But then your eyes stop on a poster-sized sign propped up next to one of the middle-aged men. It reads:
Three Golden Rules of Love:
• Thank you (say it without hesitation)
• I am sorry (say it without fear)
• I love you (say it without embarrassment)
All the men at the table stood up. Equally spaced out and still wearing their stiff black suits, they chanted in unison, "I can't win! I won't win! I don't want to win!"
