only in japan...

So I'm interviewing a new student for his profile today. It turns out that he's been to New York, and he mentions that it was very dangerous. So I ask him if anything happened to him while he was there. He then proceeds to tell me that while he was trying to buy weed from some guy he pulled a gun on him to hold him up, so he ran away. ok... I then made a heroic effort to appear deeply concerned without looking in the slightest bit shocked or amused. I did almost crack up when he said "weed" however - he was a beginner level student. I guess it's amazing how quickly you can pick up slang on the street while travelling abroad.
