Here we see Thomas P. Jameson III doing a Laoshu on Japanese.

In the style of the late great Moses McCormick, the Texan cowboy reviews a stack of Japanese learning
Moses died while still young but he was a beloved member of the expat community who helped many of us out. He helped me personally on multiple occasions. Laoshu also supported my channel giving me mentions from time to time in his own videos. Moses will be greatly missed. Of course, he was still going strong at the time I made the above.

This went up a couple of weeks back and a number of my viewers said they would like the version without being speeded up and having music played over it. They wanted the full reality of a bloka having a chat with his hairdresser as the beard came off and the hair got cut.
This is something you’d never see on TV. They talk about “”reality”” TV, but it’s all stage managed and nothing to do with real reality. Here we have a spur of the moment decision and agreement to film the cut, and it was pretty much the same as it usually is without the cam. I assume that’s why people voted on the other film to get the full unedited version, and here it is!

So, some people think I should not use my leverage to complain about bad service, that I am spoiled as so many people do not get any pizza at all, substandard service or not.
To this I say, when I am earning the money I have, I take care to make the people paying happy. So is it that:
a) when I am paying out the money, I also have the right to expect the same attitude shown to me, or
b) I am stupid to try to give value when obviously I cannot expect to get value, I shouldn’t bother bothering when I am doing the service, or
c) I should accept that my role in life is to to my best for others while others just take advantage of me.
In fact, I just renewed my Crowdsignal today so let’s do a poll.
Many thanks if you added your voice to that.
Now here’s what I originally wrote with this clip.
“This is what customers of Pizza Hut can expect in Poland. Orders not fulfilled properly, and complaints answered with promises that are not kept.
Would they get away with this in America? It doesn’t cost any less in Poland, so why don’t they think we deserve an equivalent service for takeouts?

I always go to this hairdresser, Pani Ula from Hest in Warsaw. Although she’s been in a few other ones since then and now is in Akademia Perfect Hair which I won’t advertise too much or there won’t be any slots left for me – it’s hard enough to get me hair done already! She does the best job and is such a nice person too – as you can see from her agreeing to this film, and the funny way she sut off my beard in stages. I’ve been having my haircut by hair for years. Even before I moved away from Warsaw in 2000 for a while I’d had my haircut by her. I never fail to go to sleep while she’s cutting and I did it again towards the end of this one, too.
