Top 10 at-work pranks that get employees fired in Japan

Summer wave of "part-timer terror"

Part-time workers at convenience stores and fast-food outlets in Japan have been pulling stunts at work and posting photos of their pranks on twitter, Facebook and blogs. Embarrassed companies are issuing apologies and closing shops to clean up equipment and restock shelves tainted by the so called  "baito tero" – "part-timer terrorists."

Most of the prank pics have ended up on twitter which is being referred to by some as the "idiot detector".

The pictures of pranks that occurred in August prompted web searches for previous posts of employee’s at-work pranks. The earliest post – found so far – occurred in March.

The outbreak of stupid acts seems to have coincided with the high school vacations, when students are able to work more hours. Spring break is at the end of March, and the summer break began at the end of July and ended September 1.

Yellow Card G-men patrol puts penalty cards on dog poop

Patrol looks for dog droppings in Japan Three days a week Izumisano city in Osaka Prefecture sends “Yellow Card G-men” out in city-owned vehicles on missions to put yellow cards on dog droppings.

The “Dog feces government men” patrol will keep an eye on the yellow cards and if the droppings are still there 4 weeks later, they’ll clean up the mess.

Dog owners usually walk their pets along the same route. The city is hoping the dog owners will spot their pet’s previous poop, feel guilty about having left it there, and then finally clean it up, so the patrol won’t have to.

The Yellow Card G-men force is staffed by folks from the city’s Retired Persons Human Resource Center. The average age of the retirees is 75.

Citizens were not heeding the Izumisano ordinance requiring dog owners to clean up their pet’s droppings. City parks were becoming especially messy. Izumisano is also across Osaka Bay from Kansai International Airport and the town’s mayor doesn’t want dog droppings to be the first thing tourists see.

The Yellow Card G-men are also on the lookout for excrement-in-progress. A dog’s owner caught not cleaning up the dog’s droppings will be fined JPY 1000. The fine will be raised to JPY 5000 in October 2013.

The patrols hunt poop perpetrators in the morning and evening.

Neighboring cities are also cracking down on unscooped dog droppings. Izumisano has also received a call from officials from Eniwa city, a Sapporo suburb, which also has feces pickup problems.

Food truck kitchen cars get special places to park and sell

Food trucks in Japan kitchen cars Food trucks in Japan used to be found mostly at sporting events or other large events, and often the trucks were operated by brand name food manufacturers. Now updated versions of food trucks, dubbed "Neo Kitchen Cars", are offering take-away food at locations in cities.

Public open space cannot be used for kitchen cars in Japan, so kitchen cars often must rent space for their vehicles. One website specializes in matching kitchen cars with landlords who have a driveway or storefront parking available for rent.

Another company seeks to have kitchen cars use large open spaces owned by and adjacent to office building properties. Workstore Tokyo Do a provider of food vendors for events, matches building owners with the kitchen car operators and coordinates kitchen car schedules and locations. Tables are setup in the open space and the kitchen cars rent space there. The firm manages 33 locations in the Tokyo area. Almost 450 kitchen car operators are registered with the company and 200 of those operators have been assigned locations.

 

Kitchen car locations can be tracked online. Idouhanbai Navi is one website that lists locations of kitchen cars throughout Japan. The site also describes the foods offered by each mobile food neo stall.
