Gosh what a jerk! Sorry you had this happen. I am curious how he did it,
too, but I do have a suggestion. The reflectors in Japan are very nice.
I always get treated politely and the people are always eager to try to
talk, despite the language difference. A refreshing change from
exhibitionists and starers. There are many others, too. I stay away from
the bad ones. Keep trying.
