H:
Once I was taking a Political Science class and the
subject was related to Japan. And I’m Japanese,
right? So an American classmate asked me, “Do you
want to study together before turning in the
paper?” So we said, “Let’s meet in the library at
when and when on Sunday,” because that was the only
day I was off.... I thought it was a good idea
because we both could learn from each other. I said,
“OK,” and we agreed to meet. Then on Sunday I went
to the library but she didn’t show up. I was like,
“Oh no,” “Why doesn’t she come?” I called her but
no one answered. I didn’t know if she was in the
library somewhere or forgot about it, or went
someplace else to play. I thought, “Well, it’ll be
OK if I study by myself and go home.” She didn’t
come after all. And the next time I saw her, she
was just like, “Oh, sorry I forgot.”
I:
Would you explain more in detail? Did you give up
and go home that day?
H:
I gave up.
I:
She didn’t call that day or the next day?
H: No.
I:
So when you happened to see her the next time
H:
Not like I happened to see her, we were classmates
so when I saw her in the next class she said, “I’m
sorry I forgot.”
I:
She started it?
H: No, I said, “I was there, just in case.” I said,
“You didn’t come.” Then she said, “Oh, I forgot.”
I: That’s
it?
H:
I thought, “It was you who asked me.”
I:
But you didn’t tell her that? Did you blame her?
H:
Well, I didn’t have much expectation. It wasn’t the
first time. I had heard from other people that they
agreed to meet Americans but often they didn’t show
up. So I thought, “Maybe this is the way it is.”
“She is that sort of person and it couldn’t be
helped”....
I:
How did you feel when you saw your classmate’s
reaction?
H:
“Oh well, she is American,” that’s what I felt. She
didn’t show up not because she had a big accident
or something. She made a lame excuse.
I:
Did you make another arrangement with her to study
together?
H:
No it doesn’t make sense to waste [my time].
I:
How was the relationship with her after that
incident?
H:
Well, we talk when we see each other in class but
other than that we have nothing in particular.
