Accounting Episodes as Communicative Practice Affecting Cultural Knowledge
Unformatted Document Text:  15 The problematic event Hiroko encountered was that her classmate did not show up for the arrangement that she herself had initiated. Hiroko confronted the classmate when they met in the next class. The fact that Hiroko confronted her in the occasion in which they saw each other anyway instead of keeping calling her immediately indicates that her confrontation took a passive form. In addition, the way Hiroko inserted, “just in case,” in between her confrontational statements, “I was there” and “You didn’t come,” demonstrates that she did not take a tough stance in confronting her classmate. After her classmate’s response, “Oh, sorry I forgot,” which does not sound that she took the incident seriously, Hiroko did not pursue the issue further. She could have blamed her classmate for forgetting about the arrangement and for making “a lame excuse.” Hiroko could have explained to her that she had made a phone call to her and worried about her whereabouts. If she had engaged further in the accounting episode, there might have even been a possibility that she had found something unexpected (e.g., a misunderstanding that Hiroko thought they had made an arrangement but for her classmate it was not a promise). But she “gave up” on pursuing the issue further, though she thought, “It was you [the classmate] who asked me.” The reasons for Hiroko’s not engaging in the accounting episode further were: that she “didn’t have much expectation;” that “it wasn’t the first time;” and that she “had heard from other people” about the similar experiences. In understanding the classmate’s behavior, Hiroko did not talk with her directly.

The problematic event Hiroko encountered was that her
classmate did not show up for the arrangement that she herself
had initiated. Hiroko confronted the classmate when they met
in the next class. The fact that Hiroko confronted her in the
occasion in which they saw each other anyway instead of keeping
calling her immediately indicates that her confrontation took
a passive form. In addition, the way Hiroko inserted, “just in
case,” in between her confrontational statements, “I was there”
and “You didn’t come,” demonstrates that she did not take a
tough stance in confronting her classmate. After her
classmate’s response, “Oh, sorry I forgot,” which does not
sound that she took the incident seriously, Hiroko did not
pursue the issue further. She could have blamed her classmate
for forgetting about the arrangement and for making “a lame
excuse.” Hiroko could have explained to her that she had made
a phone call to her and worried about her whereabouts. If she
had engaged further in the accounting episode, there might have
even been a possibility that she had found something unexpected
(e.g., a misunderstanding that Hiroko thought they had made an
arrangement but for her classmate it was not a promise). But
she “gave up” on pursuing the issue further, though she thought,
“It was you [the classmate] who asked me.”
The reasons for Hiroko’s not engaging in the accounting
episode further were: that she “didn’t have much expectation;”
that “it wasn’t the first time;” and that she “had heard from
other people” about the similar experiences. In understanding
the classmate’s behavior, Hiroko did not talk with her directly.
