第191話 フィリピン人だけじゃない

 日本人から見たフィリピン人、フィリピン人から見た日本人、どちらも言いたいことは多々ある中で、多くの日本人が抱くフィリピン人観で「時間を守らない」は最上位だろう。これはフィリピン人だけの専売特許かと思ったら、案外そうでもない。

 私の教室では大人向けの英会話もやっているので、外国人講師がいる。おかしなもので講師がイギリス人というと、多くの日本人は講師に関しては肯定的に受け止める。フィリピン人が講師だと言えば、「え~」という返事が返るだろう。英会話講師は金髪で目が青くないといけないようだ。

 ところがこのイギリス人、なかなかの御仁だ。何と言っても遅刻が多いのだ。理由がふるっている。 ①今日は向かい風が強くて早く歩けなかった ②自転車が突然パンクした(本当かなあ?) ③バスでストップのボタンを押したのに停まってくれなかった 等等。

 彼は都内の英会話スクールでも教えていたが、ちょっとモメて、そこは最近辞めたそうだ。彼曰く

「遅刻したら給料をカットされた。遅刻って言ったってたったの5分だよ。」

「規則がある以上、5分でも遅刻でしょ。仕方ないんじゃないの?」

「それはおかしい。生徒も遅刻してきた。僕が教室に着いたときはまだ生徒は誰もいなかった。だから誰にも迷惑をかけていない。あの事務の女の人、クレージーね。」

こんな調子だから、私は新しく来る生徒には「時々遅刻しますけど…」と予めことわっている。教えるのは上手だし、仲良くなると楽しいイギリス人なのだが。相手の考えに合わせようとする気持ちはサラサラ無く、同じ時間にルーズでもフィリピン人の方が遥かに使いやすい。

お久しぶりです、富嶽庵さん。
いいですね~イギリスの御仁、なんとも遅刻の理由がいけてます(笑
15分前には近くまで行き、5分前にノックをする。
日本人だけなんでしょうね、こんなに時間にきっちりとしているのは(笑

Extremely useful article. Myself & my neighbor were preparing to do some research about that. We got a great book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as descriptive as your information. I am incredibly glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Posted by: payday loans calgary | March 13, 2011 at 08:06 AM

Thanks for the marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you are a great author.I will always bookmark your blog and will come back in the future. I want to encourage continue your great job, have a nice day!

Posted by: clinique bonus time | April 03, 2011 at 07:36 PM

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. With thanks

Hey there! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

Posted by: loans people bad credit | April 27, 2011 at 07:44 AM

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any suggestions?

Posted by: How to Get a Loan with Bad Credit | April 29, 2011 at 08:27 AM

Hiya! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

Posted by: Guaranteed Bad Credit Loans | May 04, 2011 at 11:18 AM

I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I'll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later on. All the best

The crux of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not settle very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you might do well to fill in those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I would certainly end up being fascinated.

Posted by: Bad Credit Payday Loans | May 08, 2011 at 10:45 PM

When I originally commented I clicked the Notify me when new comments are added checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

Posted by: Toronto Bad Credit Loans | May 22, 2011 at 11:28 AM

Please let me know if you're looking for a author for your site. You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Many thanks!

Posted by: Loans for Bad Credit | May 24, 2011 at 10:13 PM

Your blog page is very useful. Thank you truly for providing so much usable instruction. I'll bookmark your blog website and will be most certainly returning. Again, I appreciate your work together with delivering such an abundance of precious information and facts to the many people.

Posted by: Blu Electronic Cigarettes | May 26, 2011 at 11:29 AM

Howdy! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be ok. I'm definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

Posted by: Blu Electronic Cigarette | May 29, 2011 at 04:56 PM

It's a shame you don't have a donate button! I'd most certainly donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i'll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

Posted by: x hamster | June 02, 2011 at 06:05 PM

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
