Young people don't know how to show respect.
President Hirata said, “Young people today don’t know how to show respect,” to me.
Well…I thought so, too, because it was sad to see your students walk toward you and say nothing to you.
A few months later, this was what happened.
When a student came to the instructors’ lounge, he or she would stand erect in front of the closed door and shout, “My name is such and such! I belong to the class such and such! I came to talk to Professor such and such! May I come in?” Whoever sits near the door would say, “Come in!” and the student would say, “Thank you!” open the door, and go into the instructors’ lounge.
Well… this is not what I had in mind.
