    一哭,二闹,三上吊

    The Three Levels: Level 1 - crying, level 2 - kick up a fuss, level 3 - threaten to hang onself.

    So far, level 2.

    "In Japan, if you screw up, the best thing is to go to the authorities and make a big show of how sorry you are, and how bad you feel, and how you will never do it again. It's pro forma, but the authorities will be impressed by how you've learnt your lesson. That's sumimasen: apology without end. It's the Japanese version of throwing yourself on the mercy of the court. It's understood to be the best way to get leniency."
