Terry Dobson was riding on the Tokyo underground when a drunk boarded the train and began to offend all the passengers.
Dobson, who had studied martial arts for some years, confronted## the man.
“What do you want?” asked the drunk.
Dobson prepared to attack him. Just at that moment an old man sitting on another bench shouted out: “Hey!”
“I’m going to beat up this foreigner, then I’ll get to you!” said the drunk.
“I like to have a drink too,” said the old man. “Every afternoon I sit down with my wife and we drink saké. Do you have a wife?”
A bit puzzled, the drunkard answered: “I don’t have a wife, I don’t have anyone. All I have is shame for myself.”
The old man asked the drunk to sit down beside him. When Dobson got off the train the man was in tears.
