Little Things That Make Life Easier (2005-09-11)

Here's what I mean by "little things that make life easier": My bank sent me a form that makes up the bottom part of a regular A4 size paper from which it was to be detached, signed and returned to the bank.  There was a symbol of scissor along the line of the form telling me where the form should be cut.  Just as I was about to get a pair of scissors to do the job, I realized the line was already perforated.  You just tear it off like you would a check, it's all so convenient!

This is something the Japanese do best: little details that make life so much easier for the customers.
