Yes, I am a salaryman

When I travel in business here in Japan and find myself on the Shinkansen train heading back to Tokyo in the evening I like to have a beer or two. I find it very relaxing and refreshing after a tiring business trip to chill out on the moving train with a beer.
This is very Salaryman-ish and a casual look over any passengers in a suit at the post 6pm train will show that most salarymen chose this approach.

Drinking beer on the train home from work gives you 1 Salaryman point. However, drinking a "one cup Ozeki" cup of Japanese sake gives you 5 salaryman points. This is the pinnacle of salaryman-ishness and mixing it up with some dried squid gives 2 bonus points.
I hope and dream that even I, can one day reach these heights of salaryman-ishness...

I presume points are subtracted in substantial amounts for "Two Salarymen One Cup Ozeki"?

Haha, nice Pengiun! 1 point to you as a bonus if I have the authority to give one out!

Ozeki One Cup - mazui! It smells like the stuff you put down the shower drain to dissolve the gunk...
