Odd Japanese English: Paper Driver

Japanese English paper driver ペーパードライバー
Luckily you don't really need a car to travel around Japanese cities because they are well connected by trains and buses. Moreover they don't break down that often unless there is a typhoon or earthquake...

    1. Nope I don't... but we do have a chinese proverb involving paper.
      The literal translation means writing military on paper (which means all talk and no action)

      BTW, you came back to my blog XD
