“My Twitter was discovered by my boss and now I’m in a pretty pickle. I thought there were lots of people who knew I was a pervert! I’m thus confronted with a challenge I’ve never faced before. Should I delete my account, repent, or look for a new job? A tough problem!”
The judgment arrived after two days and Melonpan was far from surprised. He thanked his Japanese fans — a legion, apparently — and vowed to follow the “path of the pervert.”
“Thanks for your heartfelt words, everyone. They resonated in my chest! I’ve decided! Even if I’m jobless, I will follow the path of the pervert! Although I’m fully aware that uploading pictures and videos will tarnish my employer’s (UBS) image, I can’t bring myself to make this account private. Switzerland is a free perverted country!”
However, it did not take long before complaints started pouring in.
“Due to a whirlwind of complaints, I got fired on the first day. I think I’ll bravely return to UBS and apply to a department where people don’t recognize me. It’s difficult being a perverted gentleman, but I’ll do my best!”
“I’d hire you in a heartbeat if I had authority there, that is frivolous and unfair.”
“That is very sad, some people need to know what you do your life that doesn’t affect the job, I don’t know you but I know that you don’t mix your personal life with your job. I hope you can find a job that can accept you. メロパン Fight!”
If anything, Melonpan happens to be a successful YouTuber, too, so feel free to check out what else he does there.
