comment Do you use 投入 to mean any input for a thin paper?
@Chocolate do you mean dumping ground for anything irregardless of size. So for the train ticket, it is a dumping ground for ticket. For vending machine it is dumping ground for empty cans?

comment What is the difference with 引充 and 引当
@Ito Agreed. Your apprehension does make senses. I will leave this question unanswered state for now. As a non-native speaker, I am not in the position to judge if it is correct. I will wait for other native speaker to answer. But we do have scarcity of native speaker in the community though.

comment What is the difference with 引充 and 引当
@Ito I don't know, but maybe since 引充 was no longer used, 引当 is now used to mean the original too. Maybe the explanation was also from 40 years ago when 引充 is stil used. It may not apply now. But I am not sure. will wait for other answer.

comment How to “shoo away” a sales clerk?
I have one clarification. why is it the shoo away translated as 追い払う? Doesn't it mean add payment? So your saying to the clerk that your adding payment even if you haven't bought anything?

Since Ito is a native speaker, then I guess I would close this question. Maybe the word is localized. I wont delete it for reference in future.

comment What is the difference with 引充 and 引当
@summea I asked my Japanese colleague and he said that 引充 is a Japanese word. I am also confused since I cannot see it in any dictionary but I can search other Japanese websites using it. He just said for the identifying the キャリアNo. I should use 引充. But he cannot explain why it is more appropriate.

comment How to differentiate friend level in Japanese?
I think since best friend connotes to be the no.1 close friend then can 一番親友 suffice?

Actually my manager keeps on saying it means master but I doubt that is what he meant.
