A little bit extra...

I got nominated ..ugh to do a farewell greeting for our company president. In the process of this I wrote four sentences and my boss took it to one of our Japanese coworkers guffaws ensued he straightened the sentences up and added romaji to them which lead me to scratch my head and wonder if he was drunk because he typed the word shachixyo I was of course going where in the world did he get x from a little digging around and I figured out how x makes the characters we are used to writing small nowhere have I ever seen this。

so shachixyo becomes しゃちょ or 社長 oddly this works in google but not in notepad with the IME in notepad you have to type shachou to get it to give you the proper kanji. Oh and in case you wondered 社長 means company president.

In the IME you can find the full list as it is below:
