申請するとき、どれを希望するか書くところがあるわけ。

When you apply, there's a space to write which you'd like to get.


僕は毎年五年間のやつを希望すると書いておき、毎年一年間のやつしかもらえない。

Every year I write in that I'd like a five-year permit, and every year they give me the one-year.


今年は最後なので、一年間だけを希望すると書いたら、ほら、三年間が出ちゃった。

This year being my last year here, I wrote in that I wanted the one-year. So, what do you know, they gave me a three-year.
