Hi,

I have a question about spitting. Why do the chinese make themselves look terriable by spitting in public?

It can spread all kinds of virus and disease do please tell me why they do this.

In addition why is it they all seem so rude on the bus a push and barge their way past you?

LOVE?So,This is a thread about LOVE,like it.
Let's think about some solutions.

Spitting
You can spit in a more disgusting way and kill all of them with you lethal virus,"Hey ,spit man,show your worst".
Or wear a mask,write on your T shirt "I am a H1N1 carrier,you probably been infected when you open you mouth ,Plz go to the nearest hospital after you read this notice."

Pushing and Barging
Eat,eat more ,when you fat enough,no one can pass you in a narrow bus,
Another option is just the same, eat ,eat tons of garlic,nobody would approach you.By they way garlic can kill the virus when some one spit to you.

(that's a joke)

Chinese usually only apply their Etiquette to people of guanxi. All strangers will be treated like they don't exist. Spitting, pulling out a booga, casually farting and burping, scratching ass, pulling down pants to take a piss or poop to them is all ok in front of strangers. If a person falls down and breaks some bones, ignore the injured person on the floor, remember that no guanxi means they should be treated like they don't exist.

It is very rude to point out their flaws too. If a person enters the lift and rips out a nasty fart. It is very rude to look like you are holding your breath with expressions of disgust. Breathe like nothing happened no matter how smelly it is. (But I don't care how rude I am to their prespective, you fart so openly in a lift you deserve to get looks of disgust!)

This is China. Its a place where they don't care if strangers suffer. And they will take strangers as a rude ass for pointing out their excretions. You don't matter to them so why should they care what you think. You need to have gunaxi in order to tell them off but once when you get the guanxi they will apply all their etiquettes when they see you which makes it almost impossible to tell them off.

By all means, let's NOT.

In the places i've lived, there's always a percentage of the population that isn't very refined, not well-educated, not well-mannered, not very considerate of others. So, there's no reason to pick on China. I'm very tired of the women-bashing/US-bashing/China-bashing that seem to be main staples of our post diets here.

差不多一样吧。吃槟榔让你流口水,口水也变成红色的。很恶心在街上看人吃槟榔吐口水,好像吐红血,也不卫生不健康。我吃过几次,觉得很难吃。听说吃槟榔应该让你很兴奋吧,可是我觉得喝一杯咖啡就够令人满意的。还有台湾的槟榔西施。男人都要跟槟榔西施聊一聊,但总是发现不禁买一包槟榔吃。

hehehehe,well. it reminded me something. once when my friends and i were in a lift from floor1 to ktv in floor4. a middle-aged uncle came in on floor2. suddenly he farted loudly,i promise i tried very very hard but just couldn't help laughing out --! and the uncle was really embarrassed--!--! you know,actually it's me not him was thought to be rude. one of my friends rescued me and him with saying that,well, uncle,everyone knows what you ate for dinner now. so everyone in the lift laughed.
some are really rude, but some never intend to do that just because it's not easy to control sometimes i think. and people around pretended there's nothing happened just show their etiquette not to laugh at him/her like me--!(up to certain points, this because people think farting can't be controlled sometimes,not for rude people's cases)
but spitting is really bad,very very bad,so is pissing everywhere(especially so called old uncles).and you are definitely right to point it out,you know,sometimes people don't say anything because they don't wanna get in trouble(most i point out when with friends,but by myself,a little afraid to do so),and all good people will actually appreciate your deed even though they don't say anything, if some one gives you bad remarks,it means he/she is nasty,so no need to care about them.

ps: my hometwon is hunan, most people(almost every one)eat 槟榔,that's a bad habit. my mom quitted after she worked in a 槟榔 company for a short time,it's really dirty. i don't eat it because its taste is bad for me-<-

the fist time I knew 槟榔 is around 15,an aunty ate this and smoked a lot,some times she felt embarrassed to eat it infront of us(because all kids just kept quite and stared at her and her 槟榔,that's new for us),so she went another room ,smoked and ate alone.
after around 4 years, she died of throat cancer.My mom definitely blamed that aunty's death on 槟榔(because in her acquaintances ,only this aunty eat it,and her other acquainted smokers SEEMS healthy)

well,i know something about why hunan people started eating 槟榔, it's a nice legend. but yeah,it causes many terrible diseases. most people think
smoke+alcohol are horrible killers,and if adding 槟榔,even worse --!

呵呵。。你那么极端。不用"严正抗议性别歧视"。大部份的槟榔摊不是槟榔西施的。她们无所谓得卖给你。你一定不是第一个女性顾客。哈哈

不过穿着稀少、性感的年輕女性在路邊招攬是很争论的。cool smiley

ha,开完笑的,没吃过是因为没有想过要吃。
没见过美女卖槟榔,倒是有幸见过男的光着膀子挺个大肚子狂嚼狂吐。
不过槟榔西施还好啦,都是美女推销商品,没看出来和电视上的广告模特有什么本质的区别,一个是专业演员一个是群众演员?

也许你说得对。不过,性感的年轻美女在路边比电视上的广告模特更真实的。我是个普通男人,美女作什么都不介意,但是怕怕有性骚扰的问题或是可能有性犯罪活动。

如果穿着少帮助卖很多槟榔的话,你就这样的方法能卖槟榔吗?

这个,我要是完全没有选择可能会试试哦,不过在这之前我可能已经经历过了抢银行被抓,闯空门被狗追,到养老院骗吃被识破,传销盗版光碟被城管揍。。。,最后终于发现犯罪是可耻的,劳动是光荣的,于是默默地穿上比基尼,开始卖槟榔。。。。。sad smiley

额。。。现在讲故事也不容易了,设定一个卖槟榔的美女,还不能忘了人物背景。。。好吧,这个美女该不该有男朋友或者老公呢?重新安排一下。

这个美女很命苦,生活很艰辛,后来嫁给一个不学无术的老公,美女要辛苦卖槟榔养家,回家还遭受家庭暴力,后来,美女受不了了,就。。。。。。把她老公杀了,她自己进了监狱。

再后来,她老公的鬼魂终于醒悟了,非常后悔自己做过的事情,就帮助美女逃狱躲进一个小村子,美女从此过着与世隔绝的农耕生活,她老公的后来变成了美女的一条宠物狗,每天给她看家守院子。

全剧终

smiling bouncing smiley虾虾虾。。。谢了。你的故事写了真有两下子的。不过,你对她老公十分凶狠的,会使我想哭。嘿嘿。。。。

我喜欢美满结局。实际上,美国人一般都喜欢故事有美满结局。这是跟中国人可能一个文化差异吧。你觉得呢?

全世界人都喜欢美满结局吧,美国电影的英雄拯救世界,最后很直白的地化险为夷,皆大欢喜。
中国也是一样吧,像梁祝,男女主角都被折磨死了,最后还要化成蝴蝶一起飞飞飞,(嘿嘿,真正的死了都要爱),这个其实也是团圆结局了。牛郎织女被分银河两边了,最后还是能每年见上一面,多好啊,反正总归是想到办法团圆了。

皆大欢喜的结局给人快乐和希望,悲惨的故事让人反省和自我调整,都是要引导积极地生活。西方人表达更直白,东方人更委婉,但委婉和直白都是一样的,人们都会喜欢阳光美好的事情,或者会借悲剧来反省应该怎样做才能阳光明媚万里无云。要真悲剧让人看不到一丁点希望了,那样的悲剧本身就是一个悲剧了。
