Articles : RachelDiD commented on news Seven Common Pick Pocket Tricks and How to Prevent Them

Theft is common enough on sleeper trains, simply because it is so convenient. Don't be too worried, though. I've used sleeper trains several times (including hard sleepers, where stealing is much easier). With just a modicum of common sense (keep your bag under your bed, don't carry a small fortune with you, exc), ... Full Comment>>

Around China : RachelDiD commented on news Parents Planning Second Child Write ‘Guarantee of Love’ to Daughter

I know, right? There was never any negotiations when my siblings were born. My parents juspt told me I would have a new brother/sister, spent the following 9 months or so getting me used to the idea that I would share...and assumed I would love them. Almost as if they didn't reaor me to be a selfish little shit who ... Full Comment>>

Articles : RachelDiD commented on news Book Smart, Not Street Smart: Beijing PhD Student Tricked by Computer Sales Clerk

So, instead of using newegg.cn where he can pretty much compare every available model, he decides to use a store. And, instead of going to an actual, licensed resale store, he goes to Zhongguancun? They don't teach common sense in schools, especially not in China. I suppose this is because it is not scored on the ... Full Comment>>

Around China : RachelDiD commented on news Update: Chongqing Passenger Fined 35,000 RMB

That's the thing, though...when you sit in the seats nearest to the exit door, the stewardesses stand right next to you and make sure that you listen through the safety lecture. You have to orally confirm that you understand and accept your responsibilites to the other passengers if their is an emergency. Chinese ... Full Comment>>

Around China : RachelDiD commented on news 29 Year Old Tiny Man Child Sues Parents for Refusing to Support Him

'Took naps and played on his multiple cell phones.' I'm fairly sure that the vast majority of my Chinese colleagues "earn" a larger paycheck than average doing EXACTLY that, every minute of the working day. I didn't know it was possible to be lazier than them, but this guy proves me wrong, doesn't he? Full Comment>>

Articles : RachelDiD commented on news Expert Says 80% of Wealthy Chinese Will Fall Back Into Poverty in the Next Three Years

I also used to think Chinese were hardworking...probably because Chinese immigrants to Western countries are. But then, I came here, and it blew my mind. I never had to stand over grown adults to make them do their jobs before, and now I do it all the time, like they are 9. I honestly believe that Chinese play a ... Full Comment>>

No joke, when one of my friends had to file a police report in China, he actually had to ask the officers not to point their guns at him while they were cleaning them at their desks. Idiots with guns does not even begin to describe the law enforcement situation in this country. Full Comment>>

If that is indeed real--what a hipster asshole. The fact that no one ran him over makes me think that Hainanren must be exceptionally patient. It's hard enough to deal with 'foreign devil' stereotypes and chatter when you are a responsible, hardworking, adult when you don't have douches like this to deal with. Full Comment>>

The advertisement company had a right to deny the guy access to their sign. They owned it, he didn't, they wanted to profit from it. I might have felt worse for him, if he hadn't started out with a job (not a great one, but a job), and chosen to be a drifter instead. Full Comment>>

Around China : RachelDiD commented on news Danger: China’s Public Fountains May Not be as Harmless as You Think

I feel that this piece highlights the dangers of letting young children run about unsupervised in water fountains and large crowds. The fountains are fine, the approach to parenting is not. Not that I am opposed to free-range parenting, but there are limits. I seriously don't get how some grand/parents freak the ... Full Comment>>

The man attempts to rape a woman, on a public street, in front of people, and he gets 5 years and deportation. I had no idea that the Chinese legal system was as pitiful about slapping rapists on the wrist as my own country's. Full Comment>>

Lol, but this doesn't sound like the type of thing I would do at a party. It's more like what would happen if I got drunk on a Bad China Day, and then saw an open crate ready to be shipped to the US (my native country). Full Comment>>

That was my first question. I hope not, if only for the sake of the kids paying 45K a year for what they must believe is an exciting opportunity to live in China & pick up language skills while getting the degree. It would really be an injustice to them, if, after shelling out like that, they get to go home with ... Full Comment>>
