I’ve noticed that there are things that I do here that I probably wouldn’t even attempt back at home in Canada, and yet for some reason, I can get away with them here in China. So I decided to start a series of short little posts detailing these behaviours. While I have been trying to publish new posts once a week, these little gems will not be as regular – I’ll just post something whenever it happens. Enjoy!
Here’s “Things I Can Apparently Get Away With, Because I’m a Foreigner” Part 1:
“Hey! 关门! I’m cold!!”
Yelling at random strangers in a restaurant to close the door.
It’s February people, it’s cold outside. I know you are wearing four inch thick long underwear AND your down coat inside, but I don’t like eating with my coat on. Those long plastic flap things that they put over the doors here don’t do much to stop the wind from whistling in, and I’m sitting right across from that open door. So when you come in from outside, close the bloody door behind you and resign yourself to unzipping your coat a tad if you’re hot!
