I had lived and worked in China for a number of years, earning between 5000, and up to about 18000. Rented my own apartment, paid bills etc etc..

 

When I wanted to get an L visa to hang around for an extra 30 days, I needed to provide proof of being able to look after myself here (without breaking the law by working).

 

20,000RMB.

 

WTF???? When I was on 1/4 of that, I was able to survive! Why the hell would I need to have 20K now???

 

China is stupid!

There are these things called banks, they give you a visa debit card and you can withdraw money from an ATM. 

 

Which country you're from?

 

For example, I'm from USA , so Bank of America is the bank I chose before leaving because I did my homework and found that BOA allows no-fee withdrawals from China Construction bank

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
