Q: Chinese men in public toilets

Ok so admittedly i just come back from the toilet and yet again i saw the same, once odd now accepted, behavior from Chinese men.

First of all when using the urinary after finishing their business they just stay there, don't get me wrong i also get a good shake but i don't spend an extra 20 or so seconds there. Sometimes it just looks like they want to "finish" after the foreigner, is it a face thing ? like "I can pee longer than you" ?

Secondly and that could also apply to women it's that after staying unnecessarily long at the urinary they ... just leave, I actually count on one hand (3) the number of adults i've seen clean their hands in public toilets after being here for more than a year and using such toilets nearly daily. Am i he only one in this case ? ( i say adults because i always insisted that my students clean their hands properly, and i've seen the same conducts from my ex colleagues.)

It led to my strict no handshakes, or touching handrails in China policy.

What are your experiences on the matter ?

I want to congratulate chinese guys on their mad skills.

After washing their hands upon entering the crapper, they undo their belt to unzip, then light a cigarette and make a phone call whilst having a squirt. Stand there a few mins, have another ciggie....still their trousers are hitched. Finally finish, zip, belt up have another ciggie at the wash basins, ash all over the vanity area, toss the butt into the sink and strut out oozing class without washing their hands.

Clearly they have more respect for their own dick than for anyone else. And that's how it should be!

And why don't some of them close the door when on the squatter? 

 

Man! Walk past and the door is wide open and there is nothing worse then seeing a guy squatting there with everything glaring back at you! 

 

Once went to a KTV where there were 3 squat toilets in a row about a meter apart without any sort of barrier in between. I couldn't get over that. Imagine going in there taking a steamy dump with two guys either side of you. Sick!

Why not just mind your own business and let them handle theirs ?

may i suggest, curiosity is best utilized in some other place.

Shining_brow:

If you have to deal with such people, it's relevant.

 

Consider this - guy goes to pee and doesn't wash hands at train station. As he's going through check-in, he hands his ID card (and pee and bacteria and viruses he's still got on his hands) to the police guy/girl (who then gets all those freebies!), who then will take the next ID card (and the freebies, and return a few as well)... so that person has a few hundred people's pee, shit, viruses and bacteria on their hands, when you hand over your passport....

 

Don't take the train that often? Fine... let's talk money!

Ok new one today, my office's got a shared public bathroom for the building, and when i got in, in one of the stalls a man was watching porn ... and i'm pretty sure doing something from the sounds that came from it.

And before anyone says anything no it wasn't uniqlo doing her weekly visit ... that was monday already.

Anyway got a bit disturbed for a bit, i mean it's a professional building, but then it simply TICed it an went on my way.

The most interesting for me is the small out of the way places were you have a shared coed toilet separated by a curtain or a fake plastic wall and the lady is on the squat constipated and sounds like she is having a baby or she ate spicy food and it sounds like a tidal wave mixed with an earthquake. Then you realize she is nice looking and you lose your appetite.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
