Q: How do you think of this woman?

I am flying to Shenzhen from my local city airport and the airport stops me from taking my Hand sanitizer on plane.Then I said I can always drink beer on international flight and why not let me take my hand sanitizer on plane. The lady behind me then start insulting me in a tone saying you are that good?

It is so odd, I am sure she would not insult a man who drink often but she insults me cause I am happen to be a woman. I think she is not respecting the equal human right a woman deserve and she is disrespect to herself and me. What do you think of her?

I found most women in China are like her, it is so weird. They think they are good women for acting the way the local Chinese men want to be. The ladies I met in Europe are never this kind.

I think she was insulting you because the airline there has a rule, it might be a stupid rule but it's still a rule.

 

The person who stopped you taking your hand sanitizer on the plane didn't make the rule, he / she was just doing their job, they don't get to decide what individual people can take on the plane, they just try to do their job quickly and efficiently and be polite, even when people like you try to tell them the rules shouldn't apply to you.

 

I can completely relate to the woman behind you, I've been in that situation in Chinese airports plenty of times.

 

You're traveling somewhere, you're tired, you're standing in a line just wanting to get through the security area so you can sit down and relax before your flight - or maybe you're running late and worried you'll miss the flight.....

 

And someone in front of you gets told they can't take something on the plane in their carry on bag. If they'd bothered reading all the signs at the start of the line they'd know this, but they look like this is their first time ever on a plane and have never heard there are things you can't take on. Instead of just saying 'ok, my bad' they usually make a big scene, argue with the staff there and hold up everyone else in the line, because they feel they're too important for the rules to apply to them. Sometimes they get abusive and demand to see a manager.

 

While this is going on the people behind them in the line are all thinking FFS, someone smack that silly cow.

 

I'm glad it wasn't me behind you.

I'm with Stiggs, in the post-pandemic world there are lots of new rules and policies. The people who have to enforce them don't make the rules nor do they have any leeway in their implementation.

I just comply. It is easy and there is no point in being a dick.

Vicky, don't be a Karen. It isn't clever, charming or endearing.

This is so predictable, the dirty secret is they already have them brought from the French in the late 80's smuggled in by the French Foreign Legion. Thank you and your welcome.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
