Q: How often do you see Chinese people squabbling on the streets? Any funny thoughts?

I find them funny and amusing sometimes. Laughing out loud

don't see it much in Beijing now....heard some fights here...but i've never seen one..........Shanghainess I heard they like to squabble ,,..so well some other small towns...but all in all it should be much less  than before when Chinese were too poor.......when ppl got finacial problems, they all tend to lose temper easily....AM I RIGHT?.....have you seen Greece ppl on tv recently?

Whats so funny? is your Chinese good enough to understand Shanghai hua?..seriously...i dont understand it...

I like a snowy Happy new year, rather than a no sky one...Beijing's time to ban the cars---the only solution for the time being...

At least once a week. Whenever I see a crowd on the side of the street, I know it's either a dead body or two idiots fighting.

Every day.

Bargaining, subway seats, shopping, gambling, etc...

In fairness though, sometimes I see a couple of people having a really nasty squabble, only to find out later that they are just having a good time...

I've seen the same scene twice while riding past on a public bus:

 

A man and woman fighting on the street. The man punching and kicking the woman. And of course a crowd of Chinese people at a safe distance, staring and taking photos. It makes me feel sick.

 

I am very glad that Chinese men are utterly ineffective fighters (I'd really like to inhabit one of those women's bodies at that moment and teach her husband something valuable).

Yeah, I had a funny thought after the fact. The lady was squabbling with this other lady sitting in the car. The squabble for like 10 minutes I watch and walk at the same time. Later, the lady that's squabbling at the other lady she goes to the other side of the car and gets in and they drive away. 

 

Now at first I thought they were squabbling about an accident. but I didn't see any damage or wreckage. So on goes the squabbling. Then I think maybe she cut her off? But it was weird because I thought they were strangers but apparently they weren't since the lady standing outside hoped in the car and the other lady drove off...

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
