Q: If you drop 10 RMB to the toilet, will you try to recover them?

It was an accident, I was about to do my thing when the banknote slipped from my back pocket.

For the record, I just “flushed it” and register the expense as: “toilet paper”.

You know what? Whatever's in your wallet may have been dropped into worse things than the toilet bowl. It's just that you didn't get to see it. Some of the notes appear to have gone through some animal's digestive tracts. Come to think of it, should we handle all our RMB with gloves? That's some thought huh?

I call troll,,,  if you were ''about to'' , then the water was clean and money floats. If it was after I would have left it for you.

why not, the previous guy holding it did, do you think you're better than him ? 

It's worth remembering that there are people in this country who have less than 50RMB to spend per month, there is a reason why there is such a thing as the Fen coins, if you get far enough out in the country side the economy works differently

When I see some of the people that handle cash in China, I would worry more about the hygienic state of notes in general circulation.

I would never tell. But some FTs in Sichuan get paid so low I they might say "yes". personally money is dirty anyway.  The same question could be asked for any denomination. What would the cost vs benefit be?

If it's a public toilet, I will offer it to the janitor. It's up to her if she wants to recover it or not. Take it or leave it.

Logically, we should be thinking this in relation to the cooks in this country and what they do... handling money is one thing, what they cook for you is another.

 

Personally, no. But my pay is better than most.

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
