Q: Man on subway was eating a cracker which fell on me. What should I do?

I first brushed away the the cracker crumb (I sit, it fall on lap) very loudly, as loud as brushing can, and then I looked at him annoyed, but not say anything. He immediately put up hand to say "sorry" (I have headphones on).

 

Maybe because of my looking, he eventually walked away. What is very interesting is that he had large box of cookies, he may have continue to eat if I didn't do anything.

Make your time more enjoyable in China, brush the cracker away, and smile at him. We all have are bad days, but try to let the little things pass, you'll be happier.

You're complaining about free food crumbs? I would have asked for a cookie.

I would poke him in the chest and then point at what he did. Then brush it away. I purposefully avoid eating Chinese on the bus, sometimes it is too difficult. I have seen this countless times involving other Chinese. They both usually seem to just ignore it. It  is important to correct bad behavior, smiling at it, means it is ok, feel free to do it again.

  You should have screamed at him and stolen his food, then pissed on his shoes, eaten his food in front of him, then vomited it back in his face. Then kicked him in the balls. Then kicked him in the face. Then kicked him in the balls and in the face. But I mean, sure, all of this might seem excessive to some, but shit, these were crumbs for God's sake. And they landed on you. You would have to be a crazy person to allow such an outrage to pass unchecked.

  I personally carry a gun wherever I go, and I have shot and killed nine people in as many years here. One of them was a seven year old boy, and truth be told I feel a little guilty about that, but his transformer was brushing against my arm in such a way that it caused an itch and I just lost it. These things happen.

WTF?  If it was pick-pocketing or something I'd get it.  Usually I consider myself lucky if I get off the underground not smelling of piss .

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
