Q: 'Merican men seen as pervert?

Had a discussion with a chinese employee of mine. He wan't working hard, slacking with low productivity. So we decided to fire him. Human Resource called him inthe head office, I was there and told him teh bad news. He was quite mad and said "you all 'Merican, you all pervert. Anyways i don't want work with perverts" and left.

He made me think... was it the thought of a mad unproductive man or a vision spread into stereotype?

The colleague you fired was obviously mad that you let him go and wanted to vent his anger. And if he honestly believes that all "'Merican" men are perverts then he is obviously very narrow-minded and has probably never left China. I doubt that the guy's response was "a vision spread into stereotype".

Pervert is a quality that transcends ethnicity.

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
