Q: What's the funniest thing you have seen in China?

To be honest in most countries you will seem something that makes you laugh, whether it is someone doing something that is crazy, or something that seems just over the top. Comments please

The techno-colored dogs/ hairstyles always make me giggle.

But funniest would have to be a toss up. Once stopped to talk to this woman and little boy and asked her if this was her son. Without missing a beat, the kid looked up at me with a huge shit-eating grin and said "I'm not her son. I'm too cute to be her son"

The other was a local guy wanting to take me to a "strip show" but I only tell that story when I'm out drinking.

Its usually the Chinglish on clothing. My two favorites were a tiny little girl wearing a bright pink shirt with white lettering that said "lard". And my other favorite was a mother wheeling a baby carriage wearing a long sweater reading "niggars love blonds." Actually got a picture of that one.

I hope I can add to this as I check my photos. One funny thing I saw was a shop that had had the front window broken and instead of taking out the broken pane the owner put up another frame behind the original one, not the same size, and fitted it with what was obviously a left over piece of glass so when you looked into the broken window you saw another window behind it! Doh!

I don't remember if this was the funniest, but it's definitely memorable. I was talking to a friend of mine, and some young guy drove by in a small truck. He looked surprised. After he had already driven by, he turned to say hello to me, without paying attention to where he was driving. He could easily have run into other students or the gate. I mean, I've had people stare at me as they drive past, but at least they pay attention to where they're going! My friend and I giggled afterwards.

It might not be the funniest, but the last time I laughed hard was on a big, flat, empty street. A guy on a bicycle, young, sober, with no obstruction around him or holes in the ground.Then out of fucking nowhere he fell down, and had that really surprised look on his face!

I laughed in his face really loud.

The places and locations that people choose to piss, take a shit, etc;

under a street lamp at night, when stepping in the shadows would be much less obvious,

in front of a door  to a busy storefront as people are trying to walk in and out,

dropping thier kids pants and holding them over a trashcan when the freakin WC is only ten paces away.

 

Have any other guys been standing at a urinal doing thier thing when all of the sudden a female janitor appears and starts mopping at your feet?

I was at Wutai Shan and saw a Monk with an iPhone which I thought was a strange paradox.

Not funny but strange. The other day I saw two guys standing unharnessed on top of an old 50mt tall brick chimney slowly knocking down the bricks with sledge hammers. They had their backs to the outer edge with their heels almost hanging over it as they swung the hammers knocking off bricks and working their way around the rim. I work in a safety related field and I wish I had my camera as this was extremely dangerous even by Chinese standards.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
