I've heard of this guy that had a gas problem. During class he would occasionally walk around the room and while the student was studying he would pass gas in front of them. He thought it was funny until one day one of the students almost died from the fart smell that she breathed in. She was taken to the hospital but she recovered successfully. After the other students heard about this they all dropped his class. Since there wasn't anybody to teach anymore he ended up working in a restaurant as a waiter. Little do people know about this and everytime he has to bring the food to the customers they think it is the food they are smelling, but it's really his fart passing through the air. 

Another story I heard was a kid that was teaching had his passport and belongings taken from him. He posted all types of bad stuff about a particular school and the people at the school actually responded. The cops were involved and he eventually got his passport although many of his belongings were missing he fled the country in an attempt to not have to go through any more troubles anymore. 

Some of the worst teaching stories I really actually know of are the one's where the teacher plays games with the students and the parents have to still pay that tuition to the school. Well, at least the kids learned how to play UNO and card games while they were at school. They can now play poker at a Casino. No, not really!

One time I was teaching a college English class and I was geting a little frustrated that the class wasn't paying attention and contributing to the class. So, while holding onto the text book,  I raised up my hands in the air and prepared to shout something to get the students' attention.  Well, to my surprise, the textbook in my hand smacked into flourescent light bulb that was above the blackboard, making a thunderous noise as the bulb shattered,  and glass rained around the room.

 

I never had another problem to keep the students' attention or focus!

How about secondary school kids telling the foreign teacher that unless they taught them "The Chinese Way" (i.e. telling them what to memorize for the test) they would complain to the Principal and get the teacher fired!  This actually happened to me and I could not believe the nerve the little bastards had to blackmale their teacher.  In my 53 years on Earth I have never seen such spoiled kids than here in Beijing.

Never trust any Chinese to tell you anything that is 100% true! Chinese employers will tell you anything to to get you to agree with what they want and need. They are masters at manipulation and exploitation.

P.S. Is it just me or is China just totally void of ethics?

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
