Q: Why are Chinese parents/grandparents so clueless when picking up up their kids from school?

It's chaos with double and triple parking, wrong side of the road, anything goes in the rabble.

It does force the traffic to slow down. Kids will only get hit at slow speed.

You forgot to add: fight like 90 to get your kid then stand in the middle of the walkway to praise/pamper/stuff the little dumpling. Pushing other peoples' kids out of the way. Trying to outdo the snacks and toys that other parents/grandparents bring. Asking the kids how their day was while checking the status of their online games on their mobile phones. And so on and so on and so on...

It's the "herd" or "stockyard" phenomenon.  Happens anywhere and everywhere you have animal (and that includes us) overpopulation.  From rats' mazes in science labs to overcrowded nightclubs and football stadia, standing-room-only trains, and... countries.

You don't need cars for that top happen. Outside my building is a pickup spot for busses to some of the local schools. In the morning you have the parents/grandparents there doing the same thing. Before the bus comes they are just talking to their fellow parents/grandparents, as soon as the bus is there, everyone tries to push their child in first. It's just maybe 5 kids per bus and the busses are full size 40-50 seat ones and at this point in their morning runs, they are pretty much empty. Why couldn't this sort of thing go down in an orderly way.

It's because here you have to pay for the kids education at an early age...

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
