Q: Why do Chinese stop and block escelators?

It does not matter if it is the top or bottom, they act like no one else matters as they stop to do whatever and block the normal flow of people.

Gah!

This annoys me so much.

Even when there are signs saying 'Stand on the right; walk on the left' people STILL stand on both sides and refuse to budge.

Also, I don't understand why 90% of people all insist on using the escalators, even for a short journey, when right next to it there is a lovely wide open empty stairwell. I think this proves that Chinese ARE in fact a lazy race. I use the stairs every time.

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
