    When In Rome (Or China)

    | China | Tourists/Travel

    (I am on a small group tour of China. One of the other tourists has been grumpy and loudly complaining all week. At the moment, he’s complaining to the Chinese tour guide.)

    Tourist: “There were no English channels on the TV. I ended up watching the basketball game, but because there wasn’t an English commentary I listened to my mp3 player to drown out the horrible sound of the Chinese commentary.”

    Tour guide: *speechless*

    Tourist: “And you really should tell them to get some English newspapers in their hotels if they want people to stay here!”

    (At this point, I’m fed up with hearing him complain.)

    Me: “You’re in China. Of course things are in their language. If you want to read the newspaper, get a Chinese to English dictionary.”

    Tourist: “Why would I want to read Chinese?!”
