I’m not a big Facebook fan, I use it moderately rather than spending 25 hours a day glued to it like many people, but it is useful to be able to see what friends are up to from their Facebook captions. And following my little KFC incident, it’s nice to see that that I’m not the only angry laowai having a bad China day. Here’s what one of my English friend’s (living in Shanghai) had as her caption the other day:
“….. hated her trip to Tesco … esp when the woman tried to pay for her stuff when mine was still being scanned through!!!!”
Sorry to hear that love, but it does happen here quite a bit. And as a pre-emptive strike against our new friend, Richard Guy, I suppose I should point out that a bit of queue jumping here in Shanghai is certainly a lot more preferable to what happens in supermarkets in England, where a 57 year old man was killed just a few days ago!
