Thievery and Doing Business in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 12, 2011


I’ve done business in a few countries and thought I’d seen it all- and then I came to China. It’s not as as these people are immoral for according to m-w.com immoral is ” conflicting with generally or traditionally held moral principles” and in China there are no traditionally held moral principles, so lucky for them, they are just normal people from China.
As an example my friend said that he’d started a business in China a few years ago. He had to pay a supplier and had a check to do so. One of his employees volunteered to take the check to the supplier so my friend said ok and handed him the check. A few weeks later my friend saw the supplier and thought all was ok but the supplier was extremely upset. Finally my friend asked what was wrong and he was told that his employee, the guy who had volunteered to take the check to the supplier had not done as asked. My friend’s employee took the check to the supplier and did not give it to him but said that if the supplier wanted it- money he was rightfully owed, the supplier had to pay a bribe to my friends employee….wtf?
Yeah the Chinese guy was trying to extort cash from a one of my friends suppliers.
Even more sad is that when my friend found out he fired his employee and the employee was blow away. He could not figure out what he’d done wrong……This is China….

This guy, known as ‘dumbass’, covered his China communist tv microphone with a condom to keep it dry. I guess his mic must be an extra small as well…

China’s Ethical Crisis and Shitty English

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 12, 2011


A good friend of mine comes from civiliation but now lives in China. He, being from civilization thinks more or less as I do and he too thinks that there is some good in China as well as some bad. As for the good……um…. er…..

As for the bad, the air, the water, the polluted food, the form of governan….but I digress. Anyway , my friend knows a chinese guy who graduated from school and this Chinese guy’s  full time job is to get fake ID’s and take Englsh exams for Chinese who want to study overseas….wtf?

Yeah no kidding. This guy has a contact who makes fake identification for this college grad and his full time job is to take English tests so little one-child disappointments can go to the land of milk and honey….
