Clipping Fingernails And Serving Food- Chinese Hygiene

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 12, 2013


This woman was so busy clipping the fingernails on her hamfisted booger pickers that she almost forgot to wait on me.

Yeah she is a typical ‘service worker’ in China; insolent, sullen and lacking any humanity whatsoever. Add to this a pinch of Chinese hygiene , exemplified by her clipping her nails in the kitchen of this porta potty restaurant, and you can see just how far China has evolved over the past 5000 years.
