  • RIPPING FARTING,IS IT A CULTURAL THING HERE IN CHINA? 2014-5-31 07:11

    I am working in hotel in Scandinavia and we have several tourist groups from China visiting us every year. Today we have a group and so far:
    -Two men have spat on the floor
    -A man burped in my face when I gave him an internet voucher
    -Other guests have been hurt from being pushed ( cut in line et.c.)
    - My colleague got burns on her legs and arms when pushed from behind attending guests with tea and coffee
    - When opening doors for them they have farted infront of me
    - Very messy people throwing garbage right on the floor while walking.
    - When trying to help them, tho not speaking their language, they laugh right up in my face and point.
    This happens everytime we have a group from China travelling in Scandinavia!
    Why is this so common? This is appalling and disrespectful in my country (Sweden)!

    These things are highly disrespectful and I can't understand why they are not taught common sense and etiquette before visiting other countries. I ALWAYS read up on do's and don'ts before going to a country with different culture- I even try learning a few words- as respect to people living there.
