whew! so happy to read that other chinese are not defending their behavior.

i used to think of such behavior as making a bad impression on the whole, but i've changed my perspective. one badly behaving person doesn't make the whole nation/culture badly behaving. it's when the majority are badly behaving that you need to start worrying. but usually good rules and the majority are good. some times the badly-behaving ones just get all the attention.

boy do i wish you were right. they defend all other types of bad behavior. browse the internet, you will see chinese defending their fellow people cutting queues and urinating and defecating in public. they will defend men who beat up their wives and men who use their physical size to bully others. they will defend physical intimidation, threats, harsh/inhumane punishments. the list goes on. though every now and then you will see some chinese crying out against outrageous behavior, but for the most part, too many chinese support bad behavior in general. i can accept that some people will behave badly, but for just one person to voice support for it, is already one person too many.

We have some hotels who will put a scale at the corner with a little note that says, "Eat all you can but left overs shall be charged as wastages". It works. Anyway, nobody goes crazy over shrimps.
