it is difficult to become real friends with foreigners from developed countries
deep in their heart, they still hold prejudice to Chinese people


It's difficult to make friends with Chinese. Deep in their hearts they still believe that foreigners are stupid, they are rich, they hate the Chinese, they have big noses and they don't know how to use chop-sticks.

One of my first business contacts with a Chinese person in China went something like this:
I would buy the same product from her in her grocery store. The first time she smiled benevolently at me. ...


About 3-4 years ago i went to buy a coke from a shop. The woman at the till was very nice and she was excited that i spoke quite good Chinese. Then suddently the boss tells her that i should pay more because i am a foreigner! They both already knew that i spoke Chinese and they still kept talking about how to cheat my money (and for no reason).
I did not buy the beverage and went to a supermarket further down the road.

most of us got our first lesson about foreigners from books, but was it the same as your personal contact with them?


most of foreigner are very nice and friendly.

maybe it's hard to make pure friendship with them, but at least we can be good colleague in company.

Actually huang, this overcharging foreigners is quite prevalent in China. Things that I was quoted 100 Yuan for my beloved and departed could get for 20 Yuan....kinda sucks don't you think?
