Happy New Year Mr. Greendragon!

Sorry I haven't been following the news you mentioned. But it doe ...


1. Apparently you seldom care about news reports about migrant workers.
You seldom talk with migrant construction workers.

I did a lot.

2. Things are improved a lot nowadays.
Few of young Chinese like to work as a migrant construction workers. The work is too hard to bear for young Chinese. So, nowadays, many construction workers can earn RMB 3,000~RMB 9,000 a month.

3. Are you only interesting in the news reports about how the rich Chinese flout the wealth?
Are you only interesting in how Li Gang's children enjoy their decent living?

Ne-tigress's grandfather was a former high ranking CPC member.
Now, Ne-tigress are living in the metropolis, Beijing, the capital of mainland China. You had a relative decent living in childhood and at present.

I came from a poor rural area, though I am living a large city now. Many people from my hometown are still migrant workers.

So, Ne-tigress defend the rich and powerful guys while I often say sth for migrant workers.  

Right?

In the Christmas Eve,
when you were laughing around the pine tree, enjoying the delicious food, and hearing stories near the furnace,

did you notice the little match girl in the cold street?

did you notice the little match girl in the cold street?

Literally, there was none around.
Metaphorically, I knew it, and failed it, despite my best wishes.

In the Night to Christmas Eve, int the first hour of the 24th, I arrived at a Station, with the last train of the Night.
For me, it was the Destination of my Journey.
However, for a young Chinese or Taiwanese Student who got there on the same train, it apparantly was not.

As I was getting to the Station Hall, he turned back from there into the Underpass to Approach me with his Issue. He asked me if I knew wether or not the Station Hall or some other nearby Asylum, remained open through the Night until Resumption of Personal Transport in the early Morning and the departure of his Connection Train. (For your Understanding: Unlike China's Point to Point Rail Network, it's a Network with connecting Hubs here)
Although he was happy to find someone who could reply him in his own Lingua, I could not answer his Question.
Neither did I manage to find Information on the Opening Hours, and wether or not the Station Hall of this small Town remained open through the night in time, before my longing to arrive exceeded my Willingness to help him finding those Information.
So in the End I suggested him:"F*** Opening Hours, let's get a Taxi, You shall be my and my Familie's Guest tonight if you wish so", and made a call to have Supper and a Bed arranged for him.
The next Morning we arranged him a lift to his destination the same day, so he too could see his Relatives on Christmas Eve, before we ourselves left for the Celebration on the Family Manor.


I hope he was not too disappointed about my Failure to answer his Question.

Jfenix,
If you had gotten to know this Country while you lived here, you'd have noticed the cultural Differences in Communication Style Context, and understood why I failed him, measured by local Standards.

What he asked for was Opening Hours of the Station Hall or alternative nearby Shelters.
His explicit Question was to find out wether or not he had a shelter for the Night.
The implicated Issue by, both comparably more indirect communication styles, your american standards, just as by his chinese standards, was finding a shelter for the night. This is understandable to him, me, you, and most Readers here.
However, he did not explicitely address this issue, rather the only Issue he explicitely stated was only finding out the information wether or not he had a public shelter available to him nearby.
This is the local understanding.
Thus, I failed him by local Standards on the issue he was willing to explictly communicate, and only provided him a substitute or an alternative to the Station hall.

If he had asked a local without much international experience or cultural awareness the same, without openly and clearly addressing the issue of finding a solution for his stay, rather than the need for a piece of Information, he had needlessly frozen his sorry ar*e off on Christmas Eve, despite the best Intentions of whomever he had asked.
