To me, it was littering. Just throwing trash down in the street. It is one thing to throw an orange peel or apple core into the bushes when one is out for a walk in the country, but another thing entirely to throw food wrappers down.|
When I was visiting Guangzhou a few months ago. I noticed people just drop their litter everywhere, but there aren't many trash cans, so no much choice! But then, I see a lot more people walking around cleaning up the streets in the early hours too.
In US cities, we have trash cans everywhere and only the low class people litter. The people go and empty the trash cans, but generally do not pick up garbage from the street, so when people litter here, it stays around longer.
It was annoying to me that there is no toilet paper in public toilets. That is a common courtesy here.
Spitting is not unique to China, but people tend not to do it in populous areas in the US.
One other thing that bugged me was the motorcycle taxi drivers parking right on the sidewalk, and blocking foot traffic. Everyone has to walk around them, and they don't care. Those guys would be ticketed immediately in the US. But it is a cultural thing, I guess. My girlfriend told me they are illegal, but it is hard to catch them and prove what they were doing.
