"So? What if those habits don't relate to expats habits? They are in another country, they should adapt to the local habits."

Ok. I'm walking down the street. You are walking towards me. I hawk a big green loogey onto the ground in front of you. What would you think of me?

You are walking down the street and you pass by me. I'm standing facing a wall and having a leisurely piss, right where everyone can see me. What would you think of me?

You see me in a clothing store. Suddenly, I take out a pack of cigarettes and light one up. I stand there, right next to highly flammable materials, underneath a no smoking sign, smoking away without a care in the world, flicking my ashes all over the place. What would you think of me?

You are walking down the sidewalk. I am walking towards you. I see you, but I ignore you. I don't move left or right to bypass you. Instead, I run right into you as if you are an open doorway. What do you think of me?
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

" spitting and peeing in pulic, littering, cutting in line, pushing and shoving, reckless driving and talking laud especially on the phone "

Hmmm. Let's see, I find them all annoying, frustrating and some to be quite disgusting.

Let me add to the list if I may:

Used toilet paper in toilets (at work and in public) just left there showing brown, red and yellow streaks.

How there is no sense of personal space or privacy on trains, buses, queues, work place etc etc.

The list could go on, but I today, rather than complaining I would prefer to enjoy the rare beautiful, clean weather in Beijing.
America, land of the ignorant home of the war criminals.
China, land of the fake, home of the delusional.

Don't argue with idiots! They will always win. First they drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience!

Who rattled your cage? Did anyone suggest the Chinese should change? You never miss an opportunity (even when there isn't one) to be obscene.

I feel very bad to see that and with her reaction...
