"Oh China"...Part 2

Year 2 in China and the "Oh China" moments have not stopped...after so many people enjoying this blog, I'd thought I'd add a few more things that happen and you can only say "Oh China"...Enjoy! =)

* You order mozzarella cheese sticks at "NYPD" -New York PIZZA Department- and it comes with ketchup to dip it in. Oh China!

*You're on a bus and the road the bus takes is blocked off. EVERYONE freaks out including the bus driver because they don't know how to get back on the right road. Everyone is calling someone for advice and feel that it's their duty to convince the bus driver. Forty-five minutes later you've finally started to get back on the bus route, but by now you're already late and hop off at the next stop to turn around and go home. I mean are you really a bus driver and NOT know the roads? Oh China!

*When boys hold hands and it's ok because they really are JUST friends...Oh China!

*You get a bag of M&Ms and a Gatorade and the total is 9.30 RMB...You give a 10 and 50 cents because they like as close to exact as possible. But the change they give is 1 RMB and a stick of Doublemint Gum!!! So I'm guessing the stick of gum is worth about 20 cents??? Oh China!!!!!!

*We live in China and the "staple" food here is rice. Well how do you explain it when you order rice at a restaurant and they proceed to tell you, "We're out"....hmmmm...Oh China! 

*You begin a new job and don't get paid for 60 days...yeah thankfully Jordan's 60 days are up this weekend! Whew! Oh China!

*You get 3 days off from work but have to make them up on the weekend. So do you really get the days off if you're making them up on Saturday and Sunday? Oh China!

* You can go to this art district a little bit out of town and find over 1,000 Mona Lisa portraits, Van Gogh paintings, etc and they try to convince you that it's real and make you pay a lot! Huh?? Oh China!

*Kids are potty trained as early as possible by wearing "split pants"...a onesie with no cloth covering the baby's bottom...and how do they do it you might ask? By lifting up there legs (anywhere: drain, trash can, smack dab in the middle of the street) and whistle in that little baby's ear... Ta Da! Pee! And yes, daily we see little kids least ten a day! Oh China! 

Of course these are only SOME of the things that make us say "Oh China", but I'm pretty sure we at least say it once a day! =)
