Blowing your nose into a tissue is not rude in most cultures around the world. Nor is paying for your own dinner. Those are just cultural differences. What I have seen  China many times in China are Chinese plugging one nostril and farmers blowing the snot out of their nose onto the floor. That is egregiously disgusting in almost all cultures. As is spitting everywhere, ignoring no-smoking signs, jay-walking everywhere, ignoring traffic signs, honking your car horn incessantly, throwing your rubbish wherever you please,dumping garbage on side roads, caging up dogs, having arguments/fights in public, not holding doors open for people, not saying thank you or your welcome,fighting over money in restaurants, looking down on poor people, showing off your wealth...these are all very rude means of behaviour in almost any country in the world but are prevalent everywhere in China on a daily basis. Let's get real here. China has a long, long way to go to catch up with the etiquette of the developed, civilized world.
