Since I join here, I found something very interesting....
Some foreigners are complaining that Chinese lie all the time and telling them not to lie....
What they lie and why they lie ?
The lies they do Is serious enough to hurt people or they just do petty lies ?  Do they know they are lying ?

I have many Chinese friends in United States.
They are all good friends of mine and I've never felt they lie to me.....
Unfortunately none of them from main land China....

That is....

We need to take a close look at those lies, are they BAD lies or...some white lies that wouldn't hurt much. And directly saying one country's people are liars without deeper understanding or investigation of the root reasons might be really inapporiarate.

I don't know what you meant by  Chinese Are Liars, and I don't know if you have encountered such Chinese. I believe some do, but that is definitely not all of us. Plus, people probably need to  make some "soundy" excuses to live, and that is sometimes quite complusory, if you want to live in a complicated society, dealing with ALL kinds of people.

Still, haven't totally got you...

I am just curious......

I like Chinese.
I was kind surprised that some foreigners tell to Chinese  " not to lie ".
This is somewhat surprised me......

Liars are all over this world!

Liars  have no nationality. But there are a lot of kind people in this world.
Nobody can be sure that there are no liars in western countries

it is better put this way, there are liars in China.

it is strange to hear the conclusion on the basis of mere overhearing.

it is just like saying, you is also a liar because i heard somewhere you are. it is convincing.
definitely not.

if you want to know the fact, make friends with Chinese people, and you will get to know the truth.

so next time dont jump to a conclusion before an investigation is done.
