I had a classmate in my university, just want to share with you

He was outstanding. He was good at giving lectures. He liked wearing plain clothes, always clean and tidy. He has been elected as monitor of our class.

He often talked about his family. He came from a very rich family and he has two cars of his own in his hometown. He frequently told us that he came to school by plane when new term began since he lived in another province.

As a student cadre, I happened to see his personal information. He actually came from a remote mountain town and his parents are peasants. I had no intention to expose his secret but I did feel sorry for him.

In a private occasion, right after he was talking to me about his two cars (please note, TWO, not one. Seneca, have you mentioned you have two Chinese wives?), I told him frankly that I have seen his archive. I was a bit embarrassed and I didn’t want to humiliate him.

You guess what?
Just a few seconds of uneasy look in his eyes. He rebuilt his natural and confident expression and told me: "my parents are poor, but my uncle is super rich. I have been adopted by my uncle." I was surprised. Then I told him I was from a poor family and I have never going by plane. I asked him to show me the air ticket since I have never seen it before. He was quick to promise.

The result is I never saw his air ticket although I asked several times and each time he answered: "Sure, no problem"

We are turning excessively and possessively sinocentric, are we?

Dear Seneca, I have spent too much time on you and I am tired.
