I have to remind myself every day that although China has developed its business and industry and we ...
"everyone is busy cleaning, yet just outside in a public entrance or alley the filth has been there for years. Bottles and paper can be thrown on the ground even if a bin is nearby."
I have observed that too! The Chinese are anti-social, they keep their own homes spick and span, but once they step outside the home, they spit, litter, carry their kids up by the legs to urinate and defecate on pavements, even in shopping mall aisle, etc!
They are selfish, don't treat public peoperty like they treat their own. And of course their children learn all that from them, and do the same as they grow up!
Recently, I was at the bus stop when two students walked past, one dropped his styro-foam food box right in front of me; I pointed to his garbage and said, "hey, hey hey!" He walked back to pick it up and threw it into the rubbish bin nearby, apologising, "Sorry, I didn't see the bin just now"! I didn't believe him at all, but I didn't want to embarrass him further; the bin was a large one, and prominently located nearby, it is his habit of just discarding garbage anywhere without even thinking of looking for the bin! And the problem is, no one cares to remind him how to behave responsibly; there were dozens of Chinese standing and watching him, but no one, except this foreigner, would open his mouth to correct him! How sad!
