Thank you for your post and the 'chuckle' that it gave me, in fact I am still 'chuckling' as I wri ...
Whilst I can actually empathize with what you say, I see myself thinking of the idea 'TIC' and asking why you would feel that it should change in some way to suit the ideals that you brought with you. I do hope that this changes for you and you enjoy your time in China.
It's not ideals that I brought with me, I'm talking about Chinese law !
As I mentioned, I do not expect China to be France (or any other country), why would I leave in the first place ? I also find that the TIC mentality is very paternalist kinda like saying "well, boys will be boys...". Do you think Mao started a revolution thinking "this is China ?". He thought "this sucks, we need to change it !".
As for me, I do not think I am qualified to ask for a change (or not) in China. As you mentioned I'm just a guest here. I just wish they would respect the rules they set in their own home. I've been driving in China for 7 years and I can tell you very few chinese respect traffic rules. Is it asking for too much to ask for people to respect traffic regulations ?
I'm not one of these foreigners complaining that Chinese can't speak english, I really don't care about that, they are a sovereign country, I'm one of these foreigners wishing all chinese, rich or poor, would respect the law, just the law.
