Witnessed a spot of rudeness today that really wilted my faith in humanity.
This French girl snapped at two Hong Kong locals at her library table and forced them to move. Really? It was the rudest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do. Also, she moved my friend’s table while she was in the bathroom. Authoritative, impulsive, arrogant – adopting subconscious coloniser complex?
All this, during my rough draft of cross-cultural impact in Hong Kong between European and Chinese cultures…so terribly ironic.
