One of my many dumb diversions of late is following the antics of rude mainland Chinese citizens and tourists on YouTube. Pretty entertaining.
Watch them eat. Watch them take anything that's not nailed down. Even the stones off the beach. Or fight over makeup. Or let their children relieve themselves at the train station. Or steal the toilet seats. Or destroy ancient land formations. Or throw hissy fits at the hotel. Or abandon their suitcases. And boy, can they fight over train and airplane seats.
carving their names in ancient relics. Not welcome in Japan and many other parts of Asia these days and quickly wearing out their welcome in Africa and Europe.
I will never forget being at the French Laundry and having a Chinese diner at the next table stuff a whole brioche in his mouth at one time and act like a complete animal. Staff had to come over and lecture him on manners and put his coat back on. They were kicked out of this Osaka restaurant for throwing shrimp shells on the floor.
I have seen the whole act at Yellowstone as well. Get selfies with bison. Very interesting driving skills. Smoke like chimneys. And boy can these people spit. Anywhere. You can talk all you want about your bad German, French, Russian and Israeli tourists but the mainland Chinese win the whole fortune cookie, hands down.
