There are a lot of cons and pros in China. Things happen here that you might never imagine from your own country. But if you have to stay thus you have to adapt yourself. Enjoy your time!

The thing that bugs me the most is cutting in line. It drives me crazy when I'm standing in line and other people push their way to the front. Can't stand it..

pick up bad drivers. they have a lot of regulations but just don't follow. the situation is much better on most newly-built expressways and a road toll may eliminate most mad drivers.

A tied race: bad toilet vs spitting... competing for the worst. What does it indicate/hint?

Indicating more complainings on personal behaviors than publick infrastructures. I consider only "bad toilet" can be counted for the category of public infrastructures but the rest are behavior or education -related.

Im 1 of those awful parents who let their kids pee in the street. We are an intergrated family, as in I (am euro) live with my husband and his parents (as a lot of chinese do) My MIL has taught me how the chinese "potty train" their kids, as disp nappys here are crappy and expensive. It involves a whistling sound and a tree in the street or a gutter as you hold your baby to shushu (pee) My older son just whipps his nickers down anywhere- much to my horror and I have to stop him. Like I have said we use the gutter or some plant to shushu into BUT some parents dont. I have seen kids poop in the middle of the hospital floor and the grandparents just leave it :evil: - some people are really gross.
I dont like to haggle and I know the price is always way overblowen because Im a forgiener and I hate that.
I hate people touching and grabbing at my kids :x
I think the squat toilets are smelly but mostly more hygenic for public use then sitdown 1s. They were Blardy awful when I was preggy though, had some close calls to falling in afew times! I have seen shoe prints on sit down toilets and that really made think.
Electricity seems to be expensive here. in winter we had a bill 1 month over 1100 kwai, everybody else in the building had 3-500 kwai, :o while my mum in Beijing enjoys her central heating so cheaply (it is gas though)
