When I wrote my blog regarding 10 things I hate about China, it was spring. At that time, the weather is still cool that there’s no need for air-conditioning. Now that it’s the peak of summer, air-conditioning is a relief to the scorching heat of the sun. However, in China, most of them seem scared of the cold.
A couple of days ago, I was lucky enough to ride an air-condition bus home. It was hot and humid and I badly need something cool. When I entered the bus, it felt heavenly. However, when I sat down behind a Chinese guy, he suddenly yanked open the window so wide and let the humid air in. I was so annoyed so I tap his shoulder and asked him to close the window. He replied in Chinese, “I moved to this seat because I want to open the window. I’m scared of the cold!” I was fuming inside and was contemplating banging him in the head and say “This is an airconditioned bus! If you hate the cold, you shouldn’t ride this bus!” I didn’t do it but I almost did. Maybe next time I will.
