BLURB

Have you ever had to go through a security check at the subway, but you didn’t care, just cut through and the kids supposed to stop you couldn’t actually do anything? If not, only then will you think your job is actually pretty good. Because there are positions out there more pointless than the one Sisyphus had, having to roll a huge boulder up a mountain and watch it roll back until it hit him again and again for all eternity. Having lived in China for years, why do you feel like your street has been under construction without end? Would it be possible that once the power cables were fixed, the same workers blacktop the ditch only to reopen it the next day to fix the telephone cables…or is it just a dream? What do the people feel whose only job is to sit at the entrance of Shanghai Railway Station and repeat the word “fapiao”, hoping to sell you fake receipts? These are questions that one keeps asking, but let’s face it… a laowai will never get an answer for those. [Andras Gal]
