I overheard three random conversations while I was out and about in Shanghai yesterday which made me smile.
In the streets
Man : "What is in your bag ? It is so heavy."
Woman : "Just my computer."
Man : "It must be a desktop!"
Overheard from a man helping a woman to carry her cabin size luggage.
In the lift
"Never mess with a Shanghaiese middle age woman!!"
Overheard from a Shanghaiese woman who refused to give way to a young lady in the lift accusing her of being fake by speaking in English and insisting she should stand closer to the lift exit if she wanted to get out fast.
At a restuarant
"Sorry. We have to stop taking in customers as we ran out of food to serve."
It was not even 7 pm in a busy shopping mall on a Sunday!
