This was too long to tweet for him, on his @rhuinchina account. A random message I received from Roger this morning:

You know what I hate about China?  Everytime you ask someone something, regardless of what you ask – the conversation goes something like this…

Me: “Do you know where to get laundry detergent?”
Them: “Over there or walk straight”

Me: “Do you know how much it would cost?”
Them: “Not much or pretty expensive”

Me: “Do you know approximately how far it is?”
Them: “Not far or very far”

Me: “Do you know what the temperature is?”
Them: “Not cold or very hot”

(I will put this in my “OUTRAGE” category for Roger.)
