China Experience – When The Woman Peed and Stripped at the Airport
According to a Sina. A quick scan of the top Chinese headlines offers a hint. For the past couple days, virtually every news portal in the country has devoted top real estate to the story of yet another fight in Hong Kong over a child from the mainland evacuating his bladder in public. According to police, the fracas began on April 15, when a mainland couple allowed their 2-year-old son to urinate on a street in Mongkok.
While waiting for a bus earlier this week, I was abhorred, though not surprised, to see a girl of around eight years of age urinating next to the bus stop. The child seemed embarrassed at first, but at the insistence of her grandmother, she relieved herself right there. The mother took out a wet wipe to clean the girl's hands, and then they casually shared a pear. Gauging from their accents, the three were not from Shanghai. This girl was obviously too old to be exposing herself on the street, and you could see the disgrace on her face, but it's not the first time in Shanghai I've witnessed an adult encouraging a child to indiscreetly pee in public.
