Here’s What Shopping in China Looks Like



I found this sign at the Silk Market in Beijing while shopping for some stuff that are fake (Yes, I used to buy them). It’s a huge market, a shopping paradise, for those who have a knack for knock-offs.

The words in this sign board might be rude but only few salespersons are actually using them. These words come handy to them when a shopper bargains so hard and so low that they won’t stoop down to the price he/she wants.

So, be warned. If you don’t wanna be told one of these words in your face, make sure to pay a price that both of you are happy.

Here’s What Shopping in China Looks Like

Translations for 8-10, according to my students:

8. You are poor! Don’t ask me!

9. You are a man! (I’m not sure how this sentence is related to shopping)

10. Look at your disgusting face!
