Just for a Laugh: Shopping in China

Saw this is Sabrina's blog... funny... hahahah... culture sensitivity in play!

A man on a business trip to China wanted to buy some gifts for his kids.

He went to a shop and found a nice looking CD player. Wary of buying inferior goods, he asked the shopkeeper, 'What would happen if this does not work?'

The shopkeeper quietly pointed to the only sign in English that read, 'GUARANTEE NO SPOIL'.

Feeling assured, he paid for the CD player and returned to his hotel. He tried to use the CD player but it would not even switch on. He quickly returned tothe shop and asked for a refund or an exchange for another unit.

When the shopkeeper refused to give either, the man pointed to the sign assuring him of a guarantee.

The shopkeeper then said, 'Brother, you are in China. We read from the right to the left.'
