I. Am. Going. To. KILL!!!!

I agreed to take on a student for a very generous (to him) fee (it was basically 25% of my usual rate), as a favor to a friend. After getting jerked around by him for three weeks now about when we can meet face to face, I get this in my email:

What I mean is not to be acted as your student. We are friends. we can learn from each other.

So I don’t need to pay any tuition,I can buy lunch or dinner for you many times,because we are friends,not to refer to the education money.

The chiseling two-faced duplicitous little cheat! Everybody in China does this — tries to get the status of “friend” and then use that to get free lessons. It’s what the hookers on Nanjing Road do for Odin’s sake — three minutes of “chat”, and then you’re a “friend” and you have to pay for their expensive drinks for three hours before they proposition you. (Believe what you will, but that’s mostly not from first-hand experience.)

Honesty and honor, two things Chinese (Chinese men, at least) completely f***ing lack.

  1. So did you sign a contract already? I think it’s a fair-enough deal. If I were his tutor, I won’t teach him everything he needs but only what I think the meals are worth. Heh.

    If a man were to proposition me and he can only pay with cakes and pastries, a cream brulee would entitle him to a blowjob but a chocolate strawberry mousse would give him a blowjob WITH swallowing.

  8. Yeah, your vocabulary triggered the filters, and then the multiple comments added to the damage. All cleared now.

    Anyhow, I don’t usually deal in paper contracts, because they’re essentially worthless here. I’ve told him to go to hell, and if he ever wants me to help him with his English, he’s getting no deals or discounts in the future, and will have to pay several weeks in advance.

    When they’ve actually paid money, you can trust them. A little.

    (PS — And for a creme brulee and a strawberry mousse, you would… ? πŸ˜€ )
