pissing money 
14 January 2009, 10:27pm

so last night, daisy and i went to get some sushi. it's been a long time, so we were both very much looking forward to it. it had gotten a bit late (we had to call to change our reservation, and didn't want to miss that one too), so we took a taxi.the driver turned the meter on, confirmed where we said we were going, then said okay, hang on. he ran out of the car to pee. one thing i can't get used to is how, in china, you can pee anywhere. which also means there is probably pee everywhere.what bugged me about this is not that he couldn't wait five minutes to pee. or that he kept us waiting for about a minute. what bugged me was that he got out right after he turned on the meter (in china, fares are determined by time and distance, to account for bad traffic). daisy clearly didn't care, so i stopped talking about it.but then, once we got to the sushi place, our fare was 16 yuan. i handed him a twenty, pissed because it should have been the clean 15 yuan. and then, he asked us for a 1yuan coin! the nerve! i suggested that daze tell him to piss off, and that we wouldn't pay the extra 1 because it was on his pee time, but she didn't.anyway, what's that all about! we had to pay for this dude to waste our time!
