Ugly Singaporean Uncle Asked Waitress To Compensate 300 RMB
A Zaobao reader, 蓝俊显, has wrote in to Zaobao to tell an incident happened during his precious trip to Tibet.
It was during mid July. His group is the very 1st few groups which is allowed to enter Tibet after the 314 protest. Therefore, all the parties in Tibet is doing their very best to please the group.
After the group visited Potala Palace, they had their lunch in a restaurant in the Lhasa city. The tour guide had informed the restaurant to avoid beef because there were Buddhists in the group. However, there was still a plate of fried beef served. An uncle, who is in his sixties, couldn’t tell that it was beef, and started eating. He made a fuss after a friend told him that it was beef. The restaurant manager and waitress both came to apologize but he refused to accept it. Then he told the poor waitress that, he had eaten 3 pieces of beef, so she had to compensate him with 300 RMB. Helplessly, the waitress took out 300 RMB and gave to that uncle. The uncle then said that fortunately he “just ate 3 pieces but not 5″, if not she had to compensate 500 RMB.
Another member in the same table suggested that he donate the money to charity. The uncle replied that he deserved the money, why must he donate it?
The China tour guide was so irritated by this uncle that he wrote about the incident in his blog, and commented that he has had encounters with Singaporeans for close to 10 years, this one is the most irritating one.
I wonder if Buddha will 保佑 this kind of “devoted” Buddhist or not?
