This is a question Abusing freebies

A friend of mine recently attended a 'Champaign Lunch', where he was compelled drink as much fizzy stuff as he could between the first and last courses. In an ideal world we'd ask restaurant staff to tell us stories about fatties stuffing themselves at All You Can Eat places, but we recognise that our members don't all work in the catering trade, so for the rest of you - tell us something about abusing freebies. BTW: Bee puns = you fail.

I hear you, china is dirt cheap, but about 10 or so, of us that night to the shamrock (Hangzhou) we were drinking English drinks Guinness (£4.50 pint) Carlsberg (about £2 pint) plus spirits which were very expensive - these were higher prices due to importing. if you go somewhere in china and get a Carlsberg for anything less than 25 Yuan chances are its fake... they reckon 60% of the lager over there is fake, especially the bottles.

We were also drinking loads of spirits and playing xi xuh ( i think that’s correct) basically its that dice game they play in Pirates of the Caribbean 2, very enjoyable and gets you drunk. we also had food.

I got a bit angry when we realised - as its just not in my culture to accept such a freebie. The guy did it without expecting anything back.. When I told my Chinese work mates they said is quite normal to meet people like this, some Chinese people believe if you share your money, the money will return someday to you in some manner - not necessarily through he person you gave it to. that’s why people give Chinese envelopes out at new year with money in it. They hope it will bring them good luck - in a sense.
