This is a question Little Victories II

I once got bumped up to first class in the 90 minute leg of a 16 hour flight. Tell us about your insignificant little triumphs and minor victories. (Driving a Honda Accord doesn't count).

DIY cunts
I was doing up the nursery before the arrival of our daughter. Went to B&Q in Beijing and got three tins of paint, brushes, thinners, etc. At the till there were three guys "operating" it, in the traditional council way of one working and two watching. Guy on the till says there was a barcode missing on one of the brushes.

"Oh," I say.

"You need to get another brush."

"Surely one of you can do it," I say.

They look at me utterly dumbfounded. Customer service is a concept that's utterly alien in China, like not hawking up your phlegm and splurting it everywhere. "Oh no..." he says. "We are all needed here."

OK, whatever. Sure you are. I go and hunt down the brush. I return to pay for my goods. Dumbass on the till only charges me for one pot of paint. And I say nothing and leave.
