This afternoon I was sitting at a McDonald’s restaurant in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, having my Big Mac™. All of a sudden a young kid, about 6 years old, came to my table, without saying anything, he just took a french fried and begin eating it. To say the least I was very surprise.
I am even more surprise that it was a local Chinese boy who did this. As my readers may know, I had always had the impression that local Hong Kong people are shy and not talkative. The action of this young boy is totally out of character for the typical Hong Kong children.
Don’t get me wrong, I think this sort of openness is a good thing. Although, I thihnk the boy may not have simply took the french fried and started eating it. May be he should have asked.
On the other hand, I don’t think young children, for that matter adult, should be eating things given by strangers.
What this incident actually points out may be the lack of education and teachings Hong Kong parents have on their children now a days.
