Jeremiah’s A Slice of Chinese Life Wisdoms, Part 1

Chinese people can’t back up/turn their cars.

I know it’s sort of a cliche to complain about the driving of Asian people, but I have to. Now, let me make it clear: the drivers here do a wonderful job of squeezing in between other cars on small-laned streets, and no one seems to drive above 40 miles an hour, which is nice, but there is one catch: They can’t turn their cars. After being here two weeks, this is what I’ve decided: Give a Chinese man a Dodge Omni and an eight-lane road in which to complete a u-turn, and he’ll only have to back up twice. It really is something to see.

So it is an genetic thing not to be able to drive? Mmmmm. Interesting. You may be on to something.
