Anyway, just when I started to pee at the urinal, the attendent came behind me and

peeing, but hey! it's China, maybe pee-time isn't off-limits. So I started to answer him. Big mistake.

some refreshing gum, sir!" he cheerfully said.

Needless to say, for the rest of my time in China, I kept my mouth shut and shook
my head vigorously to signal my not needing a massage everytime I entered a bathroom
