Attention Shoppers: YOU'RE BEING RIPPED OFF!

I've got a new rule for my wife when she's out analyzing retailers in Shanghai (shopping): Never buy anything from a store that displays photos of foreign diplomat's wives. They might as well post a sign that says, "Attention Shoppers: YOU'RE BEING RIPPED OFF!" Two corollaries to that rule are: "Never buy anything from a store in China where you're the only Asian customer" and "Never buy anything from a store in China where the salespeople speak better English than you do. "

Oh yeah, and finally, "Never get involved with land wars in Asia."


A plug, if you will:
