How do u respond when Taiwanese tell you what to do? Momopi?

Post by Winston » October 26th, 2007, 8:41 am

One annoying thing I’ve noticed is that with most Taiwanese people I meet, there seems to be this underlying assumption on their part that I need to be “told� what to do, as though they have the right to tell me what to do. I know that the Chinese see a hierarchy to things like social relationships and family, but how have you other Asian Americans dealt with this? Momopi?

If the person in question pays your bills... take it like a man, smile and nod.

If the person is of minor consequence, feel free to pull a "Jesus" and respond to their question, with a question. Alternatively you could quote Biblical/religious or Confucian maxims.

If the person is of little or no consequence, ignore them or flip 'em off.
