THEY ARE INDEED FKING RUDE.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Taiwan for a business trip. Before I arrived, I had heard a lot of stories about the Taiwanese people being “rude” and not being very friendly. I was apprehensive, to say the least. I was really curious to see if this was true and if I would encounter any rudeness during my stay.
Well, let me tell you, I was not disappointed. From the moment I stepped off the plane, I was met with an unwelcoming attitude. The airline staff were quite cold and unhelpful, ignoring my questions and not even making eye contact.
The same attitude continued throughout my stay. Everywhere I went, people seemed to be in a rush and not willing to help me out with anything. Even when I asked for directions or help with something, the response was always dismissive and unhelpful.
I soon started to realize that the stories I had heard were true. The Taiwanese people really are quite rude. It seemed like they had no respect for anyone who wasn’t a local or didn’t speak Chinese. Even when I tried to speak Chinese, my attempts were met with a cold and dismissive attitude.
I also noticed that this rudeness extended to other foreigners as well. I saw many people being treated rudely and ignored, simply because they weren’t local. This made me feel even worse about my own experience.
I eventually came to the conclusion that the Taiwanese people are indeed very rude. This was a huge shock to me, as I had expected a much more welcoming and friendly attitude from the people I encountered.
However, I also learned something from this experience. I learned that it’s important to be respectful and polite when dealing with people from other cultures. Even if they don’t seem to be doing the same, it’s important to treat them with respect and kindness.
This experience also taught me to be more patient when dealing with people from different cultures. I now understand that it takes time to get to know someone and learn about their culture. I also understand that not everyone is going to be as welcoming and friendly as I expected.
Overall, the experience of visiting Taiwan was a valuable one. Although I didn’t get the warm welcome I was expecting, I still learned a lot from my experience. I now understand that it’s important to be respectful and patient when dealing with people from other cultures, and that not everyone is going to be as welcoming and friendly as I expected.
