A couple of days before I got paid before CNY, I was offered a gift. I made sure to ask whether it was free or not. They said it was a free gift, but my intuition told me to be ready for a rip-off. When pay day came, I was paid less than I was supposed to and even when they fixed the “error” it was still wrong. I suppose they had to find a way of paying for all those hongbows. Dishonesty is so ingrained in the culture here, that gullibility is a luxury only a few can afford.
