Labor Day Holiday Is a Disaster

Post by SitangCampus » Sat May 04, 2019 2:39 am

Things easy elsewhere may become very difficult in China due to the largest population in the world and to the fact that they like to do the same thing at the same time. If it is in a stadium to cheer for a home team, that is fantastic, but on other occassion, like in travel, a disaster is an understatement.

Labor Day holiday is 4 days long, spanning from May 1 to May 4. It is not easy for the people to get a time for travel out of the busy calendar, so all people go out to enjoy themselves, at the same time, yes, at the same and very time.

A few photos will get you know the real deal.

Perhaps they have different cultures from other people in the world. They have no other choice because the supply and demand are not equal. People need to have some fresh air, but all the year round they have only a few days left to do so, and the population is so big that you of other countries will not be able to feel the pain until you live with us for a while.

After a couple of times of such nightmares, people begin to learn a lesson.

Maybe they could try "flexitime". So people would work at different times, or have holidays at different times. And if it's really organized, people can choose their own holiday times, within reason.

I think it started to allow different working HOURS, but it could be different working DAYS or even WEEKS maybe:

It is hard for all the members of a family to have the same day off, that is the point. You alone can do a lot of things without too many considerations, but like Trump-Kim meeting, you can set only one day out of the whole year for this purpose, because it is not just the business of these two men, it involves too many people and things.

Madame May is in great trouble handling a handful of British people who want to enjoy the benefits of Europe and to avoid the duty of Europe at the same time, she feels like ants on hot stove, but if she was in China, she might have considered toi kill herself right there, because it is a real trouble to face a more huge population and a more vast territory.

May may see the end of May.
