they have to show 6-8 teeth when the smile. they put a chopstick in between the teeth to practice for hours. and they demand them to smile genuely!
it angries me really that ppl do this! so called "training" is inhuman. what kind of training result this could have? soar jaw and frustrated feelings i suppose. god, who cares if they show 6 teeth or no teeth at all. how can ppl be treated like that smile genuely and be happy about it deep within?
they want them to show politeness? they should give them politeness first starting with treating them right. prepare enough drinks for them, use better materials for their uniform for summer, care about them, ask them what they can do to make their job easier!
I believe emtions are contageious and even those girls through the hard training can fake a smile (probably like those old women's face injected with botulin), they surely can not fake heart with passion for the job.
it makes me sad that this happens more and more in China now...
